Artist Name: G-Dragon
Group Members: G-Dragon (Kwon Ji Yong)
Record label (if known): YG Entertainment

G-Dragon first entered the music industry at the tender age of five! But the record company terminated the group’s contract after only a Christmas album. He was scouted by SM at eight and trained with them until he was thirteen, when he moved to a contract with YG Entertainment after having been spotted by an artist signed with YG at the time.
After a number of years training with YG and being involved in projects for other artists, G-Dragon debuted as the leader and one of two rappers in Big Bang.
In 2009, G-Dragon ramped up his solo efforts and made official solo releases. One of these (Heartbreaker), whilst commercially successful, embroiled G-Dragon in an alleged plagiarism scandal.
G-Dragon has had multiple solo releases since and has also released as a duo with fellow Big Bang rapper TOP.
G-Dragon is an accomplished rapper, with a mainstream pop sound to his rap. His solo material is primarily rap-heavy hip hop, although he has released some more melodic songs along the way.
