BIG Naughty, a South Korean rapper signed to Jay Park-owned music label H1GHR Music released his much-awaited 7 track album titled ‘Bucket List‘ on 25 February 2021. A music video for the title track ‘Joker‘ featuring JAMIE was also released on the same day.
The release of this album signifies BIG Naughty’s first solo album release under H1GHR Music. He was signed to the company after his appearance on season 8 of MNet’s hip-hop survival show Show Me The Money, in which he was apart of the BGM-v crew (comprised of judges Verbal Jint, GIRIBOY, BewhY, and millic).
‘Joker‘, the designated title track of ‘Bucket List‘, features BIG Naughty himself as well as JAMIE (who previously was a host on Arirang TV’s After School Club). The track mixes jazz and melodic rap to make up its sound – which is a signature style of BIG Naughty. The music video tells a linear story about a couple being kidnapped, with the man being forced to rob a bank in order to save his girlfriend.
The song really shines near the end, when BIG Naughty and Jamie sing over each other in wonderful collusion of vocal riffs and runs.
BIG Naughty also featured on an episode of Dingo FreeStyle, where he performed ‘Joker‘ as well as a few of his other songs.
