After making a name for himself in the American battle rap scene, releasing a handful of mixtapes and albums, and dabbling in Korean guest features, Dumbfoundead made his official Korean market debut this month with the 'Foreigner' mini album.
Lead off by the bombastic "Hyung" single with accompaniment by Korean rap veterans, 'Foreigner' makes a statement and acts as a link between international music communities. DFD comes off a little bit angry, asserting himself with the same kind of vigor he showcased on his "It G Ma" remix guest verse. He continues to show dexterity with his lyrics, at one point rhyming "you're forever 21, never be a hyung" in a casual but effective way. The guest features elevate the song, with Dok2, Simon D and Tiger JK all taking turns behind the mic to boast and show their skills. In the song, Dumbfoundead tackles the respect thing in Korea about how younger males have to call older males hyung. He basically says that it doesn't matter if you're older, you only deserve the hyung title by earning respect.
