In this week’s rapper in the spotlight, we are diving into the career of a rapper that deserves more recognition, let’s talk about OLNL.
Lee Je-won (aka. OLNL) debuted under the agency Stoneship in 2017 with the extended play ‘Apollo’ with the lead single ‘OYEAH’.
He followed this release with the single ‘Foreign Student’, a song where he expresses personal thoughts and experiences, part of the lyrics go as follows:
“(…)Yeah, sometimes these kinds of thoughts come up
That’s the extent of my worries, because I hate being alone
I really don’t feel like being sent home
I feel like I’m working to realize a dream that isn’t mine
It’s like I’m in a plane
I fly over the clouds and sea
My life as an exchange student (…)”
Lyrics by: House of the Dragonfly
‘Juiceoveralcohol’ was his next release featuring Acacy, Khundi Panda and Ohiorabbit.
These two singles were included in his first album ‘All Available’.
