Rapper in the Spotlight: Coogie

In this week’s Rapper In The Spotlight we are talking about another member of the well-known crew: Yelows Mob. We previously shared the careers of the members Sik-K and GroovyRoom, but this time we’re writing all about Coogie.

Mixtape and debut

Kim Jeong-hoon (aka. Coogie) debuted in 2018 under ATMseoul. Before his official debut he had already released the mixtape ‘PRodo’ in 2017. 

His official debut was in March 2018 with the single ‘HBK’ featuring Ted Park. Soon after, he dropped his first EP ‘Coding Black’ including his mixtape track ‘Movin’ & Movin’’ featuring Bla$e Kid.

During his debut year, Coogie released the four single albums  ‘Coogie’, ‘Coosebumps’, ‘Preview’ and ‘Wifey’ and the EPs ‘Coogie’ and ‘EMO #1’. In these releases he had very interesting and well-known features, including Changmo, Jay Park and SUPERBEE.

Check out the music video for the title tracks below .

Jeong-hoon started off 2019 with the release of the single album ‘Hooligans’ including a feature with Bill Stax. 

This release included the single ‘Title’, this track has a more personal and raw feel. Part of the lyrics go as: 

“(…) Everyone says i’m living a good life, i guess it looks like that
Everyone says i look like i have a lot of things, maybe y’all do
Every morning the wound bleeds, it dries even if i wipe it and wipe it
My whole closet is tainted, my washing machine won’t work
My mom caught me with cigarettes, but I’m sorry, I can’t quit
Because my head aches, because my illusions are too thick(…)”
