The hip-hop trio will then travel to Los Angeles for a performance on May 29 at a venue that has yet to be announced. The stop will make a stop at the Vogue Theater in Vancouver, Canada on May 31.

Epik High was formed in 2001 and emerged from the Korean underground hip-hop scene. The group has been instrumental in shaping the sounds of Korean rap since their 2003 debut release “Map of the Human Soul.” In 2010, Epik High became the first Korean artist to reach the number one spot on the iTunes chart with their album, “Epilogue.” Their 2014 release “SHOEBOX” helped to establish a new sound within Korean hip-hop through its incorporation of idol group members on the track “Born Hater.”
