Vivid (stylized as VIVID) is the debut studio album by Japanese hip-hop/rap artist Daisuke "KM-MARKIT" Kawai. The album failed to chart on Oricon, despite featuring an array of popular artists, including ZEEBRA, Koda Kumi, Miliyah Kato and UZI among others.
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. 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. KM-MARKIT had collaborated with Kumi prior for her song "Hot Stuff," which was released a week prior to Vivid.
Many of the artists featured on the album were his fellow members in UBG, including ZEEBRA, UZI and OJ FLOW.
