Here are some rumors & speculations: Fans on Twitter have been freely sharing their ideas and recommendations for what YG Entertainment has lined up for Project 2.
Here are some of the speculations that are among the most common.
Yet-to-debut rookie group iKON’s member Bobby won Show Me The Money 3, and he is supposed to be releasing an album as part of the prize.
However, no album plans have been announced, so fans are anxious to see him appear in as many projects as possible. Bobby was recently the featured artist on Hi Suhyun’s song “I’m Different,” as well as Epik High’s comeback track “Born Hater,” and his name is being tossed around with rumors for HIPHOP Project 2.
iKON’s B.I and WINNER’s Mino are also popular forerunners in rumors.
Both also appeared in “Born Hater” and YG CEO Yang Hyun Suk has previously said that B.I has been busy working on new music .
There is also a slim possibility that the three will be the remaining Big Bang members T.O.P, Seungri, and Daesung, as Big Bang has not released any group or collaborative music since 2012’s Still Alive album.
Fanmade memes express Big Bang fans’ longing for the five members to reunite and release new music.
Other names rumored on Twitter are 2NE1’s Minzy and well-known female trainees.
The HIPHOP Project is one of several recent releases from YG Entertainment.
Most recently, the label revealed Hi Suhyun, a collaboration duo that includes solo artist Lee Hi and Akdong Musician’s Suhyun.
