The reigning hip-hop power couple Tiger JK and Yoon Mirae will be performing at one of the largest music conferences in the world: the “Midem: Marche International du Disque et de l’Edition Musicale” in Cannes, France.
The husband-and-wife team will perform on the mainstage of the Midem Festival on Jan. 27, along with other K-pop artists including rapper Bizzy, hip-hop group Block B and the rookie singer-songwriter Juniel.
Tiger JK and Yoon Mirae, who married in 2007, are both veterans in the hip-hop industry and often perform together onstage. Yoon Mirae, who is known as the Queen of Soul, debuted at the age of 16 with the hip-hop/R&B group Uptown.
Hip-hop artist Tiger JK moved to Los Angeles with his family at age 12, and after witnessing the tension between Korean-Americans and African-Americans during the L.A. riots, he was inspired to bridge the cultural gap through his beats and has been in the rap game ever since.
