If you find yourself bobbing your head to the remix of Masta Wu’s “Come Back”, don’t worry about it because you are not alone.
YG’s second hip-hop project is a much-anticipated one as Korean producer/rapper Masta Wu aka Woo Gin Won was revealed to be a member of the sub-unit group. He is one of the pioneers in the Korean hip-hop scene even though most people only got to know him through YG’s rapping survival show “Show Me The Money 3″. His involvement in YG’s hip-hop project has certainly brought hype to his collaboration with Korean rapper Dok2 and iKON’s Bobby.
On December 2nd, the collaboration track was finally evealed alongside a music video. The track sets itself apart from G-Dragon and Taeyang’s “Good Boy” that has more influences from EDM instead of hip-hop music.
Straying away from the usual K-Pop sound, “Come Here” stayed true to its hip-hop roots by delivering a steady rap flow in the song. The hip-hop vibe is constant in the remix and it certainly helped establish YG’s hip-hop trademark. And iKON’s Bobby continues to build a name for himself as a rapper even before the debut of his group.
Some of prominent Korean rappers such as Beenzino and The Quiett have made their cameo appearances in the music video as well, although that didn’t t help to hide the cheap cliches that can be seen in American hip-hop music videos. Perhaps it’s best if the group focused more on the song instead of trying so hard to bring out the hip-hop vibe.
