OMFG THIS FUCKER CALLED MAD CLOWN WHERE TO START??? Basically mad clown was a judge on no mercy and ruined #gun’s chances of debuting with monsta x. Like the shit fucked with me hard. Im just now getting to a point where i can talk about it openly ok. This is the first time i fucking cried over some shit like this ok.
mad clown really brought down #gun with his comments. i feel some of the judges really did judge based off of personal reasons. I recall k.will even saying “I want him out!” and picking up a blurred name tag/face and tossing it aside. All the judges liked #gun and his performances. He got many complements and even was deemed the best of his group by the just music boys (nochang & vasco) who said that everyone else sucked (which i agree bc they had a really hard time in the studio with them lol). #gun’s only downfall is that he couldnt dance, yet he performed really well throughout their dance stages!
So back to the mad c thing. Well basically he told #gun to his face that he doesnt think he can rap and basically expressed this opinion whenever he could. #gun is the ONLY person of the show that was told that he wasnt talented by a judge. Even with all the bad, terrible performances the trainees were never told, “you can’t dance”, “you cant sing”, “you cant rap”, “youre unattractive”. HOWEVER #gun was told ALL of that TO HIS FACE at some point or another. Even if it wasnt meant to do any harm, literally no one was put down for their talent or lack of with the exception of gun. Even Vasco, Nochang, and Junggigo seemed confused and appalled (maybe a bit angry lmfao nochang said that he should diss him in the song lmfao) to hear that mad clown said that to him. Anyway, mad clown said gun isnt good bc his style is very “old school”. which lets be honest that really isnt a problem at all. I think mad clown just doesnt like #gun for his own personal reasons. someone even suggested that its bc their flow is someone similar and mad clown could feel a bet defensive about that… idk. But because of his comment it seemed to get pretty tense, even though a lot of ppl really enjoyed gun, mad clown never really said much to contradict his beliefs of gun being bad. Even when I.M was introduced the one thing that mad clown said after hearing I.M rap FOR THE FIRST TIME is “i think you rap better than #gun.”
#gun is someone that we all was routing for, not because he is jooheon’s best friend but bc he was super talented and always doing his best and working hard. He was forced to always walk in other ppl’s shadow and was often compared to jooheon. NO ONE ON THE SHOW WAS COMPARED TO OTHERS BUT #GUN! Jooheon vs. #gun was always the mentality. Even with other rappers on the show, even with the introduction of I.M none of them were compared with others. And sure as hell were not compared to jooheon. So when mad clown started to single out #gun it was apparent that something wasn’t right. Everyone knew gun was good so why would mad c say that he isnt? Just man FUCK MAD CLOWN OMG
edit: AND I FOR-FUCKING-GOT THE PART WHEN THE CEO OF BRAND NEW OFFERED #GUN A POSITION ON HIS LABEL IF HE DIDNT MAKE IT TO DEBUT!!!! i was like why would he even suggest that gun wouldnt make it??? but like low-and-behold, gun didnt make it! fucking scandalous
