MC Sniper is certainly a throwback, and he was one of my favorite rappers back when I was just getting into Korean entertainment. MC Sniper released three albums from 2002-04, and he gained considerable mainstream attention for a while. However, he then released three albums in the last 10 years and I really haven’t seen him regain the mainstream appeal he once had.
Nevertheless, he remains one of the greats to me, because while he’ll often write about mainstream topics like love for tracks like “Gloomy Sunday“, he’s also never been afraid to rip on social issues or the government.
