Fans of legendary hip-hop trio Epik High have been waiting to see the boys make a comeback for some time now, and “Born Hater” does not disappoint! It’s been about 2 years since their last studio album, and anticipation has been high, especially when the music video release was delayed a bit out of respect for the tragic incident at the recent 4Minute concert. The wait is finally over, however, so let’s take a look!
The song is tour de force of epic proportions, featuring some of the best rappers that Korea has to offer. The video starts off with Tablo, who appears from behind an opening vault door and is sitting in a very cramped space, on a toilet, no less. He is absolutely covered in cockroaches, (yuck) and desperately spraying to try to get them off. He even puts one near his mouth at one point (double yuck)! His rap packs quite a punch, and keep in mind this video is 19+ so there are quite a few f-bombs dropped.
The video continues in this same fashion, with each rapper being showcased in their own little space, the surroundings changing for each person. Rappers Verbal Jint, Beenzino, Team B’s B.I and Bobby, and even WINNER’s Mino all have their own feature, giving it their all and calling out the haters in their own style. If you’re a fan of Epik High or just a rap fan at all, you’ve got to check this out. This is the best of the best in action, for sure.
