Crown J (Jewel), born Kim Kei Hoon (Kevin) is a Korean rapper who is consistently grounded in the tradition and aesthetic of American rap and hip-hop. After releasing his first album in South Korea, Crown gained recognition when he appeared on the popular Korean television reality show We Got Married with Seo In Young. They were so popular that their pairing was nicknamed the “Ant Couple.” In late 2011, Crown J also gained notoriety when he was caught with marijuana and subsequently banned from appearing on Korean television shows. That same year his former manager accused him of assault and blackmail, charges in which he was found innocent. Crown J spends his time between Seoul, Korea and Atlanta, Georgia, where he works with Flyboy Entertainment to solidify his foothold in the American East Coast rap music business and regain a presence in the Korean entertainment industry. He has plans to make a comeback in 2012.
