2014 has been all about the K-pop diss rap (how could we forget Kemy's "Park Bom" diss rap)! Now, VIXX’s Ravi has dropped what we presume to be a freestyle rap on soundcloud entitled “Diss Hater” and shouts out to “Bobby” at the beginning and end - but is it really a diss?
Assuming the diss rap is directed at iKON’s Bobby, it could be in response to Bobby’s lyrics in “YGGR” that make reference to VIXX and their “clock dance” in their “Eternity” music video. They go,
“You guys have a long way to go. Boy group rappers come on stage with a clock dance. If you're tone deaf, go practice."
But if you take a look at the lyrics in Ravi's response, it seems that he isn’t really attacking Bobby, instead he alludes to the fact that they are both the same!
See what you think of it…
"That's right I'm an idol
But you're also a f***in' idol
Others think it's the same, but this diss battle pretending to be different
You want to lash out because it's disgusting, right?
I admit that I'm the rapper of the boygroup with the clock dance
But I'm not tone deaf, you little boy
I left my house and hustle every night too
Yeah I'm envious, holding the 'Show Me' trophy at 20 years old
And a career chewing up melons
All of that still pre-debut
You say it like a habit, just hate on Bobby
But I don't give a f**k
I don't want to fight you
We're all the same, you, me, him, her, all idols
Is it real if you're good at rap and doodle with your pen
That's no no
We're different u know
Yeah it's easy to kill hip hop
But we're not the culprits, what i mean sh*t."
