South Korean hip hop trio Epik High have returned with their new studio album, Epik High is Here (Part 1).
For the ten-track record, the group enlisted a star-studded cast of collaborators, including former 2NE1 member CL, Block B’s Zico, K-R&B singer Heize, rapper Miso and more. The LP also features the first official music release from former iKON member BI, who left the group in 2019 amid controversy.
Epik High is Here (Part 1) dropped alongside videos for “Rosario” (featuring CL and Zico) and “Based on a True Story” (with Heize). The former, filmed in portrait mode, follows the artists as they explore a run-down motel. Meanwhile, the clip for “Based on a True Story” is a nostalgic look at the South Korean city of Seoul, utilizing a film reel filter.
Epik High is Here (Part 1) is the follow-up to their 2019 EP, Sleepless in __________. Watch their two new videos below.
