Suga expressed his deep admiration for NELL's music, which often conveys a profound sense of melancholy and introspection. He revealed how, during his youth, he grappled with feelings of anger and disillusionment towards the world and the system. However, through his mixtapes and music, he found an outlet to channel these negative emotions.
Reflecting on his evolution as an artist, Suga shared, "During D-DAY, compared to D-2, people said a lot of that rage was gone, but I don't think that can be helped. I don't think I need to bring back the emotions I've already dealt with." He continued, "Back then, I was distressed and wanted to quit, but those thoughts went away through music, so now I'm thankful for those times. It was thanks to those moments that I can do all this now."
