“Show Me The Money 6” Confirms All Four Producer Teams!

Guess what TV show’s coming back soon?

The famous Korean rap survival show “Show Me The Money” is gearing up for their sixth season to air in just a few months! Luckily, fans don’t have to wait any more to find out who will be part of the four producer teams! MNET, the broadcasting channel, has already confirmed all four teams and I promise it’s not going to disappoint!

The first team confirmed is team Zico-Dean, we all know how close these two are especially since their formed the group Fanxychild. Unlike Zico who has already been a producer on the show (back in 2015 during SMTM’s season 4 alongside Paloalto), I’m excited to see how Dean will do since it’s his first year.

The second team confirmed is team Tiger JK-Bizzy, two legendary Korean rappers who have been in the game for multiple years now. They’re both signed to the label Jungle Entertainment and they’re part of the hip hop group MFBTY alongside Tiger JK‘s wife Yoon Mirae. They’re also part of a huge crew reuniting a lot of Korean rappers called The Movement Crew. This is their first year but I’m sure these two will bring a lot to the show especially since they have a lot experience.

The third team confirmed is team Dynamic Duo, another legendary hip hop duo who have been active since 2004. They’re under Amoeba Culture and just like Tiger JK and Bizzy, they’re also part of The Movement Crew. This is Dynamic Duo‘s first year as well but just like Tiger JK and Bizzy we can expect a lot!!

The fourth and last team that has been confirmed is team Dok2-Jay Park! The only producer team to have two members coming back on the show! As you probably all know, Dok2 is hip hop label 1LLIONAIRE‘s CEO alongside The Quiett while Jay Park is hip hop label AOMG‘s CEO. Both have been friends and collaborating together since Jay Park went solo, almost 7 years ago. Jay Park was on the show at the same time as Zico while this will be Dok2‘s third year, being on season 3 and 5. Another team with a lot of experience both in hip hop and on the show!

The auditions for “Show Me The Money 6” closed yesterday, April 16th, and were held in both Korea and New York as well as Los Angeles. As of right now, there’s been no specific dates announced as to when the show will air, just that it is set for mid 2017.

Make sure to stay tuned for more updates! What do you think of the producer line up?

1LLIONAIRE RECORDS Sets Up New Label & Introduces Three Artists

Guess what all my 1LLIONAIRE RECORDS fans?

A few days ago, Korean hip hop label, 1LLIONAIRE RECORDS, consisting of rappers Dok2, The Quiett and Beenzino, expanded their business and created a new label called “Ambition Musik“. It is said that the new label will showcase an entirely different kind/style of music than 1LLIONAIRE has showed us so far. They have already signed several artists all of whom were introduced  through Ambition Musik‘s newly opened SNS accounts.

Check out the three artists that have been signed at Ambition Musik below:

1. Kim Hyo Eun

I am so happy that he finally got signed! This guy is a genius and he is super talented. I can’t wait to hear more music from him! Hopefully soon~

Kim Hyo Eun participated in Show Me The Money 5, where he had chosen team Dok2 and The Quiett. He had impressed the two judges with his determination and desire of winning during the first day where the team met as a whole. Unfortunately, he was eliminated in the early rounds.


2. Changmo

Changmo just recently released his second mixtape entitled “Time To Get Money 2” and all I can say is “it’s doooope”! My recommendations are “Maestro” and “Beautiful” but honestly the whole EP  is amazing, so if you have time to check it out!

I’m so excited for new songs from him!


3. Hash Swan

I couldn’t be happier to see Hash Swan signed to a label! Just like Hyo Eun, he deserves it a lot and I hope he’ll get to release more music soon.

Hash Swan also participated in Show Me The Money 5, where unfortunately he was eliminated while chosing a team.


Are you excited for Ambition Musik and what is to come?

NO RE$T 2016 U.S. TOUR IN CHICAGO Coverage

On July 21st, 2016, Dok2 & The Quiett kicked off their highly anticipated “NO RE$T 2016 US TOUR” in CHICAGO!


Dok2 and The Quiett are two rappers who are considered as some of the most influential hip hop artists and are still VERY popular to this day in South Korea. Both talented artists formed their independent record label, Illionaire Records back in 2011 and also houses another popular rapper, Beenzino.

With the Chicago concert being held on one of the hottest days in Chicago, and temperatures rising close to the double digits, Dok2 & The Quiett were sure to make it even hotter as the hype for them was getting hotter by the second!

While the crowd was waiting for the show to start, one of the crew members came out and told the crowd that there were approximately 30 bottles of water on the stage and that they weren’t for drinking. The whole crowd then screamed and cheered super loudly because they all knew what was going to happen, water was going to be thrown on them!


The show started on time and Dok2 & The Quiett were ready to tear up the stage. Within the first few seconds of their first song, the crowd was already jumping and dancing to the beat!

They performed their popular songs: Beverly 1lls (Remix), Rain Shower G-Mix- Dok2, 2 Chainz & Rollies, Future Flame (Dok2), Body 2 Body (The Quiet), 내가 ( Dok2), my favorite, YGGR, Still On My Way  (DOK2) and much more!

You can check out some of our video footage from the show below:

This concert was definitely off to a hot start & all of the people in the crowd had a great time!

Thank you to MANDOO Entertainment for bringing the boys here and you can check out more info on the tour here!
