    This is more embarassing than JYJ in “Ayy Girl”….

    • Medusaspeaks

      Now, don’t be like that.  LOL.  I loved “Ayy Girl.”  It gets panned all the time, but JYJ does a great job live w/that song.  The video however, should be buried for all eternity.

         Lol, I sing the song all time mainly because Simon and Martina has ingrained the rolling down my sexy window dance in my head.

    • animasaurus

      “body2body” makes “Ayy Girl” sound like a masterpiece lmaooo.

    • cathy su

      comparing ayy girl to jay’s songs.. really? the immaturity of you kpop fans is overwhelming. you’re not any better than jay himself.

      • http://twitter.com/fah2ma Fatouma

         -________-  Don’t take it the wrong way, my comment was posted, 2 weeks ago, as a joke. I loathed the starting rap at the beginning of Ayy Girl, but Jay’s raps, like animasaurus said, makes the raps in Ayy Girl look like a masterpiece.

      Ayyy girl live isreally so good. 

  • Winter_Rose

    its not even the inappropriate content that bothers me the most, what bothers me more is how elementary his lyrics are. the content has been extremely worn out and there’s no lyrical complexity. he’s trying too hard to seem tough when he isn’t at all. he’s a freaking kpop idol. its funny how he’s trying to be “tough” by putting sexist and other dumb things in his lyrics rather than rapping about stuff that has actual meaning. also the comments on some of the songs are so ridiculous. i’m seriously sick of the “this is so much better than american music!!!1!11!!!!” comments. especially in this situation where what he’s rapping about is EXACTLY the same as some of american rap. and this mixtape just proves the point as to why he won’t make it in america. he would be written off as a wannabe in seconds.

        I could not agree more with this statement. While I was reading the lyrics I couldn’t help but think of the rapper wannabes at my high school who write equal if not better and thoughtful lyrics than Jay Park. In the words of David So, in order to become a rapper these days, “All you need is a beat.”

    Jay needs to leave the rap game alone. Period.  I agree with Winter Rose regarding his elementary school lyrics and wanna be tough guy posturing.  The whole effort made me laugh. He needs to stick to k pop. The misogyny and violence that you hear in some rap music (not all) is indicative of the culture of violence that is the USof A and not limited to just rap music. I just want to be clear about that, as someone who has been listening to rap as long as it has been in existence.
      
    I like Jay and think he’s a talented kid, but rap is not his forte.   I live for the “This so much better than American…”  comments as if Jay isn’t American, but that’s another topic.

    • xnopex

      agreed. every time rap comes up people want to whine about misogyny and homophobia and pin it on one type of people but like, willfully ignore and forgive problematic shit like taylor swift’s misogynistic and homophobic lyrics (using ‘gay’ in the pejorative sense), lady gaga and katy perry’s anti-trans* flubs and appropriation of “gay” culture for profit and a host of other problematic shit that is actually endemic to american culture as a whole. 

  • animasaurus

    Jay Park is an absolute sweetheart and I love that he just kind of does what he wants but everything about his musical career has been so mehhh… this is an all time low for him imho. What are those lyrics even? He is so talented, I hope he actually creates songs that allow for people to take him seriously, because he’s reeeeaaaallllly not doing himself justice with crap like this.

  • Khaddie

    The sexual nature of the lyrics could have been excused if they were clever and weren’t so obvious. I’ve heard far more explicit stuff in the music I normally listen to, but at least then my reaction tends to be “Oh, I see what you did there. Clever”. It’s not a good sign if I can guess what you plan on rhyming it with before you’ve finished the line.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but if you tried lines like that on me I would just laugh, and not in a good way. I’d just prefer it if there was some form of cleverness? People laugh at the corniness of pick up lines, but when one is origional, you have to give it credit. That’s what I wish the songs were like. “I’ve heard it all before, but I’m willing to listen to this one” sort of thing.

