For this week’s Weekly Idol, we bring to you, GRAY! He is best known for his skills as a hip-hop recording artist and as a record producer for AOMG. He is also a part of the VV:D crew (which includes the likes of Loco, Crush, ELO and Zion T).
Currently, he is best recognised as a record producer, but he has also produced some of his very own tracks, such as his extended play ‘Call Me Gray’ which he released back in 2013. This was the first album released from the AOMG label, making GRAY the first artist to debut under the company.
However, he has also largely participated as a feature artist for many of his labelmates such as Jay Park, ELO, Loco as well as other artists such as Swings, G2, Crush and Dayday. You may recognise some of his top hit features such as ‘My Last‘, ‘Summer Go Loco‘ and ‘Drive‘.
As a producer, he has participated in producing many top hits which feature his very own recognised producer tag, ‘GRAY’. Fun fact: The ‘GRAY’ heard in his music productions was actually recorded by VV:D crew member, Zion T! (You can hear him mentioning this from 13:34 here).
Some of his top hit music productions include: Jay Park’s ‘Mommae‘, Tiffany’s ‘Heartbreak Hotel‘, Loco’s ‘Good‘ (where he also participated as a recording artist) as well as Hoody’s ‘Your Eyes‘ and more.
As a producer, he has also had the opportunity to take part as a judge/producer for the famous Hip-Hop rap show, Show Me The Money. Along with his labelmate, Simon Dominic they judged as the AOMG producer team for Season 5.
As of recent music productions, GRAY has participated in creating a collaboration piece featuring himself, Sleepy as well as labelmates, Hoody and Loco for the new TV show ‘The Hyena on the Keyboard’. Check out their collaboration piece, ‘I’m Fine‘! The show is a great show to get to know about GRAY as well as many other singer-songwriters.
