I sat down with Epik High’s fourth official/unofficial member MYK in downtown San Francisco for an exclusive interview with Soompi.com.

Topics covered: how MYK got started, became a part of Epik High and met Tablo, why he left for Korea, the best advice for young Asian MCs, his favorite Korean artists, his show with Jay Park, what it takes to be successful, Korean hip-hop developing a unique sound, the Asian-American hip-hop community, MYK spits a 16, talks about upcoming projects, plus some funny random questions at the end.
