2020. 5. 24.



D-2 is the second mixtape released by South Korean rapper Suga under the alias Agust D, following the 2016 mixtape of the same name. The mixtape was released on May 22, 2020, and consists of ten tracks. Its lyrics share the rapper's viewpoint on the current world. It is the second full-length album for the artist in 2020, and the third individual release. Suga, along with the rest of BTS released their album Map of the Soul: 7 earlier in 2020, and in May 2020 Suga collaborated with the soloist IU on her track "Eight".


D-2 is, according to Suga, "A documentation of myself as a 28-year old", and a "documentation of myself from 2016 onwards". He has said that the mixtape is focused more on talking about the present, comparing it to his last mixtape, Agust D, which was more focused on telling the past. According to Billboard, the mixtape is largely about how it feels to be Suga in the present time. Inspiration for the album has also been drawn from the COVID-19 quarantine, and the themes of traditional Korean storytelling and music were, according to the artist, an accident that developed naturally into the pansori storytelling and kkwaenggwari percussion. According to the artist, these themes developed naturally from wanting to sample the sound of a real Daechwita, a piece of traditional Korean military music. These Daechwita elements are clearly audible in the song of the same name and its music video, released on the same day as the mixtape. According to Suga, the many questions the album raises about society are for the listener to answer, and he is merely putting forth the question.

D-2 features collaborators such as MAX, NiiHWa, and Kim Jong-wan as co-writers and singers, along with BTS's RM, who has worked closely with Suga previously. The large-scale collaboration present in the album is not new to the rapper, as he has previously collaborated through both BTS and himself with artists such as Halsey and IU in the year prior to the release of the mixtape.