    I was talking to my sister, and she gave me a good example. In “The Motto” by Drake, Lil Wayne’s line is “Almost drowned in the p***y, so I swam to the butt.” Now that is explicit-ish and some may say it’s vulgar, but it makes you chuckle. And maybe I shouldn’t be comparing Jay Park to western musicians but that is the appeal Jay seems to be going for, and the songs are in English, so it seems fair to be comparing him to western artists.

    So if the songs are meant to be taken seriously, refine the songs and drop the over the top tough gangster vibe that Jay seems to be going for. On the other hand, if they are meant to be over the top Slim Shady, explicit and offensive, make them funnier, more clever so that people can’t help but chuckle and say “I can’t believe he just said that.”

    The songs have good beats, he is a decent singer and like said before, he does have a decent flow. But he just seems stuck between being a sweet idol and a hardcore rapper. If you are going to do both, do both well. Eminem does serious, thought provoking records, and he does silly over the top offensive ones. It can be done, Jay just needs to grow a bit to accommodate both.

    The songs have good beats, he is a decent singer and like said before, he does have a decent flow. But he just seems stuck between being a sweet idol and a hardcore rapper. If you are going to do both, do both well. Eminem does serious, thought provoking records, and he does silly over the top offensive ones. It can be done, Jay just needs to grow a bit to accommodate both.

    The sexual nature of the lyrics could have been excused if they were clever and weren’t so obvious. I’ve heard far more explicit stuff in the music I normally listen to, but at least then my reaction tends to be “Oh, I see what you did there. Clever”. It’s not a good sign if I can guess what you plan on rhyming it with before you’ve finished the line.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but if you tried lines like that on me I would just laugh, and not in a good way. I’d just prefer it if there was some form of cleverness? People laugh at the corniness of pick up lines, but when one is origional, you have to give it credit. That’s what I wish the songs were like. “I’ve heard it all before, but I’m willing to listen to this one” sort of thing.

    I was talking to my sister, and she gave me a good example. In “The Motto” by Drake, Lil Wayne’s line is “Almost drowned in the p***y, so I swam to the butt.” Now that is explicit-ish and some may say it’s vulgar, but it makes you chuckle. And maybe I shouldn’t be comparing Jay Park to western musicians but that is the appeal Jay seems to be going for, and the songs are in English, so it seems fair to be comparing him to western artists.

  • http://twitter.com/lily_of_west CLover/Infiknight

    I have to say I’m guilty of having this mixtape on replay constantly. And whack lyrics aside, I really do enjoy it. I know the lyrics are too explicit and maybe even inappropriate to an extent, but hell the boy took a chance to do what he wanted for a long time now. Seeing how he made his career in kpop (where the most ridiculous lyrics and dance moves are banned from radio and TV stations), he felt restricted and couldn’t really do or say what he wanted to so when he got a chance he jumped to it. Metaphorically and literally.

    Granted he could have gone about it in a classier way, sure, but I think he was going for that shock effect. And needless to say, he got it.

    While he’s still lacking writing skills, some parts in those aren’t that bad. I have to say “Hopeless love” was the track that pulled me in instantly. And I did laugh at the opening line, but to this day I don’t know if it was a “mock laugh” or a “wow that’s kinda, sorta cleaver in a way” laugh. Second song is, and I know all ya’ll will judge me, “Do what we do”. I can’t stop playing that shit. I just can’t. For some reason these two songs are two of the most played songs on my playlist.

    I can’t point fingers at him for the explicit shit, because let’s face it, I have a playlist called “Them songs” on my PC, consisting of J. Holiday, Joe, D’Angelo, R. Kelly, dG, Jeremih, Chris Brown etc. you get the picture. The only thing I can call him out on, is lack of lyrical skills. I’m surprised since Jay should be excelling at this. He’s a native speaker, he’s been writing in English for a long time now (or so he says), he’s been working with American producers (why the hell did you let him write that shit, and yes I’m looking at you Cha Cha, after “Speechless” really?), shit Jay you should have this on lock down. How can you fail this much.

