Thoughts on Gilme:

When people think of female rappers, Yoon Mi Rae immediately comes to mind. Other well-known female rappers that also pop up are CL of 2ne1, Miryo of Brown Eyed Girls, and LE of EXID. As a hip hop fan, it’s a bit upsetting to see how underrated Gilme is considering her talents; just like Yoon Mi Rae, she is gifted at singing and rapping. In certain songs, her rapping and husky tone has a lot of power (I’m not sure how to explain correctly; think of Iron from Show me the money and his angry raps).

I first noticed Gilme in her song  “Love is War”, which featured the fastest rapper in Korea, Outsider. In terms of skills, she did not lose to Outsider; in fact, I paid more attention to her than Outsider! She’s no E.via/Tyme but her speed is at a nice pace in that song, and she has her own style, which I really love.
