Make room for a beautiful blend of reggae, hip hop and jazz in our playlist! It's truly an honor to have MFBTY in Music to Dali & Jay-Z Lovers.
Words cannot describe the amount of respect and admiration I have for these people.
Formed by three legends of Korean hip hop - rapper Bizzy along with the dopest couple ever, Tiger JK and Yoon Mirae, - MFBTY's music is all about breaking barriers, embracing who you are and using music as both an escape from the world and a tool to make it better.
Each one of the group's members has enough history and talent to make me want to write a full article - but together they are the definition of badass. Their chemistry is insane, their creativity is out of this world.
However, as explosive as they are on stage, they still know how to make calm, "feel good" music like no other - no wonder their music label is called "Feel Ghood".
"Love and peace" is actually a revamped version of "심의에 안 걸리는 사랑노래", a reggae ballad from Tiger's 2005 album "1945 Liberation", released under the name of the duo he was a part of, Drunken Tiger.
Ten years later, the track ended up on MFBTY's second album, this time with the collaboration of Jeon Inkwon of Korean folk group Deulgookhwa.
Everything that was awesome in the 2005 version was kept, but the 2015 version is even breezier and good to listen.
Seriously, I live for the bass and guitars in this song, and when Mirae adds her beautiful voice over it, it's just beautiful. That moment alone justifies the need of bringing this track back.
There is something so beautiful about chill, soft tracks like this, coming from people who are also capable of making fierce music and performances so full of energy.
MFBTY's got the type of swag that only survivors can have (check their stories if you'd like). After all that they have been through in the past, staying true to themselves and their identity might as well have been the only thing that brought them "love and peace", and as a fan, I am truly grateful for the music and energy they put in the world, inspiring so many people.

About the curator: Ana Clara Ribeiro
Music, art and entertainment have always played a big role in the life of Ana Clara Ribeiro. She grew up in Gurupi (an inland city in Tocantins, the youngest State of Brazil), listening to all kinds of music, reading, writing, watching stuff and connecting them to her personal beliefs and other ideas she read about.
As she became a lawyer and a writer, all the topics to which she is constantly exposed continued to give her insights about life, people and the universe, through the lenses of art.
Nowadays, when she isn’t analyzing lawsuits or producing content about Law, Marketing, Business or Music, she is certainly doing something related to her various personal and professional projects, always to the sound of a playlist as eclectic as her life.
