KMK: Anderson .Paak

Drop everything and go see Anderson .Paak I caught a couple of Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals shows this summer in London. Their set opened up Sunday, the final day, of the Wireless Festival, which is essentially London’s only dedicated hip-hop festival—also on the bill that day were Action Bronson, Young Thug, and Vince…

KMK: Black Artists in K-pop

K-pop music can be found throughout the world, from far flung little Chinese villages to big booming American cities playing the likes of 2NE1, B1A4, SHINee, or Big Bang.

House of Wings

KMK: House of Wings

Wings: The universally loved but oh so difficult to pull off dish. Deceptively easy and the list of restaurants who have tried and failed remains a long one. Just about a month ago I tried a wing night over on Gyeongridan at the Metro and while those wings looked so tasty and delicious on the…

KMK: Shuttle Delivery

Umbrellas be damned, sweating isn’t sexy, and let’s face facts… it’s just too too hot to cook. The Shuttle Delivery Rockets have taken off and the crew is driving through alleys, up hills, and through the tunnels to get delicious food, drinks, and desserts to the hungry masses in the torrential downpours and energy-evaporating heat….
