[vid/news] Easter Eggs You May Have Missed in MFBTY’s “BangDiggyBangBang” MV

So we’re off! MFBTY has officially released the Wondaland album, and they didn’t disappoint. While the album is considered “underground pop,” loyal hip-hop fans of the trio will not be disappointed. Before we get into the album, a reminder of the (1 of 3) debut single: “Bang Diggy Bang Bang.”


That hook just gets you, huh? As expected, the song took off, and the entire album topped charts within hours. It was so popular, that it took over 17/20 spots on Daum.net music charts.

As for the video, there have been many compliments regarding the playful vibe and MFBTY’s dance skills (Don’t worry, hip-hop OGs, it was only a few moves). The fast pace and array of colors in “Bang Diggy Bang Bang,” makes it easy to miss underlying messages. Luckily, our keen eyes and MFBTY expertise were able to catch them. Here’s what you missed:

1)There’s A Meaning Behind The Pillow Fights

When MFBTY was still a joke between Tiger and fans, they created “wonderland,” which was a figurative place where JK and fans could say and do anything, almost like a child getting lost in a mysterious world. Tiger would playfully say, “Let’s pillow fight,” if he sensed someone would disagree with something he said. It soon became a daily saying for him, and fans would reply back, “Pillow fight!” In the beginning of the video, we see JK walking with a pillow in his hand (properly marked “Bang Diggy Bang Bang”) and his destination is a pile of MFBTY pillows. Given the name came from MFBTY fans before there was an MFBTY, it was only appropriate that the debut video started with this shout out to “wonderland.”

2) The “Lost” T-Shirt

The “LOST” t-shirt appears subtly repeatedly throughout the video. While meaningless on the surface, this is another homage to the original “wonderland,” where fans could get “lost” in the madness.

3) Rap Monster’s Jasmine Poops Blow Up Toilets… Literally

We saw BTS Rap Monster already kill it on MFBTY’s “Bucku Bucku/Shy Shy,” and the last line of his verse was what really surprised people: “Even my poop smells like jasmine tea.” The video for “Shy Shy,” was shot the same day as “Bang Diggy Bang Bang,” and Rap Mon wanted to reiterate his poop smell was so unbelievably good, it would literally “blow up toilets.” Now we know his jasmine poops are green in gaseous form.

4) Duckie Dale, The Bangles, and Indiana Jones Made Cameos

If you just understood that, you are an 80’s geek who related to this vid a little too well. There were an unbelievable amount of nerdy awesome 80’s moments thrown in, but the one that stood out to us was this shot. Bizzy’s pompadour hairstyle is reminiscent of famous 80’s icon, Duckie Dale from the film Pretty In Pink. Tasha’s head band takes us back to The Bangles “Walk Like An Egyptian” music video, which helped popularize Egyptian inspired fashion in that time. Leave it to Tiger to exaggerate the turban look and go borderline Indiana Jones (We debated if it was more Douglass Quaid from Total Recall, but that movie just made it out of the 80’s). Their stylist, Little E of electronic band, EE, did a heck of a job taking us back through time.

5) Tiger’s Silent Praise of Bruce Lee

Tiger has a background as a martial art teacher, and the one person he always aspired to be was Bruce Lee. Tiger has even emulated Bruce’s hair from time to time, and never scoffed at a comparison of him and his idol.

6) Bizzy Is Part Of A Group That Only Makes Up 10% of the Population

Bizzy drops a line referring to luck on his lefty while holding up his hand in the music video. Bizzy’s nickname is “Lucky Lefty,” because he is left handed.

7) That “808” Is Not An Area Code

808

That haunting hook is not a shout out to Hawaii. The code “808” actually has two meanings. The first referring to the  Roland TR-808 drum machine, which may have created some of the hard sounds in the song. “808” is also a police code for disturbing the peace with the sound of bass. Thus, the hook really means, “Here comes the bass that’s going to rock the neighborhood.”

The full length “Wondaland” album is now available in stores and on Itunes.

The hook of this song is already found to be highly addictive by fans. The artists rap in a black and white background, which accentuates their natural charisma.

Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae rapped with their untouchable flows while Bizzy had his on style combined with his signature unique gestures.

BTS’s Rap Monster shined in this track, defying all stereotypes of an “idol rapper.” Within his rap were messages to his haters who try to bring him down.  The message was cleverly delivered with his witty, confident, rhythmical flow confirming his position as one of the heavy contenders for best rapper in the music scene.

MFBTY’s first full album, Wondaland. will include 16 tracks with 3 title songs.

Another interesting track that’s included is the track, “Fart Dance” made by Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae’s son, Jordan. Track number 2, “Hello Happy” has a mystery guest feature.

Wondaland is highly anticipated within Korea as well as all around the world. The album will be released on March 19th, 12PM KST via various online music sites. Pre-orders are available now from all major music retailers.

[video] MFBTY “Wondaland” Teaser Released

March13th-Feel Ghood Music released the first teaser for MFBTY’s “Wondaland” album on their Twitter account. In the first scenes, we see some back footage from the “Sweet Dream,” music video, but then are taken on a wild trip through a colorful unknown. In between scenes, we get a black and white shot of MFBTY with some of the featured artists on the album, including EE, Dino-J, and most noticeably, BTS’ Rap Monster. The vid ends with a vocal rift from YoonMiRae’s 2007 song, “Goodbye Sadness, Hello Happiness.” and then the release date. It’s not clear what MFBTY has in store for their debut single, or the story of the music video, but that all fits into the theme of “Wondaland.”

Edit 3/13: Previously it was reported JeonInKwon was in the screen cap. Only  MFBTY, Rap Monster, Dino-J, and the members of EE appear.

[news] Full List of #MFBTYAlbum Features: RapMon, JeonInKwon, Yong JunHyung, Son SeungYun, Dok2, Windy City, EE, Dino-J

The line up for MFBTY’s album is now complete.

Feel Ghood Music announced today, March 11th, the full line up for MFBTY’s album. Previously, it was revealed JeonInKwon, BTS’ Rap Monster, Beast’s YongJunhyung, Dok2, and Son Seung Yun would feature on the album. Today, they revealed Windy City’s lead singer, Kim Ban Jang, EE, and new artist, Dino-J, will also participate, bringing together a power house team of artists. MFBTY’s mission as a project group is not to create a specific genre of music, but to create music that just feels good, at home or at a large performance. This combination of different styles will undoubtedly create a memorable album.

YunJoung Lee, from the former punk rock band Pipi Band, joined with husband, Lee HyunJoon to form EE, sometimes referred to as EETOTALART.  They combine electronic sound with artistic performances, thus their stage name. They were the first Korean artists to participate in the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, 2011. The duo represented Korea for Amnesty International’s “Peace” project that promoted human rights. More recently, the duo has been a grand success on the world music scene, receiving an invitation to the South by Southwest 2015 (SXSW), the largest music festival in the world.

Kim BanJang is a vocalist and percussionist of the band Windy City, which debuted as a member of band, Assoto Union. In 2013 , Windy City participated in the Sierra Nevada World Music, and massive music conference and festival, South by Southwest (SXSW) .

In addition to these artists, the album will feature artist and rookie Feel Ghood Music producer, Dino- J.

MFBTY debuted with a mini album, “Sweet Dream,” in 2013. They released an album under the Drunken Tiger name in 2013 called, “The Cure,” and then rebranded themselves under YoonMiRae’s name, releasing single, “Angel.” The upcoming March album marks the first official full length MFBTY album under their own name.
