The inscription on the plaque read:

“This award has been given as a form of thanks and respect for helping Korea’s hip-hop scene advance and excel into the international sphere, and for his great influence on K-pop through the group Block B as well as individually.”

Zico has been prominent in the industry, both as a solo artist and as part of Block B. While he has a strong underground hip-hop reputation, he has also transformed his image to that of an urban R&B artist through songs such as “I am You, You are Me” and “It was Love”.

Congratulations to Zico for this huge career milestone!