    And cheesy fail lyrics aside, I really did enjoy this mixtape. It was a breath of fresh air, the actual production was really good and just hope he either perfects his writing skills by the time he decides to drop an album in English, or at least hires some people to write for him. Jay baby, you tried, you got it out of your system, now please get your shit together, and show us all you can really do. Despite me actually listening to this mixtape and even enjoying it to a certain degree, I still think your lyrics were whack as hell. But I do love you, remember that. Oh, and one more thing, for the love of God, get laid and don’t rap ever again!!!

    Ackk what’s up with those lyrics? Disturbing O.o 

  • http://twitter.com/anmicache Che

    Contrary to this post, You Know How We Do, is what I enjoyed the most. The beat is sick, the lyrics were spot on except on that part where Jay talks about his dick being a wand and that mention of Kim Kardashian. Hopeless Love is a close second and Body2Body is a close third.

    90% of his lyrics is ridiculous but I enjoyed the songs nonetheless. I believe Jay will gradually improve in his lyrics… this is only a few step to his blossoming career. I am excited imagining just how good his songs might be in the future if he can already produce this kind of music now. 

    I actually enjoy his rapping when he does it live. He is still nasally but you can tell he is slowly getting into the flow.  

  • http://twitter.com/suimanstudio suimanstudio

    To be perfectly honest I disliked him in 2PM as well. Just my opinion, but he can’t sing – at least not as well as others. His rap was/is pathetic. I could never understand the hype around him, since he’s not even THAT good looking.

    To me he’s just some average guy with average qualities as a performer. 

    • http://twitter.com/lily_of_west CLover/Infiknight

      First you make it sound as tho everyone in 2pm can sing. If that’s the case, check your ears because the only ones with singing talent there are Junsu and Junho. Second you make it sound like the rest can rap. No they can’t whoever says anyone in 2pm  can rap is deluded. Third, why does he need to be good looking for people to like him? And if some people find him good looking it’s a matter of personal taste. Not everyone has the same taste and beauty standards.

      No one ever claimed Jay was one amazing vocal, even Jay himself said he’s not that good. He’s working on developing his vocal talent, he likes to rap, he never claimed to be a rapper. And you’re wrong he’s one hell of a dancer, and performer. He’s one of the best (if not the best) male dancer in kpop. So even tho I respect your opinion, if this was just one lame attempt to belittle Jay or his talent, it came across as very shallow. If you dislike him that much then why even bother reading and commenting on a article about him.

      • http://twitter.com/suimanstudio suimanstudio

        Wowowow, chill girl.

        First, you make it sound like I actually listen to 2pm…I did, didn’t like it and as written above, stopped caring.

        Second, since the article is about Jay, I wasn’t referring to anyone else from 2pm. When I wrote “as others” I was mainly referring to other idol “rappers” who clearly beat him in the field.

        Third, noone has to be good looking but since it was MY DAMN OPINION based on MY DAMN STANDARDS I expressed my wonder as to why he is considered so hot…Because you know, to me he’s not as good looking as fangirls make it seem like. 

        Third and a half, Kpop is 80% looks, 10% talent and the rest are catchy tunes. I’m perfectly fine with average looking people in Kpop, in fact I would rather prefer more talent over physical charm. My problem is with fans who hail certain average idols like they are the definition of beauty. Actually even that wouldn’t bother me, if these fangirls would 1) respect my opinion whatever it may be and 2) not try to claim I’m being blind for not seeing how XY is “the” god/goddess…

        I did not claim Jay Park is ugly, I simply raised my eyebrows and questioned how can people hail his physicals to the heavens – only the delusional type of fans take this as an insult because others reply with “Yeah, not many see his charm, To me, he’s good looking” – and period. I can totally respect this as an argument over “OMFG HOW CAN YOU NOT SEE HE’S HOT!!!” <- this is the "hype" I've been writing about…

        Lastly, I did not belittle him.
        I was – once again – raising my opinion. I read the article because…ugh, dunno it was posted and I had time? But on a serious note, I read the article because I wanted to hear for myself what the mixtape sounds like. I don't trust the subjective opinion of article writers because often I'm on a different view. I thought maybe I would get into one of his songs – didn't happen. 

