Taipei, March 11 (CNA) Chengdu-based Hip Hop group Higher Brothers will perform in Taipei next month as part of their "Wish You Rich" concert tour, according to the organizers.

Concert and event organizers Live Nation Taiwan said Monday that the Chinese hip hop rapping quartet, which includes members MaSiWei, DZknow, Psy.P and Melo, are scheduled to perform at Legacy MAX in Taipei's Xinyi District on April 18.

In February, Higher Brothers, which are known for their Chengdu dialect rhymes, released their 14-tracked "Five Stars" sophomore crossover album that included many names from the hip hop scene in the United States, including Soulja Boy, Denzel Curry and Schoolboy Q.

The album follows the group's 2017 debut album "Black Cab," which showcased the rise of southwest China's trap music scene to hip hop followers worldwide.

Prior to the release of their debut album, the group also recorded a self-titled mixtape in 2016.

The "Wish You Rich" tour will kick off this month in Asia with concerts lined up from the end of April throughout May in North America, before the group heads to Europe later in the year.

Tickets for the show on April 18 in Taipei will be available for purchase starting Sunday, according to Live Nation Taiwan.

The performance will mark the group's third visit to Taiwan.
