A Brief Look at Gil Me and e.via

Battle of the rappers: Gil Me v. E.via (Earcandy Express)

Arie Jai looks at two female Korean rappers – e.via and Gil Me. She points out the distinction between e.via/Gil Me and the “rappers” of idol groups who merely “chant-talk.” I would expand this criticism to their male counterparts. Anyways, the lack of credibility and attention that female rappers have to put up with is not simply a Korean issue. It’s nice to see an attempt to highlight them in any market.
