LATE LEE is K-Pop's next up-and-coming star. Hailing from South Korea, LATE, otherwise known as Joe Lee moved out to Los Angeles when he was just a kid in elementary school. LATE is based out of LA now and has begun pursuing his music career as a full-time endeavor.
LATE’s sound captures numerous stylistic influences that many fans of K-Pop are already familiar with. Whether it's through biting rap lyrics or crooning r&b melodies, his quirky and unique style adds to the overall K-music sound that's distinctly LATE. Plus, you may have already seen him at local performances or KCON, as LATE is no stranger to the stage.
LATE's music is a collection of personality and individual anecdotal stories neatly wrapped up into a series of songs that make up his debut album, Elevator. The collection of Indie Hip-Hop and K-Pop is elegantly infused in a palatable and fresh package that's sure to delight listeners who are particularly fond of Dean, offonoff, miso and Cheeze.
