Up-Close with Starship Entertainment’s Favorite Rapper, Mad Clown: Profile, Song Collaborations, Marriage, and More

Mad Clown x Starship Entertainment

Having been with the agency for five years, Mad Clown has decided not to renew his contract with Starship Entertainment. On September 30th KST, Starship Entertainment uploaded a message on Twitter, thanking Mad Clown and bidding him an amicable farewell. Shortly afterward, Mad Clown himself took to Instagram and shared a heartfelt post about his departure.
He wrote, “It’s been five years since I decided to be with Starship, and time has flown by so quickly.” Referring to the agency as his family, the rapper shared that his tie with the company had been “a true blessing.” He expressed that “there would not be a Mad Clown” had it not been for Starship. Furthermore, he added that he learned so much simply from releasing his very first single “Stupid In Love” under the agency.
“There are many companies that are good at what they do, but few that make you feel like you’re really at home. My decision to go independent now makes me feel like I’m going off to college as a 20-year-old.” wrote Mad Clown. He wrapped up the message with another big thank you, with hashtags referring to the company as “#family” once again.
