The world's first hip hop music video shot entirely in North Korea

21 January 2014 / 2 years 9 months ago

Two aspiring hip hop starlets have launched themselves onto the world stage in what is probably the most unorthdox of ways -- by shooting a music video in North Korea.

Rapping duo Pacman and Peso, whose real names are Anthony Bobb and Dontray Ennis, actually decided to make a video for one of their tracks in the reclusive Korean state after they were offered an opportunity to join a group heading there from the USA.

In a bid to make their maiden trip out of the United States, and their one shot to stardom a reality, the pair took to crowdsourcing website Kickstarter to raise funds to cover their trip and production of the music video.

They had aimed to raise $6,000 but landed up with some $10,000 after a hedge fund manager, James Passin, chipped in $5,000, reported The Washington Post.

While their video and music track comes across as a tad raw still, they have at least managed to achieve their goal of putting themselves out there into the public eye with a bold approach to their careers.
