Favourite Featured KPOP “Raps”

The format of a KPOP song has become pretty predictable and standardized throughout the years. There are the verses, chorus, and maybe a catchy dance break if it is an upbeat song. Let’s not forget the random inserted rap in almost every KPOP song. No matter the genre of music, there is guaranteed to be one of the members rapping either near the beginning or end of the song.

Since this has become such a commonality, I have decided to list some of my favourite raps in KPOP songs. The word “some” is underlined for emphasis to imply that this is not my compete list of favourites. This list is also not arranged in any particular order. Also, this list does not contain groups like “Big Bang”, “Bangtan Boys”, “Monsta X”, “B.A.P”, “2NE1” or any groups of the sort whose music contains mostly rapping. Read the rest of this entry

The Clichés of K-POP Music

There are tons of KPOP groups and artists debuting every year, but there are only so many concepts that can be used in such a saturated industry.

Unpretty Rapstar Season 2 Favourites

Unpretty Rapstar Season 2 is currently airing and is already on their fifth episode. It has only a few weeks into the season and a lot has happened. A few people have been eliminated, while others were randomly added to the show. One person even left because of health issues. The lineup is constantly changing.

It should be no surprise that I am avidly following this show. Dramas and all other variety shows have taken a backseat as I devote the little spare time I have to watching this show. Throughout these few weeks, I have begun to favour a few of the competitors. I have also gotten to dislike a few as well, but for this post we will be focusing on my favourites. I have done a similar post for Show Me the Money 4 contestants, which you can see here.

Below is a list of some of my favourite rappers of this season, so far. This will probably change as the series progresses. Read the rest of this entry
