It G Ma.

Have y'all heard about this South Korean rapper named Keith Ape? If so, why didn't you put me on game? And if not, well time to get familiar. Apparently Keith Ape is a part of a group called The Cohorts and they are like rising underground rap stars in the East. Like the Asian A$AP Mob.

Well Keith Ape does what many up and coming rappers do, hop on industry beats and aim to make it their own-except Keith Ape actually does make it his own. Yes, he has heavily borrowed the styles of Yung Lean and OG Maco, but damn, if imitation is a form of flattery, he is paying them so much homage right now.  By the way, they are speaking Korean like 90% of the time and I can still tell they are going in! And I don't speak a lick of Korean!


This just shows you the power of music and if it speaks to your body and you're vibing, it's magical. Now his remix to Bobby Shmurda's Hot Nigga (which he titled Hot Ninja) was cool but this take on OG Maco's U Guessed It is fuckin' amazing. DJs in the US need to play this. I want to go to the club and these hip hop shows and hear DJs play this. If I had the power to make it mandatory-I would. This is so hard, bruh.
