VERBAL Biography (Wikipedia)

Verbal (born August 21, 1975) is a third generation Zainichi Korean hip hop recording artist, music video director and record producer who debuted in 1998 as a member of the hip hop group M-Flo.

M-Flo's hits in the early 2000s, such as "How You Like Me Now?" and "Come Again" led to Verbal rapping and producing a wide range of acts in Japan such as Crystal Kay, BoA, Kumi Koda and Namie Amuro.
