We Are Going to Interview MFBTY!

February 9, 2013


Share Post

In case you couldn’t tell from some of our other videos, we don’t get embarrassed easily. We’re dorky and massively uncool and don’t feel any shame in it. Not only do we not feel any shame in it, we made a job out of being dorks. So, now that we have the chance to do a video with people that are beyond cool, we’re thinking to ourselves, how is this gonna work? We like making our audience uncomfortable, but our interviewees? We can’t do that! But I feel like MFBTY will feel the forcefield of un-cool-ness surrounding the perimeter of our studio and they won’t be able to break through, like that scene from True Blood when the witches made that forcefield around their building and the vampires couldn’t come in. Man, I’ve just remembered how much that season sucked.

Anyhow, HELP US BE LESS UNCOOL! Give us some good questions we should ask them. There’s so much we want to speak with them about concerning the Korean music scene and their place in it, because we’re sure they’ve got TREMENDOUS insight they can provide. But what else? Let us know! Leave your question in the comment section and we’ll pick some of them for the interview. HELLS YEAH!

In case you haven’t seen MFBTY’s video for “Sweet Dream” you can see it here, and start preparing your questions!

  3. This is so awesome.
    Here’s my question, most of the world seems to regard the music scene in the USA as the global stage, do you think that makes it hard for you guys as well as anyone in any other country to have a chance to be taken as a serious global star, especially since most music stations in other countries don’t really give you guys that much airtime? Also how do you approach this so called global stage while to maintaining your own style?

  7. OOOOHHH~~ i really want this interview to be deep and talking about some substantial topics and not just the regular stuff like who smells the nicest or whatever questions like that. i know simon wants to get into the korean hip hop scene and understand it more, well, HELLO SIMON, you’re gonna be speaking to THE KING AND QUEEN OF K-HIPHOP and the awsome Bizzy of course, so make the best out of it and ask some awesome questions! as for me, i’ve read through the thread and basically any and all questions i could think of have been asked by the other nasties so i guess, for my own curiosity, any plans of collaborating with Epik High??? hehehe. i think that’s about it from me. oh, maybe you can ask them what their advice is for the rappers who’re trying to get their message out or any advice to idol rappers of today. thanks simon and martina!!! we wish you good luck! don’t be too nervous! these cool people are so nice and friendly you shouldn’t feel too intimidated by them!^^

  8. This question is for Tasha:

    From what I understand, your relationship with your old agency wasn’t the best.
    As your new none Korean fan, is there a way to purchase your older music like
    album Gemini (2002) without technically supporting your old agency? Much love
    and appreciation for being a fierce and positive female role model :)

  9. When creating a single that you think is really good and is something that is personal or that you can relate to, especially in a music industry predominantly dominated by flashy upbeat pop music that lasts for about a couple of months; what are your thoughts on how fast South Korea’s music industry moves, in comparison to the American music industry(For example an album in American can last for about a year in promoting in comparison to an album in South Korean which lasts for about a month)? Does that affect the quality of your music?

  10. I wanna ask you guys –
    1) what inspires you on the daily baisis that gives ideas for your songs and projects?
    2) Having MFBTY gangs all over the world – what does it fell like? do you feel the support of international fans?
    3) is Jordan already rapping? :) do you want him to be also involved into music world when he grows up?

    with all my love,

  11. As being an indie band, I like to know if you guys have worldwide fans, ’cause usually only the pop bands are “famous” on other countries. I love your songs, and like to say that are you guys doing a amazing work. Hugs and kisses. Ps.: I’m from Brazil, sorry for grammar errors ^^

  14. MFBTY question: Is there another MFBTY album in our future, or was this “Sweet Dream” project (which came out of left field) just a one-off? Also, do you plan on ever touring the world as MFBTY? If you do plan on touring, where are you going to go?

  18. I have a request; people who know Bizzy B, can you give me songs from him to listen to. I know he does a lot of features, but I like to hear his songs. Also i’ve seen a some interviews of MFBTY and he doesn’t talk much, so can you get him to talk and answer questions.

  19. I can’t express my excitement upon hearing about this interview. Swag! lol…

    It’s not much of a question but a request! Can they do a little lesson on how to be cool? lol.. and maybe a little tip on how to rap. I don’t think everyone can rap and sound “right”… is it just something you’re born with? either you have the voice to rap or not?

  20. This is SO exciting! And don’t worry, you guys are also very cool in your own way. (Don’t blame you for being nervous though. I would be SPAZZING, no joke. I almost am just vicariously.)

    Hopefully I’m not too late with my question.

    Do you feel that Korean hip-hop has the potential to inspire and/or support movements for social change in Korea, the way it did in hip-hop’s early history in the United States? Do you believe in music as a tool for social change?

  21. I must admit. I had heard a song or two of Drunken JK, but didn’t really know Tasha or Bizzy, so after seeing your post for MFBTY, I checked out their video. OMG!!! I am blown away! These guys are AH MAY ZING!!! Yes, lots of exclamation points. I’m always looking for Korean groups to introduce to my friends to and I think MFBTY is the group to do it! The Sweet Dreams video is super cool and they remind me of the Black Eyed Peas, except these guys have talent (oops, did I say that?).

    1. It’s already been asked below, but do they plan on releasing any albums in North America (especially with Tiger JK’s past history)? This would do great on the radio and in clubs.

