[news] 'Rookie Award' Supreme Team, "First hip hop group to win, such an honor"


Korean hip hop duo Supreme Team, a group that was helped created from Dynamic Duo, expressed their feelings from winning the best male rookie award from MAMA, which was held this past 21st.

Supreme Team's management company, Amoeba Culture said, "This past MAMA had a lot of meaning and they had fun. From 2002 starting with Blackbeat which led to DBSK, SS501, Super Junior, idol groups have taken over the rookie awards, it is the first time such an award was given to a hip hop group."

With idols groups having always taken over the music scene, Supreme Team had similar words to say like their company. "Having received so much love the past year, we feel very happy. It is such an honor to be given the rookie award."

Their management company ended with, "I wish this award gives the chance for more new singers to show their talent. Supreme Team is a joint effort of creation from both Dynamic Duo and MBLAQ's producer, Rain. Even with them both being busy with foreign activities and military, the two are still involved as producers."

Supreme Team is a duo consisting of Simon D (Simon Dominic) and E-Sens and has 7~8 years experience in the Korean underground hip hop scene. Since before their debut, they have received support from Dynamic Duo which has led to a lot of interest.

Simon D's quickfire, provoking rap and crooked beats that make you feel drunk is being regarded as music that is the very definition of trendy hip-hop.
