Announced on November 22nd, Los Angeles based rapper, Dumbfoundead will kick off 2017 with an extensive North American trek! Titled after his most recent release, the ‘WE MIGHT DIE Tour’ will hit 13 cities across US and Canada during January and February, and DFD is bringing Year of the Ox and DJ Zo along for the ride. Dj Zo, also known as Zomanno, is an LA based DJ who spins everywhere from South Korea to SoHo to underground parties, and hosts a guest DJ spot on DJCityTV. Year of the Ox, a hip hop duo composed of rappers Lyricks and JL, are Virginia natives whose hard-hitting flow netted their 2015 release, ‘Seven Rings,’ over a million YouTube views, nearly 200k streams on SoundCloud, and almost 10 million views on TeamBackPack.
Dumbfoundead, also known as Old Boy Jon, DFD, Dummy, or more mundanely as Jonathan Park, is an Argentinian-born Los Angeles native who entered the scene around age 11, after seeing a host of old school emcees and deciding to educate himself on freestyling and the roots of hip hop. After more years of developing his skills and working with fellow underground artists, he began growing a fanbase through rap battles on YouTube, where he’s gone viral a few times. In early 2010 he published Jam Session 2.0 with eight other musicians across the globe that garnered the attention of Los Angeles networks and his 2015 rap battle at Blackout 5 versus Conceited remains the most popular battle on KOTD.TV with over 5 million views. He’s collaborated with both American and Korean hip hop artists including Anderson .Paak, Epik High, Jay Park, as well as DJ Zo and Year of the Ox, the latter of whom feature on his new album.
‘We Might Die,’ including the previously released single ‘Harambe’ that hit number one on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 Chart, dropped on November 10th. You can check the full album out or download for free on his website. You can also find tour packages, including the chance for Dumb to record your voicemail or give you a tour of his stomping grounds in LA’s Koreatown, which are only available for a limited time.
