MFBTY helps spread Korean Hip Hop awareness to the world through MIDEM

MFBTY took over Cannes, France during their MIDEM stage.

Tiger JK, Yoon Mi Rae, and Bizzy stood on stage at MIDEM for ‘K-POP Night Out at MIDEM 2013‘. The trio announced to the world what K-hip hop sounded like, leaving a strong impression on everyone in the audience.

The ‘Korean Jay-Z and Beyonce’ sang a parade of their hit songs including, “In the Heart of a Genuinely Pushing Heart“, “Thumb“, “Pay Day“, “The Scent of Life“, and “Get It In“. They also sang MFBTY’s “Sweet Dream” live for the very first time. The biggest climax of the night was when Tiger JK sang “Monster“, and fans jumped up and down as they cheered him on.

Tiger JK said, “It meant a lot to us because we were able to help spread K-hip hop awareness at a place where the giants of music in the world were all gathered. We were invited to MIDEM after our success at the ‘Music Matters Showcase‘ last May, and we’re looking forward to see what kind of opportunities will come our way after this performance.

Jungle Entertainment said, “MFBTY can be called the representatives of K-hip hop. Many in the music industry both in and out of Korea are paying attention to MFBTY because of their appearance at both Music Matters and MIDEM. We were able to confirm the feasibility of K-hip hop spreading to the world through this performance.

The more I see Tiger JK like that in the vid the more I am convinced he's being the Korean Jesus with that band.

Bizzy can have it anyway he wants, just saying.
But that aside, I've had Sweet Dream in heavy rotation since it's release.

‘Korean Jay-Z and Beyonce’

Can we not, though.

Anyway, Sweet Dream is a fucking jam and I wish I could have gone so badly. ;-;;;;

Why are they even called that? Beyonce is not a rapper and T isnt a singer >.>

If by "T" you mean Tasha, then you're wrong. Tasha is a singer as well as a rapper.
bolingi_aii 31st-Jan-2013 02:15 am (UTC)
? she's known for her rapping tho, not her singing.
ultraflyy23 31st-Jan-2013 04:25 am (UTC)
K but you didn't say "T's more known for her rapping" you said "T isnt a singer" which I corrected because that's wrong. and for the record, one of her most well known songs is a ballad so idgi.
bolingi_aii 31st-Jan-2013 04:38 am (UTC)
The reason I find the comparison to her and Beyonce to be stupid is because T isnt known for singing, she is primarily a rapper. Beyonce could do a rap on a song but that wouldnt make her a rapper too. Unless T always mixes it up on her album then I stand corrected. I didn't even know that she sang, expect for a hook or two. I've always known and seen her rapping so thats why I said that.
ultraflyy23 31st-Jan-2013 09:02 am (UTC)
ok, so you didn't know and that's why I told you. everybody's happy now.

The space it took them to say that, they could have just wrote a line about Jk and T being accomplished artists in their own right. I just see the comparison as unnecessary.

no i agree with you i was judging the writer for being a lil twat for making comparisons especially when the artists are in COMPLETELY different settings/area/level what ever you want to call it
yeah i agree making comparisons is only going to lead to drama by fans
earthequality 30th-Jan-2013 10:22 pm (UTC)
I've seen so many Western writers do this and I'm just like, stop and think for a minute. Besides comparing the sound of Beyonce and Jay-Z to other artists in the beginning and growth of their career, when has anyone called them "the so and so" and I'm just like no, you're insulting an individual artist's hard work by projecting another's identity on them. Frustrating.
oceandezignz 29th-Jan-2013 06:04 am (UTC)
Okay in that gif, Yoon Mi Rae is rockin' an ahoge and I'm loving it. I don't know why. But I am.
choconoir 29th-Jan-2013 06:08 am (UTC)
what i'd give to see them live. forever pressed i didn't go to the jungle concert in LA a couple years back.
b1gay4 29th-Jan-2013 07:44 am (UTC)
love it
