After accepting Tiger JK’s request, Yong Junhyung recorded a verse for the MFBTY album. This is the first time the two are working together.

An industry official said, “Tiger JK has been having a huge interest not only in BEAST songs, but also the songs that Yong Junhyung featured in with his rapping. He personally requested for him to collobarte.”

Before Yong Junhyung made a name for himself through composing and song-writing, he was a rapper that featured for other artists. He featured on songs like “Caffeine,” which was a song with Yang Yoseob from the same group, and “A Heart Aching Story” with Wheesung. Apart from this, he has also worked with JYJ, Kim Jaejoong, Baek Jiyoung, Park Shinhye, Eru, Ha Dong Kyun* and Lyn.

MFBTY is releasing a new album after 1 year and 6 months.

[full details] Tiger JK, Yoon Mi Rae, Bizzy (MFBTY) comeback finalized for March 19th

 

MFBTY, a project group comprised of Korean Hip Hop legends, Tiger JK, Yoon Mi Rae and Bizzy, have confirmed they will be supplying their fans with new music after just over 18 months since their previous mini album “The Cure” was released (under the Drunken Tiger name).

Tiger JK has confirmed that they will be releasing their first full album on March 19th, 2015, and returning to the stages, which was very welcome news for their fans all around the world. On this album, it is expected to have a strong line up from all genres of Korean music scenes. One confirmed collaboration is with Korean Idol group BTS leader Rap Monster, who has been seen hanging out with MFBTY in their offices recently.

MFBTY, which is an acronym for My Fans Better Than Yours, was created back in 2013 by Tiger JK, Yoon Mi Rae and Bizzy. They created this group so they could produce music that they love to perform on stage. MFBTY has been stirring buzz by releasing several hits with soulful vocals and addictive melodies as well as experimental tracks which combines hip hop, electronic, and progressive sounds into one. Their focus is to create feel-good music for themselves as well as their fans.

MFBTY has repeatedly proved their worth by topping the charts with their debut single, “Sweet Dream,” as well as the mini album title track “살자 – The Cure.” Yoon Mi Rae also released a solo track featuring the other MFBTY members (Tiger JK, Bizzy) last December – Angel, which also got the number one spot in several music charts in Korea. Their debut single, “Sweet Dream,” in particular gathered worldwide attention with its visually stunning music video produced by their creative director, Lumpens. US Billboard also mentioned the group in their articles, once again proving their presence around the world.

MFBTY also represented Korea in the world’s biggest music market festival MIDEM in France (2013). MIDEM representative, Bruno Crolet, highly praised MFBTY, stating that he had never seen Asian music performers be able to reach a Caucasian crowd and get them to put their hands up and be one with them, He dubbed it “the best performance at MIDEM.” Crolet also tweeted an article mentioning MFBTY showing his support and respect towards the group.

MFBTY is under their own record label, Feel Ghood Music. Apart from MFBTY themselves, there is also an electronic DJ, art directors, visual directors as well as other professionals who are signed under Feel Ghood Music, making them a versatile and unique record label. Their vision is to continuously evolve into a label that focuses on music as well as other parts of the culture. Feel Ghood Music had a great end of the year with Yoon Mi Rae’s single track, “Angel,” topping all charts.

[news/video] Highlights From Arirang After School; The Meaning Behind “Angel” and How MFBTY Really Are

Last night, MFBTY did their first and last interview for the year on Arirang’s Afterschool, a program where fans use Google Hangout to communicate with the stars directly. A year off screen took a toll on fan curiosity, and the group was not afraid to admit what they were up to during that long hiatus. (Warning: Spoilers ahead. Watch it first here.)

They started on a lighter note, with Tiger complimenting how nice the chairs were and how he was too broke to afford it. Tasha admitted her favorite color is purple, to which the hosts, Eric Nam, & Jimin, tempted her to take the purple chair back to the FGM office (Though we can’t imagine how hard that would be to haul from Seoul to UiJeongBu).

Tasha Purple Chair

The crew have been coordinating their own marketing tactics, and Bizzy admitted he asked fans how to say “Angel,” in their own language. After some light laughs about botched pronunciations, they talked about how “Angel,” came about. The song was sitting in the archives for nearly 4 years, but came alive as they felt it resonated with their recent experiences. The death of Tiger’s father was one of noticeable influence, but Bizzy also went through some family struggles during the year, particularly with his mother. It brought Bizzy back to the death of his grandmother, and the culmination of both thoughts led Bizzy to write to the “Angel” beat, with Tiger and Tasha following.

Some mysteries about the music video were also revealed, and while it seemed that the cinematography had deep meaning, we found out the meaning evoked was actually accidental. The famous black angel shot was randomly constructed by Lumpens overnight, and the black and white shot was done moreso for simplicity than emotional response. What fans take away from the video is up to them, and MFBTY is all for open interpretation.

