Rapper Skolor and producer HYK2ST (read: hyuk-east) of EDPD Records have released a new digital single and music video.
The title ‘EKJ‘ stands for ‘いい感じ‘ (read: ee kan-gee, or colloquially: eh kan-gee) which means ‘to feel good’ or ‘cool.’ In the track, all four rappers rap in Japanese about their idea of EKJ.
Skolor was inspired by the bridge of Jpop group Morning Musume’s ‘Love Revolution 21‘, where the phrase “choh choh choh ee kan-gee” (超超超いい感じ; lit.: feeling super super super good) is repeated.
As for the featured Japanese rappers, Jinmenusagi has released several albums and is famous for tracks like ‘TOKYO TOWN (feat. Y’s)‘. ACE COOL is part of the label ‘DREAM BOY’ lead by KEN THE 390, has released four free albums and is currently actively performing at live venues. Lui Hua released a mini album in December.
The music video for ‘EKJ’ was directed by Skolor and filmed by Myeongjong Kim in Asakusa, Tokyo.‘EKJ’ on iTunes
