Here’s the new video from the fresh Japanese Hip Hop crew Simi Lab’s music video “UNCOMMON” from their new album ” Page 1: ANATOMY OF INSANE “. The album was released last week.

We do know hey’re based in Sagamihara, Kanagawa. Simi Lab, consists of numerous young fresh kids. The main members are QN, OMS B’Eats, MARIA, DyyPRIDE and Hi’Spec. OMS B’Eats, DyyPRIDE and Maria are mixed race, as you can see in this video, but they all rap in Japanese as they’re born and raised in Japan.
