7 Must-Listen K-Pop/Hip-Hop Collaborations from 2014
If someone told me in 2010 that big names of Korean underground hip-hop would collaborating with chart-topping idols by 2014, I would’ve told them to take their jokes elsewhere. K-pop and real hip-hop? Collaborating like it’s no big deal? Please.
But that’s exactly what happened.
In 2014, we had breakthroughs by artists from season three of “Show Me the Money,” followed by another hugely popular season of the Mnet hip-hop competition, as well as a series of chart-toppers coming out of Starship X, the newly established hip-hop label of Starship Entertainment. Not to mention numerous other talents that teamed up for unexpected but loved collaboration tracks. 2014 was the year of hip-hop (and sexy girl groups).
Here’s a look back at some of 2014’s best collaborations between hip-hop artists and K-pop stars. Some of them you’ve probably heard already, but we hope you’ll also discover new gems to add to your playlist.
