When we say the words “Hallyu” or “Korean music”, most people will think K-Pop first. However, K-Hip Hop is going really strong worldwide, and especially in London where fans were recently blessed with a Rockbottom Crew show.
Rockbottom Crew consists of Don’t Call Me A Dog, Kidoh, Type-C, Hashmate, Supreme Boi and DNH’s Marvel J. Though fans were a bit disappointed that I11evn could not make it due to illness, but Marvel J stepped in to perform.
KAvenyou caught up with the boys backstage for an insightful chat, before their first London show, about their music, girls and London.
KAvenyou – First things first, *Don’t call me a dog* can you please explain why do you call yourself Don’t Call Me A Dog?
Don’t Call Me A DOG (DCMAD) – My friends used to call me a dog when I was drunk and I didn’t like that the fact that they did so that is how the name came around.
KAvenyou – What is on the cards for Rockbottom? Do you guys plan to make a group album?

The interaction with the fans was amazing with Type-C coming off stage to dance with lucky fans. Kidoh explained how this time round his London trip has started off well since last time he was ‘locked in the hotel’.
Supreme Boi showed his love for the British grime scene when he rapped to the beat of Skepta’s song ‘Nah that’s not me’.
