1) When did your journey as a musician begin?
In 2009, I joined a Music Band in My School (DAV), which was the first time I was introduced to Music and Rhythm. I started rapping/composing songs during my college days. I was writing poetry since I was in school and it helped me a lot in writing song lyrics easily.
2) Which was your First Song?
My first song was “Hum-Dum”, a hip-hop song that became so popular in my college that everyone passing by me used to sing “hum dum o hum dum” and appreciates me, it was just an amazing song which is going to be released in my debut album “No Introduction” 2021 Worldwide.
3) Which Music Genre do you normally Prefer?
I love to do Raw Hip-hop, Pop, Reggae, And Electronic Music.
4) Tell us about your Upcoming Debut album?
“No Introduction” is the name of my Debut Hip-hop Album which is going to be released in 2021 worldwide. Album has 9 songs having different genres and tastes. The album contains 2-3 Punjabi songs party Anthem and 2-3 Hindi Songs and 2-3 Hindi + Punjabi Mix tracks. The album is going to be fired across India. Indian Hip-hop is Going to taste a new sound.
5) How much do you charge for Performing a Live event/show?
Actually, during my college days, I used to Perform for free if the management was good and the stage / Music Systems is professional. But now I had to charge a small amount of 36k for 2 hours. We are Performing with our Whole team (Singer/ Rappers). After Album success Charges may Jump to some higher Figures.
6) Who has been your Inspiration?
I have been inspired by International Hip-hop artists like Tupac, Wiz Khalifa, Lil Wayne, and Indian Guru “Chanakya” and his principles had a great impact on my life.
7) Where did you see yourself in the next Five Years?
I want to go International and want my songs to appear on the Billboard charts.
8) What is your View on the Emerging Diss culture in Indian Hip-hop?
Dissing each other is a part of hip-hop culture but it should be taken in a positive way. Till now in Indian Hip-hop only one diss battle is very famous that is between Emiway Bantai and Raftaar, I would like to say it was not a diss it was just a sorting out things and putting your facts Right in front of the Public which is a Fundamental Rights of Everyone. I love both artists there is no way to disrespect anyone because both are doing amazing in their own style.
9) What is your opinion on the remake trend of songs in Bollywood?
Sorry to say but Bollywood is becoming Copywood. I think they don’t have faith In new composers and in agreed to make more and more money, they simply Remake old songs with Modern DAW giving Trap Beats and then make it a Dance Version and then Release it without taking any permission from the original Composer of the song. If you check 60% of songs of very renowned old composers in Bollywood you will find that they are just copied versions of international old songs. I’m hoping things will change in favor of new Composers in the Future.
10) How was life in quarantine?
Quarantine helped me a lot to find the new potential within me and I am grateful for all the love and appreciation for my work.
