Turning PSY into PNation

 HEY TO ALL MY HOPPERS OUT THERE!! It's been a very long time since I was last here. Got Married had a baby the full life experience, but ya'll didn't come here to read all about my life. You came here for the Hip Hop. 

I could go back and talk all about what's happening in the Hip hop world today, but honestly I just really want to talk about my favorite things to happen in a while.

That's right PNATION. The one and only PSY's record label! I was so excited when he branched out and started his own label. The only thing that excites me even more is the SIGNEES! I'm going to make this into a series and we will talk about all of them one by one because they are all stars and deserve their own post! First we are going to talk about the man himself Mr. Park Jae-sang. 

When I first started writing for HAS I wasn't going to write about PSY mainly because I thought there was a lot of information already and it was just to easy to find yourself. I don't want this post either to be a facts quote about everything he has done, but I did want to post about what I like most about this artist. 

We all know that PSY is a legend, but I think what I love most about him is he isn't afraid to be him and you see that in the artist he chose to sign. PSY has always been a controversial artist and he's always pushed what people perceived as "normal." So many people, including the Korean government, have told him he can not do certain things, but he does them anyway. And I just have to respect that. He's not afraid to think outside of the box and fight what he thinks is right. He's okay with "pushing the norm," and lest be honest his videos are funny and a little bit on the troll side. 

PSY's "GANGNAM STYLE" pretty much broke the internet when it was released back on July 15, 2012, still today has over 4 BILLION views, and ranks at number 3 of most watched music videos on YouTube of all times. 

That being said I think my favorite song of his is probably New Face or Hangover where he features the goat Snoop Dogg himself.

It's just exciting for me to see him in action. I'm in the middle of watching his LOUD show where JYP and him fight to see who can build the better NEXT rookie boy group. Kind of reminds me of the one JYP did with YG. On his wall in one episode there is a quote that I just love it says "Art cannot be criticized because every mistake is a new creation." He states in this episode that he wants to help them make their creations come to life, not just make his own.  I knew that I liked him as a person before but this show really brings out more of what he hopes to accomplish with his new(ish) label and I just love it. He has even been quoted in saying "I will create a playground for the passionate players who are willing to sweat for their dreams!! ^^"

With a reputation like PSY's it's only fitting that he have the crew he has. He's opened so may doors for artist like him and I know there is more to come. I'm interested to see who else he signs and honestly I hope he brings some "dead" people back to life.
