Every day for the next 28 days, we’ll highlight one of our fav Korean rappers on a countdown to #1.
Today, please consider visual icon (see what we did there?): Bobby.
While he’s not a rapper I’d push someone with a brand new interest in Korean hip hop toward first, for seasoned listeners of idol rappers, he’s a fun break from the usual with energetic tracks seasoned to taste and vocals that get you hyped.
- Style: He’s got a loud, passionate voice that takes on a gravelly quality when he really gets going yet sweet when he wants it to be. Pretty satisfying.
- Lyrics: Tbh, I’m not all that impressed by the things he has to say because they’ve been said a thousand times already but, as noted, I’m a big fan of how he says them.
- Production: A lot of his music is a bit overproduced which can sort of detract from that delicious growl in his voice, but… you win some, you lose some.
Check out a quick list of some of our faves from Bobby below!
