Supreme Team’s E-Sens Criticizes Comedians Doing Hip Hop

Supreme Team’s E-Sens Criticizes Comedians Doing Hip Hop


Supreme Team’s E-Sens has a bone to pick with the increasing number of comedians making attempts into the hip hop genre.

On November 27, the Supreme Team member tweeted, “Why is it that when [comedians] have no ideas or have nothing to do, they always try and imitate hip hop musicians with “music” that aren’t even funny? Truthfully speaking, I am f*cking tired of seeing this.” 

Though the tweet wasn’t directed at anyone in particular, with the rise of such cases through efforts from Jung Hyung Don, Brave Brothers, UV and more, the tweet was seen as an indirect diss at them.

His agency later commented in on the manner as well saying that the tweet was an expression of E-Sens’ personal opinion and did not reflect the opinion of the agency itself.

The tweet brought divided opinions from netizens with some agreeing saying things like, “It’s an embarrassment to true hip hop artists”, while others shared, “Then hip hop musicians shouldn’t come out on variety programs either.”

What’s your take on the matter?

It was a good start lol

I agree with E-sens.......

Especially since many think Hip Hop is a joke.....

Its why I detest UV and their wigs.

"Then hip hop musicians shouldn't come out on variety programs either."
I don't even follow Supreme Team or the K-hip hop scene but UGH BULLSHIT, I hate arguments like that.

Hmm I actually kind of agree with him. Maybe I just don't find gagmen as funny as Korea does, or E Sens for that matter. I liked his explanation behind the tweet as well, and that he didn't issue a lame (unnecessary) apology http://www.allkpop.com/2012/11/e-sens-gives-explanation-behind-tweet-about-comedians

And wasn't that tweet by another rapper?
uledy 28th-Nov-2012 05:59 pm (UTC)
Yea, I also liked his explanation and the fact that he didn't back down. I have respect for folks to stand by their convictions.

E-Sens just wins. I absolutely agree with him.

Loling at the article listing Brave Brothers as an example of comedians trying to do hip hop. UV's Itaewon Freedom is flawless though.
seung_is_my_ho 28th-Nov-2012 04:01 pm (UTC)
lol that was pretty funny. but the mom was way cooler than them, so...
baeby_bloo_skys 28th-Nov-2012 09:59 am (UTC)
I believe that was just a mistranslation of the comedian group Brave Guys; unless you meant it's funny that Brave Guys are considered hip hop, in which case, carry on!
virgo288 28th-Nov-2012 06:21 pm (UTC)
ahah I figured it was a mistake/typo of some kind, but it's still hilarious to me cuz Omona has such a bone to pick with Brave Brothers :P

Seriously? Creative self-expression, dude. No need to paint hiphop into some esoteric brotherhood of cool cats with street cred. Don't like it, don't buy it. Maybe there wouldn't so much comedy to churn out of the genre unless it's makers didn't take themselves so damn seriously.

i love khiphop and ia.
valieleen 28th-Nov-2012 02:47 pm (UTC)
I agree, tbh. I get why he's annoyed, but it's really not such a big deal.

I love The Lonely Island and Flight of the Conchords.

Says it all, really.
gacchiri 28th-Nov-2012 10:30 am (UTC)
UV and Jung Hyun Don make me cringe tbh.
nobodyelse_care 28th-Nov-2012 10:51 am (UTC)
But I like UV and Brave Brothers... :(
arsinoi 28th-Nov-2012 10:54 am (UTC)
Tbh I kind of agree with him because when every comedian (not only in Korea) wants to do a song it will most always be hip hop. It's like people think its an easy genre to sing to and make songs for. It's so overused that it becomes ridiculous. I remember growing up listening to a popular comical hip hop group in my country and thinking all hip hop was about being silly and not serious.
uglypricetag 28th-Nov-2012 11:57 am (UTC)
hip hop is not something sacred that's off limits to comedians but i understand where he's coming from. it's kinda how i dislike rock music being painted into a caricature of leather jackets, long hair and screeching vocals.

UV isn't a parody of hip hop acts tho. they're making fun of cheesy 90's pop. it just so happens that their songs feature rap.
atelierlune 28th-Nov-2012 12:30 pm (UTC)
I feel like I have been seeing that more often... but at the same time I think the MC doth protesteth too much.
strawberry_efeu 28th-Nov-2012 12:43 pm (UTC)
He actually retweeted what someone else said and added on: “Truthfully speaking, I hate seeing things like this.”

Since when is allkpop the more accurate translation? :O Anyway, this translation made it seem like a rant but really he was more like, "oh yeah, that really bugs me." Which, seriously, is not that big of a deal. Aren't there types of comedy that bug the hell out of you too?
somacomatose 28th-Nov-2012 12:46 pm (UTC)
i get what he's saying. that running man episode with the hip hop special is one of my favorites though, yjs shouting SWAG at everything was hilarious.
jasmineakaiumi 28th-Nov-2012 02:44 pm (UTC)
That episode was too funny
k0dama 28th-Nov-2012 01:24 pm (UTC)
Well they can't call it rap anymore, because it turns out rap is not about talking really fast.
4minutesluts 29th-Nov-2012 07:42 am (UTC)
i don't think that this is a lesson korea is ever going to learn
k0dama 29th-Nov-2012 03:13 pm (UTC)
True.. "rappers" in korean groups are nothing more than like a drummer for a rock band. Orz

"they always try and imitate hip hop musicians with “music” "

Yeah that goes for the so called "serious" artists aswell.

“Then hip hop musicians shouldn’t come out on variety programs either.”

Netizen logic.

lainmyownworld 28th-Nov-2012 05:55 pm (UTC)
but i love andy samberg

but if what he does it considered hip hop/rap xD
lainmyownworld 28th-Nov-2012 05:56 pm (UTC)
whoop. didn't mean for this to be a reply xD
pon_pon_pink 28th-Nov-2012 09:50 pm (UTC)
i agree with him because a lot of comedians take it too far and stereotype black hip hop artists and it's just ridiculous and kind of disrespecting. if they do it for fun ok, but shit like blackface doesn't need to be done.
sakuracookie 29th-Nov-2012 01:47 am (UTC)
If the song gets me moving, I really don't care what the artist does for their day job. /shrug

Sorry about your hurt feelings, E-Sens. Loved your Primary collabo,
beanii 29th-Nov-2012 03:11 am (UTC)
I hope people know that hip hop isn't just limited to rap...

I agree with one of the previous statements above, hip hop shouldn't be closed off like it's a high and mighty genre. Originally it was means of just saying whatever you wanted to say and having fun among groups.
I do agree with him on the idea of posing as certain images, stereotyping hip hop artists as people with gangsta status.
snowmog 29th-Nov-2012 11:08 am (UTC)
I get what he's saying but I've never really considered them to be hip-hop or rap artists anyway. It's not what their whole careers are going to be and they are comedy groups, even if the way some of them choose to present it is a little bit questionable (UV's wigs for example).

That being said, Brave Guys were motherflipping awesome at the Busan fireworks festival concert this year.
