My new favorite rapper, iKON's Bobby (saranghaeyo), just featured on another song, and I can't even.
The new song, "Come Here," is the second of YG's recent two hip-hop project groups. The first was my jam "Good Boy," by two of my other fave rappers, GD and Taeyang. Unlike the other AKF writers, I'm really hoping YG comes out with more of these project groups. Something with CL and WINNER would be hawt.
Anyway, "Come Here" is straight-up hip-hop. Unlike Jay Park and Zico (who was totally hot before he came out with "Tough Cookie"), Masta Wu, Dok2, and Bobby (saranghaeyo) make hip-hop their own.
"Come Here" starts off with that ajusshi Masta Wu, and he's OK. But when Dok2 starts, oh my. Boy slays it. And Bobby (saranghaeyo) ... I can't even describe how amazing he is. His voice. His face. That stare.
I'm super happy he's getting a chance to shine. "Born Hater," "I'm Different," and now this? I feel like my ovaries are going to explode.
And he's SO SILLY.
I love the video for this song, too. It shows the real hip-hop life, with guys holding umbrellas for you, remote-controlled helicopters, and big glasses of milk. The only thing I didn't like about this MV was the girl in the spiked bra. Like, what even was her role?
Whore, stay away from Bobby (saranghaeyo).
BOTTOM LINE: It's so refreshing for kpop to release a real hip-hop song.
