[MV Review] G-Dragon - One of a Kind

YEAH IT'S LATE AS FUCK BUT I'M GOIN HAM THIS WEEK MOTHERFUCKERS

PREPARE YOUR ANUSES FOR ARTICLE SPAM

FIRST UP GD'S ONE OF A KIND.



YOU READY FOR THIS SHIT?



GD makes a totally shittastic comeback with a mini album (with yet another in the works, incoming soonish), and it shows from the songs he picked as title tracks.

One of a Kind's MV is a clusterfuck of kigger swag, exploitation, and schizophrenic (literally) drug paraphernalia/phenomena. There's some dancing and close-ups, but those end up being, of all things, breaks of normalcy between the WTFs.

First up, let's take a look at the kigger swag. Exhibit A:
L to R: Choice, GD, Lydia Paek, Hwangssabu
A theme you're going to notice if you've been paying attention to GD's comeback is that he's using the whole thing as an excuse to show off his friends and money. It's totally fine that he has all these people come together to support his comeback, we'd all do the same if we were in his position. While nepotism ain't dead, and flashy displays of money aren't entirely grounds to base an MV's shittiness off of, it's when you do it so tackily even Prince would cringe. 

I mean just look at em. SO EMBARASSING, FUCK.

Second point: the exploitation. This entire MV is full of exploitation of pretty much anything you can think of. Some examples I found especially egregious:

#smokeweedeveryday #bitchimblastinatem
It's a big "FUCK YOU" to everyone who thought he smoked pot on purpose
and to all his fangirls who thought oppa didn't mean it.
NIGGA KILLED A TIGER, SKINNED IT, TURNED IT INTO A SHITTY OUTFIT,
AND ENSLAVED ITS CUB.
He stole some black kids off the streets to put in his MV... SNEAKY BASTARD, JUST WHEN
EVERYONE WAS COMPLAINING ABOUT LACK OF BLACK REPRESENTATION
Just what the fuck is this sex doll shit.
As you can see, GD has some big brassy balls to pull this shit off. I'm still surprised no one banned this MV yet, especially considering Case 3.

Case 3: drug paraphernalia. The rest of the MV is more G-Druggin shit. I kid you not.

Look at this gorilla-ass motherfucker snort coke on cam like that, da fuck.
There's more stuff of course, but to gif it all would take way too much effort.

What we see of the dance is pretty simple. Nothing too complicated, nothing too difficult to do either. Mostly  random "swagging" around.

I almost shat bricks when I saw that Taeyang ditched the foreverhawk for
his debut cornrows again... 
This part was nice though.
Random twerking in pleather leotards, yesssssssssssssss.
The song itself is a pretty fat clusterfuck itself. Though I liked the fat beat Choice made, everything went to shit after GD started on his verses. UGH. It's like he tried combining Lil Wayne with Busta Rhymes. And that sounds as terrible as you can imagine. It tries to do too much, and sounds like at least 3 different songs spliced together. It's unfortunate, cause the beat definitely had a ton of potential in my opinion.

Poor Choice.
TL;DR:
This sucks, total waste of a nice beat.

+:

  • nice beat
  • Korean #twerkteam
  • Choice looks so fucking hilarious in this MV
-:
  • everything else
I give this a 2 out of 5. I like the beat.

  1. I can't stand Lydia Paek. The bitch comes off more tryhard than both GD and Taeyang combined. Congratulations to her for achieving what I thought was impossible.

    If GD wanted to rip off an American artist's style and swag why the fuck did he choose Lil Wayne?

    What's up with the black kids standing in front of a police line-up?

    Those female dancers were fine as fuck and probably the only good thing about this video.

    I shamelessly admit that this song is one of my guilty pleasures. The beat is sick.

    Taeyang looks like the hate child of a Mexican gangbanger and Omarion.

    1. Really? I'm the opposite, I don't find Lydia too annoying. Taeyang is the one I can't stand. GD is an annoying little try-hard but at least he's got some talent which partially makes up for it. Taeyang is just a fucking embarassment.

      > What's up with the black kids standing in front of a police line-up
      you should have seen all the black and latina fangirls going apeshit about this on Omona. Not that I blame them.

      I didn't even notice the snorting and smoking gestures. zaku has eagle eyes or is a closet GD fan who had this shit on replay 100 times in a row.

      I think I was the only black-latina chick not giving two fucks about those damn kids in this MV. Somebody said their are bi-racial but does it matter? Having them dress in jail gear, I try not to look so hard into it.
      The mv was a parody, a krigger how to guide to being hood without the hood.
      But you notice that doll was blond hair and blue eyes. Also he had some white chick presenting clothes for him to wear as he dismiss each one.

      I get this impression that GD view of white women is very poor. Like a pimp to a bitch relationship. Its getting on my fucking nerves.

    4. In a way I find it amusing that the darker-skinned VIPs complain about their lack of representation in Big Bang MVs. They would probably complain if a darker girl was objectified the same way white girls are in their MVs.
      I don't particularly like the way western girls (of any race) are represented in Korean media in general. Like exotic sex vixens that you want to be seen with as a status symbol. A bit of extra bling for GD.

      Pretty much GD view of white women is pure sexism yet dark skinned VIPs want to be on the same boat?_? There is a strong chance he doesn't find black women, no matter the skin tone, attractive nor would he treat them less of a novelty item in his MVs. I feel same way that the foreign women or people in general used in Kpop MVs today is of status quo and nothing much. This is about GD's status quo in an industry that apparently doesn't understand him. Which make him one of a kind, I guess if you only take him at a superficial level. Any deeper you may like what you find.

  2. I won't even bother with contemporary pop hip hop. I'm just gonna say: GD has no idea, what the fuck he is doing.
