New York fans of illionaire records' Beenzino, Dok2 & The Quiett will have the opportunity to see the hip hop artists at B.B. King on August 2.

August is proving to be an awesome month for Korean music fans in the United States with this latest concert announcement providing a night of entertainment for Korean hip hop fans.

Beenzino previously performed on the West Coast as part of the May 2014 Asian Music Festival lineup in Los Angeles and Seattle.

While the New York City performance of Verbal Jint, Bumkey, and Kanto was definitely an amazing night of hip hop, Beenzino was missed by fans.

Fans who were unable to attend the previous New York Asian Music Festival lineup missed the opportunity to see some of the best Korean rappers in an unprecedented setting.

Beenzino, Dok2 & The Quiett will be performing in support of the newest illionaire records compilation album entitled “11:11.”

“11:11” dropped on May 21 and features some of the hottest rhymes in 2014 including “Rollie Up” and “Don't Front” which features Jay Park.

Beenzino most recently featured on the soulful Jungigo track “Want U,” while The Quiett & Dok2 are also known for spitting hard rhymes on tracks such as “2 Chainz & Rollies.”

Rapper Beenzino has completely bounced back from the plagiarism controversy that was surrounding his track "Dali, Van Picasso" earlier this year.

"The company related to Beenzino's song 'Dali, Van, PIcasso,' which was released in December, was unable to recognize if the relevant song had used samples during its working process," a rep from his agency had stated on January 20, according to the publication Allkpop

The rep continued, "This problem was brought up on the internet message boards, which was how we came to realize the situation. . .  After the company checked to see if this was true or not, we immediately contacted the copyright company for the original, sampled song Chet Baker's 'Alone Together' and we plan on talking with them to go through the formalities for sampling clearance."

The agency's rep concluded, "We will handle the situation with the utmost speed and let you know the results as soon as they come out. We apologize for unintentionally causing concern to music fans."
