Lazy Mutha Fucka (LMF) is a Cantonese hip-hop group from Hong Kong that recently celebrated their 20 year anniversary with a two-day concert, “LMFXXYEARFEST,” back in December 2019. And to commemorate this milestone, HYPEBEAST ZH produced a 23-minute documentary, entitled Our Glorious Times, about the group’s “heroic” history.
“LMF would reappear whenever something goes wrong with the society,” a phrase commonly used by fans about the group’s grounded music and lyrics that reflect the real lives of Hong Kong people and global issues, with songs like “WTF,” “Liberty,” “The Dark Times” and “2019.”
Looking back two decades ago, most of LMF’s band members met through “Dark Entry,” back then a regular underground music show that took place in Hong Kong’s Ko Shan Theatre. One of the founding members, Wah, who is known for his laziness became inspiration for the band’s name: Lazy Mutha Fucka.
“Wah is the core spirit of LMF,” pointed fingers, to which he responds: “We would battle each other’s laziness by not getting anything done. Whoever couldn’t stand the hunger would leave the studio. I’m always ahead of the game. I can usually sleep away a lot of things, or I’ll just starve myself.”
Over the years, LMF experienced self-funding, disbanding and regrouping; however none of which weakened their status in the hearts of Hong Kong hip-hop fans. Fast forward to “LMFXXYEARFEST,” the anniversary concert saw LMF members MC Yan (陳廣仁), Kevin Boy (李健宏), Jimmy (麥文威), Prodip (梁偉庭), Davy (陳匡榮), Phat (陳偉雄), Kit (梁永傑) and Wah (孫國華) come together, possibly for the last time, for two days of revelry that was one for the books.
