Tiger JK releases ‘Nice to Meet You’
Korean-American hip-hop musician Tiger JK released the new album “Nice to Meet You” (working title) Tuesday.
The musician’s talent agency, Feel Ghood Music, unveiled a picture of him taken 16 years ago along with the album title written by hand through its official Facebook page on Monday.
Tiger JK decided to bring out a new record after finding the picture of himself that was taken 16 years ago, which was sent to him by one of his fans, along with a fan letter. The new album, therefore, is based on his gratitude towards his fans.
“In the past, hip-hop was not considered mainstream music, so every single fan letter was very important and meaningful to me. I’m bringing out this single in order to thank all my fans who have long supported me,” said the singer.
“This is the letter that I want to send to my fans, who would now have become adults.”
Tiger JK, who is dubbed the “godfather of hip-hop” in Korea, runs Feel Ghood Music along with his wife, rapper Yoon Mi-rae, and rapper Bizzy.
