One of Korean hip hop"s highly reputable underground rappers MC Meta, who made headlines lately with his heavy grievance of mainstream Korean hip hop scene and its imaginable negative affect on young minds, gave an interview to "Kyunghyang Shinmun" this beyond August 12. The rapper is currently web hosting a festival titled "Everyone"s Mic", which is meant to serve as a gateway for aspiring rappers to take their shot at being the following rap star.
When the interviewer remarked, "You gave the impression on "Show Me the money 1" and "Show Me the money 2", so your grievance got here as a surprise," MC Meta responded that he"s at all times criticized the show. He said, "Truthfully, all the way via "Show Me the Money" and afterwards, I have steadily denounced [the show] via a number of channels. This country"s rappers don"t have a right sort level where they may be able to meet the mainstream target market [and show off their talent]. With the vulnerable basis of the [hip hop] genre, I became once first of all happy that "Show Me the Money" got here along. But when I entered [the broadcasting world], I felt a undeniable restrict in the "media system." From the loss of sound apparatus that absorbs low-pitched notes, their overall working out of hip hop became once limited. There were also more drama-like components that were emphasized in place of the music. During the broadcasting, there were several times I just dropped from the show. Afterwards, I thought, "It"d be greater if we created our own stage," which is the entire concept at the back of "Everyone"s Mic"."
The interview then asked, "What do you believe you studied is the problem with "Show Me the Money"? MC Meta replied, "Still, in seasons one and two, there has been once some weight in the track itself. But afterwards, they began emphasizing the provocative elements, and I felt that the contestants were being goaded. Now it"s embarrassing to even call [SMTM 4] a "hip hop program." Because Korea"s hip hop roots are so weak, it sways dramatically even with only one show. The rappers are running helter skelter like a herd of worried sheep from the howling of the wolf (SMTM 4). Whilst you watch "Show Me the money 1" auditions, they make masses and thousands contestants line up and rap, bobbing their heads like birds. It"s an atmosphere where contestants are forced to turn anything dramatic. The complete lot is inaccurate from there. It"s now no longer a machine where fair judgement and diversity in the genre is possible."
Regarding the debatable lyrics that surrounded the show, the rapper asserted, "Do we need to settle for the negative portrayal of second-class electorate and ladies in hip hop? Of path not. There is an identical debate in the U.S. Snoop Dogg degraded ladies such a lot in the lyrics he wrote that he even earned the name "pimp." However, later he acknowledged that the surroundings he grew up in didn"t even permit him to be informed the ones things and apologized. It"s just right to precise one"s fair mind the use of rap as an creative tool. But it"s a other tale altogether on TV. When I watched a undeniable rap combat program based mostly totally in the U.S., the rappers ignored the expletives on their own. "Show Me the Money" at the alternative hand, turns out to stay pulling the ones [controversial subjects] out."
MC Meta concluded, "The popular more or less hip hop in the U.S. most often has to do with "money" and "sex." But in our country, there has been once overall consensus that the ones forms of subjects didn"t truly strike a chord with us. But that all of sudden changed. They without delay brought the yank taste of hip hop [over here], emulating their luck formula. It"s turn out to be common to comment on subjects of the yearning for luck and making an ostentatious screen of your existing prestige in the lyrics. i suspect that view carried over to "Show Me the Money". This present day even hip hop manias are saying, "There is not anything meaningful in the lyrics," "How did things turn out to be this way." Poetic and literary lyrics are even criticized as "gay hip hop." It"s a scenario that arose with the popularization of hip hop. i suspect we must conquer this procedure in the most productive way possible."
