“A CONVICTED Criminal” — Netizens Have Mixed Feelings About BTS Jimin’s Upcoming Collaboration Track
BTS‘s Jimin just announced a new musical collaboration, but not everyone is excited about the new track because of the other featured artists.
On May 9, Jimin was announced to be featured on “Angel Pt. 1,” a track for the upcoming Fast & Furious film Fast X. The track will also feature American musicians Kodak Black, NLE Choppa, JVKE, and Muni Long.

Fast & Furious is a massive franchise that has released films for over twenty years, becoming a household name. While this is not Jimin’s feature American in a Hollywood film’s soundtrack, fans were excited as this is a new original song.
Jimin proved himself as a solo artist with his debut album, archived many success, broke the records and setting the new ones and now he’s going to release a song with other artists like Kodak Black for a Hollywood movie. this is a legendary move

thats a HUGE opportunity for jimin, fast and furious is literally one of the most successful film franchise of all time, and is also known for its amazing OSTs that include a lot of collaborations between artists. we should stick to that part, that's it.

Many acknowledged the line-up for the track was somewhat “random,” discussing the fact in a joking manner.

Others have more serious concerns with some of the artists that are on the song.
NLE Choppa, a 20-year-old rapper, has been accused of domestic abuse by the mother of his daughter. The artist even confirmed in tweets that he attempted to shoot her, abet “before she got pregnant,” and was accused by the woman of shooting at a house his daughter was in.
BITCH I SHOT AT THAT HOE BEFORE SHE GOT PREGNANT

Kodak Black has had numerous legal issues throughout his life, and the most discussed is the accusations of rape that he went to trial over. In 2017, a teenage girl described a violent experience with the rapper that she did not consent to.
Ultimately, Kodak Black entered a plea deal, pleading guilty to a lesser charge of first-degree assault and battery in a sexual case.
The rapper was sentenced to 46 months in federal for lying on background-check paperwork related to firearms — only serving ten months before former president Donald Trump commuted his sentence.
Many fans have voiced their concerns, stating they cannot support this release.
Trying to make us look like the bad people when Kodak black is a convicted rapist is actually insane the internet has rotted your minds pic.twitter.com/ENoQqMwzPw

Armys are pissing me off. You people only care about fan wars and it’s irritating to me. Kodak is a rapist, Nle Choppa is a creep, people are allowed to be disgusted about it openly. Stop asking Armys to throw away their morals cause they’ll “drag us” be so fr

kodak black is a known rapist and jimin should not be on a collaboration with him. whether it's jimin's fault, bighit's, the producers', or someone else's does not matter – at the end of the day it will be jimin's name and voice on a track with a KNOWN RAPIST.
