Fans Think They Know Who Suga's Diss Track Is About & It's Not Who You Expect
By now, you've probably seen all the trends on social media about Agust D's comeback. BTS' Suga finally brought back his other persona for an epic 10-track mixtape D-2. The project's lead single is "Daechwita," which also came with a music video. After reading its lyrics, fans are asking whether Agust D's "Daechwita" is a diss track. Suga may not have name-dropped anybody, but his past comments could give fans more information about who or what the song is really directed at.
Ahead of the release of D-2, Big Hit Entertainment did a countdown on Twitter teasing something was coming soon. Each day, they posted a mysterious black image that became clearer as the week went by. On May 21, they tweeted out the picture with "D-2" on it, as expected. Fans thought it meant the surprise would arrive in two days, but in a twist of events, it was actually the title of Suga's new mixtape.
Not only did fans get ten new songs the very next day, but they also got a music video for "Daechwita." In the song, Suga flaunts his achievements and seemingly calls someone out for not believing he would succeed, among some other pretty pointed remarks.
"Shut up, yeah, you calling me a pup, yeah/ I was born a tiger," he rapped in one verse. In another, he says, "Remember my name/ All sh*t-talk they got no game/ Off with their heads," are just some of the most pointed lyrics.
It only takes a quick Twitter search to see the various big names some fans and critics believe the disses in the track are directed at, but short of a specific name mentioned, there's no way to know exactly who Suga is referring to in his lyrics.
But a 2013 interview he did with Arena may give insight to what the song is really about. That year, BTS debuted with "No More Dream," and some of its lyrics were considered controversial. Suga made it clear he wasn't directing the lyrics toward anyone specifically, and his lyrics were more about expressing his own self-confidence and worth.
"It's not a diss intended to diss. Rather than criticizing a specific someone, I'm just expressing my self-confidence," he said, according to a fan translation by @u4eakooks_net.
But he did slip in this telling comment: "If it bothered you, that's your problem." So, basically: If the shoe fits...
With this in mind, "Daechwita" could be a general diss toward any of Suga's or BTS' haters. Suga has definitely come a long way since BTS' early days in 2013, so you can't blame him for being confident. But based on Suga's past comments, it seems like if you feel attacked, it's a you problem.
