YG’s new sub-unit “MOBB” has finally debuted!
After Bobby’s solo debut on the 7th of September 2016 KST with “Holup!“ and Mino’s solo debut on the 8th of September 2016 KST with “Body“, the boys debuted as a new YG Entertainment unit on the 9th of September 2016 KST with a double digital single and two music videos. The sub-unit MOBB, MinoxBobby, went all out with the songs “Hit Me” and “Full House” featuring the YG vibe and some of the agency’s best composers and arrangers.
“Hit Me” features composer and writer Kush, who recently appeared on the rap survival show “Show Me The Money 5” and won second place. The song is a laid back and chill hip hop track written by both Bobby and Mino. The chorus is sung by both Mino and Bobby and I have to say, it’s not a bad thing to hear them sing cause they are quite good ~.~ The music video showcases the boys getting bored at home and deciding to go out to a club to have fun. It features a cameo of Hilite Records rapper, G2 and YG Entertainment rapper, One.
Check out the music video for “Hit Me” below:
“Full House” is a hard hitting party hip hop track that will make you want to move and jump around as the song goes on. The chorus is really really good, although it’s autotuned. I like it a lot, it gives a totally different vibe than the first song. The music video showcases the boys surrounded by girls and showing the boys rapping. The MV’s aesthetics are really nice to watch and it goes hard with all the lights flashing and the different colors popping out of nowhere. It also features a cameo of 2NE1‘s leader and rapper, CL. If I had to chose between the two songs, this one would be my favorite eventhough I really like both 😉
Check out the music video for “Full House” below:
What do you think of the debut of MOBB? Do you like it? Which song is your favorite?
