This week’s SB Mixtape is all about rap. With a lot of attention being cast on the rap (& hip-hop) genre and culture — thanks to popular competition shows such as Show Me the Money and Unpretty Rapstar – rap seems to be steadily gaining more mainstream traction. To rap is one thing, but to be a rapper, knowledgeable and embracing the culture, is another avenue completely. The discussion is vast – encompassing how k-pop idols factor into the culture and addressing the topic of authenticity.

While this mixtape is definitely not the be all and end all of Korean rap, it does give a glimpse of both old school and new school rappers. Check it out below!
