New York-based Korean-American artist Jkey (Jaeki Cho) drops one of his largest projects titled [Gyopo Anthem 퀸즈 돈벌어] (“Queens Get That Money”), an immigrant tale told from a Queens, New York native’s perspective. Download and listen to his album within!
[Gyopo Anthem 퀸즈 돈벌어] is an 18-track project that “gyopos” (Korean who grew up outside of South Korea) can truly relate to, from personal anecdotes (‘Dear BMN (부모님)‘) to green cards (‘Green Card (영주권)‘) and K-Town (‘32nd Street Anthem‘). With gyopo-style rapping interlaced over some of hip-hop’s most well-known instrumentals, this album is guaranteed to deliver the mystique, aura, and essence of Queens, New York. The artist recommends the listener to “download the project and listen to its entirety while riding the 7 train from Time Square to Main Street, Flushing.”
