AOMG is a South Korean hip hop record label that was founded by singer and rapper Jay Park in 2013.[1] The label represents artists including Loco, Gray, Simon Dominic, Woo Won-jae, Hoody, Elo, Ugly Duck, and Cha Cha Malone.[2]

History[edit]

Above Ordinary Music Group (AOMG) is a well known Korean hip-hop label originating from the "Art of Movement" Seattle-based B-Boying group which Jay Park joined in 2003 with members such as Dial Tone, Junior, and Cha Cha Malone. Jay Park founded AOMG in late September 2013, and he initially signed composer Jun Goon, singer, and producer Gray, and Cha Cha Malone, a producer and dancer with Jay Park's dance crew Art of Movement.[3] The label had its launch party on October 10, 2013, at "The A" in Seoul with Ben Baller as the host.[4] The same month, the label released its first album, Gray's mini-album, Call Me Gray.[5]

Artists Elo, Loco, Ugly Duck, DJ Wegun, DJ Pumkin, and Hoody joined AOMG over the next two years.[6]

In March 2014, Simon Dominic announced that he had joined AOMG as co-CEO several months after his departure from his former label Amoeba Culture.[7]

In January 2016, South Korean media company CJ E&M announced that it had formed a strategic partnership with AOMG.[8] CJ E&M said in a statement that it would "support" AOMG with distribution and marketing, while AOMG would continue to control its music.[1]
