It feels like Ravi main rapper for boy group Vixx, has been a bit quiet lately. He’s not really been popping up on the blogosphere like others. But, now it’s clear why. The young homie has been in the lab perfecting his flow, and it shows in his new single “Nirvana” featuring Park Jimin from JYP’s 15&.
Ravi has increased the energy of his vibe with a more gruff vocal flow, and he has increased his flow speed. Although, he creatively keeps the flow variable so the track doesn’t get too monotonous.
The visuals of the Nirvana MV is a more toned down, simple concept. It features the Vixx rapper alone on a large rock, and on a deserted plain or salt flats. And, he’s got on a red blindfold, which is significant, somehow.
The end of the MV features what’s like a freestyle. Ravi gives off a drunken vibe, but maintains a strong flow and demeanor.
Ravi appeared on the 4th season of the Korean hiphop show, Show Me The Money, where he did modestly well. For those who watched it, if you recall he kept winking at the camera, which the producers of the show loved.
As the case may be, I showed him how to do it to make you cool. True story. In the months before the taping of the TV show, Ravi with the rest of Vixx was in New York for a concert show. And, I was stationed in the press pit right in front of the stage. During a short intermission he kept staring at me (probably because of my unique features compared to my other colleagues in the pit that night, which resonated with him) so I winked at him in jest. He caught himself and looked away.
So when SMTM5 came out and he kept winking, well all I could do was laugh.