    2. Does Tiger JK plan on collaborating with any North American artists?

    3. Will they be releasing any future albums (with more than 3 songs!)?

    4. For Tiger & Tasha – What language do they speak at home Korean or English? Is their son bilingual?

    5. Now that they are spokespersons for Schneeballen, do they get pastry’s for life?

  23. My interpretations of their music video were beyond the ideas I came up for papers I’ve done in university English classes. I’d like to know more about the meaning behind the music video and the song “Sweet Dream”, and also to know why they chose to do the theme that they did. The part of the music video where they’re filmed in a car to the scene on the bed just blew my mind into pieces about the possibilities of the meaning.

  24. After seeing this I immediately bought their mini-album on iTunes but I am a little distraught as to why there are only three songs of their available to purchase through there.

  26. OMG I’M SO EXCITEEEED! I was literally thinking the other day how awesome it would be if they came to the studio :P
    My question is: What do you think you of hip hop sound and/or culture being infused into mainstream KPop? Are some people getting it right while others are getting it wrong?

  27. Here’s my guestions! :) I’m btw HUGE fan of Tiger JK and Tasha so if you would ask my guestion I think I would cry of happiness! haha
    Guestions: 1. When you were young did you dream about being rapper/singer/DJ?
    2. This is for Tiger JK and Tasha, if Jordan(their son) begomes singer/rapper when his older what advises will you give to him?
    3. Since your “groups” name means “My fans better than yours” have you been thinking about going to other countries to visit your fans and is there any awesome moment that you remember because of your fans?

  30. Just watched Sweet Dream – pretty awesome, and I have a question for them.

    The Sweet Dream MV is one of my top favorite videos. How did y’all come up with the story behind it? Were there creative differences when trying to portray the story?

    Btw, from JoBeth (TX, USA. Yeah!)

  31. Do they have an official website or anything? I can’t find band info on them from a Google search…?

    4 years ago
  32. Cannot wait for the interview!!! Here are a few questions:

    1. Every one of you have been instrumental in the foundation of hip hop in Korea and have watched it evolve over the past two decades, where do you see the evolution of hip hop going next in Korea? Is the MFBTY project an example of where hip-hop will evolve next or your own personal exploration as artists?

    2. Since all of you were either born or grew up outside of Korea, how do you feel this impacted your musical careers in Korea and do you ever want to return to musical projects outside of Korea?

    3.How do you feel about how Hip-Hop is used in Kpop, do you feel it is a disservice to hip-hop or helps the public to accept the genre?

    4. In the opening it seems to indicate the song is it about a fateful love that for some reason other forces in life will not allow, and rest of the song seems to speak to this kinetic attraction of the two lovers thus ultimately their love is a like a “Sweet Dream?” What was the initial inspiration behind Sweet Dream?

    4 years ago
  33. OMG i’m so existed you guys can interview MFBTY. I really look up to Tiger JK and his wife Yoon Mi Rae. I think they would be great people to get to know and have a convocation with. I’m so jealous…. what i would give to be able to talk and share ideas and views points with them. but anyways here are some questions i thought up…

    1. Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae as a married couple is it hard to work together in the same group? How do you separate work and personal life?

    2. What was the inspiration behind this album? is there any personal story behind the album?

    3. What are your biggest obstacles you guys face in the current music industry?

    4. What are your future goals for MFBTY? Do you have any plans promoting over seas or would you rather stay in korea for now?

  34. In America it’s not uncommon to hear about beef between rappers, is it the same in the Korean hip hop scene? -Clarissa from Kansas

  35. My question : Why are your fans better than mine ? ( the fact that I don’t have any fans is not a valid point :p )

    From Montreal, Canada

  37. Loren, From USA!

    Question, How is it for Tiger JK and Tasha, to work having a son? If you guys travel outside of Korea, do you take Jordan with you? Or does he stays? Do he goes to presentations, whenever is possible? and do you guys think that he might become a rapper when he grows up? He has amazing and talented parents, it runs in the blood!

  38. Simon, I will have you know that Aegyozilla is my second favorite kpop rapper.

  39. Another question for MFBTY:
    You spoke in the MIDEM interview about how audiences listen to music in a different way now (more as a backdrop to a movie or video rather than just audio) compared to when you started your careers, do you think that this is why international audiences are now able to enjoy more music where they don’t understand most or any of the lyrics or is it for another reason? (like more access/sharing to different music thanks to the internet and global village? or just more awesome music is being made available lately?)

    Follow up: What were your strategy and goals in marketing yourself/your music internationally (rather than just within Korea) and how is it working out for you?

  40. Question for MFBTY: I grew up in India listening to music in many styles and languages, and I’ve loved R&B and Hip Hop in the United States. To me, music has always been about melody and rhythm, not language. But rap is a unique genre, with its flow and beat seemingly associated with English. Though Korean language is not as tone dependent as Mandarin, have you experienced any challenges while composing rap in Korean? My experience with rap in Indian languages has been mixed.

    I’m from Cambridge, Massachusetts and I’ve enjoyed your music.

    4 years ago
  41. I just realised that in almost all their interviews and articles lately, they get asked questions about Kpop and Gangnam Style or Big Bang or just kpop rapping in general. Do you think they’d be a bit sick of that by now?

