Jay ParkDuring the interview, Jay Park was asked, "You are pretty much one of the hottest hip-hop artists in Korea. May I ask how much you make?"

Jay Park answered, "There are about 250 of my songs out there, and probably around 350 including songs that I featured."

He continued, "But I've never got paid for the songs that I featured. I never asked for it, because I already make enough money."

He went on, "When I featured for artists, I even covered sound engineering fees for them before. Let's just say that I make enough to afford that."

Jay Park said, "They may not be publicly known well, they are artists who I much support."

He continued, "There are so many talented artists who should deserve the spotlight. It's really sad seeing them not getting attention or being able to make good money."
 

Jay Park made debut as the leader of boy group 2PM in 2008.

After leaving 2PM in 2009, he debuted as a soloist and established his own labels AOMG and H1GHR MUSIC.
