Outside of music, fashion is the area in which G-Dragon – real name Kwon Ji Yong – has received substantial press for his radical manner of dress. 2013 was the end of a four-year gap without full-length releases from G-Dragon, with the drop of Coup D'Etat marking G-Dragon's second studio album, which brought on a star-studded list of producers including Diplo, Baauer, Boys Noize and Siriusmo."
