The first Yoonmirae hip-hop album was so precious to me, that I remember being heartbroken when someone stole it from me (yes, that album was that hot). It has remained a favorite hip-hop album 16 years later, and fans have waited ever so patiently for a part 2.
And on July 5th, 2018, we will finally have it.
Yoonmirae’s “Gemini 2” track list was released on July 3rd by Feel Ghood Music, and it was announced the title song, “YOU & ME,” will feature fellow FGM artist, Junoflo.
While the feature with Tiger JK and song, “Cookie (assumingely about Jordan)” are of interest, the first song on the album is definitely eye-catching.
If you’ve been living in the 90’s and don’t know what social media is, then you’ve completely missed the big news that Drunken Tiger, Yoonmirae, Bizzy (aka MFBTY) are coming to renowned awesome-encompassing South by Southwest.
Yes, you read that correctly: MFBTY is performing in America.
Over the weeks, we’ve been posited with a number of questions, including if the group will do extra shows nationwide, and if additional Feel Ghood Music artists are coming.
With the performance less than 3 weeks away, we’ve broken down the most common questions to help all fans attending.
The Basic Who/What/When:
The group will be performing FRIDAY, MARCH 17TH, at The Belmont, Austin, TX. They will be part of SXSW annual KPOP Night Out (hosted by KOCCA),a showcase of mainstream and independent Korean artists. Others performing include Red Velvet, No Brain, Big Phony, Hyorin, and Galaxy Express.
On The SXSW website, you will see that MFBTY technically is not listed as an artist, but Yoonmirae an Drunken Tiger are. While listed as 2 separate artists, they will have Bizzy, and two other Feel Ghood Music artists, Junoflo and Ann Onejoining them.
The set is to last 80 minutes (check SXSW GOfor details). That is A LOT OF SONGS.
Passes don’t just buy you entry into this performance, but EVERYTHING at SXSW.
Music wristbands will get you entry into all SXSW music shows.
The event is 18+, contrary to past years being 21+.
Will We (The International Website) Be There?
Yes, we will be at the show hours ahead, maybe with some fun swag 🙂
Will There Be MFBTY Merchandise?
That is something up to Feel Ghood Music. We have not heard anything about merchandise.
Can I Bring My DSLR Camera?
With the exception of press, attendees will generally not be allowed to bring professional cameras. All cameras will be inspected at the door. Phone cameras are allowed.
Will MFBTY Be Doing Any Other Shows at SXSW Or On Tour?
No, there is only one show. MFBTY hardly does US shows, so go to this or forever hold your peace.

Out-of-Towners, Book Your Plane/Hotels ASAP.
The number of available and affordable places to stay is drying up (AirBNB is down to less 1% availability for close places under $120/night). The area you will be looking at is Downtown/University of Texas Austin. The further out, the more availability, but less transport options. Make a decision this week if you’re still contemplating flying in.
What To Pack
Portable chargers, wall chargers, umbrella, lightweight clothing, extra shoes. It’s warm and rainy in Austin. Your phone will die, so bring everything you need to keep you connected.
Getting To The Venue
Downtown Austin is serviced by a number of rails, buses, and carriages. However, parking is a P-I-T-A. There is no Uber or Lyft either. Plan ahead for other car sharing options.
Don’t Just Go To One Show
SXSW is a massive music, film, interactive, EVERYTHING festival. Tons of free food, parties, drinks, etc. There are a number of social media accounts monitoring free events (most summarized here). Enjoy your time while in town!
Get Back To the Airport Early, Especially If You’re Leaving Sunday
SXSW brings in thousands of people, most of whom leave Sunday. The Austin airport is tiny, and lines will be backed up (yes, even with TSA Pre-Check). Allow for 3-4 hours prior to your flight.
If you have any other questions not answered here, email us or hit us up on any of our social media channels.
See you in Austin!

December seems to be the month for YoonMiRae singles!
Just a year ago, our queen T released the emotional hip-hop ballad,“Angel,” with the rest of MFBTY’s members, Tiger JK & YoonMiRae. Amidst our celebrations, we received the cover photo for her new single, “This Love,” and this exclusive from Feel Ghood Music:
YoonMiRae finished her music video shoot last week, with husband, Tiger JK, making a guest appearance on set. Above, Tasha is seen with Princess Leia-esque buns, and appropriately so, Yoda slippers.
“This Love” is emotion filled and is said to fit the winter vibe. Get the tissues ready.
SEOUL, July 29 — South Korean rapper Yoon Mi-rae has teamed up with a German DJ for her new single coming out this week, her agency said Wednesday.
“Capture the City,” scheduled to hit stores on Friday, is a collaboration between YoonMiRae, South Korea’s top female rapper, and Boys Noize, a German electronic music producer who topped the Beatport chart with his debut single “Next Order.”
“We expect Yoon to show what an ’empress of hip hop’ sounds like in this collaboration single,” Feel Ghood Music said in a statement.
“Capture the City” tells listeners to look at their cities from a new perspective by mixing noises heard around Seoul, according to the agency.
Previously, the DJ has worked with South Korean boy band BigBang on its special album “Still Alive” and G-Dragon, one of BigBang’s members, on his solo album “Coup d’Etat.”
YoonMiRae has been recognized as a “diamond in the rough” by the U.S. music website MTV Iggy. She also made the top 12 female rappers list by the same website in 2011.
We at Drunken Tiger International, Drunken Tiger Brasil, and BizzyBTBT want to wish our sis, Yoon MiRae, a Happy Birthday today! As our gift to her, we polled our followers on how they would describe Yoon MiRae in one word. Our followers were told they would receive a special prize by participating, but were not aware of the bigger project in the works. This was the result (and the prize they were all vying for!). Congrats! Now your love for MiRae will be seen for sure. Thanks to everyone who participated!
