On the recent episode of ‘Unpretty Rapstar 2‘, rapper Heize lost to singer Hyorin by a couple dozen votes. Since it was so close it wouldn’t be crazy to speculate on whether the choice of guest artists were the difference, as Heize had Chanyeol and Hyorin had Basick.
See, besides generally running around like a madman and screaming random stuff, apparently one poor soul took the time to figure out what the fuck he was even saying. I think most people had trouble deciphering his lyrics, and in light of seeing his lyrics, maybe that was for the better?
“Peekaboo, why a pretty boy on ‘Unpretty Rapstar’?
I’m radio, I earn money by my voice, not face,
I’m EXO, I represent Korea, I grow up with love,
I work hard and make money.
My popularity is above Mnet,
I know my position exactly,
Girls yearn for me,
You’ll respect me after listening to this rap.
Sorry, Lee Soo Man president-nim,
Let me do some hip-hop today,
Motherfucker, I’ll also do some curse,
Maybe the fans will go to Hong Kong after this rap.
My bank account is like a cemetery, there are more and more 0s,
Tomorrow, I’m again going to the airport to earn money,
I earn money, earn money, much more than other idols.”
Oh … nooo.
From now on, whenever you want to use the word ‘motherfucker’, you have to say “let me do some hip-hop today” before. It’s law.
Also, during the episode it appeared Hyorin was throwing shade at Chanyeol’s ability…
On the show, it seemed like she said, “In many idol groups, the rapper is the most good-looking ones, because they can’t sing. This is offensive to real rappers.” Combined with the fact that EXO’s rapper Chanyeol was on the episode, it led the fans to guess that this comment was targeting him.
…but she claimed it was evil editing.
However, Hyorin posted on her Instagram on November 7, saying “No, it’s not true at all. I’ve been set up… Malicious editing… I’m so sad.” She added, “I did not say this against EXO’s Chanyeol at all… He showed an amazing stage, and I was glad to have this experience with him… Please don’t misunderstand me, sob.”
Regardless, I doubt anybody but EXO fans were gonna blame her for speaking out.