        I didn't know disliking someone's previous works means I have to never look at their stuff again. Excuse my curiosity. F(x) is a good example, I never got into their songs until Electric Shock came along. I effin dig that song and officially claimed it my summer hit. 

        About performance, I admit being my fault for not using the words "singer&rapper". I know Jay's a good dancer. I'm used to saying 'performer' instead of specifying the field because half of the idols aren't really singers, rappers, dancers – lately actors…I feel uncomfortable giving them the title when truly I think they don't earn it. In Jay's case performer meant to represent "singer&rapper". 

        It's just my view but why not practice at the studio singing and rapping while earning money with things one can truly showcase as talent. It's not an excuse to say "oh well, I'm not good but at least I try"…That way only his core fanbase will ever appreciate him, he should instead earn his money with dancing and silently practice until he reaches a level that could be appreciated by the people who now criticize him. 

        If trying would matter so much, I would be earning money with art and excuse my little skills with "at least I try"…Rather I earn money with what I have skills for and practice art until I become worthy of attention…

    • Black_Plague

      His rap is better than the garbage spewn out from Taecyeon and Chansung’s mouth at the least. If anything, 2PM is more difficult to take seriously and personally, they’d be better off joining the circus as acrobats.

    HAHAHAHA. I was laughing while reading all this. Idk, I felt as if he doesn’t like being called a kpop idol And so he tries to make himself seem like the complete opposite.

  • Streby

    A friend and I have this theory that Jay Park has two halves to his personality like Mr. Jekyll and Hyde. One half is this awesome half that is honest and makes music that I am proud to listen to like ‘Abandoned’,’Tonight’,and ‘Girlfriend’ (sans the ‘I want to bite you’ crap)

    His other half is well…to put it nicely, it makes me genuinely question my taste in music and even my sanity sometimes. I think his major problem is that he takes himself way to seriously, he finds the need to be so critically open about everything. I totally respect that he has a sex life, aggression issues and whatever else and sometimes likes very mediocre beats (this whole mixtape was horribly mediocre for me), but why does he feel the need to throw it all at the public and expect them to care? I mean he seriously needs to tone it down a notch, and its not because I’m not open minded or all that jazz, its just unnecessary and we get the point: you like to have sex. 

    I’m genuinely contemplating if Jay Park has some sort of Bipolar Disorder or something which makes him change so rapidly…

  • Fresh Lemons

    This mixtape is pretty terrible. I know what the problem is. See in Kpop, the majority of ppl can not write or compose music themselves. When a person finally does decides to make their own music, 90% of the time it is not great. The problem is that people like Jay Park, JYJ, etc are artist that are creating music that they should have done during their teen years to learn from their mistakes just like a regular artist. Usually you have an artist from any country creating music during the school years and when they debut on a major label, their music is at least pretty decent. In Kpop, its the exact opposite where ppl are starting to write lyrics, etc after they are on a label and never went through the experience and time to make mistakes and improve. Instead, you have something like this mixtape which jaywalkers are eating up eventhough it is bad. I want to know who is Jay looking up to as a role model in Hip Hop if he is making music like this. Jay needs to stop making music and think about what exactly he wants to do with music because this trend of rapping and singing does not work for him. This image he is portraying in the mixtape doesnt fit him. How can someone go to South Korea and be an idol and then come back to the states and release music that is complete opposite?

    • gowhalego

      Agrees about other countries’ singer-songwriters generally just writing songs earlier. In fact, most of the mainstream singers overseas who debut at around the same age as Korean artistes write their own songs (even Ke$ha writes her own songs). The amount of time in which they spent polishing up their songwriting skills in their teenage years are probably spent on gruelling singing/dancing lessons for their Korean counterparts. Not that there is nothing bad about the latter, it is just the reality of the culture. At least Jay Park is moving in the right direction, just that if he really wants to strike it big in the songwriting criteria, it probably will take a few more years. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XRPZWO7Y4XSG5EAKWD5O7IKEYE V4rn4k

      hes just being in line with mainstream american crap rap. i think he just wants to make some money. ill give him money for the his attempt on this mix tape, but ill only listen to his old stuff. we’ve seen the good stuff hes done with demon, abandoned, tonight, and NEW BREED, amongst many other things. plus his work iwth 2pm cant be forgotten. jay park has too much credibility.

