He became a featuring artist on Epik High's new album "Epik High Is Here," released on January 18. B.I sings both the chorus and rap in the song called "Acceptance Speech" and also participated in the composing and writing lyrics.
Two Epik High members responded to some questions regarding his participation.
Tablo said, "I couldn't help but to think of the weight of working with B.I, but in fact, throughout the process, B.I created a level of perfection that is impossible to give up (for the album)."
Tukutz commented, "Acceptance Speech" is the song he worked with Hanbin together. He also thinks that the melody and vocals would suit B.I the most. When he chose songs for the album, this was a "must release" song for him.

Put both hands up in the sky
The show goes on and on and on"
