Artist Spotlight: Geeks
A two member rap duo consisting of Louie (April 30,1990) born Hwang MunSeop and Lil Boi (June 7, 1991) born Oh SeungTaek under Grand Line Entertainment. They debuted with their cover/remake of Tamia’s Officially Missing You, which we featured as one of our Top 100 singles of 2011. Noelle is bending the rules to bring back the artist spotlight mostly because of Geeks’ new digital single “Just Go” with one of our favorite female vocalists, Jo Hyuna of Urban Zakapa.

Here’s a link to aid me in backing up my claim of Jo Hyuna’s extensive work as a featured vocalist.
