Dynamic Duo’s 7th Album, “Lucky Numbers”


After writing the Side B for Seoulbeats on Dynamic Duo, I’ve definitely warmed up to Hip-hop and rapping after hating it at one point. I think that Korean Hip-hop styles appeal more to me because the rapping tends to be mellower (by nature of voice) and the Korean language flows really well. English is a rougher language, so rapping in English usually leaves me annoyed, not to mention that I can understand all the cursing—at least in Korean, I can’t understand it. Korean mainstream Hip-hop is also more melodic in general (which I like) whereas melodic hip-hop (with RnB flair, etc.) would be far less mainstream in English speaking countries. I’m not calling one or the other superior, I’m just stating that I prefer one style over the other due to musical aesthetics.

Basically, the point I was getting at is that Korean Hip-hop is a classier affair in musical delivery, and I’ve certainly started to like it a lot— especially after Dynamic Duo released this great album, Lucky Numbers.

I probably won’t write a review just because I feel severely under-qualified to do so. Hopefully someone better versed in the Hip-hop culture will do the album justice.
