Junggigo, Beenzino team up
“The recording is finished and in the final stages. We are confident that they will be a ‘hip-hop-buster,’ because they put their heart and soul in to it,” it said.
Junggigo, whose real name is Go Jung-gi, recently set a record in the Korean music industry: For four consecutive weeks on the KBS live music program “Music Bank,” his duet “Some” with So-you of Sistar has remained in the No. 1 spot.
The song’s popularity came as a surprise and was bigger than anticipated, catapulting both singers into the spotlight.
Beenzino, a graduate of Seoul National University, is a renowned indie rapper who has generated hit tracks such as “Dali, Van, Picasso,” “Aqua Man” and “Boogie On&On.” He has previously worked with Junggigo, who featured in his song “yourbody” last year.
