[Article] How would you compare the rapping skills of CL to Yoon Mirae AKA Tasha? (October 25, 2011)

How good are CL’s rapping skills? [The Leaders Live (G-Dragon, Teddy, 2NE1’s CL)]

Frankly speaking, among the rappers, CL is the one with superior skills. The fact is, when speaking of rap music, producing is a core aspect so you can’t just have rapping skills by itself. And from this, it is argued that you have rapping ability only when you can create proper phrases while flowing with a given rhythm. So, when you look at just ‘rapping ability’, CL is a rapper that is clearly skilled.

Yoon Mirae is the unsurpassed figure in the female rapping scene and there is no doubt that the majority of female rappers are compared to Yoon Mirae, but in the end it is concluded that Yoon Mirae is like a legendary miracle icon. Since Yoon Mirae is this sort of figure, comparison to her seem to be a childish act. With singing ability being different, the nature of her rapping being replaced by a different individual is something that still isn’t known. But somehow, if you’re talking about finding someone with that kind of comparative standing, we have found that CL is similar to Yoon Mirae’s level with our careful and reasonable evaluation on rappers of equal class (to Yoon Mirae).

We have already seen many (of CL’s) live stages and we feel that we have truly seen the strong image of female hiphop has she has adjusted herself too. Simply put, she’s not only similar to Yoon Mirae, but has instances where her pure flow can be compared to the likes of Nicki Minaj. There is no way that you cannot see that she is a rapper with natural rapping ability whom has a huge presence with her diverse talents.

However, since she is a member of the group 2NE1, there is an ambiguous boundary placed upon her so there is no choice but to put a question mark next to the questions that are being left behind from talks in regards to the possible level of her rap making ability. Also, her abilities in making hip hop have not yet been shown which means that a full evaluation on CL herself is not yet possible. In other words, she is in a completely different standpoint to someone like G-DRAGON who has already shown his creativity in huge amounts with the release of his solo album. Of course, when looking at rap itself, the rappers currently affiliated with the YG Movement greatly deserve being called top class.

This is a live video of “The Leaders” which is included in G-DRAGON’s 1st album.
Even though she is rapping together with two male rappers, she takes the lead naturally without showing any signs of losing to them.
Truly, she is an uprising rapper who is most noticeable when she’s onstage.


T/N: Yoon Mirae or Tasha is a hugely influential rapper in Korea who is also known as the “Queen of Soul” and “Queen of Hiphop”. She is married to Tiger JK of Drunken Tiger and they have a (super adorable) son named Jordan. Tasha is also the singer in the 2011 MAMA official theme song that was released recently.
Seriously, if you don’t know her, YOU ARE MISSING OUT BIG TIME!
Also, CL being compared to Tasha is amazing imo so I’m super happy about this article ^^

  1. i higly respect the queen of rap yoon mirae as should everyone who knows anything about hiphop in korea. the fact that CL is being compared to her is a huge compliment and i think its well deserved, even though shes in an ‘idol group’ where she doesnt have much oppurtunity to show off her rap skills ppl still recognize it. out of all the groups out there she undeniably the best female rapper PERIOD! hopeing and praying for a solo album from our leader!!!

  2. all female rappers maybe will be killing by CL if they comapare CL rap with them in english…CL is the BEST FEMALE RAPPERS i ever seen…

  3. One thing that attracts me to CL is her flow, her enunciation, her tone and her incredible stage presence… i was really impressed with her rapping skills. I

    even tried to search for other group’s rapper and listen to them gazillion times.But only to fell in love with CL more and more.

    but i also recognize Tasha’s reputation and i can say she’s Tasha and noone can take that away from her. She was able to build her name in the industry and shes one heck of a rapper.

    But in today’s generation and league of boy and girlgroups, CL is the best in the game. To be able to be compared to Tasha is realy an honor.

    Given the opportunity to have her own album and bring out her full potential as a lyricist (and even come up with her own composition). She will go a long way… Got addicted to her version of Nicky MInaj’s “did it on ’em”. Even singing it until now — See the ring? Kiss that!

    happy with the article and i bet chaerin is blushing right now. hehehehe
