Mummy-D (RHYMESTER) and THA BLUE HERB, a Legendary Rivalry

These two groups, based in Tokyo and Sapporo respectively, competed to conquer Japan’s emerging hip-hop world. Their rivalry was expressed through songs and interviews, and for years, various specialized media speculated about the true nature of this feud. Over two decades later, in 2020, tensions finally eased. tha BOSS invited Mummy-D to collaborate on Starting Over, a track from his solo project released in April 2023. This song began a reconciliation between the two artists and generated excitement among fans for a more profound collaboration.
