Tiger JK Rants on Twitter About Racist Comments
Last year one of my favorite rap albums — I’d say top 3– was Feel gHood Muzik by Drunken Tiger. In the month of October I was constantly playing it and if you happened to ride in the car with me you were subjected to whatever was my favorite song of the week off that double album although Hip Hop Hero (If I Wasn’t I Would Say I Am) has been in the number one position for the last two months.
Yesterday I was excited to find him on Twitter and writing most of his posts in English (although some are typed in Hangul ). This morning on my way to work I logged on to Twitter and saw Tiger JK was in pain. After a performance he brought his son Jordan up on stage –for those who don’t know Jordan is his son with his wife rapper extraordinaire/songstress Tasha aka Yoon Mi Rae. Tasha is half African American/half Korean. In the comments section of an article people made nasty comments about their son.
Tiger JK’s Tweets:

I wish I had advice to give him but I don’t. The best thing to do is to insulate from the ignorance that is out there is by surrounding oneself with positive people whose on your vibe. And the dumb azz racists who swipe out at a child online –that kind of stupidity doesn’t always stay under wraps. I’m sure they will soon be outed for the dregs of society that they are.
