Rapper Sleepy previously appeared on MBN’s entertainment program ‘Voice Trot’ and showed off his talent as a trot singer by showing a new genre of rap trot. Eventually, he debuted as a trot singer with his second character called ‘Sung-won’, named after his real name’Kim Sung-won’.
His debut song, ‘It’s Because of Money’, won the 2nd place ‘Sun’ in the trot audition program ‘Mr. Trot’, and Young-tak, who emerged as the hot star of the year, became a hot topic in production. Young-tak presented a rock sound-based rap trot song that could show off Sleepy’s strong charm. The lyrics that feel sadness for money and life are also attractive points of this song.
