KOREAN HIP HOP RESOURCE
"15 Korean rappers you should know that aren’t PSY" by XXL
- Tiger JK of Drunken Tiger
When Tiger JK released his solo debut, Enter the Tiger, in 1995, the public quickly dismissed him and his music. Four years later in 1999, with a partner in rhyme (DJ Shine), JK returned with a vengeance as a member of the now celebrated Drunken Tiger imprint, unveiled Year of the Tiger, and openly raised the question to the Korean music market via the single, “Do You Know Hip-Hop?” Now, nearly 20 years, eight albums, and multiple hits after his initial efforts, Tiger JK and Drunken Tiger’s impact reign supreme in the Land of the Morning Calm. Not only has JK pushed the boundary of the art and played an essential role in elevating the culture, but he also did it without forsaking its authenticity. Recognized internationally as a star, Drunken Tiger remains as the face of Korean hip-hop and few—if any—can dispute that claim.
