You wanna know why?? Polymetric Rap. To be quick: it’s when the bars don’t resolve nicely. Instead of a simple 4/4 bar resolving itself every 1/2 bars, this part he gets reckless with the flow (in a sexy way) and creates a beautiful unresolved tension making the listener feel+
a greater sense of relief once it resolves. It’s a really cool way to add flavor to a song and by adding this moment towards the back end of the song, it’s a reward for the listener and keeps their attention to continue to the end.
I would also like to add he is rapping ahead of the beat here, so on the final 2 bars he speeds up his cadence and gives the feeling of speeding towards the finish, which also adds great variety and another sense of relief when it resolves. +
When I say Yoongi is a music production genius, THIS is what I mean. It’s the tiny details of this song that really set it apart and show he doesn’t just rap. He creates beautiful flows and rhythms and mixes/produces them to create masterpieces
And just for ref, here is another great example to really hear what I’m talking about
