Rapper BewhY attended the December 5 recording of SBS powerFM's 'Cultwo Show' and talked about the rep hip hop artists have in the public's eye.

He said, "I don't drink or smoke." DJ Jung Chan Woo said, "I thought hip hop would be rough, but it turns out it's not."  BewhY continued, "There's also a misunderstanding that hip hop is equal to dissing. It's a shame that it's being improperly portrayed through TV and media. [Dissing] is a sub-genre of rap.

"I feel like these days, youths dream in the hopes of making money.  It's a shame when I see them running forward in hopes of getting rewards rather than focusing on the purpose of what they do. There needs to be love for the work and craftsmanship. If you go looking at something else, you might waver."

This is because dissing creates drama and that's what the show producers are looking for. That made the public misunderstand hip hop.

Didn't it used to be called hip hop? Why doesn't he just label himself as hip hop to get away from the negative connotation of rap? Or is he too afraid "rappers" would diss him?

Hip Hop is just a type of music. I some are diss some are not. I agree that I don't understand why people think Hip Hop is bad because all it does is diss. I'm not a fan of Bewhy he act so I don't know cocky seem rude when accepting award from award ceremony like inappropriate should I say. That's my own opinion.

Finally someone that knows...I think its just stereotyped bc the general public of s.k don't research/or are aware about the history of hiphop. All these s.k rap shows (smtm, uprs, etc) focus on dissing a lot, and attitude. Like i see the way they judge rappers based on how vicious or strong they come off...Rap is Rhythm And Poetry, it can be emotional, soft just as it can be strong and hype.Also dissing = most drama/news coverage. Alcoholism and smoking is closely related to almost ever genre of music but i don't get why when its tied to rap its considered bad. ie; pop, country, etc.

I think music comes from having a lot of experiences and to create music around those experiences tends to give the music substance, I think that's why many artists sometimes turn to depressants or stimulants (drugs or alcohol) to fuel their creativity. I mean, the Beatles are a strong example, right? Lol. I respect bewhy for understanding this though. That's what kind of turns me away from some khiphop, the fact that some artists seem to think it's all about hot women and fucking and dissing others or telling people how great they are- which is fine occasionally but tiring after a while. That's why I like Chance The Rapper, Childish Gambino, Kid Cudi. But I think the artists are beginning to evolve so I hope khiphop gets even better.

same, u should check out epik high, their lyrics n stuff is really good.

Jcole and Gambino are blessings to the rap community. I feel like Drake is falling down in terms of showing that musical progress but Gambino and Jcole are doing great at showing that HipHop isn't all about being vain and up their own asses. It's nice to see someone giving an actual reality check through music.

I'll do that! I've heard a couple songs that I liked, I just haven't had the chance to check them out

i think everyone but old generation adults knows diss rapping is a sub genre of rap.  its just that the diss ALWAYS gets the most people standing up because it can be so ruthless and confrontational.  EVERY contestant and judge goes crazy when rappers do diss battles on the shows.  its basically the most anticipated aspect of rapping on SMTM and UR, which is why its always talked about.  Also most people with common sense know most rappers in Korea won't be like most American rappers because obviously the punishments for drugs in Korea are extremely harsh compared to America.  even then it might be correct to say korean rappers are more likely to be doing drugs than the rest of the korean professions.Hip Hop IS rough.  there isn't a show that can be more embarrassing for people than the rap shows.  see Kid Kool, i felt so bad for her.  Jiyoon almost became the laughing stock of rap from one intro.  diss raps can hit really hard and cruel.  and in America at least, there isn't a profession full of more thugs, fights, and gangbanging than rapping.  if u can't handle yourself you're probably going to get dissed a lot.

iisstf28 thefabcat92 Monday, December 5, 2016

thefabcat92 iisstf28 Monday, December 5, 2016

realllyyyy???? shame on meee

Crazy_Dog Monday, December 5, 2016

agree to disagree some hits came to ppl when they where drunk or high. i do agree that dissing is a sub genre im pretty sure they all know one another in the hip hop scene despite them not mentioning anything

Blue82 Monday, December 5, 2016

He is a really good performer so I'm glad he's setting an example. You don't have to put down other rappers or entertainers to produce good music. You also don't have to get high, drunk and crazy 24/7 to achieve success.

kpopisbaebae Blue82 Monday, December 5, 2016

you cant achieve success if you are high, drunk and crazy 24/7 tho

Blue82 kpopisbaebae Monday, December 5, 2016

The entire point is that people think that is the only way to be a successful hiphop artist and it's not. Those types of artists end up broke more often than not. Look at all the American hiphop artists and rappers who made millions but blew it being irresponsible on drugs and flashy things. Then they have a sob story about how hard it is being broke when they did it to themselves. There are exceptions and also artists that hit that low point and come back from it but for every success there are hundreds that never bounce back from the downward spiral. The smartest thing an artist does is remember that fame is fleeting and fans can be fickle. Invest your money, don't get a drug or alcohol habit that will drain your bank account, and make sure you are always looking towards the future so you don't end up bankrupt and on some show begging for help.

you're a moron. tell that to Jimmy Hendricks. tell that to the Beatles. tell that to 3/4's of popular rappers in America. there are so many examples of successful musicians who have been lifelong substance abusers.

i think its due to depression and escapism (ppl go thru traumatic shit that u don't know about). I was an alcoholic that only found happiness when i was hazy. Drugs make u feel good. But its all temporary. Its hard to hav ur head on ur shoulders. Rappers/musicians tend to be very emotional people. thats why they write music, to express themselves. Also i think its the stigma of greed, the bigger the better type of mindset, and social expectations of hollywood life.

kpopisbaebae Blue82 Monday, December 5, 2016

o lord.i just pointed out the 24/7 part. no need for the long paragraph. lol

smokeee Blue82 Monday, December 5, 2016

its not really drugs that drains their bank account, its their lifestyles that do. its the same problem with many pro athletes who go broke after making tens of millions. i'm sure i'll be called racist for this but its a issue with african americans in particular. whether they're influenced by athletes and rappers when they're young, or whatever reason they love to spend money on hundreds of sneakers, jewelry, cars, etc. and to pretend its not a race related issue is disingenuous for the sake of political correctness, since the regularity of which it happens to once rich african americans far dwarfs any other race blowing all of their money on strippers and jewelry. lets be real most white or azn guys aren't making it 'rain at strip clubs'. look up Antoine Walker who blew all of his money after he had over a $100million dollar nba contract. oh and the other issue they have is baby mama's, they spend a fortune paying child support for 8 different mothers. see shawn kemp. its culture related more than anything IMO since young african americans tend to idolize rappers and athletes.

as for drugs and i'm not trying to promote them, but they can enhance how u hear music. weed for example enhances the sound, it zones u into it, and it goes well with music, movies, or games. even eating lol....LSD aka acid is another one that changes how u interpret everything so music is very different than when you're sober. i think those are the 2 main drugs musicians are notorious for, and they definitely can be beneficial for those who make music. problem is most end up abusers. its very easy to go from enjoying something to addictive abuse since its very subtle.

Johbear Blue82 Tuesday, December 6, 2016

The problem these rappers have is that alot of them come of the streets nor knowing alot about there legal rights and end up getting hoodwinked and put in contracts were they get no money. It's really sad :(
