Mnet‘s Show Me The Money 777 has confirmed six producers will join the new season, all well-known names in rap and music production, and some familiar faces to fans of the rap survival show.
Heading team SMTM7, Gray is a rapper and producer known for hit collaborations with Jay Park. He’s no stranger to producing or Show Me The Money, since he appeared as a judge and producer in season 5, mentoring BewhY, another confirmed producer for the 7th season.
BewhY shot to fame thanks to Show Me The Money 5, when he took out the grand prize in a team with Gray and Simon Dominic. He has since released two albums and toured in the US.
Deepflow is the head of hip hop label Vismajor Company (VMC) and a skilled rapper and producer, with hit albums since 2011. He won the award for Musician of the Year at the 2016 Korean Music Awards.
Joining Deepflow in team VMC will be Show Me the Money 6 runner-up Nucksal, who is trying his hand at producing for the first time but has been active in the underground hip hop scene for years and did some pretty epic collaborations on the rap show.
Swings needs little introduction as one of the most well-known and controversial rappers in the South Korean hip hop scene. He’s producing under his own label, Just Music Entertainment, thanks to his popularity from Show Me The Money‘s second season, where he introduced the “diss track” to the game.
Giriboy is joining Swings in team Just Music, since he signed under Swings in 2011. He appeared on Show Me The Money 3 in 2014 and later displayed his talent for composing when he collaborated with contestants on No Mercy in 2015, (who later formed Monsta X) with established artists Soyou and Mad Clown.
With such huge names in rap and such differing musical styles, there’s huge anticipation for season 7’s premiere in September!
Nucksal and BewhY are gon' be judging? yaaaayy!!!
