At the beginning of the New Year, VIXX’s Ravi teased on his Instagram that beginning on January 4th, he would be releasing information on his mixtape titled ‘REBIRTH.’ Ravi is known as VIXX’s rapper, producer and composer, one part of VIXX LR and he even made an appearance on this past season of ‘Show Me The Money.’
The release of his first mixtape comes as a shock to many fans. Ravi has uploaded songs to his Soundcloud in the past, his response to Bobby of iKON’s diss bringing the most attention. He has not released songs worth be called a mixtape, but fans are awaiting to see what he brings to the table. His short lived appearance on ‘Show Me The Money’ made him known as the rapper who winks, but did not really show his true potential as a rapper, as most still look at him as an idol.
In August of 2015, Ravi took on VIXX LR with the release of VIXX’s first unit group, and he and fellow member Leo worked hard to compose an album with their own work and compositions. With VIXX having a comeback recently with the release of their album ‘Chained Up’ a majority of the album was produced by Ravi, he wrote most of the lyrics for the album, and even came up with the concept of ‘love slaves’. Ravi is more than just an idol rapper, he is an artist that puts time and thought into each of his compositions, and for this past Christmas, VIXX member Hyuk wished that Ravi would leave his studio just to return to the dorm to sleep.
The first pre-release on his mixtape is called ‘Where Should I Go’ featuring Microdot, and in the caption Ravi posted on Instagram, the whole song was purely his own work.
With the release of his first mixtape, his fans are patiently waiting to see what he brings. They want to see if he can be called more than an idol rapper, but the artist that he is striving to be.
