Block B‘s Zico turned out to be one strict judge during the preliminary round of the audition for Mnet‘s rapper competition show “Show Me the Money 4“. He never forgets to offer a handshake and praise their efforts once the personal audition is done. Many have wondered, however, about why he kept asking the contestants which company or group they are affiliated with right after they failed to pass.

An online community brought back a past interview that the Block B leader participated in back in 2011, where he answered a question on what he would do if they were given 10 minutes (of air time). He replied, “During those 10 minutes, I just want to take three minutes and give the remaining to the other rookie groups. I think three minutes is enough for us. It’s because there also other groups who are in the same situation as we are in..”

The then rookie knew how hard it is to have your name out on a broadcast especially as a rookie group, and so he made sure that the rappers who took the time to audition at least got their name out.

Meanwhile, “Show Me The Money 4” airs every Saturday at 11 p.m. on Mnet.
