On January 13, 2024, the streets of Nagoya pulsed with the rhythm of Japanese rap due to an unexpected and electrifying event: a free open-air concert by AK-69 and ¥ellow Bucks. This impromptu event, held at SAKAE HIROBA in Sakae, Nagoya, was not just a concert but also a surprise announcement for the single “NOROSHI” and their upcoming duo live “AK¥B” scheduled for February.

AK-69 and ¥ellow Bucks Warm the Heart of Nagoya

Over 1,500 fans flocked to witness the performance despite last-minute notice and cold. The stage, set up on the roof of a wrapped bus similar to the one used during their Shibuya show in 2021, provided a unique atmosphere under the winter sky. DJ RYOW, positioned in a DJ booth on the bus, warmed up the atmosphere before the stars’ arrival.

The entrance of ¥ellow Bucks onto the stage, to the sound of “WHO ARE U? 2022” played by DJ RYOW, triggered a thunderous ovation. AK-69 joined the stage during “WHO ARE U? 2009“, marking a spectacular encounter between the icons of Nagoya rap, with the famous “Chubu Electric Power MIR AI TOWER” as a backdrop. Their performance of “Bussin‘”, followed by their new song “NOROSHI“, brought the excitement to a climax. Although brief (just over 10 minutes), the performance left a lasting impression. The echoes of their music resonating through the bustling city center marked a significant moment for Nagoya’s rap scene.

After the show, AK-69 and ¥ellow Bucks expressed their gratitude and excitement:

¥ellow Bucks: “It was a guerrilla concert, but we were delighted to see so many people come. It was fun and matched perfectly with the spirit of our music”.
AK-69 added: “It was a moving moment to be together in our hometown. Our feelings, combined with the landscape of Nagoya, heightened our anticipation for our February 24th concert”.

Next Event: The “AK¥B” Duo Live

The next big step for this dynamic duo is their special live “AK¥B“, held at Nippon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya on February 24, 2024. The show will start at 6:00 PM. Although some tickets are already sold, tickets are still available through various game guides.
