TopDog

The story associated with the “TopDog” music video is subtle, and if you weren’t familiar with the background of Amadeus or any classical music, it might not make a lot of sense.  Both the song and music video are inspired by Mozart and Salieri and are based on the 1984 movie Amadeus.

Basically, it’s a composer battle.

It starts with have B-Joo representing Mozart and Hansol representing Salieri in a futuristic, classical battle. B-Joo and Hansol use completely different styles to portray their characters.  Ironically, that has B-Joo being more of a free spirit and Hansol being far more rigid in his movements.  The difference in the movements can especially be seen in the dance video (below).

I loved how they incorporated pieces of classical music throughout the piece, especially when they’re accompanied by the raspy rap lines.

Lyrics:

Yeah~! Stardom K-Pops next kingdom.
CUZ I’m ToppDogg ToppKlass ToppDogg
I do what I do best 

Before pouring out your soul
Only the skin is left, deceived by empty words
Feeling betrayed by the words that are too light, hey
(Tainting the soul)
Your fantasies have all been broken
Cooled affections became burnt ash
(Tainted hand)
The sins of the world are worn out
(The candlelight shakes in front of temptations)
This song will be a lighthouse in the darkness

History maker, that is me
We work in our own way
Others shine for a moment and self-destruct
I know, I’m a flower that bloomed from the mud
I’m writing history, I’m a living fossil,
I create something every night
When I write the diary that you write,
history, they call me genius

Even if you go back, do the right thing
Whatever situation it may be, do it my way
You are witnessing history right now
History in a making
CUZ I AM TOPP DOGG

Future dramatic,

Chromatic stop and play

Wait till the end,

Sparkling masterpiece, who’s that?

Why? This is classic,

Even if you go back, do the right thing
Whatever situation it may be, do it my way
You are witnessing history right now
History in a making
