Korean hip hop group Dynamicduo (aka rappers Gaeko & Choiza) are one of the most well-known and prolific groups ever to come out of Korea—from their 2014 release AEAO to last year’s hit single “Smoke.” Dance crew PROWDMON, led by Monika, first gained widespread recognition as part of CJ ENM’s dance competition series Street Woman Fighter. Their performance at the Hammer will feature four members of the crew—Monika, Lip J, Minz, and Kayday.
