South Korean artist Rap Monster is the leader of the group Bangtan Sonyeondan (BTS) which translates in English as Bulletproof Boy Scouts. The group has been making huge waves in both South Korea and America, really putting the K-POP style of music on the map.
Though Recently Rap Monster has broken away from the group a bit, deciding to team up with some American hip hop artist to create a whole new sound. Rap Monster’s most recent Collab was with Wale on their new single “Change.”
Interestingly enough the collaboration came rather unexpectedly, stemming from a simple tweet sent out by Wale a few months, after hearing Rap Monster rap over the instrumental to his 2011 single “Illest Bitch”. The duo decided to drop not only the song this week but a full music video as well, its definitely clear that Wale has been super busy this year.
The single is already gaining huge attention especially because of Wales “racist police” lines and other rather politically-charged verses on the track. The track is being seen as a great was for Rap Monster to begin the North American part of his BTS’ tour which kicks off.
