Jackson (From GOT7) Drops Music Video and Premiers on WorldStar


He's known as the silly, but sexy rapper in the kpop group GOT7, but late on August 25th, Jackson Wang dropped his music video for his first solo song, "Papillon," with a premier on WorldStarHipHop. That probably had a lot to do with Ben Baller, the controversial but popular jewelry maker who's known in the hip-hip community.

Baller (a mentor for Jackson), is featured in the music video, as well as African-American dancers towards the end of it. The song itself is trappy and pretty hard core, and all in English. The music video shows Jackson stepping out of a helicopter with Ben Baller and a Black guy, then he starts his rap.
"you got me feeling like a Papillon, Find it I shine like a diamond. Oh Lord, Oh Lord, I truly feel blessed. I been trapped inside but now I feel blessed. I'll break rules like Rick Ross'd be saying. Spit fire like flame tools, them burn it all. Money and fame don't define me....."
"Do what you are told, says who. Better dodge for your life fool. Pull a trigger if I have to. Be the sniper aiming at you."

For fans who know and love him, it's hard to believe that Jackson knows about that hard core life-style. He's signed with JYP Entertainment (with GOT7), and that label has their artists on a pretty tight kpop leash. So how authentic is this Jackson (under Team Wang Production) that we see displayed on the music video screen? And how long will this style of music last for him? Is he being original, or is he profiting from appropriation, with Ben Baller leading the way? Time will tell. In the meantime, the video is good, and it is trending on WorldStar Hip Hop.

Really an honor to be first Asian to ever make it to the big box on @worldstar . Thank you so much for the World Premiere, it's a very memorable moment for me,I really do appreciate everything from the bottom of my heart.
