Today, Mudo's stage with Song Mino X Haha
had General Yi Sunsin as their theme

t/n: bit of background so you guys can understand the implication of his lyrics better:
basically Mudo invited a bunch of hip hop artists to sing about Korea's history, the theme "General Yi Sunsin" is about one of the greatest naval commander in the Joseon dynasty (during Japanese invasion). Even though he never received naval training, he remained undefeated in all his battles despite always being outnumbered. One of his greatest achievement was being able to defeat a naval battle with 13 ships of his against 133 Japanese ships. Sidenote: he also revived turtle ships, which Mino rapped about in his lyrics :)

Mino's infinity challenge lyrics explanation :

t/n: the OP didn't put the lyrics in order

I fly because I'm a bird (this can also be heard as "The country (nara) is in a state of war/turbulence (nansae)", I'm a bird is written "nan sae", flying is written "nal-a-ga")
Heroes come out (there's a "saying" in Korean "난세의 영운" which means, heroes who will appear during wartime/ turbulent times)

On the current country but it's a red ocean
Before severe winter comes gather as one, in front of Yi Sunsin's statue (reference to the candlelight rally, where people gathered in front of General Yi Sunsin's statue to perform and dance in protest against the president)

Rise up Rise up, until it gets blown out, burn it (Until Park Geunhye gets blown out, they will still continue to protest with the candlelight rally)

I'm scared I'm scared, I'm sea sick I'm sea sick (Sewol ferry incident)
I'm not sure, father tell me the answer (referring to the truth behind "7 missing hours" of the Sewol incident, where Park Geunhye went missing for 7 hours after the Sewon incident)

My shoes aren't designer, but they're straw shoes (reference to Choi Soonsil's Prada shoes)

Let it be gained from fighting 10 attendants (reference to Chung Yoon-hoi (one of Park Geunhye's business men) and his 10 attendants leaking official documents including the fact that Park Geunhye was missing for 7 hours after Sewol incident)

Even though we aren't weak, we stand straight up properly (Talking about the blue house's Viagra=drug to make you erect, it can also we read as "we don't do drugs but we stand up straight", no need to expand on this one 👀(yak=drugs and it's the same writing as yak=weak))

It's turning, it's turning out well, Hey yah! (Hye-yah/Park Geunhye)
You turned me into a fool, turned me into a fool, Ha yah! (Haya=resignation)
Risking death made my survive

Gods of humility did not die
and we grab the furry sense of duty
Even if wounds ends with regrets, 
let it be gained from fighting 10 attendants
(by taking the first characters of the nouns(?) you get "미신불사상유십이" which is a saying meaning "God is not dead. There are still 12 ships left." which alludes to Yi Sunsin's battle where he defeated 12 Japanese ships by feigning escape)

Song Mino is seriously good at writing lyrics. Of course rapping is subjective, so his style might be hit or miss,,, I seriously got goosebumps when I watched his "Shoot" stage. When it turned red, daebak. He's such a lyrical genius, but his company is not managing him right

Song Mino gives me such a good impression, I'm a VIP and Bigbang takes care of him so well when they're together. His personality gives off good vibes and he's pleasant, kind and considerate. His personalities are straight up my style, his rap is good and he's handsom too. He's the one I like the most after Bigbang
