Hip-hop artist Zion.T sat down for an exclusive 'Spot Interview' with 1theK.


Taking place inside Black Label's studio, singer Zion.T shared various moments in his life such as when he first encountered old school YG group 1TYM's "HOT" which sparked his interest in the hip-hop genre.  "I'm a fan of hip-hop and that all started after singing 'HOT' by 1TYM at karaoke which was a complete accident." Zion.T had inputted the wrong song at Karaoke and 1TYM's "Hot" came on, he decided to sing it and that was the spark for his love of hip-hop.


In regards to "The Song," "I think 'The Song' is first and foremost a gift.  But...I decided to keep it simple."  When asked who it was specifically dedicated to, Zion.T hesitated for a moment and replied "Everyone(?)."  


The singer made an honest statement saying, "I don't think my position in the charts right now is important. I want people to know the thoughts...music, and the work I had created."


You can listen to 1TYM's 2003 hit single "Hot" below.

    I can see that. When I first got into kpop, I confess it was difficult to get in to korean rap right away. I had to ease into it. First there was HOT, with Jang Woo Hyuk and Tony An's rap. But with 1tym, specifically "Nasty" is what did it for me. After that, Epik High, Big Bang's hits and Untouchables were easy to listen to.

    Zion T is a valuable asset in Korean music. He has a clear identity and authenticity. He will continue to get far.

    Hot has a superb intro and is still better than most songs released nowadays in Kpop. Would be great to have more songs like this released today
