Show review by: Mut Asheru
Sooooo, there’s a Korean hip-hop artist on the scene that you need to catch if he rolls your way. His name is BewhY and he’s more than capable of rocking a 2 hour set all by his lonesome, which he did with flare and supreme showmanship at the Gas Monkey Live in Dallas, TX tonight brought to us courtesy of SubKulture Entertainment.
BewhY is currently supporting his latest album “The Blind Star” on his first American tour. His style is totally engaging as he moves back and forth in syncopated fashion; sometimes looking like he’s searching for lyrics that he may have dropped on the ground. He’s up, then he’s down. He’s bouncing and then rocking…all the time moving the crowd on the left and the right.
BewhY, true to hip-hop fashion, expressed his thoughts in between sets about where he and his music is now. He shared how he lost sight of himself at one point and how through his faith he was brought back around to seek the important things in life which are unseen. Then he launched into “9ucci Bank” (Gucci Bank). The beat on this one gets me every time.
Not going to spoil the show for the cities he has left to hit but I will say this…all the songs you love…you will hear. And if you shout loud enough, you may hear them twice. It’s evident that the more energy he receives from the crowd the more he wants to give, and give and give some more. Very refreshing.
Oh, and there was an additional treat tonight by the name of Justin Park. Nice voice on him. Looking forward to learning more about this artist whose butter R&B vocals will make you a believer and a convert all in one go. (*ladies, heads up…Mr. Park is eye candy fo sho*)
The true test as to whether this was a good show is to ask oneself if they would catch the artist again. My answer? Yes, I would. Might even fly to Korea to do so.
