I understand the stigma against viewing idol rappers as "real rappers," but I don't agree with it. There are some idol rappers that actually have good skill I just think that they really aren't given good opportunity to develop it and/or showcase it and possibly can't show it due to the idol image they have to uphold and because it is a little risky considering a lot of idol groups fans are in their teens, who are possibly more interested in the members looking good and making music about love. I also think the stigma exists because some of these idol rappers are told "your going to be the rapper," and are taught from then on.
Mino was a rapper before he was an idol. In his case, I think he is a rapper that happens to be in an idol-ish group, not an idol that was made to be a rapper. He has a understanding of rap world.
I am happy for Mino yet worried at the same time with all the attention he is getting. I feel that should he happen to do poorly one time, the stigma will come back and like "well he is an idol, so this was to be expected." I hope that the skill and talent he has portrayed doesn't get undermined because he is an idol. I mean look at Zico! He is an idol and is recognized as a rapper, and they both have similar rap backgrounds.
Well, anyways, Idol Rappers 화이팅! SMTM4 contestants 화이팅!
