Career[edit]

Chong's professional music career started in Los Angeles during the early 1990s, producing local rap groups such as Baby G, The Funky Few, and Soul Selection. He was one of the three original members of the group "SOLID" (as well as the writer and producer), which was the first R&B group in South Korea with record sales exceeding 4 million. Chong then shifted his focus to the Asian music scene by writing and producing songs for various artists in Asia. He went on to write and produce for many international artists like Coco Lee, Kim Gun-mo, Shin Seung-hun, Stanley Huang and LA BOYZ.[2][3]

In 2003 he also took part in launching the first hip hop entertainment company in Taiwan, MACHI Entertainment. He was also the first Korean American ever to be nominated for the Best Producer of the Year at the Golden Melody Awards and won various awards for albums, two of which were Stanley Huang and Nicky Lee who won the Best Male Artist of the Year award at the 2005 and 2006 Golden Melody Awards respectively.[4][5] In 2010, he helped coordinate the collaboration project between JYJ, Kanye West, and Rodney Jerkins.[6]

In 2011, he founded the hip-hop/R&B group Aziatix.[7]
