My Favourite Idol Rappers

With popular rap survival shows, “Show Me The Money” and “Unpretty Rapstar” gaining popularity, idol rappers have become a hot topic.

Maybe, I anticipated them for too long or I was too hyped, but their debut did not blow my mind. It was not bad, but I expected a little bit more. Nevertheless, they are a group to watch out for because of the talented members and already large fan base.
