The rapper/producer once again was involved in all the songwriting/lyrics for the album. D-2 documents “his life from when he first started doing music, up until his current emotional state.”

The title track “Daechwita” samples traditional Korean military music and uses traditional Korean instruments alongside trap beats. While the music video is set in a royal palace as Agust D portrays two different characters pit against each other.

His fellow BTS members, Jin and Jungkook are also briefly featured in the music video for “Daechwita”. While RM is featured on a separate track on D-2 titled “Strange” which “points at the oddity of the current society.”

Other features on D-2 include “Burn It (feat. MAX)”, “Dear my friend (feat. Kim Jong Wan of NELL),” and “28 (feat. NiiHWA).”

Agust D D-2 can be found on Orchard, Soundcloud, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, Google Music, and Amazon!

Agust D ‘Daechwita’ English translated lyrics:

Daechwita Daechwita play it loud Daechwita

Glitter glitter look at my crown glitter
Remember remember days gone by remember
We so fly we so fly private jet we so fly

Yeah uh, born a slave but now a king
Berserk tiger Gwanghae flow
Born in a ditch but rise up a dragon
That’s the way I live
Sorry but don’t worry
I got lots to lose
Shove the past into a rice chest
I’m about to dine on what I know is mine

Shut up, yeah, you calling me a pup, yeah
I was born a tiger I ain’t no weak pill-popper like you
Pathetic fucks putting on a talent show
Not gonna lie what a shitshow
I got no pretensions just kill ‘em all
Ain’t no exceptions I watch you fall

Flexing I got none
I don’t need one
Who’s the king who’s the boss
You all know my name
All shit-talk they got no game
Off with their heads

Daechwita Daechwita play it loud Daechwita
Daechwita Daechwita
Daechwita Daechwita play it loud Daechwita

Hit this town then cut and run in a jet
This country’s too small to hold me in yet
Woo, who says time is money
My time is worth more than that
Tic tok, got a stick up your ass
I’m about to spit in your face

Revenues keep going up-up-up-up-up-up and up
Everyday, Bang PD keeps dancing on-on-on-on-on-on and on
I’m so thankful I’m a genius
That’s your excuse for popping pills, cry me a river you just got no skills

I got everything I wanted, what more’ll make me feel contented
I wanted clothes clothes, then money money, then goal goal now what’s next
Yeah what’s next, here comes my reality check there’s nowhere higher
I only looked up and now I want to look down and put my feet on the ground

I’m a king I’m a boss
Remember my name
All shit-talk they got no game
Off with their heads
I’m a king I’m a boss
You all know my name
All shit-talk they got no game
Off with their heads

Daechwita Daechwita play it loud Daechwita
Daechwita Daechwita
Daechwita Daechwita play it loud Daechwita