      • Fresh Lemons

        If you are referring his works of demon, abandoned, tonight and new breed as hip hop stuff and being good then I cant agree with that. His work has been average as best. Him being apart of 2PM doesnt mean anything in this conversation bc that is him being apart of a manufacture pop group and the discussion is about him being a solo artist writing and composing his own work. Him being in 2PM doesnt give him any credibility as being a Hip Hop artist in which he is trying to showcase in this mixtape

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003507967305 Neal Lindberg

      From the legal and business perspectives, nothing wrong with the companies hiring music producers/songwriters to compose songs so the idols can focus on the performance and other aspects of the idol job (variety, CFs, etc).  Artistically, it’s a total crime.  I really wish that companies also teach the trainees how to write their own music. I mean, before their debut instead of after while they only get to practice their composing skills on 1 or 2 tracks.  If they’re taught to sing and dance, why not writing music as well?  I know that JYP gives more freedom to its artists (compared to SM, but probably not as much as YG if not mistaken), but it’s still not enough to turn Jay into a skilled rapper/artist once he’s left on his own.

      • https://twitter.com/#!/LimaCake LimaCake

        I wonder if it’s more risky for the entertainment companies to teach all of them how to write and compose music. If the kids can sing, dance, and make their own music, it’s almost as if the entertainment company loses control of the artist. 

  • Theorist

    his delusional fans will go ” oh my god, this is best i’ve heard. better than Treyz! better than blabbalbla ” and “this is awesome, you’re a genius!”. There’s more to similar as the previous ones I’ve stated. I mean honestly, the lyrics are.. -_-‘ Back in SKorea, he has his idol image and does the aegyo part. Back in the states, he’ll grind you like heck with his lyrics. But nevertheless, I hope he improves his songwriting skills and I like his background song. It’s just the lyrics ruined it.. He needs experience to be able to write smooth flowing lyrics. Even if it takes to fk a girl.

  • water_archer

    Jay, you doing too much. Simmer down

  • http://twitter.com/SouthPawSeoul 이정남

    I don’t see how any of Jay’s fans consider him a good rapper, this mixtape excluded his rapping has always been weak, his collaboration with  other artists like Dok, showcased how bad Jay is in comparison.  Not saying he can’t ever rap but behind that fake swagger is very weak rapping. 

  • Rotaryknight

    i think you are looking for too much meaning in the song.
    I feel that the album is enjoyable. Its funny that the lyrics are basically inline with the current hiphop……corny and all, its still enjoyable.

    • Fresh Lemons

       The reason why the writer is breaking down these songs is because Jay himself is trying to take himself seriously as a rapper/singer with this mixtape and bc of that, he is open to criticism

  • edenhyper

    Didn’t he admit he made this whole mix-tape in like…30 minutes? I haven’t heard it and nor do I want to as much as I love Jay. It has nothing do with the lyrics. I just think we need to take into consideration that he probably didn’t put much effort into this mix-tape. Not dismissing the fact that people do find it awful. That’s fine. I’m just not going to put too much emphasis on something that wasn’t done…with much care. Now if this was his actual solo album…and we were talking about his lyrics there – then I’d guess that would be a better and thought-provoking conversation, than a silly mix-tape he made in like a day. 

    Again, I’m not trying to stick up for him. bad lyrics are bad no matter what medium they are presented in. However…I’ve read and listened to the same and worse from American rappers…so I can’t wholly blame him for being an Antichrist here. Whether he improves or not…I don’t know. At least he attempts to write his own stuff.

  • http://twitter.com/KristyHearts_05 Kristina

    I personally don’t care much about the content in his mixtape. It’s the fact that one moment he wants to be a K-Pop idol, doing cross-dressing, and aegyo, then the next he wants to be a gangsta. lol I can’t see how anyone can take his mixtape seriously. I still like Jay Park and I think he’s talented but rapping is not him.

