We sat down with the artist behind “Trust Nobody”, the recently released Korean hip-hop song by rapper Crown J. Koreanized was invited to his home for an exclusive interview. As soon as we got in, it was easy to get a sense of who Crown J is – neat, tidy and very well organized. With posters of Steve Jobs, T.I, Tupac, Wu-Tang Clan and even Barack Obama hanging all over his house and home office, it was clear hip-hop is a big part of his life.
“I didn’t choose hip-hop, hip-hop chose me” ~ Crown J
