Originally hailing from Seattle, Jay Park musical roots grew out of his passion for dance. As a competitive b-boy, Jay developed a genuine enthusiasm for hip-hop music and culture. Jay has always held true to both his culturally American roots, while embracing his ethnically Korean roots. Due to his nuanced, multi-cultural understanding and open-mindedness, Jay has garnered respect domestically in Korea and beyond as a global music icon.
In 2013, Jay Park founded the leading independent hip-hop/urban label, AOMG, based in Seoul, South Korea. Within two years, AOMG artists have topped all mainstream music charts in South Korea and Asian regions.
Later, he brought the international music community together with his newly minted label H1GHR MUSIC, which houses artists from various countries, and continues to support and influence tastemakers both mainstream and underground.
In 2017, Jay Park became the first Asian artist to sign with Jay-Z's label, ROCNATION. This garnered worldwide excitement surrounding his foray into the US market.
Jay Park will be embarking on his world tour this year and Asia's not forgotten!
