Yellow Boyz, the globetrotting rap trio from Atlanta, will headline the Asian Hip Hop Summit, which will be staged at Princeton University during the 2nd annual IvyCon on November 12, 2011. IvyCon is the Ivy League Asian American Conference, drawing students from Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, and University of Pennsylvania.
Asian Hip Hop Summit is North America's oldest and most widespread Asian arts movement, founded as an annual festival in Koreatown, Los Angeles in 2001. Now an annual concert tour, Asian Hip Hop Summit designated Yellow Boyz as the headliner of this year's tour after they became an international sensation due to their controversial appearance on M-Net's Superstar K, South Korea's version of American Idol. Also joining Yellow Boyz on the Asian Hip Hop Summit 10 Year Anniversary Tour will be Lyricks from Northern Virginia, Decipher from Philadelphia, Jackie Chain from Huntsville, and Smokes from Milwaukee.
Yellow Boyz and company will kick off their tour on October 1 at the R.E.A.C.H Conference (UNC, Duke, NC State) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. They will also perform at the A3C Hip Hop Festival in Atlanta on October 7 and will make additional stops, besides Princeton, at Rutgers University, Boston University, and many other schools.
