    ""I think Stardom, he was suppose to debut with Block B, but his father noticed these things and pulled him out. Later on a while after Block B debuted, they also filed a lawsuit against the company and are now in Seven Seasons"

    haha true i guess but "And after Stardom screwed him over, I can't blame him for dissing Stardom. And it's not like he was mean about his diss per say. All he said is he doesn't like being compared to nugus. As much as I like Topp Dogg and EVol, they ARE nugus ( this is mostly Stardom's fault because it's a shit company) and Mino is genuinely much better than anyone in Stardom, thus it is disrespectful to Mino for media to compare him to them."

    yes they are indeed nugus and song mino is greater than them. but can you hear yourself? That its alright for him to step on their pride? If you think its disrespectful when mino got involved to toppdogg and evol because some reporter is linking them. Don't you think its more disrespectful when a hoobae jabs his sunbaes' pride not only as a rapper but a musician

    Hear myself? No, but i can see what I wrote. And you obviously don't see how contradicting your statement. Let me bring this to light then, child. If your so concerned about how mino called them out. Why didn't you notice he called out the judges too? huh? Oh, are they not people worth enough too? Those judges are artists too that he called out yet you simply concentrated on what. Evol, kidoh, yano, shiho and the others. Also. WHY do you completely disregard the fact mino was called out, SO FREAKING many times by other rappers that challenged him, and sarcastically talked about him?? did you not see that too? like wth. If you truly watched Show me the money, you would know and last but not last, if your judging someone for calling out others in a freaking RAP show/battle, please, lemme tell you, ITS NOT YOUR SHOW. go watch unpretty rapstar!. wait. that even might be too much for you!lmfao

    when the contestants called him out are you sure they are holding onto something more than just jealousy? By the way, on my other comment I said SUNBAES (that includes the judges)

    I know it was mentioned that his father pulled him out of Stardom because he didn't like their conditions and then even Block B left because of that reason. But, it could be Y2Y as well
