The singer, rapper and producer, born Kwon Ji Yong, is the leader of one of K-Pop's most popular acts and known for a futuristic hybrid of K-Pop, hip-hop and modern R&B.

The New Censorship. The Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC) did most of the ground breaking in this area, with its highly publicized campaign to label records with "explicit" rock lyrics. Now Ralphs, a leading Southland supermarket chain, is getting into the act, according to Bob Guccione Jr.