    What do you think of having this interview focus more on them and Korean hip-hop instead of kpop?
    ….but then again, talking about kpop and popular idols would give them more publicity, which seems to be what they want.

    How about, before they interview, you ask them if they mind getting asked kpop-related questions? They might not mind, but there’s no harm in asking, right? :)

    *small voice* I also had some ideas to make it more fun – because y’know, being serious just isn’t EYK’s style yo :p Eg:
    – Having a hip-hop instrumental beat playing in the background, and conducting the entire interview in freestyle rap!
    – Print out a map and have them guess which countries the interview questions came from
    – Have them conduct a 60-second KMM on Sweet Dream (I mean, since they voted for it and all :p)
    – Play Settlers of Catan together
    I also like your ideas of competing with them for who can do the best aegyo or animal impersonation (inanimalation?)

    Because besides being hip-hop royalty, they also have a sense of humour :D

    • I think it would be best if Simon & Martina handle this. I think a relaxing interview would be the best choice.

      4 years ago
    • Have them rap the answers to a few of the questions (if they don’t wanna rap the whole interview).

      Make them do tongue twisters in order to get candy!

      4 years ago
    • So funny that you cross out “Play Settlers of Catan.” It’d be pretty awesome to have part of the interview done as a freestyle rap.

      4 years ago
  42. OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOSH!!!! I’m so beyond excited for this interview. Like, I was screaming like an idiot throughout the whole video. Woah Simon and Martina, I’m so glad you guys are getting the chance to interview so many awesome groups nowadays. (I’m also really excited for the Eric Nam interview!)

    4 years ago
  43. My question is for Tasha,
    Do you parents know how successful you have become and what do they think about it?

    Laura(Florida, USA)

    4 years ago
  44. 1. Would you let Aegyo-illa (Martina) rap and be a special guest on your next album?

    2. Do you have any say in the creative process of your music videos and how they express the content of your songs or is that left only up to the opinion and direction of a music video producer or just someone else? Because your recent video Sweet Dreams has alot of intense imagery and I’m curious at how it was inspired or thought up.

    4 years ago
  45. Congratulations!!!! I am so excited for you. I believe you will do a great interview. just be as you are and they will love you and have a great time. I am sure they already know about your awesomely cool uncoolness.

    My Question would be for Tiger JK and Tasha – How does being parents affect your music and your career as a whole?

    1) For Tasha: I think you’re amazing and I love you.
    -Is it hard to be a female rapper in Korea?
    -Most female rappers that I know of are idol rappers. Are there any female rappers that you look forward to that are up and coming? Or are there any idol rappers that you would like to see release an album?
    -Are they’re any artists [male or female] that you would like to collaborate with?
    -Do you plan on debuting in the US or releasing an English album?

    2) For Bizzy:
    -Bizzy! When are you going to come out with another EP or Album? Is there anything, be it features or albums, that we can look for during this year?
    -What is one album that has changed your life? Why did you decided to become an artist? Was there a defining moment for you?

    3) For Tiger JK: You’ve been in the business for a long time. While rap continues to evolve, not only in Korea but all over the world, do you worry about remaining relevant or do you try to stay true to you and the music that you make?

    4) For MFBTY:
    -Who are some artists [from anywhere in the world] that you would like to collaborate with?
    -Who are some of your favorite hip-hop artists? What are some of your favorite songs?
    -What is something that you would like old or new fans to know about Korea? Usually the only things that fans know about Korea are what they see on dramas, variety shows or Korean music videos. Is there something that you deem important to know about Korea?
    -Are there any genres of music that you would like to try that you haven’t already?
    -Do you plan on doing any concerts in the US this year? Also, will there ever be another Movement concert?! PLEASE SAY YES. I WILL MAKE MY WAY TO KOREA SOMEHOW.

        “How does it feel being a child of two of the most talented rappers in the world? Do you feel pressured to become a rapper against your will, or do you actually enjoy being born into the middle of this hip-hop world?”

        4 years ago
        • Exactly!! but we might have to save his interview for when he gets older xD – cause now they wont get anything out of him besides mom and dad ROCK! or rap..whichever goes xD hahahaha.

  56. Although I’m new to Tiger Jk, Tasha, and DJ Bizzy, I’m a fan of this song. It’s got such a nice feel to it.
    So um, my question…

    For all of them: I really liked the sound and feel of Sweet Dream. Have you already made plans for you next single, and will you change your concept? What may your concept be?

    (Edit- I’m Kiara from the US ^_^)

    4 years ago
  57. MFBTY were interviewed at the MIDEM conference in Cannes and Soompi put up the interview. You can watch to get some idea of what kinds of questions they have been asked already. The interview is in English. What happened to Bizzy’s kiwi accent?


    They mention that they actually have a full album in the waiting. This current album with Sweet Dream and BizzyTigerYoonMirae was more like a happy accident.

    4 years ago
    • Bizzy hardly spoke at all….we need to get more questions for him!! And Tasha!! Because Tiger JK will butt in anyway hahahaha. So we already know who they think are the best rappers in kpop, thus there is no need to ask that.

      They seem to like talking about their past – dig a little more there? Personal stories perhaps? Touching stories that stimulated a song, or funny stories about their transition to Korea?

