Grammy Award-winning rapper Missy Elliott is heading to KCON 2013.
KCON is the world’s largest K-Pop fan convention. The “Get Ur Freak” on rapper will perform as part of the event’s M COUNTDOWN What’s up LA concert on August 25.
“I’m excited to be a part of KCON. This event will allow me to interact with a diverse group of artists and fans,” said Missy Elliott.
KCON is bigger and better than ever! Not only has the event moved to Los Angeles, but for the first time it has expanded to two days. “The star-studded K-pop concert will bring to close a convention that covers every nook and cranny of Korean pop culture through a wide variety of panels, workshops, artist engagement sessions and more.”
“The combination of rap royalty and some of K-pop’s biggest names performing at the same event in Los Angeles is exactly why we have created KCON,” said Ted Kim, president and CEO of Mnet America. “For one weekend, the Los Angeles Sports Memorial will become the capital of K-pop in America.”
KCON is set to take place on August 24 and 25 at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles. The concert will also be the first ever U.S. taping of the #1 K-Pop countdown show, MCOUNTDOWN. Headlining acts of M COUNTDOWN What’s up LA includes leading K-pop artists, such as EXO, f(x), 2AM, TEEN TOP, Dynamic Duo, and leader of K-pop super group BIG BANG, G Dragon.

Drake is all-smiles on the cover of the July issue of GQ magazine.
In an article titled “How to Drake It In America,” rapper Drake chats with GQ magazine about his career, family, what keeps him motivated and the simple things in life. The “Thank Me Later’ emcee even reveals his thoughts on that infamous feud with Chris Brown.
On his haters:
“You notice they don’t criticize the music itself, though,” says Drake about his detractors. “I’m okay with that.”
Now that Bobby Brown seems to have gotten his life back on track, he’s decided to drop some new music. The last studio album that Brown released was in 1997 (Forever). This album, title The Masterpiece, will be released on Jan. 25, 2011.
Rumor has it that, Brown will release his new album under his own label Brownhouse Entertainment through Geffen/Interscope. Brown’s album will be managed on Front Line Management
