This website explains some of the history behind them, although it's all in Japanese. https://matomenewsxx.com/hetarebboy-3044.html

They started out as the group KP and then formed a new group called ヘタレビーボーイ (HetareBBoy). Some of their songs (not sure if all) from when they were KP are listed on the site but some of the videos don't work. Most of their old websites were deleted when they split from their first company.

The two members were Funi and Liyoon. Here are the links to their blogs, although they are inactive and most links don't work but they still have posts from when they were still KP.
Funi's blog https://ameblo.jp/funifuni2/
Liyoon's blog https://ameblo.jp/liyucolle/

Here's the link to the HetareBBoy YouTube channel. It seems to have been renamed as Double Lee and just has videos of Liyoon's (I think it's him) solo work. https://www.youtube.com/user/HetareBBoy/videos

Yeah, I've not been able to find much more than that either. I've found song names like you did but not many videos. They probably didn't make many to start with, just albums. It's possible they never released the songs online like some artists do on YouTube.

I did find their real names though. Liyoon's real name is 李育鉄(リー・ユンチョル)、Funi's real name is 郭正勲 (カク・ジョンフン).

After that I just got hooked into reading about the fight between HetareBBoy (found out this is just Liyoon, not both) and マホト on YouTube.. There's just not much info about KP that I can find.

I remember reading that Liyoon had studied abroad in Britain during high school. I think I read that he became interested in rap while he was there.
Here's an interview with them from Japan Times. He mentions it in here too. Funi/Jewong also talks about his name change a bit.

Do you know that Funi has been doing as i've found out Liyoon became "HetareBBoy" but what about Funi

Seems like he stopped doing music for a bit in 2010 to start his own IT company. Then during 2012-2015 he started the Mewtant Homosapience (MEW) project. It looks like there are a few other artists in his project that he's made songs with. His most recent song seems to be from 2016. Here's the link to that website.

Also unless you search really deep or search in Japanese when your search up KP you'll most likely just find T.O.P

Huh interesting.. I've only been searching in Japanese so I haven't seen anything T.O.P related yet.

Member

In English search's you'll get the song T.O.P because that's the song there most know for since it the was one of the 3 endings for Sonic X

Member

Oh! That T.O.P! Okay, that makes sense. I thought you meant the Korean singer T.O.P from Big Bang. I thought it was weird that he would be in the search results.

Member

What Korean singer?

Member

His name is T.O.P and he's one of the members of the group Big Bang. They're one of the most popular Korean groups. I read the song name as his name.

Also apparently I think there was a German artist named KP also but there songs have been deleted however because of that I can't edit there page on this to add a picture and links to there site

I also wonder if T.O.P has a music video since the other sonic endings Mi-Ra-I and Hikaru Michiru had a music video
