DrunkenCamp.com was established in 2001 as the official U.S. English website for Korean hip-hop legend, Drunken Tiger. It serves as the official English hub of providing English speaking fans news about Drunken Tiger.
DrunkenCamp.com originally took the format of a regular fan website with photos, forums, lyrics, etc., however, over time, it seemed apparent that fans were more interested in knowing Drunken Tiger for who they really are (the up close, real, personal experience) versus the generic fan site that most artist usually have. Thus, DrunkenCamp.com was relaunched on September 21st, 2009 in a more journalistic format that documents Drunken Tiger from the first hand personal experience.
About Drunken Tiger:
Drunken Tiger is a Korean hip hop artist which debuted in 1999 and has since released eight albums. In an era of packaged pop and repetitious ballads, Drunken Tiger debuted and reformed the Korean music industry with their unique hip-hop sound and realistic lyrics. Although their music and resistance to conform to mainstream music’s conventions initially made them one of the more controversial figures in Korea’s conservative media, Drunken Tiger is now seen as one of the most influential and central pioneers of Korea’s mainstream hip-hop scene.
Currently, Drunken Tiger’s central figure is Tiger JK. Other members affiliated with Drunken Tiger are DJ Shine (left in 2005), DJ Jhig, Micki Eyes, and Roscoe Umali.
