Debut: September 2013
The men that make up the talented trio EQuality are different when it comes to traditional hip-hop artists. Rappers Kilo, Young Lee, and Jsim released their first single “Choice” in September. With strong hip-hop beats and electro synth sounds, it creates an addicting sound that illustrates EQuality’s confidence and ambition. It was produced by veteran hip-hop duo Freestyle. The three try to showcase a diverse and unique sound to their music by creating their own style of flow for each track. Their second single “Monster” shows off banger trap music style, something that has not been seen in the Korean music scene. The track is a bit hardcore but shows EQuality’s true musical style. Other artists under the same management EQuality are Freestyle, JD, XOXO, Flow Motion (Choicchi of Street Digger), and Sound Wash.
EQuality hopes to share fresh new tracks that will not just restrict to mainstream or underground rap but with hip-hop fans, as well as general fans of music.
