Swizzy always has his eye on the next big thing. Recently, the mogul ventured to South Korea and partnered with O & Media to help bring K-Pop artists to the states and vice versa. He spoke at a press conference in SK on his new project. (props Big Homie)
“I found that Korean Pop Music is a new expression and the world is open to new things. And I think that right now K-Pop in Korea is leading in that area. I would love to be that one to introduce it to the West,” said Swizz. “The biggest thing about K-Pop is how much its elevated to the next level. Geniuses like Kanye West and others that are smart enough to work with K-Pop groups understand that music is universal. I believe in leadership and setting the pace. I like to be the first.
Swizzy also bigged up Korean acts Kara, 2ne1, BOA and think they have bright futures globally. Other big K-Pop girl groups like Wonder Girls and Girls Generation have already began crossing over to the states.
Previously, Kanye West worked with K-Pop group/boyband, JYJ… watch the music video after the jump…

Meanwhile, my Korean-American homies from Queens drop sh*t like this…
With his debut album Fake It Til You Naked getting bedrooms wetter than Netherlands beyond the five boroughs, Queens-bred rapper, and all-around weirdo, Rekstizzy unveils a mind-enticing visual for his single “Drunk Dial.” Offering a twisted vision taken straight out of Rek’s psyche, the video attempts to capture an evening of drunken escapade, which involves an adult toyshop, karaoke room, and a dusty motel bedroom. Followed by a never-before-done representation of Flushing, Queen’s symbolic locale in the most outlandish fashion imaginable, the music video stands as a testament to the rapper’s perversity, realistic outlook, and rawness.
