Let’s Get to Know South Korean-American Rapper Jay Park
Jay Park is a Korean-American singer, songwriter, rapper, record producer, model, dancer, choreographer, entrepreneur, actor, member of the Seattle-based b-boy crew Art of Movement (AOM), and founder and CEO of the independent hip-hop record label AOMG and his new global label H1GHR Music. He also signed with the record label Roc Nation, becoming the first Asian American to do so. Jay Park started as a b-boy and dancer known for his charismatic performances and stage presence. Jay Park was described as a “born entertainer” by Korean pop singer Patti Kim, and The New York Times quoted the president of digital music distributor DFSB Kollective describing Park as “not just an artist, but also his own PR agent, fan club president, and TV network.”
Jay Park initially rose to fame as the leader of the South Korean boy band 2PM, formed by record label JYP Entertainment in 2008, after having previously been a trainee for four years. In September 2009, Jay Park returned home to Seattle after comments he wrote about Korea in 2005 as a teenager were publicized by Korean media, and Jay Park officially left the group in early 2010. In March 2010, Jay Park uploaded a cover video of B.o.B’s hit “Nothin’ on You” with his own rap and lyrics to YouTube which went viral and reached over 2,000,000 views in less than 24 hours, leading to the release of Jay Park’s first EP Count on Me in July 2010 which debuted at number one on the Gaon chart.
Jay Park returned to South Korea in June 2010 for the filming of Hype Nation while being represented by Digital Media Wire’s CEO and entertainment attorney Ned Sherman, and in July 2010, Jay Park signed a contract with SidusHQ, one of the largest agencies in South Korea, re-debuting as a solo singer and an actor.
