Korean-American rapper Dumbfoundead is known for being quite outspoken when it comes to social issues, and his latest comment is aimed at Korean hip hop and its use of African culture.
In a new tweet on his official Twitter account, Dumbfoundead crticised K-pop and Korean hip-hop's use of African culture, writing how those involved in both genres on music embrace the culture and yet are not aware of the related social issues and movements, such as Black Lives Matter.
For those who are unaware, Black Lives Matter is an African-American activist movement aimed at campaigning against racism and violence against African-American people.
Dumbfoundead's tweet drew in a big response, garnering over 15,000 likes and 7,000 re-tweets, as well as various discussions between fans.
This isn't the first time that Dumbfoundead spoke up about a social issue. Last year, the rapper released his "Safe" MV, which gained widespread attention for shining a spotlight on the under-representation of people of colour in Hollywood due to the superimposition of his face onto the faces of various actors from famous movie scenes.
