Check out the documentary-style web series IATV which introduces underground rappers and producers!
IATV is made by Son Gihyun. He started the series to shine light on the rappers he knows as well as their lives and their music. Although there are no English subtitles, you can still get a peek into the lives of various underground rappers and listen to their music — a great way to discover new artists! Plus, it is very interesting to see how they live, work, and interact with their friends. You get straightforward, unadorned every-day life scenes and each episode is wholly concentrated on the musician which makes this documentary a worthwhile watch.
Three episodes have been uploaded so far:
Episode one features rapper and producer Under Void 7 who usually performs in Hongdae and Itaewon. He has released a solo album as well as a mixtape and is currently working on his second mixtape. The camera follows him from his bed to his studio. His friend and producer Sungho is introduced as well.
Episode two documents a few hours in the life of Blackbullet (흑탄) who you might know from his project album with Wadi which came out last year. He shows where he usually works and introduces some of his friends, amongst others rappers Dinozee and EZD, who recently released his fifth mixtape.
Episode three introduces J.yung who is very concerned about showing his natural fun and easy-going self. He gets his inspiration from b-boy music and likes fresh sounds like the ones produced by his friend Super Killer B.
It looks like a new episode is released every week, so look forward to more!
