It was only a matter of time until Korean rapper Keith Ape recruited some American talent for the remix of his international rap hit “It G Ma.” From South Korea to Atlanta, Harlem, and Los Angeles, the international mobbin’ gets real as Waka Flocka, Father, A$AP Ferg, and notorious Korean-American L.A. battle rapper Dumbfoundead join in on the buffoonery.
The Shomi Patwary-directed video for the remix channels the essence of the original clip but with an Illusive Media touch—featuring Keith Ape and his Underwater Squad running wild in the United States with some of the nation’s biggest rappers. “It G Ma” translates to English as “Don’t Forget,” and let’s not forget that this Seoul rebel owes much of his success to Atlanta’s OG Maco, whose cadence and ad-libs on his hit single “U Guessed It” are emulated on Keith’s track.
For those who are still mad about the cultural appropriation, don’t bother boycotting the record, as Maco took to Twitter to let everyone know he receives royalties from it. Nicely played, Maco…keep droppin’ 📠.
Yall can stop dissing Keith Ape in my mentions. We get paid a percentage from "It G Ma". Listen to it as much as you can. Buy it even more.
