<cr> Greetings, people of BBase! I am Jay, and today we will be conclusively reviewing the rap of the all-talented, International Playboy, Golden Maknae, Kookie himself - Jeon Jungkook. For a long time, he has been known to ARMYs as an all-around talented figure, seeing as he can sing amazingly, dance amazingly, and guess what - he can rap too. Kookie rapping "Lonely" by Outsider, a Korean-speed rapper: As seen in this clip, he has the ability to rap - seeing as he is able to somewhat keep up with Outsider's rap, and his words are understandable and not just "blah-blah-blah." Let us move on to some of his verses from BTS music. His verse in War of Hormone: His verse is definitely classified as rap, even though there is a definite use of pitch. A way to determine whether a verse is rap or not is to imagine it without music/a beat behind it. Most vocals sound a little weird without background music, not counting A Cappella, seeing as when singers sing A Cappella they generally sing at a lower pitch or change the way the song is sung. This verse is somewhat of a tonal rap verse. His verse in N.O.: Though this verse is a little short, it obviously categorized as rap. Once again he uses vocal inflections (raising the pitch at the end of a line) which is a skill used by many rappers - and it helps that he can reach even higher pitches than most rappers (cause he sings too!) When he sang Namjoon's parts of Run: Even when Namjoon sing-raps these verses, it is barely rapping. Due to the certain vocal inflections Namjoon makes, it can be considered rap - and perhaps with Jungkook too but I don't think so. This is also a weird case due to the fact that I can imagine it sounding both just fine and a little weird without the beat in the background. I'm conflicted. Jungkook raps along with the rap line: Before you watch, his part is closer to the end. There is no debate that this is rap - and it meshes perfectly with J-Hope and Suga's rap as well. No more words. AND NOW... the verse you've all been waiting for: His impeccable verse on "We Are Bulletproof Pt. 2": Ireumeun Jungkook! By far his most popular rap verse, and a favorite of all ARMYs, even if their bias isn't JK. No words are needed here either. He uses pitch changes and vocal inflections while also rapping in a spoken-rap style. Last but not least, his verse in No More Dream: Once again he used tonal inflections to his advantage and this was a legendary rap performace following BTS' rap-line. TO MAKE IT EVEN BETTER - GUESS HOW OLD HE WAS DURING THIS???? 16. 16 years old, already a legend. ---- That is all for today folks - feel free to discuss Jungkook's rap below. Disclaimer: I did not share every rap performance, rap verse, or rap video he has ever done. Please share below, as this thread is for discussion. Enjoy.