  • GracefulCassieShapley

    The only time where I kind of was okay with his rapping was in level 1000 ft. DOK2. It was like listening to a smaller dog barking with the big dogs. His rapping isn’t bad, but his lyrical skills (when it comes to writing raps) are terrible. Half the battle of being a rapper relies on your abilities to write clever and witty lyrics. The other half of course is selling your rap with good flow, confidence, and “Swag.” 

  • Kelsey Moore

    I personally thought it was ok. Not good but not HORRIBLY bad. The kid can rap, but he was trying to act ‘ tough gangsta’ with this one (and defiantly not on this mixtape). And I honestly feel as though he is frustrated. He needs to get laid.

    • Fresh Lemons

      You should define what you mean as “rap”. I can give him props on having a decent flow which even many kpop artist in boy groups lack but from a lyrical standpoint, it is below average.

    jay parks just trying to be in line with mainstream american garbage. hes trying to make some quick bucks. that’s it. other than that his previous work gives him too much credibility anyway for us to take this mixtape seriously. ill give him money for his attempt, but ill only listen to his old stuff

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/MMRQEZEPSNJ26LJ7XJNDDM5NCI JasmineA

      Um…not all american mainstream music is garbage, and who knows why he did it, no one personally knows him, maybe he really does think this way, its not like he can write lyrics like this in Korea and not be banned for it. He’s talked about his mixtape in interviews and he seemed pretty okay with it.

    • Mika_San123

      I don’t think he was trying to make money off the mixtape, considering he put it up for free downloading. And mainstream American music isn’t always “garbage”.

      I really don’t have much of a problem with Jay’s singing, rapping, or the song itself (as in the melodies and beats). But I do agree that the lyrics of the mixtape showed a steep dip in quality compared to his previous albums. They were just so… disappointingly unclassy, and they kind of make him sound like a douchebag.

    hopeless love is a really memorable spot on track although it ends a bit abrupt for me. the other tracks have a good beat & rhythm but aren’t “sticky”. i do agree though that the lyrics are sometimes a bit too much. it’s not “good” or “bad” but it annoys and distracts from the flow of the music.

    Truth be told I kind of like Jay Park but I couldnt take how sleazy his lyrics are.I mean seriously talk bout your thang and girls and put it in a song like that what the? And most Jaywalkers are girls.Seriously man.

  • AGNS02

    I find it ironically funny that the author is actually more disturbed over the “shocking sexual descriptions” rather than how the lyrics composition were just flat out shitty even for pre-school level. You know why people still mock you, Jay? It’s cause you’re trying to be street by churning out lyrics like “Your girl’s legs split like Kris and Kim Kardashian/Her wand is my d*** and she be doin magic tricks/On my man s*** because the mack is back again”

    Boy, stop. Her imaginary dick is probably bigger than yours.

      “Personally, the hyper-sexual lyrics didn’t bother me as much as some of the sloppy execution. Writing a rap isn’t just about stringing together controversial lyrics; it’s also about weaving together thoughtful metaphors and witty lines.”

    • exo_4_life

       do you even listen to rap? if you do then lyrics like that shouldn’t surprise you.

      go back to k-pop you fucking cunt

      • AGNS02

        honestly? no. and did my comment made me sound like i’m surprised? i was actually going for a more trollish approach rather than trying to be the Asian Pitchfork.  those lyrics are pretty common in any songs nowadays tbh, but that doesn’t mean its good composition.

        i am pretty fucking cunty in real life, so point taken. but i’m giving some serious side-eyes to you for asking me to “go back to k-pop” with that Grade 5 username. it’s like a Mainland Chinese asking me to fuck back to China. INVALID bitch.

      no explanation for this, sb? it’s not like jay refused to talk to you if he read this article right? or is there any other reason? someone also asked this before in jay’s interview article. if you don’t want to tell us and keep skipping through this kind of comments, well that’s your business. but i wish you’d take us readers’ concern more seriously.

