Artist: KASPER (캐스퍼)
Song: HELL & BACK (Original by Kid Ink)
Album: Single “HELL & BACK”

Unfortunately, it’s much less common to find female rappers than male rappers. I have to say, Kasper has to be one of my favorites. When I listen to her rap, I get goosebumps, which doesn’t happen often. She’s truly talented and worth checking out!

pls forgive me if you have been asked this before /bows/ but I LOVE ZION.T SOOOO MUCH and i was just wondering if there has been ANY NEWS AT ALL about when he plans on releasing a third album? He is on my list of GENIUS ARTISTS WHO NEVER MAKE ANYTHING BUT PERFECT SONGS. And his lives are to dieee for. He is quite young too, i think. Younger than G-Dragon. If no new album, are there any new (2014-ish) songs that he has featured/collabed on? I'm having withdrawal symptoms from Primary's '?'. :)

Hello ^^

Unfortunately, there has been no new information on his new album. However, usually when artists are unheard of for a while, they are getting ready for a comeback. The only song that Zion.T has featured in this year was: Hey Baby (feat. Zion.T) - Crush (크러쉬)
Fortunately, TROY (트로이) that came out with their debut song, “Green Light (그린라이트),” this year is preparing with a comeback single “Why We Are” on September 23. Though, it’s not Zion.T’s comeback, TROY’s comeback (members are BUMKEY (범키), Jaewoong (재웅), Changwoo (창우), KANTO (칸토)) should at least be something that makes up for any of those withdrawal symptoms of waiting for a comeback. Be on the look out for Zion.T’s return though!

I hope this was helpful!

I'm Sorry (Feat. Welldone Potato)
  • ARTIST: Jungkey (정키)
  • ALBUM: Emotion
  • 1,306 plays

Artist: Jungkey (정키)
Song: I’m Sorry (Feat. Welldone Potato)
Album: Emotion

After four years, Jungkey released his first album in 2014. His music is a blend of pop, R&B, ballads, and blues. His music is also very emotional.  The song “I’m Sorry” is about the despairs of an ended relationship. He reminisces about his past feelings, and the listener can’t help but feel drawn into the emotions he conveys.

It's You (너여야)
  • ARTIST: Neon Bunny (야광토끼)
  • ALBUM: Single "It’s You (너여야)"
  • 1,510 plays

Artist: Neon Bunny (야광토끼)
Song: It’s You (너여야)
Album: Single “It’s You (너여야)”

Neon Bunny’s music is a version of electro-pop. Unlike the electro-pop songs we commonly hear, this is more relaxed. Rather than a more turbulent synthetic sound, “It’s You” is more mellow. It’s one of those songs that is calming but upbeat at the same time.

about your giveaway, you say album under $30, what if a winner finds two albums that together are under $30? Is is possible to get two then? c:

Hi there!

Though that sounds reasonable, it would be bending rules because it specifically says one album (well, not in those words but it means any singular album). Loopholes often cause many problems so we’ll stick to the published text and stick with one album for the winner ^^
