The Two Faces of Dok2

Dok2 – Best Time (In Our Life)

I know this song is over a year old but I just have to write about it. I’ve been really into Korean Hip-Hop for the last year or so. I guess I kind of slipped out of the mainstream the day I found Dynamic Duo and have since been working my way further into the underground Hip-Hop scene. Lately I’ve been hooked on the 1llionaire vlogs. I’d never paid much attention to Dok2, The Quiett or Beenzino but I have no idea why I hadn’t heard much about them until now. The amount of talent that flows between these three amazing artists is insane.

On to the song. When I first heard this song I was truly shocked. I’d heard so much more of Dok2’s recent material that I’d overlooked his ability to produce such music. This song, Best Time (In Our Life) from Dok2’s album Love & Life, The Album presents such a different side to him, one I had never seen before. This made me explore him more as a hip-hop artist and immediately made me change the way I saw him.

The song is simply a song about a girl. A slow beautiful rap song about a girl he likes and wants to keep his. It feels so genuine that I can’t help but want such affection for myself, that’s how emotionally convincing it is. I’d missed this kind of music. It’s so hard to find rap songs that communicate this amount of affection, swoon-factor and talent at the same time. And talented he is. I’ll definitely keep an eye out for him and the rest of the 1llionaire boys. If you haven’t checked them out before, well watch the video and see for yourself. Love & Life, The Album can be found here on iTunes.

    I totally agree. I’m new to the whole Korean music scene, but I think that Dok2 is a huge talent. It’s nice to hear something sweet coming from a rapper.

    Dok2 is an amazing artist. I found out about him last year after watching Jay Park’s video for ‘Know Your Name’ and have been hooked on his music ever since. After listening to Dok2, I found other Korean Hip-Hop artists that share his passion for music. That is very rare to find in today’s music.