      Maybe Bizzy can be asked about the hip-hop scene in NZ. Hip-hop is rare in Australia, so I’m assuming it’s the same in NZ.

      4 years ago
      • IDK anything bout them at all but apparently JK has some disease or somethin? Idk I just read a headline of an article on AKP the other day that mentioned it. If you wanna get personal you could ask somethin to do w/ that, or about their kid… (And either of those could have been in the other interviews, idk, just throwin crap out there.)

        4 years ago
        • Yea he has transverse myelitis. And good point, they love talking about their kid. I don’t know what to ask though…. how would you word it?

    Here are my questions:

    1. To Yoon Mi Rae/Tasha: You inspire me so much! :’) I never liked raps before until I saw you in Running Man. And I have been trying to rap ever since. ._. Can you give some advice, for young girls like me, on how to rap korean/english like you? Thank you!

    2. To MFBTY: What are your most essential accessories before going out of the house or going on stage?

    3. To MFBTY: What makes you confident? (because I think that to be a rapper/hip-hop artiste, you need to be/look really confident. >.

  82. So my question would be..As Tiger JK and Tasha (I don’t know much about Bizzy) have
    been in the music industry for a number of years both in the USA and Korea I was
    curious about:

    How has Korea the country /Korean music industry changed a lot since
    when they first debut, in terms of accepting Hip Hop/Rap (non K-pop usage of rap) or has the strict
    censorship laws actually restricted/hindered their ability to spread their
    music and how much has social media helped in promoting themselves.

    Thank you for creating MFBTY (My Fans Better Than Yours) for MFBTY.

    My questions,
    TigerJk: Who do you think is your inspiration is creating music, besides Tasha and Jordan? Are there any special moments, that makes you feel your popularity in Korea or overseas.

    Tasha: What do you think about JK having too much online spazzing? When are you really going to start further developing in America?

    Bizzy: Will there be any solo activities for you in the future?

    MFBTY: Are there more other group activities planning ahead?

          Yes, these guys are MASSIVE. They pioneered the hip-hop movement in Korea, as part of The Movement Crew, which also includes Kim Jin Pyo, Epik High, Dynamic Duo, etc.

  86. WHOO! Jungle Ent. is one of my fav. companies! Here are my questions:
    1. How do you feel about debuting in the US?
    2. Do you feel that Gangnam Style has made it harder for the mainstream public (not K-Poppers, but other people) to take K-Pop and Korean Hip Hop serioiusly, and how so?
    3. How do you feel about Saesangs, and have you encountered your own, or seen any going about other K-Idols?
    4. What makes you unique from other big (or so it seems) hip hop companies, like SniperSound and YG?
    5. What are your future plans? World Tours? English Debuts? etc
    6. Who do you want to collaborate with most? From another company in Korea or another country?
    7. What do you think about idols and idol groups?

    To Tasha:
    1. How does being of mixed race affect you in Korea on a daily basis?
    2. Did it make it hard for you to become a rapper, or have any influence on what company you auditioned/went for?
    3. How do you and Tiger JK balance working with each other and family life?
    4. What do you think about this generation of female “rappers”(idol rappers) and the women that actually DO hip hop in Korea? (Yourself, Gilme, E.Via…etc)
    I think all of you are awesome, you’re really great. Tasha, you are one of my favorite female rappers in Korea (top 3) I love all you guys, once again, you are amazingly fantastic.

  87. Q: Do you think there is an over saturation of idol pop in the Korean music industry as far as exposure goes (ie: TV & radio)?

    Q: If so, do you think the attitude of the public towered idol pop is changing, in other words are are people primed/eager for seeing and hearing more variety on radio/tv/music-you-hear-while-shopping and mainstream interviews? or is that something that already exists and us international fans (in general) aren’t really so aware of it?

    There was a tweet from west coast rapper Dumbfoundead concerning music artists confronting the darker side of the Korean Entertainment Industry (the trainee rape case by Open World Entertainments CEO comes to mind & the suicides by celebrities), which Tiger responded to by saying ‘artists are confronting those issues, but it doesn’t get much air time/exposure’.

    Q Do you believe there’s a certain amount of apathy involved dealing with these issues (both in the industry and the fan base)? What can fans do to help the change, if anything at all? or should fans even be getting involved?

    Q: Do you believe that if more artists (or industry insiders) came forward to tackle this problem, whether behind the scenes or in front, would it have much impact on other artists/trainee’s thinking the ‘status-quo’ doesn’t have to be set it stone? in other words would it inspire other artists/trainee’s to believe they deserve better then what they’re dealt, and act on working for better?

    Q: Being of mixed heritage, how has that affected the way you see things in the States, in Korea, and in an entertainment industry? Has this view changed from when you were a child to now that you have a child of your own?

    Q: Most people would agree that you’re probably one of the best rappers in the industry, what advice can you give to females who aspire to be emcees? What kind of hardships can they expect vs a male rapper and do you think these issues are going to be different for a female rapper in Korea and a female rapper in the US?

    Here’s my questions: I know at least Tiger JK and Yoon Mirae lived in the States for sometime, did your time there influence your music style and if it did in what way. Also if there is anything you would want to see come to the Korean rap scene that you see and miss in the American rap scene ???

