Jay Park also worked with Remy Ma and ROC Nation's Fat Joe in the Asian remix of "All The Way Up."

    US market still don't give shine to Asian artists nomatter how skilled they are. Jin had mad respect but still flopped. MCs like Dumbfoundead been putting in work for ages but still still grinding for that higher stage. CL had as much swagger and presence as Jay, shared stages with big hitters and still only got minor recognition with alot of it still being k-pop "niche" ties... Or the gimmicks to the western eye like Psy.... wish the boy all the success, but its a hard nut to crack (undercover prejudice).

    I don't know who jin is but as for dumbfounded its hard to break into the american rap game period, especially for someone that has his style aka laid back, rapping abt real topics etc. As for CL she isnt even u.s. style. I dont know people claim that she is bc she really isnt. She comes off as a try hard and she didn't chose the right music as her singles in the first place, if she chose the right kind they maybe she would have a chance but lifted was wack. But Jay...... jay knows American music style and trends very well as he is american, he follows the music and he produces american sytle music in korean all the time. He uses american slang in his music and everything comes off as natural, nothing seems gimmickey. If he signs under roc nation thats already a huge step forward as he already has a great chance at succeeding just by being under their wings.

    Jin destroyed all on BET's Freestyle Friday... which got him mad exposure and respect, then signed to Ruff Ryders and still went nowhere....

    I think Jay will succeed though... The other artists you mentioned, even CL just doesn't have what it takes to make it far in the US, but Jay has something special. I can see the US loving his music and looks.

    Like.. no misunderstanding.. Jay is a cool mofo and wish him the best,... seen him around, he seems down to earth and real... my statement was more saying, nomatter how skilled you are and how much backing you have recordlabel wise, the US audiences seem to not give a fuck bout Asians (Asian-American or from overseas).

    They don't hate each other. That rumor stemmed from another rumor started by a stylist years ago. Beyoncé and Rihanna have been caught on camera at events talking, hugging, and even blowing kisses at each other from across the room. They even praise each other. I think it's just that media (and some fans) like to pit successful women against each other.

    You can be in two labels at the same time, soooo many kpop groups and solo artists are in two or more, one for Korea, another one for maybe Japan or China? :)

    May not have the best reputation, but definitely got a whole lot of fame. Hopefully they can do the same for Jay Park.

    A lot of K-Artists have collabs with American artists (popular or not), and very rarely do they get popular. If he's signed under a popular label, then he'll have more connections and better chances at international popularity. (He'll even have chances at better collaborations, with really popular artists as well.) So whether he joins this label or not, please keep supporting him wholeheartedly.
