Information[edit]

Vivid (stylized as VIVID) is rapper KM-MARKIT's debut studio album released under the Pony Canyon label. Prior to releasing his solo album, in 1998 he was part of the Japanese hip-hop group Urbarian Gym (UBG), which was founded by famous rapper ZEEBRA.[2] The album failed to chart on Oricon and Recochoku, despite being released during several other UBG artists' solo works.

The album was released only as a CD, never carrying a corresponding DVD. However, when placed into a DVD player, viewers could access the music video for "Rainy Day" (stylized as RAINY DAY), which featured singer-songwriter Koda Kumi.[3] KM-MARKIT had collaborated with Kumi prior for her song "Hot Stuff," which was released a week prior to Vivid.[4]
