[NEW RELEASES] SUDA
Label: Luminant Entertainment
Genre: Rap, Hip-hop
The term Suda translates as “a talkative person” in Korean. And as the rapper’s name would suggest, his upcoming album tells his personal story. Overall, its honest discourse on youth and its autobiographical lyrics are touching and heartfelt.
“Bukgajwa 349-17” is best to listen to from the beginning track, “349-17,” to the last, “The Door,” with the album composed like a novel with protagonists and a main plot.
The title song, “The Idol,” and “Bukgajwa” captivate to listeners with hard-hitting snares and bass beats. The renowned DJ HOOD also does his part to make Suda’s unique rapping style stand out, lending it a cynical feel - in this case, aimed toward the older generation.
Other artists feature on the album as well, including hip-hop duo Noise Mob, rapper JUSTHIS and singers DJ HOOD and Blnk Time, giving the record more depth of sound.
Throughout “Bukgajwa 349-17,” Suda seems to have completed his musical experience and shows off a mature rap style with overwhelming rhymes.
