Jang Moon Bok – Hip Hop President (힙통령)


I thought I was gonna be a super star back then
But then I became the laughingstock
The whole world pointed its finger at me
So I was trapped in this empty room
And I let it all out
I was a middle school student
Who just liked to rap
I was too young
So I couldn’t understand the situation
Wherever I went
Felt like I was walking in a desert
Just a funny guy who got disqualified on TV
So I lived, feeling deprived
Maybe I was too innocent and became a laughingstock
But I just endured with a smile
I couldn’t do anything for a few years
I just stayed silent and waited
But a few cheered for me and had hopes for me
I don’t like not being able to say anything anymore
I’m not just a funny guy
This is how I really feel

Ring ring, my phone rings
I hear people cursing at me
check check, kids tease me
Making my mom cry
Angry and upset, every single day
with a trembling voice
I know, more than anyone else
That I lack a lot, even if you don’t say it
But I still dream
I still breathe
So I can’t let go of the mic check

no top class I’m just the korean
The alien rap I did six years ago
Though I don’t know what that was for
Look carefully right now
I’m still rapping today
Can you hear me?
Friends ask, are you really doing this?
Even though I was cursed out so much
This is what I wanted
so I tried every day, all night
So I can leave home
so all the sharp arrows pointed at me
Will all leave me
So when I stood on stage again
What came to me was fear
But this love and passion
Kept me going
So today, I have endured
Now even if someone bolcks me
I still go on my way, even if I fail
Breaking down those silent times
Leaving the life of being funny
Let’s go to El Dorado

Ring ring, my phone rings
I hear people cursing at me
check check, kids tease me
Making my mom cry
Angry and upset, every single day
with a trembling voice
I know, more than anyone else
That I lack a lot, even if you don’t say it
But I still dream
I still breathe
So I can’t let go of the mic check

Jang Moon Bok, my other name is Hip Hop President
Everyone laughed at me
But I smile and brush it off
Looking for things I have to do
Even though I got cursed out so much
I still look for music

Jang Moon Bok, my other name is Hip Hop President
Some may curse at me
But if you get to know me, I’m quite alright
I’m going on the path I must go on
Whatever the world may say
I’m gonna keep my swag

They say I have no skill
They ignore me, embarrass me
But that’s alright
I just couldn’t stand my mother’s tears
I can’t be a bad son
So I chose to sing
When some received love and walked on flower paths
I rolled through the muddy floor
They said I’d never win over this
But I won’t give up easily, I will overcome
Till the flowers bloom
