Riley Helps Korean Boyband Star Launch U.s. Career

R&B hitmaker TEDDY RILEY has recruited hip-hop superstar SNOOP DOGG and singer/rapper T-PAIN to help former Korean boyband member JAY PARK break into the U.S. music charts.
Park rose to fame in Asia as part of 2PM, but he quit the group in 2009 and now the American-born singer and breakdancer is looking to make a name for himself Stateside.
He's won the backing of former Blackstreet star Riley and the producer has brought a couple of his famous pals onboard to boost Park's solo career.
And Riley's support has already helped Park to land a small film role in a movie about breakdancing.
Jason Lee, producer of Hype Nation, tells AllHipHop.com, "I scooped this guy up right away because he is an incredible talent and everybody wants to work with him in the U.S."
