BTS (방탄소년단)’s leader “Rap Monster (랩몬스터)” changes his stage name to “RM”.
On November 13, Rap Monster announced that he is changing his stage name from “Rap Monster”, which he have used for about 5 years since 2012, to “RM” on the BTS’s official fan cafe.
Below is his letter posted on the fan cafe:
I have used “Rap Monster” as my stage name for about 5 years since the end of 2012.
However, BTS Rap Monster sounds a bit long, and I realized that the name does not match with the songs I will perform as well as the songs I have performed for 5 years.
At some point, I also started to call myself “Rap Mon” or “RM” instead of “Rap Monster”.
So I want to change my stage name to “RM”, which is better fit to the music I personally pursue and embraces more diverse music styles.
Some of you may have guessed this because I have already released several songs and mixtapes as in the name of “RM”.
You may feel unfamiliar to my new stage name, or may be not used to calling me “RM”, but I sincerely hope you to be delighted with my decision to make a new start as “RM” after a long time of deep thought.
Thank you so much!
