Last Saturday night, H1GHR MUSIC – Jay Park and Cha Cha Malone’s global hip-hop music label – took over Manhattan on the sophomore stop of their 6-city U.S. tour. The touring members were Cha Cha Malone himself, Sik-K, pH-1, Woodie Gochild, Jarv Dee, Phe Reds, Raz Simone, Ted Park, and Avatar Darko.
The group played crowd favorites and more, from Sik-K’s “party (Shut Down)”, pH-1’s “Donut”, and Woodie Gochild’s “Let’s Get It”, to surprising toss-ins like Jay Park’s “Yacht” (which Sik-K is a feature on) and the Show Me the Money throwback “Life is a Gamble”.
The Seattle-based artists featured on the tour also killed it, from Phe Red’s stripped down solos, to Ted Park, Jarv Dee, Raz Simone, and Avatar Darko’s fire stages.
With a great audience and even greater set, this show was one for the books. We hope to see H1GHR back in the Big Apple very soon!
If you’re still wanting to catch a show, check out the remaining legs of the tour here.
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?
