4-member hip hop group M.I.B successfully completed their very first independent Showcase. The boys kicked off their first album promotions by performing at MuseLive in Olympic Hall on the 20th. They performed five songs total- each performing their individual spin off tracks, '5Zic - Beautiful Day', 'Cream - Do U Like Me', 'SIMS - Hands Up', and 'Kang Nam - Say My Name. Additionally, the four of them together performed their debut song "G.D.M" from their first album [Most Incredible Busters]. The four members 5Zic, Cream, SIMS, & Kang Nam are housed under Korea's top hip hop agency Jungle Entertainment, alongside artists such as Yoon Mirae (Tasha), Drunken Tiger (Tiger JK), and Leessang. The boys have been the first Korean artists to attempt 'spin-off promotions', individually promoting their spin off tracks of their title song "G.D.M". They did this in order to distinguish themselves from other artists and to show what each member has to offer. They released the tracks one at a time, 2-3 days apart and showed the public how experienced and talented they were, despite their young age. In no way do these boys seem like rookies, as they also possess enough talent and skill to write, compose and produce their own first album. At the press conference that was held after the showcase, M.I.B remarked, "There are a lot of talented artists out there but our goal is to not only be #1 in the nation, but to be the top artist in all of Asia. We want to work hard so that we'll one day become role models for other junior artists that debut after us. We're not an idol group, and we want to prove this simply with our skill and expertise. We want to show you that we know how to have a good time on stage." Labelmates Tiger JK, Leessang's Gary as well as Bizzy also attended the event, making this all the more meaningful for M.I.B. In regards to their seniors' continuing love and support, they expressed their pride and respect by remarking, "Jungle Entertainment's artists are known for producing only full-length albums. We plan on following that path, and that's why our first is also full-length." M.I.B's debut album will be released on the 25th and they will officially begin their promotions as one unit with "G.D.M". The boys will without a doubt set a new par in the Korean hip hop industry with their self-produced album, 'Most Incredible Busters'. [gallery]
