Rapper and MC, BewhY, began his career as a contestant on South Korea’s most popular rap competition show, Show Me The Money in 2014. In 2015, BewhY returned to the show to dominate and take home the grand prize. Since then, BewhY has released a slurry of hard-hitting music and immediately began racking up award show recognition in 2016 for his undeniable gusto and performance abilities. By 2017, BewhY had released two albums: Time Travel and The Blind Star. BewhY has since solidified himself as an artist without boundaries when it comes to Korean Hip-Hop. This previously underground rapper and now mainstream solo superstar has become a household name for many passionate Korean music fans across the world. With BewhY's upcoming 2020 tour right around the corner, here are 4 BewhY live performances you need to watch:
4. Hidden Stage
BewhY's major explosion of popularity onto the scene was unprecedented at first, but when he came back onto the SMTM circuit and dominated the competition, the general public quickly saw the appeal of his sharp tongue and quick wit. His iconic song, "Forever" showed spitfire lyricism the crowd just couldn't get enough of.
3. Show Me The Money 5 Finale (Part 2)
Arguably, this video is the moment that changed BewhY's career forever. In order to win it all, he had to blow everyone out of the water with his final performance on SMTM5. Despite competitor C JAMM having Crush has a feature on his stage, BewhY knocked his on-stage performance of "Fake pt.2" out of the park alone.
2. MAMA 2016
BewhY has already established himself as a contender in modern K-Hip-Hop discourse. His performance alongside Yiruma and Prepix for 2016 MAMA proved his ability to perform outside of the reality show circuit. By showcasing a piano-remixed version of "Day Day", BewhY wowed fans with his quick-witted tact and wordplay.
1. SMTM8 Performance Medley
In an iconic return to SMTM in 2019, BewhY is able to explain exactly why he reigned triumphant during his season of the show. The zealous Hip-Hop fans in the crowd begin cheering for him before even being able to see him on stage. His incredible stage presence and ability to revitalize a large crowd through zealous performance is unmatched by many rappers in the industry.