INTL On Screen

DT INTL also got some screen time, and we asked Bizzy and Tiger to explain why they chose Bizzy to be the winner of the famous boxing scene. Turns out this was a product of randomness as well, with Lumpens shooting them shadow boxing in through the night. We also found out Bizzy spends more time in the ring versus the studio, a decision Tiger is not too thrilled about (Side note: Tiger admitted Bizzy’s new “pecs” help with the ladies, leaving Tiger a bit jealous. Boss, you’re married.)

Fans were later invited to ask questions to MFBTY directly, but we have to thank Julisa from Texas for having the best request. A few days ago, Feel Ghood Music released two pieces of hidden camera footage (here and here) of Tiger dancing to a beat made by producer, KonDQuest. The fam jokes often of Tiger’s “funky” moves, and Julisa was thankful for FGM’s shared video. She requested an encore; Tiger obliged.

Arirang confessed later that they also interviewed MFBTY’s managers about them. The management team only consists of two people, so the load they endure is not light. The group was at first excited to hear what they would say, but just like the rest of the fam, their managers were honest… brutally honest. The management are MFBTY’s ride home to Uijeongbu, and we have a feeling that 1.5 hour ride was very very awkward.

TonyIsDead

On a happier note, sister site, BizzionaryINTL, was lucky enough to be in the personal hangout with MFBTY. While the show didn’t let admin, Nisa, ask questions on air, she shared with us this post interview shot of her talking with Bizzy and MFBTY directly. It was their technical first time “seeing” each other, and Bizzy being the quiet one he is, had to be teased by Tasha and Tiger to open up more to the head of his fanbase. She asked who his angel was, and the answer was as you would expect.

[Op-Ed] Why We Have To Talk About MFBTY’s Outfits At Unforgettable2014

They may have taken the stage for only 10 minutes, but their look stole the show for weeks. MFBTY have long been fashion icons, but we are thoroughly enjoying the edgy look done for the night by new stylist, Eelittle.

The blue carpet look that stole everyone’s attention is actually from Korean suit designer, JimmyTheTailor. The suits are made of silk tafetta, a heavily structured material usually associated with wedding gowns. Its shiny appearance risks gaudy reflection when hundreds of flashes are around you, and let’s not talk about risking matching the carpet. Somehow, though, our trio was able to pull it off. Tasha and Tiger’s matching suits take couple outfits to a much classier level, and each of their looks reflects their individuality with such subtlety (JK’s hat resonates Johnny Depp, an actor he admires). What tops the outfit is the excellent slim fitting. Suit jackets are never meant to squeeze at the bust and suit pants should be fitted to maximize a flattering look. So kudos to Eelittle for giving MFBTY possibly the most memorable blue carpet look for the night.

KOREAM 2

The performance of “Get It In” and “Sweet Dream,” saw a quick wardrobe change. While Bizzy remained in his suit (ever had to perform in structured non-sweat wickering fabric? Brave man), Tasha was next seen wearing a classy lace faux cut out jumpsuit from Gucci Fall 2013This was apparently her personal pick and actually reflects how highly she values comfort. Tiger, however, chose an interesting true-to-himself ensemble for the Gala performance. Docked in a long wool coat and the same Johnny Depp hat, Tiger rocked an MLK t-shirt and sweatpants underneath. The outfit on paper sounds insane for an event of prestige, but it worked only because it’s Tiger.

[news] A Boss Like No Other! Tiger JK, Captured Helping Staff with Assembling Yoon Mi Rae Promo CDs

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/dca/9236986/files/2014/12/img_8636.jpg/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/dca/9236986/files/2014/12/img_8635.jpg

Rapper Tiger JK was seen helping out with his wife’s newly released single, “Angel.”

Tiger JK & Yoon Mi Rae’s record label Feel Ghood Music released the above photo via their official twitter account (https://twitter.com/FGHmusic), with Tiger JK actively helping other staff members with hands on work.

Tiger JK, dressed in casual attire, is seen sitting on the floor attaching stickers onto Yoon Mi Rae’s promo CDs. This is a contrasting image compared to his powerful stage presence, bringinig a smile to many fans.

Tiger JK also showed his friendly side, collaborating with his employees naturally (Tiger JK is the CEO of Feel Ghood Music along with Yoon Mi Rae).

Feel Ghood Music added the following comment to the photo, “Here you can see CEO, Tiger JK, working with Feel Ghood staff attaching stickers onto the Promotion CDs. Our CEO is actively participating in all tasks.”

Fans had many adulating comments:

“There is no CEO like Tiger JK.”
“Tiger JK is the best!”
“I want that CD!”
“Looks fun, I want to join in!”

Tiger JK, has contributed immensely on Yoon Mi Rae’s “Angel.” He featured on the track as well as the music video, where their kiss represented that they are each other’s angels. This kiss scene was hugely popular with fans.

As the song is about attaching wings of hope to those that need a helping hand, Tiger JK has most definitely becoming Yoon Mi Rae’s angel.

“Angel” is YoonMiRae’s first single track to be released under her new record label Feel Ghood Music.

Since being released on December 8th, the track has then topped all major music charts and has been received positively by critics.
