Noisey brought on one of the most intriguing new rappers, Keith Ape, for the latest episode of Noisey Raps. Hailing from Seoul, South Korea, Keith has been on a rapid ascent since dropping his international hit “It G Ma” – a song that fuses Japanese, Korean, and English lyrics with quintessential Atlanta trap.
Noisey caught up with Keith and his Cohort Crew on their first U.S. tour, following the group from their first raucous SXSW shows to their main-stage festival debut with Skrillex. Along the way they witness a guerrilla Keith Ape music video shoot get broken up by the NYPD, hop in the studio with Keith as he records a new EP with Playboy Carti, and film the Korean rapper’s first music video in America featuring Waka Flocka Flame. Watch both videos below.
