Tiger JK reveals Junhyung and Rap Monster changed his view of idol rappers
During a recent interview with hip-hop project group MFBTY, the group shared in-depth information about their upcoming album ‘Wondaland,’ as well as their thoughts on working with idol rappers such as Rap Monster and B2ST’s Junhyung.
Tiger JK started the conversation by revealing that he held a prejudice against idol rappers, but working with Junhyung and Rap Monster changed his view. He said, “I had my prejudice against B2ST’s Junhyung. A lot of people are expecting this album to be pure hip-hop but it’s actually an album of us reinterpreting K-Pop… so there were a lot of questions about us collaborating with idols [for the album].
We wanted to have fun collaborating with someone we really shouldn’t be working with. So we went and found someone who could compose music and perform as well. [When we asked him] Junhyung thought deeply about it for close to 20 days.
The prejudice that we had against him broke as I watched him work. It was fun making a track that not many people would have high expectations for. There were a lot of people who featured [in the album], but Junhyung helped out the most. The track 'Let It Go’ wasn’t like this in the beginning, but Junhyung was very sensible when it comes to music.”
Tiger JK also complimented Rap Monster for his unique input in the collaboration track and even revealed that they learned from the idol rapper through his work and music style.
Meanwhile, MFBTY’s upcoming album, 'Wondaland,’ will consist of 16 songs featuring talented artists such as Dok2, Rap Monster, Junhyung, and even Yoo Hee Yeol. The album is set to drop on March 19