  95. I’m curious to know how close the original Movement family is these days and if they still have the flexibility to support each other the way they did before. Leessang and Epik High especially have experienced a transition into more mainstream success. How has this affected the dynamics of the Movement’s friendship and does MFBTY think that a some kind of stage reunion might be possible in the future?

    Also, one of the reasons that Tiger’s music is so appealing is that it is so personal. Listening to “Feel gHood Muzik” for example is a journey of both pleasure and pain. “Sweet Dream” is just as potent. You don’t walk away from it unaffected. How does MFBTY keep their inspiration fresh and relevant? Is it harder as they grow older? What sources do they draw from?

    Good luck Simon and Martina! I can’t wait for this one :D I’ve been a huge fan of JK and Tasha for ages and am so happy to see them back with a new project!

    1) For Tasha, as she is known to be one of the most recognized female Korean rappers – the presence of female rappers is increasing in the Korean mainstream music scene but is still lacking compared to the prevalence of male rappers. Since rappers often exude “tough and confident” images, how do you think the general public views female rappers in relation to the more traditional Korean outlook of women? What would you like to see in the future for female rappers in the Korean music industry?
    2) For Bizzy – How was it working with a married rap-couple? Do you think that this relationship between the two allowed the group to communicate better, or did it in fact do the opposite? I find this work-relationship interesting since Simon and Martina are also in a similar boat.
    3) For Tiger JK and T – How did you two meet? Did you immediately take a liking to each other or did it take some time?
    4) Also for Tiger JK and T – Jordan is adorable and I’m glad to see him growing up so well! I know it’s early, but as his parents are pretty much rap-legends, do you think that he will also pursue the same or similar career? Would you like him to or because you know the hardships of being a musician, would prefer he not (although ultimately it is his decision)?

    (Simon and Martina- you’re free to re-word any of my questions if you use any of them)!

  101. Simon and Martina: I think this will be an awesome (MFBTY) interview _because_ it is with you. From other commenters they seem well-known for being candid and upfront and that is something that a lot of people have come to respect you two for the same qualities (among many others). I think that you should try to have a little fun with it because I don’t expect your standard rehearsed speech answers here. Frankly, even though “Sweet Dream” didn’t quite make the top 3 this week, I think that you were deliberately chosen for this interview because a) you have a much more international exposure than Korean tv, b) you don’t have the same cultural prejudices that these artists seem to clash with and c) you’re awesome, funny, and pretty darned honest. When you endorse a group, it means a lot more than just a pre-scripted entertainment interview. Roll with it, you’ve got this.

    Question for MFBTY: With more international exposure lately, what are your plans in moving forward? Who do you see as your target audience?

    Where do you go to watch new acts? Are you currently mentoring new young artist?

  109. so excited about this interview…love that y’all will soon be sharing the same air.

    sorry if this rambles a bit..

    i found out about kpop after seeing Rain in a commercial about 3 years ago…did some digging and voila! here i am. i love a lot of kpop music. however, the concept of almost every group having a rapper is weird/interesting to me. plus, many of the concepts, esp the visual, seem to be inspired by 90s American rap.
    1. Do Tiger JK/Tasha/Bizzy know what the reason for this is? Who is styling the kpop rappers this way?

    Several of the kpop idols/rappers have confessed a love for American hip hop/rap music/artists. i love how music can transcend borders and speak to us even when we don’t understand the language. but it’s clear there’s a lot lost in translation. There’s a few kpop idols/rappers that my heart adores because they seem to be making a sincere effort to not just imitate/emulate/simulate(?) what they think it means to be cool in the genre but are really trying to understand the artists/people behind it and use it as inspiration to tap into their own soul.
    2. Since Tiger JK and Tasha have an understanding of both sides, do they ever mentor any kpop idols/rappers? if not, would they please consider it?

    i hope you can understand the gist of my point and can ‘pretty’ it up for the interview (hopefully). :)

I heard that they run their own entertainment (tasha and Tiger), how did this happen, why did they choose to do it this way, what are the benefits and what are the hindrance/disadvantage of doing so? I don’t know much about either Tiger, Tasha or Bizzy. Even though they are really well known in Korea, they are not that known internationally so if they could introduce themselves in different languages (especially in Norwegian :D ) that would be awsome, and I think the international fans (including me) would like that :)

    Q: Often, Hip Hop/Rap artists use the phrase “HH/R belongs to everyone”, and blatantly ignore and/or mock the history of the actual genre and the struggle it has had to actually become one of the most popular styles of music. TJK is often viewed as the Jay-Z of Hip-hop in SK, and Tasha gives off a strong Lauryn Hill vibe to many listeners, but what do you see as your role in the history of HH/R music? And can you compare yourself to other big names in the industry?


    Q: Who were your influences, and who still influences you as an artist, and in the culture of Hip Hop/ Rap music? And what do you see/want as the future for Hip Hop/ Rap music in Korea?

  113. My question is for Tasha. I’m black and from America, and because of my mom, some people never suspect that I am Black, also because of the way I act. I really want to get into the Entertainment industry, beginning in South Korea. I’m aiming up there in wanting to join the top three industries, but I think YG will be the most accepting of someone like myself.

    And won’t ya’ll release physical copies of MFBTY’s albums? Is this a going to be so for your future album releases? (I hope not because I’m old skool)

    3. And BIZZY please release your album soon! During Music Matters in Singapore last year, you said you would preview your new song ‘Angel’ but after that small preview there was no news. What happened?

