Epik High Discuss "Sad Fun" Hip Hop & K-Pop at SXSW 2015

FUSE TV - Epik High Discuss "Sad Fun" Hip Hop & K-Pop at SXSW 2015

It's been six years since Epik High graced U.S. shores with their wild live performances, and their absence has been felt. The trio, made up of MCs Tablo and Mithra Jin alongside DJ Tukutz, hold the title of biggest Korean hip hop act in the world, and they've earned it. Performing and making music on their own terms for more than a decade, Epik High are bigger now than ever before.

We sat down with the group at SXSW 2015 following their fiery set at the third annual K-Pop Night Out. The following answers come from Tablo, the de facto leader and founding member of the group.
