The 31-year-old rapper talked about his relations to Big Hit Entertainment and its founder Bang Si Hyuk during an interview on March 31.
Basick said, "Bang Si Hyuk offered me to join a new hip-hop idol group. It was around the time they were preparing to debut BTS."
However, Basick revealed that he rejected the offer. He explained, "I never wanted to become an idol. At the time, I was taking time off of school and I was also thinking about marrying my girlfriend so it was hard for me to accept the contract."
Basick isn't the only one who was given the offer by Bang Si Hyuk. Basick shared, "Later on, I heard that Beenzino was also given an offer. If Beenzino did it then I probably would have too."
When asked what it would've been like if he did join BTS, Basick answered, "I believe BTS went through a lot of preparation and member changes. I think the current members are ideal."