    3rd question: Is anyone from MFBTY planning on releasing a solo album right now, in korea or abroad, or would you like to work as a group again?

Lol I even imagined having you guys putting on a GD gangsta act to try and fit in (cos….it’s the thought that counts right? xD) but that might be viewed as disrespectful by their fans OH WAIT but since their fans are better than yours, they must be AMAZING and have a great sense of humour right?

Since i saw them on the indie playlist i have been on a mad internet search TABS EVERYWHERE to find the music from each of them as its a project group (i know Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae are married and are rap royalty) so the past few days i have been thoroughly enjoying their music as i don’t come across much Hip Hop and Rap from Korea. I did catch an interview Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae did on youtube and they were really great interviewees with great humour so i am excited for you guys.
    Questions wise its not really my place to ask anything as i am relatively new to their music as a whole so i am just going to leave that to the fans who have followed their music for a little longer as i am sure their questions are going to be really engaging, but i am so excited about this interview and i look forward to it :D

I’ve always wondered how the both of them feel about Tasha being so damn talented, umm, even more than Tiger JK in some aspects… definitely more popular and more sought after, anyway. I’m amazed how supportive Tiger has become, especially when he said that thing from the billboard interview –

          So what’s ahead in 2013 for MFBTY after starting with such a bang?

  120. what are some of the obstacles you come across when working on music (either the coming up with the concept, lyric writing, the mv filming, etc)? How do you overcome those obstacles?

    Do you think the growing popularity of K-pop is helping underground rappers and mainstream rappers get a bigger audience, or do you think it is making it difficult for them to break free from the label of “K-pop” since they do not create “pop” music ?

      • Does Tiger JK feel at all hypocritical after his white people rampage? You don’t want racial generalizations made upon yourself or you family… what makes it okay for you to do so? A few ignorant, probably drunk, jerk-offs shouldn’t speak for people as a whole. Racisim can go both ways.

        4 years ago
        • MG

          I doubt he meant to generalize on an entire race or people. I’m positive he was dead on his generalization of the people that were heckling him. As far as them being drunk that’s never an excuse to be ignorant. Sometime you have throw back the garbage that’s being spewed on to you, it might not always be the right thing to do. But when your are being hurt it’s sometimes instinctual to want to hurt back. You can’t really judge anyone till you have walked in their shoes. I doubt he is a perfect person. and on that day anger got the best of him.

        • His rampage stems not just from white people, but of American attitudes towards Asians that most likely stems from a very racially charged time period In America (it seems like when is there not a racially charged time period). He grew up in LA during the 1992 LA riots…and for those who do not know all the components of the LA riots, there was significant warring between African Americans and Asian Americans at that time and Koreatown was greatly affected by the riots. This most likely impacted Tiger JK in a manner to have a somewhat negative attitude about American’s perception of Asian-Americans…and rightly so as demonstrated by the ignorant drunk attendees. After years of suffering hate how does one not lose their cool?

          In fact, this warring still occurs today, my very good friend grew up in Oakland having to deal with African American and Asian American gang wars and the constant stereotypes that African Americans pushed on her. She told me, she was tired of the violence and belittling she witnessed/experienced everyday. She started to yell and even physically push back from the various verbal and physical taunts she endured. As she said “They believed I would just be another quiet asian who would just take the abuse quietly and not stand up for herself. I went out to prove that stereotype is wrong.” She still holds onto these grudges to this day (keeps her guard up when meeting new people and lets it down when she realizes the person is not racist), and understandably.

          I honestly have no idea how she endured that time period in her life and I feel the same for Tiger JK. I do not feel he is being a hypocrite by any means…just may have not gone about this incident in the most constructive manner but sometimes taking the issue head on in aggressive manner is the only way to get the point across. Honestly, all he used is words…isn’t that better than fists? How does one push back on blatant racism? Can anyone keep their cool in that situation?

        • As a white person (read as “glow in the dark”) having grown up in the middle of America, I’ll be honest that I hear a lot about racism but don’t really experience it for myself. That’s not because I’m great, but because I just happened to be born to the regional majority. Thankfully, I grew up in a neighborhood that was poor and filled with every flavor of humanity. Thankfully, I also had parents that never made an issue about race one way or the other – people are just people. As MLK Jr. dreamed about, we actually learned (as did the people around me) that is was the content of a person’s character that mattered. All the other stuff – skin color, facial features, country of origin, language, musical taste, fashion preference, religion, orientation – was window dressing. So, I think, for me, I got to grow up in a state of blissful ignorance to the racial strife in so many other parts of America and around the world. Yes, I knew about Rodney King and the L.A. riots, but it was so far away. I even knew about Detroit (in my home state), but it was WAY over on the east side and the world of my childhood was still huge. It wasn’t until I moved to Indiana that I learned there were real people (not just the ones in history books) that hated other people because of their skin. It wasn’t until I got a little older and a little wiser that I learned that it wasn’t only white people doing the hating. It never occurred to me that a black person would hate an Asian person or vice versa. It never occurred to me that a Native American would hate a Mexican…

          Honestly, I thought that we white people cornered the market on hate – not a good feeling when you grew up not realizing that skin color mattered to people.

