The BTS rapper released his first mixtape via Soundcloud in 2016. With the mixtape came this intense and heavy track as a kind of introduction to Suga’s other alias, Agust D.

However, it really showcases his talent as a rapper and ability to seamlessly switch between his two personas.

2. ‘Interlude: Shadow’

While Suga is widely known for his intense rapping skills, this song gives fans a taste of his beloved vocals. This solo track focuses on the theme of rising to the top and the consequences of success. The song portrays that the life of a superstar is not all glitz and glamour, but also has its fair share of loneliness and darkness. ‘Interlude: Shadow’ is a powerful track with thought-provoking lyrics. One listen and you won’t be able to stop hitting the repeat button over and over again.

3. ‘Curiosities for: Seesaw’

Like many artists, Suga loves to add symbolism to his lyrics to provide more depth. Through this song, the BTS rapper likens a complicated relationship to a teetering seesaw that no one wants to get off. The 2018 track may have an upbeat melody and dance-inducing vibe, but its lyrics pierce your soul. The duality that this song contains is remarkable and deserves all praise.

6. ‘First Love’

‘First Love’ is something of a love song, but not one many might be used to. Instead of a person, Suga remembers an old piano from his childhood.

The power of music cannot be underestimated and one that many, including Suga, hold close to their hearts.

7. ‘Daechwita’

‘Daechwita’ is unique in that it employs traditional Korean instruments at the center of its modern beat. The hook is incredibly addictive and you might find yourself repeating the word “daechwita” for hours on end.
