Yesterday (April 4),Suga released the full version of his ‘Agust D’ mixtape available on streaming services for the first time. The project was previously missing the song ‘Intro : DT sugA’ and ‘Agust D’ due to an sample clearance issue with James Brown’s ‘It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World’.
Meanwhile, the BTS member will star in a new Disney+ documentary called Suga: Road to D-Day. According to the streaming service, the film will follow Suga on a “musical journey” as he travels the globe “in search of inspiration in the form of new sounds and experiences”.