          At this point in my life, I still don’t have the experiential capacity to understand what it was like for Tiger JK to grow up in L.A. at the same time when all this race madness was going on (does it still go on? that’s like another world to me). I think that’s one reason why when I read about his rant, I didn’t get ticked off. How can I judge a person based on a news article for something that I’ve never had to deal with? Have I mentioned that we were born on the same day (that didn’t help the initial crush either)? So a lot of what I remember hearing about on the news, he was actually living at the exact same age. It’s easy to imagine that I would have said more, and possibly worse.

          4 years ago
        • Yes…unfortunately racial tension still exists all over the world. I’m glad you and many people responded to Tiger JK’s rant not with anger or thinking he is hypocritical, but tried to understand why he expressed himself in that manner and realized what cultural ignorance he was so upset at.

          The time period my friend told me about was when she was in high school in the early 2000, and I am sure is still occuring today. I consider myself from a very progressive area, the SF Bay Area, which is very culturally diverse and rich. In fact, I grew up in community where white people were the minority, and I felt unaware as a child of cultural differences. However, as I grew older I realized despite the fact the bay area was culturally diverse…we still remained somewhat culturally segregated, and it was difficult to break through the misunderstandings of the different cultural groups. I only have anecdotal evidence, but I honestly feel we are sadly far from MLK Jr.’s dream.

          My first experience with racism is when I moved to the north bay into more biracial community: white and latinos. It was apparent a good portion of the community disliked latinos for one reason or another and their inability to speak english…the things I have heard overtime in school and workplace are to horrific to repeat here. Because of this apparent hatred a good portion of the latino community built a wall around themselves against white people. In middle school, I began to befriend someone from that community and learned her parents were illegal immigrants. Her parents were the nicest folks I have ever met and I felt so welcomed in their home as they introduced me to their culture. However, her friends disliked her hanging out with me and sent a letter saying “If you continue to hang out with that white girl, you will no longer be welcome in our group and we will make sure to cut you off from our community.” This was really heavy stuff for me to understand as a middle schooler, and I learned fast why they felt that way. Even if I personally was not racist, the majority of their interactions with “white” people were very negative and unwelcoming, thus in turn they had to have their defenses up. Once I realized my overtures to try to make peace with her friends were not welcomed and why they could not change their minds about me, I felt really torn my friendship with her was causing her to be ostracized from her community. There was no happy ending with whatever choice she made. This was just beginning of some of the racial tensions I personally experienced growing up.

          No mater what, we should still try to understand where someone is coming from, then we can better understand and accept one another. Tiger JK stands against racial discrimination, and I feel his comments still exemplify this stance, even if not said in the most eloquent manner. I actually hope this issue is not discussed during the interview with S&M, I hope they focus on the music since that is what MFBTY really is about…a project for these artists to evolve and express themselves to the world. I really love all their music previous to MFBTY, and feel they have broken so many boundaries in music and shared so many positive messages.

        • So, spurred on by this conversation, I’ve been reading back through the stuff on the internet about this incident. Thanks to Jo for reminding me that it wasn’t in Korea. I’m pretty sure this is all a dead issue as far as it goes with Tiger JK. Yeah, he went on a rant after losing his temper with some hecklers. Maybe if that was where it ended, there’d be something to talk about. The thing is, he apologized….on his own…without being prodded by management or whatever. And, quite frankly, it was in America. And let’s face it…one of the cool things about America is you can say dumb ass things with a lot less fear than you can other places in the world. Thank goodness – because I say some dumb ass things pretty regularly. So, in my mind…apology accepted…rant forgotten…keep makin’ great music and bringing it to America…even if we may accidentally send out some dumb asses in the greeting party.

        • Everything that yahnati said. JK was responding to the racist and orientalist comments of a specific group of white people. He was generalizing which is not necessarily a good thing but is not even close to comparable to what those white people were perpetuating.

          Also racism is discrimination + societal power. Groups in a position of no power in society (e.i. people of color) cannot be racist for the simple fact that they have no power in a white oriented system. Reverse racism does not exist. Rudeness and generalizing does exist but should never be called racism until it is accompanied by a system and society wide innate disadvantage for the victim.

          And I think it’s hilarious that you’re dismissing the centuries of orientalism resulting in what those white people wanted JK to do as simply “ignorant drunken behavior” but lampooning JK for his visceral and emotional response to being treated like a dancing monkey and calling it “hypocritical racism.” Stop. No. Sit down.

        • You’re “definition” of racism is completely false and sounds like a justification for being a racisist yourself. Racisim evolves from a person’s ignorance and has nothing to do with either their own race or the race they’re prejudice against. Come on, societal power? Are you implying that minorities have no power in society? And which society are we talking about? Where I grew up I was the minority, would it have made me (white) not racist for calling a black person n******? I think not.

        • One of the worst argument i have ever heard! Racism is simply any discrimination of people based on their cultural traits e.g skin colour and beliefs. It does not matter if the person belongs to a group in power or not, racism goes both ways, be careful!!!

