Jive Monkey Playlist: 5/19/14

I was pretty excited and worried to hear that MC Mong would be making a comeback. Excited because he’s a talented artist but worried because I’m not sure how his scandal has affected his music.

There are many things I love about MC Mong. His songs always have a great beat, catchy melody and illuminated his lively personality. So I was ecstatic to see an article saying that he’s with the same management company as Girl’s Day and there were plans to release an album in late 2014. I missed the Mong.  There tend to be a lot of rappers who tend to rap about negative things but MC Mong’s music usually has a lot of lightness and heart as evidenced by the success of “죽도록사랑해 (Love You ‘Til I Die)”.

So there is a bit of concern how the scandal has changed him. In 2010, allegations that he was trying to dodge the mandatory military service came to light and it prompted officials to conduct an investigation. While he was cleared of intentionally pulling out teeth to be exempt from military service, he was found guilty of delaying his military enlistment. He’s served his punishment and following the scandal has laid low and suffered deep depression. Not sure how much of the public views him today or if time has healed some of those wounds but draft dodging is a big no-no. However, over the years, he’s also had many supporters eagerly waiting for him to make a comeback. He’s turned down offers and denied that he was ever going to make a comeback until I saw that article last week.

It made me want to go back and listen to all his albums again. The songs are so good that they’re timeless. Though I know he’s not the same person any more, I hope that we’ll get to hear some great new songs by him. Right now, there are only plans to release as he is still on the KBS and MBC’s blacklist so there aren’t major plans to promote via broadcast.  So looking forward to his next release, here’s “LUV D.N.A. (feat. Navi) from his last album in 2009, “Humanimal”.

A-Yo Love follow from my body is half yours
Love plants it, similar to you D.N.A
Luv Luv D.N.A, you’re a shining DIA

Whatever we do, we’re the same
Like we’re siblings from one set of parents
It’s like you’re me, like I’m you
Down to the smallest habits, the same
My brain in my head prompts me
Like being shocked by an electrical current
From a clear day, feel like I’ve been hit by a bolt
When I see you I still get excited
You still stimulate my hold body
Making my heart beat, small cell
Calling my life’s love, you
Love is precisely my D.N.A

Feel like pushing you
