CB Mass

CB Mass is probably my all-time favorite Korean rap group. The members of this group are Gaeko, Choiza, and Curbin. After the release of their third album, Massappeal, Curbin ran away with the group's money. This left Gaeko and Choiza to form their own group, Dynamic Duo. Personally, I feel like the group was much better with Curbin even though he did do something wrong. CB Mass had the perfect trio -- Gaeko had a kinda high pitched voice, Choiza had a mix between high and deep, and Curbin had that mysterious husky voice. Basically, there was a balance of highs, mids, and low. However, in Dynamic Duo, you are missing that low voice. I'll let you be the judge though haha.

Common - S.T.O.R.Y. (Stories Told Over Remixed Years)

So rap star, Common, has been disappointing me lately with his newest album release, Universal Mind Control. It strays away from what his previous albums had -- soul. However, I happened to come across a mixtape by Beatnick and K Salaam. These two producers have happened to make a serious mark in the remix game lately so I figured they'd be good... and they sure are. The mixtape includes remixes of Common's arguably best tracks that he's ever put out. Although the remixes add a little more "funk" to them, it's definitely something fresh and enjoyable. I honestly have to say that this is a must haha.

Drunken Tiger - Foundation

Sup guys. This is yet again, another korean hip hop post. I don't know what I find so appealing about korean hip hop, but it's very reminiscent of the vintage hip hop that's been plagued by mainstream music. Anyways, onto the actual group -- Drunken Tiger. This group is highly regarded as the hip hop pioneers of korean hip hop. The group consists of the two members, Tiger JK and DJ Shine. While this is the group's final album before DJ Shine's departure for unknown reasons, this is arguably their best album. Not to mention that Tiger JK is to continue the legacy of the "Drunken Tiger" name as he is to release 3 albums after.

*I decided to give the entire album instead of just one song due to some requests. Tracklist is in the comments. Enjoy*
