On May 22, New York City experienced a good sampling of Korean hip-hop in the form of the first annual Asian Music Festival.

The night featured performances from some of South Korea's best known rappers including headliners Verbal Jint and Bumkey.  Bumkey's TROY group-mate Kanto joined the stage as well as Philadelphia-based rapper Danny Chung (formerly known as Decipher), Hwayoung, and New York's own Rekstizzy.

The Asian Music Festival took place at BB King's Blues Club in Times Square and was a long-overdue showcase of Korean hip-hop in the United States.
