July 2014 Seoul Concert Editor’s Pick: Jay Park Hip Hop Concert
2014 Jay Park Hip-hop Concert
Hip-hop is still a fringe genre in Korea with most offerings being drowned out by the mainstream pop music that gets belted out on every street corner. It’s only been recently that the strong bass beats have been able to slowly work their way onto radios and televisions in Seoul and the rest of Korea. Former 2PM leader, Jay Park is bringing a night of hip-hop to Jamsil Stadium. This time he’ll be joined by fellow AOMG rappers Gray and Loco and special guest MC Sniper. While Gray and Loco are new to the hip-hop scene in Korea, MC Sniper has been a mainstay for nearly 20 years bringing heavy beats into the Korean fold. This concert will be great for anyone with even a passing interest in hip-hop.
