Thank goodness for this latest announcement. If you are like me, you enjoy k-pop but hip-hop and R&B is the genre that drives the blood through our veins. KCON did not leave fans like myself out in the cold. They announced during their live chat that they would be bringing Crush and Dynamic Duo to KCON LA 2018.
Crush debuted in 2012 with the release of single Red Dress. He released his first album, Crush On You, in June 2014. This R&B artist hailing from Amoeba Culture has boosted his experience with producing gigs for Korean rappers LOCO, Gray, Zico. In 2014, he also collaborated with Zion.T to release the single “Just”. As a solo artist, Crush had an immensely successful career with the release of hit singles and two EPs, Interlude and Wonderlust. In 2018, Crush released a new single titled “Bittersweet.”
Dynamic Duo is a Korean hip-hop duo composed of Choiza and Gaeko. They officially debuted as Dynamic Duo in 2004 with their runaway hit album Taxi Driver. In 2006, they founded what is now one of the hottest labels in Korean hip-hop, Amoeba Culture. Their second full-length album Double Dynamite earned them “Best Hip Hop Album of the Year” at the 2007 Korean Music Awards. Dynamic Duo has released a total of 8 studio-length albums with numerous charted hits. They took home “Best Rap/Hip Hop” award at the 2017 Melon Music Awards and “Best Collaboration” at the 2017 Mnet Asian Music Awards with “Nosedive” featuring EXO’s Chen.
