With Mnet’s rapping competition show ”Show Me the Money 4” nearing its semi finals, fans around the world are not only picking their favorite contestants for the win, but their favorite team. Because even if SMTM’s (acronym for the show) purpose is looking for Korea’s next hottest rap act, some of the limelight is stolen by the judges. And with characters like Jay Park, Verbal Jint, and Tablo, who could possibly expect the show to be all business? After all, a good portion of the middle episodes were dedicated to showcasing the judges teams — Team YG, AOMG, BrandNew Music, and ZiPal — trying to promote themselves so the contestants would choose them.
And it worked. Whether it was Jay Park and Loco from Team AOMG spending a lot of their own money in their performances or Tablo and Jinusean bringing their YG labelmates on SMTM4 or Zico going all out producing new songs, contestants chose their teams largely influenced by these gimmicks. But of course, the various teams are all starkly different from one another, personality and artistically wise.
