The Wiltern | Los Angeles, California
Dok2 & The Quiett comes to The Wiltern on Friday 29th July 2016
Not all Korean acts or the so-called 'K-Pop' movement throw a concert with a hyper-spectacle production of lights, costumes, props, glowsticks, cuteness overload, the works…Korean hip hop artists Dok2 & The Quiett choose to keep it low-key and sans the cute packaging and imaging. The just stay true to their genuine artistry and notoriety which found its way to distant shores. Even without the ballyhoo, the mix of superfans are palpitating with excitement, eagerly anticipating a visit from their hip hop heroes from another side of the globe. Better get your tickets as soon as possible, as this shaping up to be a runaway sold out show!
Dok2 (pronounced doh-KEE) and the Quiett are founders and CEOs of their own hip-hop label Illionaire Records.
Dok2 started his career and was signted to a major label at the tender age of 13. He is a songwriter and producer, and has written and produced materials for more established Korean hip hop groups. He released his first solo album in 2009.
