I just got into Underground K-rap , Do you know any good Rappers or songs ?
Welcome to the underground! Trust me, you’ll love it the deeper you dig into it ;D There are a bunch of recs related to K-rap here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. (There has GOT to be a more efficient way of doing that…)
Personally, these are the artists I consider quality rappers:
Zico of Block B, Beenzino, Verbal Jint, Zizo of Together Brothers, Huckleberry P, Outsider, Crucial Star, Dynamic Duo, JJK, Geeks, Epik High, Mad Clown
K-rap is an amazing genre and I hope these recs help in any way! ^^
Favorite songs of Verbal Jint & MFBTY? Their my favorites
Verbal Jint is awesomeeeee :3 Some of my favorites would be
Walking in the Rain (비범벅) (Feat. Bumkey) Downhill (내리막) (Feat. Tablo & Mithra Jin of Epik High) Good Morning (굿모닝) (Feat. Kwon Jeong Yeol of 10cm) Storm (Feat. Swings & Kanto) You Deserve Better (충분히 예뻐) (Feat. Sanchez of Phantom)
And if you listen to songs that he features in, his amazing rhyming tends to be emphasized more in comparison to other rappers.
I’m not too much of an MFBTY fan (though I respect them immensely). And I don’t think they have that many songs out (they only had one release). I do like “Sweet Dream” but it’s not something I’d call one of my favorite songs ><
would you mind making a zip file of all your fav k-indie songs?
Whoa that’s gonna be a challenge XD I ACCEPT IT.
Here’s a zip file to mine. I tried to be as selective as possible (yet I still ended up with 60 songs OTL I suppose that’s what happens when you’ve been searching for music almost every day for 2 years…). Hope you like them as much as I do! ^^
Disclaimer: This is not a full list. I couldn’t find mp3’s to some of them because I have nearly 10,000 song files in my entire computer and it’s just too much to find each and every song I like ._.
hi! thank you so much for posting all this music! it's really refreshing to hear new music other than the normal kpop sounds :3 do you happen to know of other sites similar to yours that posts music in other languages too? i'd like to expand my music library even more hehe, thanks so much for everything!!
Hey! A few blogs I can think of that post music in languages other than English are:
Everysongaday- K-indie, K-pop, Japanese, basically a little bit of everything
Would you happen to know artists similar to Jung Joon Young? ^^
Hi there ^^
I love Jung Joon Young.. As soon as I heard his music I immediately became a fan. Here’s a few songs/artists that are a bit similar to Jung Joon Young’s rock style:
JACE (제이스) - My Serenade [They’re a new rock group that just released new songs. Even though they’re new, anticipate their future songs since they seem to have a lot of potential] DICKPUNKS (딕펑스) [A more of a pop type of rock, highly suggest this band as they create really unique songs especially their Immortal Song 2 performances which is linked here as well] FT ISLAND (에프티 아일랜드) [The lead singer, Lee Hongki, has a very unique and explosive voice just like Joon Young. Though, this band is a bit more mainstream] Monni (몽니)
Do you like block b? Any zico solo songs recommendations?? :)
OMG DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTEDDDDD.
Zico is the one who got me into K-rap and now I’m absolutely hooked. I’ve dug so deep into it that I’ve forgotten how much Zico influenced my passion! I really just love anything he raps because his rhythm, voice, and flow are just exactly my style. Some songs that I love are
I’m Still Fly Get Em High (Feat. Uglyduck & Gganmo) Billionaire (억만장자) (Feat. 한해) Mosquito LOL (It’s not solo but his rap in this Block B song is eargasmic) Battle Royal 숨이차 Remix (Feat. Ugly Duck & Fana & Zion.T & Crucial Star & Zico & DJ Dopsh) (Again, not a solo song but he features and it’s just a perfect track in general) No Limit
There are a lot of songs that he features in as well (I’d like to think he’s pretty respected in the community :3) so I’d really recommend going on a listening spree on our Zico tag and Youtube ^^ He’s truly an artist who didn’t lose his identity with being an idol. Hope you like these songs~!!
