You don’t have to be a fan of K-Pop (Korean Pop) to recognize the Korean hip-hop game blowing up in past years. From old school Drunken Tiger to televised rap competition Show Me The Money, South Korea has come a long way towards embracing hip-hop and the rest of the world is just starting to get a better picture.
Here’s a video from Cycadelic Records newcomer Los aka Los Moonwalker “All the way gone”. Hailing from Southern California, Los is a true Angeleno bringing together his LA roots and Korean heritage to create banging bilingual tracks in California, Korea, and beyond.
In journalistic integrity, I want to share that Los is my blood brother and, whether or not we are related, I only post what I consider quality music.
As a 1st generation Korean-American, I’m proud of my community creating engaging and evocative hip-hop that addresses different facets of the music industry, immigrant life, and representation.
I encourage you all to share your thoughts on this and other topics. Thanks for reading!
