Sounds From the Underground: Rhymeberry

Did you know that there’s an idol rap group? I bet you didn’t because this is another edition of “Sounds From the Underground” where I feature underground idol acts!

The first time I was shown this idol rap group, I was blown away by how catchy the songs were! Rhymeberry even features a DJ! She’s called DJ Hikaru and takes to the stage saying, “Yo!, Ya’ll ready!?” in a not so convincing but hilarious way. Then she proceeds to drop some fat beats that the other girls rap over.

Rhymeberry is a subunit of an idol group called usa☆usa Shoujo Club. I can see this unit becoming the BABYMETAL of usa☆usa Shoujo Club, where the sub-unit will create more buzz just based on the fact that they’re doing something different and bending the idol genre. There really isn’t too much information on Rhymeberry besides them being a subunit and that they released their first single on July 11th this year. They don’t even have their own website, only a twitter account! It’s so underground! All you idol hipsters should be listening to this group!

What Rhymeberry has is some catchy, old-school rap tunes and the instrumentals have the throwback rap feel to them. This group reminds me of 80’s rap. THEY ARE THE BEASTIE BOYS OF THE IDOL GENRE.

  1. I gotta say, I had my doubts while I was reading your description of them, but they’ve got some potential. I dig their sound a lot as well, not too modern rap like :D nice find Anthony!

  2. hey this is not bad i like them this is interesting i’ll look into this nice get Anthony

  3. Hmm I like rap but they are not my cup of tea… They’re pretty good but I just can’t see myself listening to their music… Cool to know they exist though. lol

    You know, I think I like rap that has a bit more of a melody behind it… These girls just seem like they’re just chanting… I dunno. Like I said they aren’t bad or anything but it’s just not the kind of rap I really like. lol

  4. Glad to see others blogging about Rhymeberry! I was lucky enough to have a friend send me a copy of their first single “Hey! Brother”, which contains a recorded version of the titular Hey! Brother song (Nee Oniichan), a live version of Rhymeberry iz No. 1 and another song (which is a bit different) Ich Liebe Dich.

    The one thing is that while they’re really good recorded, they really excel live. These girls are good at what they do (I don’t listen to much other rap!) and I really hope they get the kind of recognition other niche groups like Babymetal end up getting.

  5. I like how the DJ works the crowd like a funky Dominatrix.

    “More genki, you maggots!”

    Withhold that luv, DJ!
