American news portal, Fuse TV have chosen BTS rapper Suga’s solo mixtape, ‘Agust D‘ as one of their ‘20 Best Mixtapes of 2016‘!
Min Yoongi also known as Suga is one of the popular rappers in Korea right now and this list just gave the hip hop artist a new achievement for being recognized in the rap game internationally.
“In their three years together, the members of BTS have broken away from the squeaky-safe K-pop world with mixtapes that allow them a totally free avenue to explore new topics and sounds. The band’s aggressive rapper Suga did this by adopting an entirely new persona, Agust D, through a tape that featured topics like his struggles with fame and depression.
Not only is Suga exploring new subject matter, but the music itself is ambitious, with the Agust D’s title track including a brilliant sample of James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” that would likely be super-expensive to clear for a regular album track. Call it unhinged K-pop.” –Jeff Benjamin
