There's a stereotypical image of rappers in Korea (and perhaps worldwide), that they're very honest and express themselves freely. However, in the case of the young rapper Loco, he's the complete opposite. He puts thought behind each and every word that comes out of his mouth, and frankly, is uncomfortable talking candidly for interviews and such.
This is actually the very reason he became a rapper. Because he felt he was so lacking in organizing and expressing his thoughts, he started taking the time to perfect them and write them down before rapping them freely on stage.
He would perform for festivals for his school at Hongik University, but it wasn't really taking him anywhere. That's when he saw a poster for the rapping competition show "Show Me The Money". He entered. Ultimately, he won.
He decided on the name "Loco", which means "crazy", because though he's careful in every other situation, on stage, that's when he can let go and convey all his honest thoughts to people.
Loco is signed under AOMG, a label headed by rapper/singer Jay Park. Loco has established himself as a true hip hop artist. He has gone from contestant on the show Show Me the Money to judge and producer on it. He's definitely one of the most notable and promising hip hop artists in his generation.
