Avex and GCREST’s hip-hop-themed multimedia project takes place in the near future, where rappers wear metallic accessories called Phantom Metal. Through Phantom Metal’s chemical reaction with the rapper’s own DNA, rappers are able to create illusions that link to their emotions while performing. The result is a kind of lively concert.
A Paradox Live event at Club Paradox featured four hip-hop teams: BAE, The Cat’s Whiskers, cozmez and Akan Yatsura. Their battle at the event inspired legendary hip-hop team Buraikan, who are hosting a new competition called Phantom Live, this time featuring eight teams.
