Lim Sung-bin, who goes by his stage name, Beenzino, is a 29-year-old Korean rapper who signed to Illionaire Records in 2012. His style and music icons include Theophilus London, A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, and Young Thug, although he admits to loving Babyface as a child. Like his idols, Beenzino is outspoken about personal and political issues. “Age is really important to people in Korea, and it blocks everything,” he said in frustration. “You can’t suggest new opinions.” He’s also currently “locked up” here because of the country’s mandatory military service time of two years. “I’m going to spend all my money and go crazy,” he said of one-day venturing beyond Korea’s borders. For now, he’s got his German model girlfriend, Stefanie Michova, to school him on the ways of the world.
