London are you ready?  Artists from the hip-hop label AOMG will be hitting your city this summer. The Cult of Ya is bringing producer Gray, rapper Loco, new artist Woo Won Jae and DJ Pumkin to the Troxy on July 21.

You might recall, the Cult of Ya was responsible for bringing Jay Park, Sik-K, Hoody and DJ Wegun to the Troxy earlier this year, in February. Jay Park along with Simon Dominic are the CEOs of AOMG. (Park is also signed with Roc Nation, and is also the co-CEO of H1GHR MUSIC, along with Cha Cha Malone.)

According to the Cult of Ya, tickets to see Gray, Loco, Woo Won Jae and DJ Pumkin will go on sale on Sunday, March 25, at 12 p.m. UK Time. They have more information about the concert on the website for the Troxy. 

The Cult of Ya also says you can go to the Official Facebook Event Page for show updates...

This is what the Troxy has to say about the AOMG artists who will be making a stop there in July....
Often cited as one of the most renowned producers and vocalists in the Korean hip hop and R&B industry, Gray has produced mega-hits including "We Are", "Drive" and "Mommae" with fellow AOMG artists Jay Park, Loco and Woo Won Jae. He has also produced for DPR Live, Bewhy, Dean, Simon Dominic, Dok2, and Zion T just to name a few. As an incredible vocalist himself, he has dropped numerous hits including "GOOD", "Respect", and the iconic "Just Do It". He starred as a judge on Korean hip hop survival show "Show Me The Money" and is currently starring in "Hyena On The Keyboard" as Korea's hottest singer-songwriter.

As a co-headliner to the show is Loco, another megastar from AOMG, and the winner of Show Me The Money in 2012. Not only did Loco drop major hits in the last few years including "Hold Me Tight" and "Still" with Crush, "You Too" with Cha Cha Malone, "Bleached" was a top 10 album in 2017 Korean charts. His hit "Spring is Gone by Chance" also won the Best OST in 2015.

Young and clearly the next artist to reign in the Korean hip hop throne is Woo Won Jae, who signed to AOMG after his spectacular rise to fame after his appearances in "Show Me The Money". Taking the scene by storm, Woo Won Jae already has a #1 hit in Korean charts with the megahit "We Are" featuring fellow AOMG artists Gray and Loco, an incredible feat by a new artist. Of further note, his new tracks "Zinza" and "Again" are already garnering major industry attention and has dropped the track "Nostalgia", a OST to Korean TV series Prison Playbook.
