The goal is to try to create synergy between hiphop in America and Korean hip-hop, and use it as an entry point into the American market.

As reported by KpopHerald: The project is a global hip-hop collaboration organized by Korean music production and distribution firm Luminant Entertainment. Luminant Entertainment designed the new project in an effort to promote Korean hip-hop in the U.S. hip-hop market, which has high barriers to entry

Joey Bada$$‘s real name is Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott. He released his debut album in January 2015 called “B4.DA.$$.” His style has that 90’s feel described as “boom bap” style, which is a style of hip-hop signified by a hard bass drum and snapping snare, rather than claps and snaps.

Joey Bada$$ made the headlines earlier this year when a picture of Malia Obama was found on social media, wearing a Pro.Era t-shirt.
