Drunken Tiger, Yoon Mi Rae & Bizzy to Spread Korean Hip-Hop in California This Fall
The K-pop veterans will hit Pasadena in November.
Korean hip-hop veterans Drunken Tiger, Yoon Mi Rae and Bizzy will perform in Pasadena, Calif., on Nov. 16 as part of the finale for "Kollaboration Star," a nationwide Asian-American talent competition. The longtime collaborators are currently riding high on the K-Pop Hot 100 with Yoon Mi Rae's solo single at No. 2 after a three-week run at No. 1. Plus, Drunken Tiger's "The Cure" featuring Yoon Mi Rae, his wife, and rapper Bizzy sits at No. 8.
The trio will perform an hour set at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. Drunken Tiger, Yoon Mi Rae and Bizzy are famous in South Korea for bringing the then-absent hip-hop genre to the mainstream during the '90s and early '00s. Fans can likely expect to hear hits from their lengthy discography including recent material from their MFBTY promotions (single "Sweet Dreams" peaked in the Top 15 on the K-Pop Hot 100 in February) and even, perhaps, their remix of Far East Movement/Justin Bieber collab track "Live My Life."
The show will also be somewhat of a homecoming for Drunken Tiger, who went to high school in Los Angeles.
After 13 local competitions in locations like Atlanta, Honolulu, East Lansing and more, six finalists determined by online voting will fly to the SoCal city to be named champion of the annual Kollaboration Star conest and win $20,000.
Tickets go on sale October 10 with more information on Kollaboration Star's website.
