The new duo will be debuting with a mini-album on March 11 titled 9801! Its title comes from the combination of the years they were born in, which is 1998 for Wooseok and 2001 for Kuan Lin.

The two also unveiled 9801‘s tracklist, which boasts five new songs. Besides the title track “All Sorts of Things”  (literal translation) which both rappers wrote, many are looking forward to the huge team-up with other artists that the duo has made for the mini-album.
