Brand New Music traces its roots back to IC Entertainment which was founded in 2003 by veteran rapper Rhymer. After changing the name to Brand New Production and merging with Cho PD’s label, Future Flow, in 2009 Brand New Stardom was born.
After two years together, Cho PD and Rhymer agreed to go their separate ways. Followed by Verbal Jint, Tae Hye Young, BNR, Keeproots, A-Man and Miss S, Rhymer went on to found Brand New Music. Today the label boasts the talent of Verbal Jint, Bumkey, San E, Kanto, Miss S, Phantom and Troy, among others.
