Pioneers of the Asian American hip-hop movement, Far East Movement have been hustling in the game long before most of the AA artists you see today. Their energy is contagious, their style is off the hook, and their music is fly. Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif, and DJ Virman continue to pave the way for not only hip-hop, but for the Asian American movement as a whole. Their singles have been heard in clubs all across the country and featured on hit shows such as “So You Think You Can Dance,” and “America’s Best Dance Crew.” They are hands down thee most successful Asian American group in the Land of the Free and they continue to astound their fans with breaking news and kick ass music.
Recently wrapping up their tour with Grammy-nominated, Electro/Hip-Hop group, LMFAO the fellas of FM announced their biggest achievement yet;Far East Movement officially signed with Cherrytree Records, home to mega-artists like Lady Gaga, Tokio Hotel, Keane, Space Cowboy and more. On March 16th, 2010 FM announced tour dates in Japan with multi-platinum artist, Lady Gaga.
