Suga is getting recognition for his rap skills in America as well!
Fuse TV listed Suga (Agust D)'s mixtape song "Agust D" as one of the top 20 mixtape releases in 2016. They wrote, "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."
Congratulations to Suga!
