Emerging Producer/rapper Jiwhan Kim Shares New Song 'Kobe The Legend'

Jiwhan Kim is an 18-year-old hip hop/r&b producer/rapper. He has a distinctive rapping style alongside his unique production using heavy bass and beat drops, which became significant when one of his songs in his debut EP, “Medicare” went viral.

Since then, he’s grown significantly after dropping his first single “Last Truce”. He showcased his singing/production abilities, where he made the song from scratch by himself. Jiwhan is one of the best emerging artists and continues to prove himself with each release.

Today the 18-year-old rapper returns with his new single where he pay his respects to the late basketball legend Kobe Bryant the way he knows best: through music.

The singer released the song “Kobe The Legend” in honor of the late Lakers star, who died in a helicopter crash with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others.

Kobe said he always wanted to be remembered as a hard-working basketball player. So I used that signature heavy bass and beat drops, which led to my song “Medicare” became a huge success on Instagram Reels in the past. Overall, my new single properly sends Kobe off and remembers him as one of the greatest basketball players of all time (GOAT).” says Jiwhan

Take a listen to ‘Kobe The Legend’ below and share your thoughts.

Bryant and his daughter Gianna, pilot Ara Zobayan, John, Keri and Alyssa Altobelli, Christina Mauser and Sarah and Payton Chester all died in a helicopter crash on the morning of Jan. 26.

During his 20-year Hall of Fame career with the Lakers, Bryant won five titles, was an 18-time All-Star and the 2007-08 MVP. On a long list of great Lakers, from Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor and Jerry West to Kareem-Abdul Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal and LeBron James, Bryant is one of the most beloved and accomplished figures in the franchise’s history.

His death was mourned in Los Angeles and in the greater basketball community both in the United States and around the world.

BOSSIP’s Sr. Content Director Janeé Bolden spoke with “Dear White People” stars Logan Browning (Samantha White) and John Patrick Amedori (Gabe Mitchell) about Vol. 4 being a musical season and their reaction when they first found out. Needless to say, the actors were happy about the news.

“We’ve always talked about a musical episode and how fun it would be so when they decided to do a whole season what was I going to say, ‘No’? ” Amedori recalled to BOSSIP. “We were given the opportunity to be in a musical. Come on, let’s do it. ”

When asked about his favorite song to perform this season he didn’t hesitate to answer with N’Sync’s hit breakup jam: “Bye, Bye Bye.”

“Absolutely ‘Bye, Bye, Bye’!’ Amedori’s co-star Logan Browning chimed in.

“That was also really good too because, Logan and I the way we work together, from the previous recording to the day of shooting we kind of choreographed, well our choreography within the fight, and let us do the scene as a real fight with how we felt, it just felt really good it kind of came together, that’s definitely a highlight for me,” Amedori told BOSSIP.

For folks who aren’t fans of the show, Browning and Amedori both play film students/filmmakers and much of Vol. 4 revolves around their projects and what they decide to keep and leave out. We had to ask if there were things from the actual show that they were sad to see cut from previous seasons.

“I definitely have things that didn’t make it, but,” Browning paused before telling BOSSIP. ” No that would be a spoiler. There is something — there are things.”

“In general, at least I know joke-wise, I know that nobody was safe ever and I really enjoyed that aspect.” Amedori told BOSSIP. ” There was never a moment of ‘was that too much?’”

“I know, ” Logan interjected. “So we shot episode 8 of season two, part of one scene as a oner — where John Patrick and I and the camera operators were all moving in tandem, which we all thought was going to be one long cut. It ended up being cut up, which worked for the episode, but we were doing it so they wouldn’t have to cut but that’s very ambitious. That was one thing that was very hard to shoot.”

Sounds intense right? Well these two actors are very intense about their craft.

“We loved it!” Browning told BOSSIP.

“We couldn’t wait,” John Patrick Amedori added. “We spent an entire night going over it so by the time we brought the crew in to watch the rehearsal, we went full board we were 110% the entire time. We were ready to go. We were doing a performance.”

The show is named “Dear White People” after Browning’s character Sam’s controversial radio show. In the final season, Sam continues to catch hell from other Black students for her interracial relationship with Gabe. As “Dear White People,” primary white character we wanted to know what Gabe learned in the show’s four seasons.

“He’s a guy who steps in it along the way,” Amedori told BOSSIP. “He steps in it in a relationship with a girl that he’s madly in love with, he messes it up and she forgives him. To know that he means well. That’s her nature. It’s a good balance for them being in the relationship because when he puts his foot in his mouth he’s essentially putting both of their feet in her mouth.”

Amedori’s unintentional play on words draws laughter both from BOSSIP and Browning, who responds, “That is very John Patrick. I don’t know what made me go back and look at an interview we did at the Paley Center and your answers to this question were so sus, I was like cracking up.”

“I have weird metaphors that start turning in my brain,” Amedori explained to BOSSIP. “They make sense to me and I just hope that they make sense. Which is kind of how I exist as a person.”

Amedori finished his thoughts by saying he didn’t think Gabe would be the person he ends up being (this season also includes a look at most of the key characters 20 years in the future) without having known Sam.

Watch the full interview below:

We’ve really enjoyed watching this relationship blossom over four seasons and can’t wait for the rest of the world to see how Vol. 4 plays out.

New episodes of “Dear White People” arrived on Netflix this Wednesday, September 22!
