For the final installment of Essentials covering Korean hip-hop band Epik High, we focus on the remaining member, Mithra Jin. Unlike his bandmates, the rapper's selection consists primarily of simplistic utilitarian items. A variety of USB and charging cables, as well as his iPhone and MacBook exemplify the importance of staying connected to the world. A set of Apple EarPods, a Beats Pill and a pair of Beats Pro headphones are also included, exhibiting the centric aspect of his life -- music. In addition, an Oxford note and pen allow the lyricist to jot down any ideas which he can easily refer back to. Mithra also included an umbrella, which serves as both a symbolic and practical item -- Epik High's 2008 album Pieces, Part One featured a track "Umbrella." Whenever it rains, the song receives heavier radio plays. and as a result, Mithra has develop a fondness for somber weather.
