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?

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?

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.

Loling at the article listing Brave Brothers as an example of comedians trying to do hip hop. UV's Itaewon Freedom is flawless though.

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.

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... :(

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.

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.

I feel like I have been seeing that more often... but at the same time I think the MC doth protesteth too much.

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?

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.

That episode was too funny

Well they can't call it rap anymore, because it turns out rap is not about talking really fast.
