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.”
