Some controversy broke out when Lisa was listed while another famous YG idol rapper was unexpectedly not mentioned
Kpop idols are frequently exposed to prejudices since their talents, from singing to dancing, are sometimes regarded as inferior to those of solo artists or professional choreographers. A similar stereotype holds true for K-pop idol rappers since many of them are really talented yet are sometimes underestimated in comparison to underground rappers. However, some artists have genuinely captured the audience with their rap talents throughout time.
A post titled ‘Idols who have the best talents among idol rappers’ recently gained attention on a Korean online forum. This article only mentioned 3rd and 4th generation idols, and the OP picked seven names that he/she believes to have the best and most outstanding rapping abilities. Let’s take a look at the names that have been picked.
Jooheon (MONSTA X)
The OP also stated underneath the article that while the list may be imperfect, the seven people listed above deserved appreciation for their rapping skills. However, because it is a personal view, disagreements emerge. The most controversial thing still involves YG as BLACKPINK Lisa was mentioned while iKON Bobby was not. Accordingly, some argue that Bobby’s absence from the list is unacceptable, given that the male idol is known for winning ‘Show Me The Money 3’.
Furthermore, some internet users are perplexed as to why Lisa is also mentioned. Accordingly, the female idol is said to have attractive rapping abilities, but she should not be mentioned in the ‘best of the best’ list, especially since the list also includes Soyeon ((G)I -DLE’s presence. Netizens also pointed out that Lisa can’t write her own rap lyrics, something any true rapper should be able to do.
Some comments from Knet:
- Seriously, Suga is good at rapping, listening to Outro songs gives me goosebumps
- I think Song Mino is a bit better than the idols here.
- You know, Zico and Bobby are good at rapping and everyone knows it
- Aren’t iKON’s Bobby and Zico the most popular idol rappers???
- Why isn’t Bobby on this list? Bobby’s rapping is top notch.
- RM has been called a genius in the hip-hop world since he was young
- Jeon Soyeon is a genius, I hope she gets better ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅜㅜㅜ
- Don’t you consider Zico an idol? There were a lot of incidents, but he’s an idol, I think Zico is so cool when he raps
- I think Song Minho is a bit better than the idols here
- Zico, GD, Bobby?
- I like Mark, I’m curious about his solo album or solo song coming out someday and I’m already looking forward to it
- BTS is seriously good at rapping, RM Suga J-Hope
- Mark’s pronunciation is pretty good, Lisa’s rap style is my taste
- Lisa is good at rapping but I think she’s still not enough to make this list because Soyeon is also listed.
- Lisa isn’t exactly a rapper, she’s just an idol. She’s good at rapping, but she’s not a real rapper.
- Did the writer not mention Bobby because he became a father?
- The rapper needs to write her own lyrics first.