    • Alex O.

      While I agree with you, the author said that the sexual nature didn’t bother him/her as much as the “sloppy execution.”

      And going back to the removal part, I’d say that there should be no shame in keeping this article up because it does not represent the aggregate opinions of Seoulbeats. It’s just one writer and as a seasoned idol/singer Jay Park should understand that there will be people who hate his work and others who love it. That shouldn’t stop him from giving an interview to one of the most popular platforms for discussing K-Pop. The removal was understandable, but at the same time unprofessional because a clear-cut explanation as to why that was done should have been provided. So a forewarning would be nice if this were to ever occur again, though I can’t promise there won’t be unhappy readers.

      @Ares I think it’s best to productively offer advice for the future as opposed to offering less-than-constructive criticism.

  • Eliza17

    The thing is he’s talking about sex in practically every song and none of them are particularly introspective which I feel is what makes a good rap.  He’s just going on about how he’s gonna lay it down.  Considering he’s been through so much, it would’ve been more interesting to hear some thoughts and feelings about how he’s gotten to where he is.  
    But, he’s gotta start somewhere I guess, and that is apparently in the bedroom LOL

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Grace-Hong/15213088 Grace Hong

    To me it just seems like a test to see how far he can go while also utilizing a shock factor. I mean, it certainly has people talking about him, no? lol Also, comparatively, anything he could put out now might seem all the better since it’s not like that *gasp* O_O smutty mix tape! I’m certainly curious which way he will go for his next release; will he revert back to aegyo, will he continue with shocking OMG I can’t believe he said that, or will he reveal a more matured side? Hopefully and most likely the latter. :0)

    I’m sorry, I refuse to believe that’s the same Jay Park that came out with Happy Ending or Know Your Name or basically any other Jay Park song. Some kind of kdrama style body swap went down and that Jay Park must of been replaced with an over-sexed duche.

    The whole mix tape is just SEX SEX SEX SEX SEX OMG GUURLL IMMA SEX YOU SO HARD. I’m not a big rap fan, but some raps are genuinely good, because they have meaning. this was just SEX. We get it. You’re good in bed. Now can you sing about something else, bro?

    • http://twitter.com/anmicache Che

      sex is predominantly one of the major subjects of rap songs since time immemorial. if you want some good raps from jay park go check out clouds by clara c, dumbfoundead and jay park. you can also check his 6’7 cover

      this is jay’s first mixtape. first free album in english. give him time, i’m sure he’ll improve from here on. 

  • http://twitter.com/agentproc Bee. ARgh. EsS.

    Well I’m sure I’m in the minority here….but the lyrics didn’t bother me at all (maybe because I’m from L.A. …and that kind of ish is run of the mill) and Imho the production on the tracks were pretty sick. I actually kind of liked it … off to download 

  • https://me.yahoo.com/a/zs7ITR93moWQEekTSwzTHR9j1u.Z2xEl0w--#542b8 LoL

    i didn’t even know he’s got that much flow. i’m kinda surprised actually, really shitty lyrics though. 

  • 0021581

    I liked some of the beats but the lyrics totally turned me off. I mean, if they were simply corny or a little lame I’d be okay with it but some of his lyrics are just flat out offensive and wrong. I think he has good potential but it too concerned with trying to be a gangster like many western rap acts.

  • taestits

    What bothers me the most, believe it or not, isn’t the crappy lyrics, but the fact that he so poorly co-opts what is actually a beautiful genre of music and then proceeds to reinforce the idea that sex and bragging about how awesome you are is all that rapper’s songs are about. He could have done so much more in terms of lyrical content, especially with such a capable producer.

    • http://twitter.com/sisiberlyn Sierra Bell

      THANK YOU. He wants to be a trendsetter and a standout artist, yet he puts out the same filth everyone else is. Hip hop is not all about sex and arrogance, there was actually a time when it meant something and spoke to people. Honestly, I hate songs that are all about being explicit and throwing out as much sex and curse words and boasting as a person can. Jesus gave us music to do something beautiful with it, and hip hop can certainly be beautiful, but this is not it.

