Independent South Korean record label Illionaire Records formed in January 2011 by rappers The Quiett and Dok2. They are also known for the part they have played in the successful career of rapper Beenzino. Despite its small size, Illionaire Records is considered one of the most influential hip hop record labels in South Korea due to the popularity of its artists.
It seems that one of the companies original motivators was to avoid the standardized system that is adopted by the bigger Korean record labels where most of the profits are fed through to the folk at the top of the management chain, often not making its way to the pockets of the performers and it seems that over the past 7 years the formula has worked.
Though The Quiett had released 5 albums prior to co-founding Illionaire,he has now released 3 additional albums on his own label, no doubt a challenge when going up against the big guys of the industry. Dok2 released just three albums prior to the duo forming the company and has not released an additional 3 albums on their label as we as a swag of mixtapes and extended plays.
Now, they are finally heading to Australia for the very first time to wow Australian audiences who will get to see them up close and personal at intinmate gigs in Melbourne and Sydney.
DOK2 & THE QUIETT AUSTRALIA TOUR 2018 will be held in Sydney, June 1st @ Space (Shark Hotel) along with & Melbourne on June 2nd @ Trak Live.
