On March 30, Rapper Basick sat down with StarNews for an exclusive interview where he recalled his school days.


"I wasn't all that bad when it came to studying in school. During junior school, I ranked fifth place nationwide," the rapper reminisced. After just one semester of junior high, Basick left Korea.


Basick and his family moved to the United States as his father was working as an exchange professor.  Two years later, his parents returned to Korea whereas the rapper stayed in the States to continue his studies finishing up junior high, high school and eventually college.


Basick explained, "Like any other student, I was solely focused on school work and gradually became interested in rap/hip-hop music.  I remember studying really hard to excel in my SATs."


He continued, "Although I really wished to get into an Ivy League school, I didn't make it in the end," expressing his regret.


"I stayed in San Diego and Portland during my school days and attended Babson College in Boston.  While attending college, my passion for rap music grew stronger and I decided to perform in Korea."

 

Basick commented how his parents wanted him to have a normal lifestyle but he chased after his music dreams instead. "After getting married and settling down I returned to the music industry quitting my job after a year."


Meanwhile, rapper Basick demonstrated his talented rapping skills by winning Mnet's 'Show Me The Money 4' in 2015. Following this, he launched his first single in 2017 titled "My Wave" and collaborated with Verbal Jint for "Pinocchio" released on March 22.
