That’s how hard he worked to earn during his trainee days! In fact, this is not it. Suga worked two more part-time jobs about which not much is known. It was during the pizza delivery that our young rapper got into an accident and damaged his shoulders.

The K-pop celebrity also dominated the Billboard charts when he released his second mixtape, D-2, on May 22nd 2020. The mixtape talks about Suga’s struggle with friendship as well as gives a hope to the listeners by sharing his story. One of his lines, ‘may your trials end in full bloom’ hits very hard to every listener.
