Rapper Keebomb who was once a bell boy has returned with the EP ‘Bell Boy’, an album everyone should be looking out for.
Six years ago, he got a job at a hotel and came to Seoul from Kangwon-do despite his parents’ worries and objection. With only 150,000 won he wandered from friends’ houses to the streets without giving up on his dream. For one year he worked as a bell boy at a hotel and saved money without anyone helping him financially. In the EP’s eight tracks he talks honestly about his dream, about the things he went through with 23, 24 years of age and about his current life.
In track seven, ‘Bell Boy’, he remembers his life as a bell boy from six years ago.
The title track ‘따라가’ [Follow Me] features the hottest rapper in the Korean underground at the moment, Owen Ovadoz, who joins Keebomb to talk sincerely about their road to their dreams and goals. Compared to Keebomb’s earlier work, this EP is put together better and his rap has improved. The featurings prevent you from getting tired of it and are artists who represent Korean hiphop, like DJ SKIP from the Bulhandang Crew or newcomers ODB.
The EP also features singer-songwriter Joe Rhee from Keebomb’s crew ‘Worxx’ who has worked with San E, ODB, and Keebomb himself before. Joe Rhee helped with composing, arranging and featuring, raising expectations for the album. All eight tracks were produced by the head of Worxx Crew, producer 24.
Let’s prick our ears to the story of ‘bell boy’ Keebomb, who has experienced a lot of ups and downs despite his young age, let’s hear about his dreams when he was young, and how he is still working hard to make them come true.
