Ahn Hyo-jin (better known by her stage name LE) is a South Korean rapper, singer and song writer. She is best known for being the main rapper of K-Pop girl group Exid but you’ve most likely felt (or listened) to her impact even if you never picked up an Exid song until “Up and Down.”
As much as Hani left her mark all over “Up and Down,” the actual song succeeds largely because of LE. The beat jolts to life as soon as she hits the mic and then subsides into an enjoyable if a tad listless, affair until LE resuscitates things in her later verse. LE’s under-appreciated work on the track is more or less par for the course for her career. The girl is a fairly great K-Pop rapper but when one starts to delve into her songwriting credits and appearances with other acts, things get pretty damn impressive. LE has over 20 songwriting credits to her name, including Trouble Maker’s immortal song “Trouble Maker” as well as “Now.” She worked with Hyuna on her “A Talk” album and helped write lyrics for “French Kiss” and “Blacklist.” She’s even done vocal work for other groups, as T-ara had LE contribute to their fantastic chorus for “Sugar Free” and featured her on their mini-album “And & End.”
(The fact that LE had a hand in “Sugar Free” and “Trouble Maker” basically means that I am forever in her debt.)
It’s one thing to be the main rapper of a K-Pop group. It’s quite another when other groups and idols seek you out to work with you. LE is just that good.
LE is so shockingly talented that universities are working overtime to study her phenomena.
LE is so pretty that ponds in deserts are envious of the attention that she receives.
LE’s productivity puts most AI programs to shame.
LE is so sexy that she causes nosebleeds from space.
LE is so great that gods tell tall tales of her exploits.