        • This is not on the topic, but I am a person of color, and I think it’s really important to point out that this statement “Groups in a position of no power in society (i.e. people of color) cannot be racist for the simple fact that they have no power in a white oriented system.” leaves out the definition of “race prejudice”. Saying people of color can’t be racist by pulling out that definition of racist (which not everyone agrees on) but not acknowledging the definition of “race prejudice” isn’t playing fair. People of color can be very race prejudice. I love my grandma, but she has said some messed up stuff in her time. That guy who runs the shop around the corner, nice guy, but he can say some messed up stuff about other races sometimes. I think it’s really important that we, as people of color, not give ourselves and others a free pass to say jerky things by saying it can’t be racist. It CAN be, and is, race prejudice.

        • Preach, honey!! I think racism is racism, no matter who is perpetuating it; it’s ridiculous (to me, at least) to think that since us people of color (I’m black) don’t have substantial power means that we can’t be “racist”.

          4 years ago
        • My thought Exactly.. I too am a “Person of Color” and I DO NOT believe its alright to say messed up things about another person not of your own color because you’re not white, so its not racist. It is just as Racist!

        • From my experience, we all have a tendency toward xenophobia since people, in general, are afraid of what they don’t understand, and when people fear something they generally want it to go away (etc.). The question is whether or not we’re willing to stare our own prejudices down, call them what they are, and change our own perceptions.

        • I really hope that JK Tiger gets to have his say, so to speak. Of course, I wasn’t there. Everything I read pointed to the fact that some cretin acted like a cretin, and JK called him on it in a colorful way. Raven, your point about reverse racism is valid, although the argument could be made that a few white people in a crowd of Koreans in Korea have very little power and so racism wasn’t at play. It was morons being morons. Not coming in on one side or the other because I wasn’t there. Just saying.

        • The way I understood it (if I’m thinking of the same incident) is he was yelling at the specific people who were telling him to do the horse-dance, not at the entire crowd. He just happened to be using his mic, so everybody heard it, but the people in the back couldn’t *see* what was going on or *hear* the assholes being assholes, they could only hear Tiger JK’s response.

          4 years ago
      • I agree. Of course, living in America, we’re pretty used to being able to say whatever crazy crap we want to say. Korea is vastly different from this. I was actually following Tiger JK’s Twitter feed the other day when he was talking about having trouble getting MFBTY’s stuff onto shows (as well as needing a publicist in case anyone knows somebody). Maybe this is the trade-off. IMO (for whatever that’s worth), I think they have a very mature/authentic/rich sound as opposed to many of the IDOL groups where their music seems more of a marketing tool than an actual art.

  164. Since their fans are better than others (FACT) two questions:

    1. What’s the coolest thing a fan has ever done for them or, alternatively,

    2. What’s a not-so-cool thing that a fan has given to them?

    QUESTIONS: Well, since they are all so cool…what kind of things do they consider to be cool, and what is the coolest thing they’ve ever experienced?

    Because they have the better fans…what are their reflections on their own celebrity lives, how does it differ from other kpop-idols, in terms of the attention they get and their fans a.s.o…?

    And finally…are they nasty?

  178. A question for Tiger JK and Yoon Mirae, with your (ADORABLE!) son Jordan, as you both have strong American and Korean backgrounds, is his bringing up more of a Korean-style bringing up or a western-style bringing up? i.e. the language you speak around him, education etc.

  180. These days, it seems like the Korean underground hip hop scene isn’t as underground as before; many artists are collaborating with more mainstream acts and the world is becoming more exposed to Korean hip hop. What are your feelings on the current K-hip hop scene, its development over the years and its place in Korean pop culture. ^^ 새해복 많이 받으세요!

    (To Simon and Martina: feel free to reformulate the question, I didn’t manage to make it sound good)

    • Oooooh good question. Remember when Tiger JK flipped out after someone in the US asked him to dance Gangnam Style?

      4 years ago
      • It happened in Seoul, not the USA, but he was dealing with white hecklers….hence “american” association. Good article to read by seoulbeats on that whole issue: http://seoulbeats.com/2012/10/why-tiger-jk-isnt-racist-shouldnt-have-apologized-and-how-psy-factors-in/

        4 years ago
      • That was the time I thinking of..I think? Honestly, when I read about that I was thinking “Good for Tiger JK! What kinda [insert colorful name] asks an artist to do such a [insert colorful adjective] thing? [insert colorful mumbling after the fact].” It only takes one douchebag in the crowd to make the entirety of white people look like xenophobe morons.

        4 years ago
        • I think Tiger JK was totally justified in doing that, he just shouldn’t have called out all white people like that; almost every white person I know (because some just don’t care XD) is disgusted by any kind of racism and they’d be ready to tell off those hecklers as well.

          4 years ago
        • I don’t think he *did* call out ‘all white people.’ It was a couple of people in the front of the crowd being jerks, he called them on it with his mic, so *everybody* heard his response, but most of the crowd was too far away to hear or see what set him off.

          4 years ago
        • If he didn’t, then I apologize for not getting my facts straight; I read about the situation from an article (editorial?) on Seoulbeats (link below) that spoke about the situation.


          4 years ago
        • Yeah, I agree…maybe a little over the top. But I think about the times that someone has really and truly pissed me off (it doesn’t happen real often), and in response I’ve said some crazy crap that didn’t necessarily represent my true beliefs or feelings in a saner moment. Having never had someone treat me as crudely as I think he was treated, I think it’s a little unrealistic for me or anyone to say how he (or anyone) should act in that moment. I suspect that the “problem people” in the crowd probably had no idea how offensive they were being – another problem of not thinking before we speak.
