(AllHipHop News) Rap executive Damon Dash has set his sights on Asia and is launching a new branch of his DD172 brand in Hong Kong.
According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, Dame Dash has partnered with Hong Kong rapper MC Yan and American business woman Shelly Pecot, who now resides in the country.
According to the article, their goal is to launch DD172 as a “talent incubator,” much like the business he opened in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York in 2010.
The business will incubate the talent and host local acts, as well as international artists.
“The point of these shows – these collaborations – is to bridge the gap between Western and Eastern music,” Damon Dash told the Wall Street Journal. “Music and break any barrier, be a cultural or language.”
Damon Dash and his new business partners are currently seeking space in Hong Kong to launch the DD172 brand.