  • angrybxtchtiki

    oh man jay…I can’t even loool.after listening to this mix tape, I was crying for hours from laughter because these lyrics were too hilarious yet rather disgusting xD I love jay but he really should not rap and definitely no more oversexual songs.(btw twerk used the way jay used it refers to doing something else..and it’s not dancing lol think outside the box lol)

  • http://twitter.com/jwalker_aleksie Rhys Aleksie

    i know the lyrics are laughable but it’s actually good live. it works with jay’s strong points on stage. check out this vid for his you know how we do ft dumbfoundead /watch?v=ZBEQxRdpgnA and this vid for body2body /watch?v=IP3WNy8gXtY

  • chocophobia

    I almost couldn’t believe how ludicrous the lyrics are…. I’m cracking up right now.
    But SERIOUSLY…. smh… More than anything, I’m just disappointed because he wrote the songs himself… Just… UGH I’m listening to it right now and … >.> NO JP I DO NOT WANT TO TWERK IT THANK YOU VERY MUCH lool

  • eplizo

    the mixtape was just bad lol

  • Almira Agathas

    When I read the lyric, I feel like reading a poorly-written smut fanfiction.
    Sorry, there are a lot of KPop HipHop artists who wrote lyric better than him i.e Epik High

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001288549501 Sarah Ho

      But Epik High is godly.  LOL.  Probably the best rappers in K-Pop.  Of course they’d write better lyrics than Jay.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001288549501 Sarah Ho

    I love Jay; I really do.  But these lyrics are… well… bad.  Just bad.  And I really do hope that he begins to improve his lyrics because this is straight-out hard to listen to.  LOL.  I love the way he raps… just that his lyrics are really not that great is all :/  And like someone said below, I’m very eager to see what he’ll release next… LOL hopefully something not about sex.  k bro, we know it’s on your mind.  Talk about something else now.

  • Talissa Trieste

    My initial thought when I read the post’s title was ‘Must download mixtape!’ But I am a bit scared to listen to it after reading your review. I love Jay, but I prefer his singing and dancing. He really should leave the mc-ing to the mc’s. I kind of expected more substance to his lyrics, considering he’s very active in the hip hop community as a b-boy. Chris Brown is another artist who can sing but cannot rap. 

  • betty matai lungleng

    i just love the mixtape <3 lol. he's rapping is hilarious but i like it, the beat and stuff. William hung especially,,.i think it's really cool.this mixtape is really cool to me,just the type i like.. but the lyrics(all) it's too much for me. i would love to rap along but its too much for a 13 year old me.. hehe.. what would my parents think? lmao.. i never expected such lyrics from jay,but since it's an independent project.let it be. love you Jay <3

  • exo_4_life

    lol at the writer of this…if you listen to k-pop you shouldn’t review this mixtape.

  • https://twitter.com/conzzxD connie

    Did he write the lyrics to ALL of these songs?

  • Nikita

    I actually liked it. I mean maybe I’m weird like that but the mix tape was pretty legit to me

  • http://twitter.com/sisiberlyn Sierra Bell

    Can I just say that probably 90% of Jay Park’s demographic is 15-16 year old girls? I understand that parents have to teach their kids what’s right and wrong to watch/listen to/etc., but they can’t control everything and if a fan wants to listen to this mixtape, oh they’ll find a way. I’m sorry, but teenagers are having way to much sex as it is and even though music is not the source of the problem, it certainly is a contributing factor considering that music does do A LOT to set the mood. The last thing Jay Park’s 15-16 year old fangirls need is any mood-setting music to get their minds on that kind of stuff (any more than they already are, anyway).

  • candice lewis

    seriously if you dont like it, then dont listen to it. there is nothing wrong with it. i love it, and wish i could buy it. there nothing wrong with it. have you even listen to the music now a days..this doesnt even compare to them. i love it, and he did a great job with it. and two dont listen to everything you see on the internet..like this article, shame on you.
