Oooo wow. Congrats to everyone~ Do you know more about what the book is, exactly?

 

And yeah, I like when Rapmon talks about his perspective on hip hop, and reflects on how it fits into his own life and dreams--and the varieties of challenges that come with that (internal ones like addressing one's own ignorance, and external ones like idol prejudice). I go back to one of his past interviews from time to time, and I like how he expresses his thoughts so that I can feel his passion and respect for this music. So if there's more from him that I can read, I'm excited for it!  :ohbi:

Really proud and happy for him. I think what he said is pretty much aligned with how he always talks about his career. I think it's been hard for him to define his passion and career in the past--something I relate to--but he's so smart and self-aware that he's figured it out. I'm sure it's an ongoing struggle, but he doesn't let anyone else define him so he has the freedom to express himself. He's taking the best from the hip hop and idol worlds and is forging his own path alongside Bangtan.

Suga isn't there yet, but he could be eventually. We'll see how his mixtape is received. Just be happy for Joon--recognition for him is recognition for BTS.

Thanks for the link. I hadn't seen that interview yet for some reason.

when i first saw this on instagram, i was like ohmygosh rap mon  :shock:

congrats to rap mon -- glad his talent and rap skills are being recognized  :datass:

 

zico was expected -- even if you don't like him as a person, you really can't deny his skills as a rapper and producer

I'm happy RM was featured. Can't wait for the rest of his section to be translated.

I have a feeling there might be more volumes. There's quite a few peeps that were left out. And it'd be nice to see some more female MCs featured as well.

The book contains autobiographies + interviews for the rappers. Not every rapper is going to be in the book, only the ones who agreed to tell their story.

 

For Zico, he talks about his childhood, how he started rapping and his future aspirations as a producer.

Suga time will come. Rapmon's mixtape brought him so much recognition in Korea, I'm sure Suga's mixtape will do the same!

i hope so to both of these statements >:^( they're both so fucking talented but sometimes i kind of feel like non-fans only give rap mon the credit. it just gets frustrating as a yoongi stan and an army in general.
