A collaboration of artists with an international outlook from the J-HIPHOP, J-R&B, J-ROCK genres have started THE RAIDERS, a musical dream team.
THE RAIDERS is a project that was started by ZEEBRA’s UBG label-mate rapper KM-MARKIT. Artists like Rappagariya’s Sohmatoh label-mate MINESIN, R&B’s YUKALI, mixture scene group Yamaarashi’s Takeshi, westside female rapper D-ON, and many more participated in the project. The members are KM-MARKIT, YUKALI, YOUSUKE?from RUDE PLAYERZ), 8, MINESIN, D-ON, TAKESHI, OJ, SOUKI (from RUDE PLAYERZ and HAR-CO and more.)
The group has mixed a catchy, but danceable hit with lyrics that will stick for 10 generations as they kept US sounds like NY, South, Westside, R&B, Rock, and the like in mind. On July 27th, their debut work 1st Ryou A Omote 1 Coin Single “SUGAR c/w HIGHER,” will be released exclusively through TSUTAYA.
Maki Kurodou served as director of their music video for “SUGAR,” and with special filming equipment and the cooperation of NKL, the members appeared in the PV looking cool and the content is definitely worth watching.
Below is the tracklist for their single, information about their upcoming live performances, and their PV.
