For the leader and rapper of BTS, Rap Monster seems like the awards just keep coming.
Ever since BTS’s comeback with the album of ‘The Most Beautiful Moment In Life (Part 2), they have been slaying charts as well as receiving awards on Music Shows with ‘RUN‘ and now, Rap Monster’s debut solo mixtape ‘RM‘ has been placed in Spin Magazine’s list of the ‘50 Best Hip Hop Albums of 2015‘ at #48!
‘RM‘ is the only Korean Hip Hop album to place on the list hence making it a huge achievement for the 21-year old rapper as he has ranked on the same list as several prominent names in hip hop including Rae Sremmurd, Dr. Dre, Future and A$AP Rocky. Rap Monster had earlier declared his role models to be Kanye West and A$AP Rocky, and this definitely is a personal triumph for him.
Spin Magazine have acknowledged the BTS leader’s skill, talent and efforts even stating that – “Rap Monster’s debut solo mixtape, RM, [shows that he] takes his chosen genre seriously.”
The highlights of the 10-track album include the singles ‘Monster‘, ‘Life‘, ‘I Believe‘ and the mixtape’s lead single ‘Do You‘. Check out the ‘Do You‘ MV below:
