“Peekaboo” – Karsh Kale feat Apeksha, Benny & Mandeep Sethi [Coke Studio – MTV Season 2]

California based MC Mandeep Sethi aka Seti X from Slumgods, gets featured on Coke Studio @ MTV Season 2. The track also features Apeksha & Benny Dayal, and its been produced by Karsh Kale.
Karsh kale is an Indian-American producer, and is considered to be the pioneer of Asian Underground Genre. He’s been mixing Indian classical and folk with electronica, rock, pop, hip hop and ambient music

DRS caught up with Mandeep Sethi for a quick Interview about his experience at coke studio, and working with Karsh, Beny and Apeksha.

DRS: How did you get involved in Coke Studio ?
Mandeep Sethi: Karsh Kale and Brooklyn Shanti hit me up asking me to come back to India to join Karsh’s all star collectiv of folks. I had just got back from India but have always had tremendous respect for Mr. Kale and his body of work and was excited at the opportunity of collaborating with him, especially back in our homeland.

DRS: Why is this important for hip hop in India?
Mandeep.Sethi: To a certain degree, I think this will help young hip hop artists who have been struggling with the issue of legitimacy around their art form. Hip-Hop does not need to be validated by anyone outside of the culture, but this will allow folks outside the culture to get a peak of what we are all about. I think it will also shatter the image of what hip-hop looks like when they see me gettin down.

DRS: Any future plans?
Mandeep.Sethi: I’m definetely looking forward to coming back to India and working alongside my One Commission fam, making music with 2Shadez, Kru172 & Desi Beam. I have a couple new mixtapes and collaborations in the works, and am really excited to share them with my global family.

DJ Danny Speaks – DRS interviews DJ Danny

DRS TV Caught up with Rapper / Producer DJ Danny for a short conversation.  We spoke to him about his present, past and future, as well as his take on Desi Hip Hop in the subcontinent. Read the whole conversation we had with DJ Danny, as he speaks his heart and mind.

DJ Danny

DRS:  First of all, tell the fans something about your Life, Childhood, schooling and your hometown.

Danny: Well I’m Adnan Rao . Born and raised in Tripoli , Libya . Spent 18 important years of my life there . Even though being originally from Islamabad , Pakistan . I still do visit on specific special occasions and pretty much all of my schooling was done in Tripoli . I graduated from ‘ The International School Of Martyrs ( I.S.M ) ‘ back in 09 . I do hold Libya very close to my heart . I guess it’s how it is with everyone being brought up far away from the country itself . You start to blend with different cultures outside of home and at school . That really had me interested and curious about the world . Always learnt something everyday and I never forgot what my parents taught me . That was really important being from a Punjabi family . Learning how to speak the language and getting to know all about my country was something I just had to do .

    Did change schools for just one year – Grade 10 – P.C.S.A.C . Pakistani system had me trippin’ major haha ! Met some life long friends that have sadly spread all over the world now . Learnt about Pakistan itself , took a nose dive into Pakistan’s history and geography related subjects . One reason why i’m really patriotic .

DRS: Journey from Adnan to DJ Danny. How did Adnan become DJ Danny ?
Danny: Danny was always around . Family and close friends used it as a nickname . Dj Danny came around when I was 16 . It was unexpected and one thing led to another . A close friend of mine named Aws Sherif handed me a Sony Sound Forge CD back when we were 12-13 . I wanted to mess around with some mp3 files I had and shove them into my new mobile . I was one of the cool kids that had one back then early haha ! I was all into editing music files that I wanted as ringtones . Got carried away ended up making remixes . Screwed around far too much and the next thing you know I was producing/sampling beats . Then came the rap part . It all led from nothing to something . Determination got me through I never knew I’d be making my own songs . I love music on a serious note . That’s when you make sure you know everything about it . The motto’s always been ‘ If you like something and it makes you happy never let it go ‘ .

    Grade 10 , 16 years old making remixes that spread around school . To even making a song where I dissed my own school principal haha ! Always been a rebel within not the kind that would hop on the bandwagon because the whole world thinks it’s cool . People wanted their speakers to blast and I made that happen . They started calling me Dj Danny . I never asked for that name it was given . I carried on the legacy and just kept it going . My first rap song was named ‘ My Turn ‘ no one heard it because I lost it before people could get their hands on it haha !

    Made this trademark that I use on every song I have something to do with . I still use it on every song . That reminds me of how I started . I don’t want to change that feeling . Always wanted to make music that people would remember . That’s what the Dj Danny in me had in mind all the time and he just kept going . Not to confuse it with Adnan . The world hasn’t heard of him yet . Adnan writes rhymes more like poems , complex . It’s the dark side that you listen to when it comes to Dj Danny . You will however get to listen to Adnan in the future too , no doubt !

DRS: How many years have you been in music for ?
Danny: Started making remixes at 13 , officially as a rapper i’d say it’s been a little over 3-4 years . I’ve started to take it real serious after getting to know what the people really want and expect from you . Never want to disappoint the fans . They’re the true motivation that keeps you going .

DRS: How has the Journey been so far ?
Danny:  I’ve come a long way from where I started . From recording at home , to getting played on the radio . Then getting interviews on radio channels all across Pakistan . It wasn’t normal . You have to work for it . It’s been a great experience so far . I mean I don’t even have official videos or an album and I got fans joining the facebook pages daily . Youtube crossing over 100,000 views that also includes as an achievement . Recognised rappers from Pakistan and etc. joining forces with me making some good quality , hits that the fans end up loving . People know what i’m capable of . I see the respect . I love that feeling . The fans will get albums and videos from myside soon . I’m just not in a position to launch a full-fledged attack on the music industries in the sub-continent right now but it’s a promise . Trust me I get around !

DRS: Your take on Hip Hop in Pak / India ?
Danny: Hip-Hop in the sub-continent is always appreciated . Be it desi or non-desi people take great interest , go to concerts , watch the videos on youtube and etc . It’s just the way that they stereotype us , that’s what I hate . See we have hip-hop as a genre and hip-hop as a culture . As a way of life . Young rappers get it all confused trying to copy the styles they have in the west and etc . Stay true to you . You’re not like them quit acting like them . Dammit quit dressing like them too ! Take a look at me . I’m not walking around with Yankee caps on my head and swinging chains just because I saw 50 cent do it in his video . When you rap it’s something else . Bring ‘ you ‘ into the song and keep the ‘ yo-ness ‘ out . You got the accent not a problem because the people back home might relate to it . Just don’t try to fake it . You don’t want to scrape fame off stuff you wrote that YOU can’t relate to . This goes out to alot of rappers I see in India and Pakistan . I’m not saying everyone’s doing the same thing . Yeah we have artists that have proved to be worthy enough of being called ‘ rappers ‘ and ‘ producers ‘ but it’s really the other kinds that fake it and ruin the whole image .

    If you can’t do it IMPROVE . Don’t want to stop rapping ? Learn the art of rap FIRST . It’s like a war you need to make sure you have all your guns reloaded . You don’t want to be caught off gaurd . You mess with someone that knows what he’s doing and he’ll simply end your whole hip-hop dream ! I’ve done that to a couple of guys that were sneaking around . I’ve gone through battles , I don’t mess with people that aren’t on my level . I’d probably diss you and forget you . Sometimes you just need to get on your beast mode . You start a fire you better have the fire extinguisher or a person like me knows how to fuel that and burn you to bits and pieces .

    Keeping it real is a must . Write rhymes you can relate to . It’s just that damn simple . People would start respecting the art then . Heck hip-hop is so vast . I use it to express myself really . People know how I feel about a certain topic . I have my say and it’s done . These pop stars and disco dancers don’t work as hard as rap artists do . We write ! Write stories & complex stuff . Making the world dance or making the world sad is quite easy . But do you make them think ? Ponder on facts separated from fiction ? Exercise the brain making sure it’s intact with reality , that’s what we do !

DRS: Tell us somethin about your debut collaboration project Death Row Desi.
Danny: Death Row Desi ( D.R.D ) , was my first collaboration mixtape with Crack ( aka Waqas ) . I sensed lethal musicial chemistry between us . Threw a couple dozen tracks at the fans , gave them the tease . They reacted . So I put in work with Crack on the tape . We got real heavily involved with the whole concept . He agreed and had the time to record , I was making sure we laced it with perfection and it all happened over a period of 6 months . Learnt marketing in a way too . You need to feed the fans . Once they fall in love they can’t get enough of your music they want more . They expect . We keep up with the expectation . D.R.D was a massive hit for me and Crack . People still viewing the songs on youtube , reverbnation , myspace etc . They still send me msgs about the way it helped them get on with their life . Gave them hope and etc . I made sure we had strictly desi lyricial content on it when it came to Crack . He was the punjabi rapper . I Experimented with some beats the outcome was ravishing .

    Death Row Desi , will never be forgotten . Not to miss out on mentioning the amount of other artists we had on the tape too . It sounded more of an underground album when I was giving it the final touches . I still bump to it and love almost every track we had . The whole English-Punjabi collaboration ended up proving very lethal . We had great other rap artists from around the globe working with us ( Pakman , Nottotune , Roxy , G Frekey , Z Flo , Aman D , Undefined and etc . ) Undefined still is one of the most underated producers of the sub-continent . Got to give that young blood credit for hits like ‘ Blazin’ Love , Witnesses , Desis Get Down ‘ he’s one reason why D.R.D was a success itself . He’s holdin’ it down in Karachi right now .

    I have plans for another D.R.D project . Might drop sometime next year so be on the look-out for it !

DRS: Your favorite song from your own tracks ?
Danny: I love all the songs I do haha ! But my personal favourite would be ‘ Tun ‘ . I just loved the fact that I ended up sampling the legendary Amitabh Bachan . He’s my favorite Bollywood actor and to get him sampled on the chorus , intro + outro just proved addicting . You are not a ‘ Dj Danny ‘ fan if you haven’t heard it on Death Row Desi .

    I have dozens of other unreleased/unfinished songs that I’d include on this list but the fans havn’t heard them yet so I won’t be naming any .

DRS: Favorite Song from other underground artist’s tracks ?
Danny:  I listen and stay updated with everyone I work with .

    Crack – Cold Blooded – He went all in on his verses , I was on the 2nd verse and chorus but he really took that track to places . I still get told by friends of mine that they still hear that track being played on the streets of Pakistan .

    Nottotune & Guru (Yung HNI) – Giddeyan Di Rani – I still listen to the mix , both friends of mine always do a great job when they collaborate . I personally shared it with quite a few friends of mine too .

    Rap Engineers – pretty much everything they come up with goes straight into my collection . I’ve made some pretty good music with them too . It’s not the end we’ve got alot of surprises for you so you better keep checking for updates .

    Adil Omar – One of the many few that have really had the chance to go all in when it comes to Hip-Hop . His new fans know him from the videos . I knew this fellow when he was on orkut . I’ve seen him rise . He’s going places and I’ve always kept myself updated . Eradicate’s a song I still bump to , stay on the look out for his album it’ll definitely be dope !

    I could keep going but like I said I’m always aware of what’s happening in the underground hip-hop scenes in India & Pakistan .

DRS: Top 10 Favourite artists of all times.
Danny: If I were to name my top ten artists i’d say :

    1- 2pac / Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan /
    2- Nas / Dmx / Junoon / The Game
    3- Eminem / Dr.Dre / Ice Cube / Xzibit
    4- Jay Z / Kanye / Bone Thugs / Panjabi MC
    5- Yelawolf / Tech N9ne / Twista
    6 – Cold Play / Frank Sinatra / Big Pun
    7 – Justin Timberlake / Timbaland
    8 – Kendrick Lamar / Mayday / Mos Def
    9 – Gnars Barkley / Outkast / Outlandish
    10 – Hans Zimmer / Jeff Beck / Linken Park / Nirvana

    Alright well I got carried away I never should’ve answered this question haha !

DRS: Your Inspiration ?
Danny:  2 Pac : As far as hip-hop is concerned – I’d like to thank my two big brothers that handed me my first ever rap album . They were always true fans of the westcoast . Had me addicted to the music afterwards .

    Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan :

    Him being one artist my Dad still listens to . Considered him a legend always and I grew up listening to him . The talented die young but their music never fades away . I never used to totally understand what Nusrat wanted to say in his music until I grew up and realized it was deeper than the deepest ocean that ever existed . He was just that type of person !

    Rest In Peace to both artists though . They’ll keep inspiring me wherever I go and I’ll make sure I hand their music down to the future generations too !

DRS: Do u think hiphop plays any role in bringing peace across the border and uniting the public ?
Danny: Hip-Hop for me has always been a way to express yourself . Rhymes that speak for itself . Feelings put into a song , mastered and mixed with emotions . Heard by many and felt by some . Music as in general can fuel revolutions . Uniting people , raising awareness , pin-pointing problems in the society – It all comes down to music made from heart and written with meaning to it . People make garbage that gets promoted and is thought to be ‘ cool ‘ so a group of people just spread the word about it but NO . Explore this world and you’ll find gems in the making . Music can end wars and start them too . It all depends on how you want it to be. Power with the people .

DRS: Tell us something about your Future Projects ?
Danny:
Upcoming Future Projects For Now Include :

    1 – Untitled Mixtape – Dj Danny
    2 – The 2nd Death Row Desi
    3 – Music Videos ( 2012 – 2013 )
    4 – A lot of other songs that I’m working on whenever I get the time .

DRS: Anything you want to say to upcoming artists ?
Danny: I love everyone who supports hip-hop in Pakistan / India . I know the media doesn’t give us the shine we deserve . Goes for the big fishes in the game but there’s too much talent that is just waiting on it’s time to rise and when it does . There ain’t no stopping them .

DRS: A message to fans ?
Danny:  I’d just end this interview by saying a few words . If you want to get into this ‘ hip-hop ‘ world . Don’t be good or great be legendary !

Machas With Attitude:- An Insular Mirror into their life.

(Official Introduction Re-vised By Illusion)
Hip Hop in India is Just Born. MWA was started by Bigg Nikk, soon joined by Smokey and Brodha V and thus ” Machas With Attitude – MWA ” came into existence on June 14th 2008. DJ Sameer J was also included later into the group. One of the most controversial group in South India, the MWA have influenced Hip Hop in India in a massive way. Because every rapper has a Different style and Different flow on every track. MWA caused major impact in the first month itself . Be it Patriotic or Sad or Funny or Angry or even a blend of all emotions – any type of Song MWA “Make the Difference” everywhere!

Illusion (writer on this blog) got Smokey from MWA here in a tête-à-tête converstaion with her and to announce the release of their First Studio Album. Excerpts :-

Illusion: (First Question) Tell us something about your crew “MWA“….as in the history?
Smokey: Basically, MWA is Brodha V, Smokey and Big Nikk ,well we started off as the BR Soldiers , a crew on Orkut and stuff but went on to start making audios and big Nikk suggested the name MWA ” the Brahmins “, we’ve been rapping since around a year, June 14th 2009 will be one year, we have worked hard to get we are since then and still trying, we will be coming up with our full time Album Soon! The work is on the progress, that’s what MWA is all about!.. Rap and we out to save it!

Illusion: Hey, congrats for your new album. Upping it! As you know the road to success isn’t an easy one. It’s surely taken a lot of determination to reach where you are today. So how does it feel to be at this position so early in life?
Smokey: Well, me and V are 18 gonna be 19 soon!, what do I say, it feels like a Million Bucks!! You know what it is.. there is no replacement for hard work and when you look so good and rap so Burning Hot, you cant stop in this game ( at least that’s what the girls say ) ..

Illusion: Ha-ha. Seems like girls have a big part in this journey of yours! Anyway, MWA grew up Listening to artists like Rakim , Snoop dogg , Eminem , Krs-one , 2 Pac, etc. dreaming everyday that they’ll reach the top…So what is that one factor that plunged you into rapping? There are many other genres of music as well.
Smokey: Well, it’s like… “A Baby knows who its Mama is!!”…so we know what our Music is! Rap is like the thing that Comforts us, a way we express what we feel like inside or Sometimes Express how the Common man feels. Moreover it was like a Connection! And we didn’t look back.

Illusion: The biggest mistake that most bands make is when they try to recruit a new band member is to focus entirely on the musician’s technical ability and chops as opposed to look at other key components needed to make a band successful. MWA just consisted of 3 members but today when it’s at the peak of this glory has 9 members. How do you recruit members to your band? (And are girls allowed?)
Smokey: When MWA is at the peak of its Glory it has 3 members! These are the text battling members! They have been cleaned up and are long gone, these are the BR soldiers, the MWA FAMILY, and as I mentioned earlier we are Brodha V, Smokey and Big Nikk! Well be it a girl or a guy, no one is allowed anymore. The only other person involved is DJ Sameer from Chennai. He’s a active part of the crew but we are the main peepz who do the game!!

Illusion: Tracks like Fire on thin Ice, MWA created a lot of Quakes in the country and turned out to be major hits. We, as listeners, just hear the song and comment on it. But what goes inside the studio is best known to you people. What is the order of steps while recording an audio?
Smokey: Well it depends. You see the Studio is something else, you have to get your Practice right, and there is a small line between professionalism and being totally shitty. People don’t see how hard one has to work on the beats and Lyrics and Vocals and make sure the clarity is awesome, we’ve recorded for a few movies and when it comes to recording for a Movie, we gotta do what the music director wants. If it’s for our own Album, we are allowed to do what we want but we have to predict what the other person likes. Have to think how many commercial and how many non-commercial song we have to make, get the copyrights done, impress the sponsors (which we will), and finally come out with something great, which we promise to do. Cause lemme tell you, this album, your gonna feel it, your gonna play it and gonna scream our name out like you never have.

Illusion: Sure, I’m expecting a lot from you people and I know you gonna live up to it in every way. Since the talk has shifted to Movies now, MWA have a great variation in their lyrics with Tamil/English and even Hindi being the pick! MWA has also given background scores to many Tamilian movies (Aayrithul Ore Van” being the first)Except movies and albums, what other avenue would MWA like to set their hands on? Would it like to share stage with International artists as their “ULTIMATE DREAM”?
Smokey: Well its not that we wanna Share the stage with international artist, we wanna be that international artist <- that’s the "Ultimate Dream", there is no end to reaching to the top, we will keep going and we are set to make our sing and song for a upcoming Movie by GV Prakash, also we are due to meet A.R. Rahman in June or July. Hopefully that will happen but talking real, we will set our own footsteps into the Industry and we will be international, there is no doubt about it, and will work hard for it! (Which I think every band has to do) Focus on the path and keep walking, well it’s easier said than done, but yea, we’re on it, don worry! We’re gonna be in that speaker of yours.

Illusion: Well, wish you all the luck in the world. MWA’s progress is indirectly related to India’s progress. Being an Indian, It is already a privilege for me to conduct this interview with you.MWA has a positive approach to life. They’ll be setting goals for those who will follow them and on the same lines, who is your inspiration?
Smokey: For Brodha V and Big Nikk, its 2 pac and for me (Smokey) its Eminem .We’ll we are a little Choosy with the way we bring our Priorities. We are what we are and I would like to say that, I think our Parents are our greatest Inspiration and most of all, we love to prove people wrong and it’s become a blessing!! Indians can rap and can rap well. Keep faith in the one above and you will be blessed.

Illusion: In God we trust. (shifting to the legal side) Unless you are a certified band Name, you won’t be able to perform anywhere in the world. Do you have a written ‘band agreement’? Have you registered your songs for copyright protection with the Indian Copyright Office? Do you have an entertainment law attorney to consult with? Are you financially able to fund the costs of establishing your career?
Smokey: It is not necessary that we have to get the band name certified to perform but to put out the album and to rap in movies, the producers make sure that happens and we’ve got the copyrights to the songs that have our own beats and own Vocals on. The rest is borrowed from some people like Shadowville and Seandivine, they are beautiful beat makers and have been helping us in promoting ourselves. They have confirmed that unless we use it for album purpose we can use their beats but we coming up with our beats on the album so for the Promos, we use Sean Divine! He’s great. Yes our sponsors make sure we are financially fine.

Illusion: News can make or Break a person. As far as MWA goes, life hasn’t been a bed of roses for you all. You faced criticism from some of the rappers here in your Hometown. Does MWA give a damn to them? Or Let the Music do the talking? Does that affect you emotionally sometimes?
Smokey: We Laugh. That’s the only way it has affected us! We have put all of them off their feet and we are proudly standing because we know where we are and were they are. Some people claim to have murked us but see I told u they make me laugh.

Illusion: He he! At times, when success overpowers your conscience, proudness emerges. Are you over- confident of our own selves at times? I mean like stars today, you need a Manager or MWA is better off managing gigs, films, audios by themselves. Every decision is taken mutually or are there any disagreements between band members?
Smokey: They are Lots of fights. Me and V and Nikk fight regularly, it’s a part of our band you see. It makes a better band to be very frank and we manage our gigs by ourselves. Success overpowers conscience when u let it do so! Proudness is something that every good artist has to have and in the end because of all these fights, we end up making Songs like what we have. I’m sure you have heard them and you’re bouncing to them.

Illusion: Those Foot- tapping beats and hardcore vocals. They’re playing on my IPod all the time (to be really frank) what are you future aspirations? Would you want to get into mainstream Bollywood? First conquer India and then set the Outside world on fire?
Smokey: We aim at both right now. If it comes in our way, why not? We are going to Mauritius this New Year’s eve. That’s booked already plus we’re doing well in the Tamil industry.

Illusion: (Last Question) Tell me the name of your first solo Album and its release date? Any message to the world? Any thing you want the world to watch out for? Any message for future rappers?
Smokey: The Solo album and the release date is kinda a Surprise because our Promoters are one of the greatest. Well, all I can tell u is. They’re international. Watch out for us, you will have to even if you don’t want to and for the future bands I hope they come up, my haters; I hope they do well too!! May god bless them all!!! One love =)
Illusion: Thank You for your precious time. You were wonderful throughout.
Smokey: You’re Welcome.

Desi Rapper Interviews : A “Kronik” interview (BTO mixtapes hitting this december)

This Past week,Nottie Dogg from Desi Rapper Show,caught up with a very very “Kronik”,Kronik 969 from the Underground Hip hop Group,The BTO.This very very “Kronik” rapper was here to announce not one,not two,but three of the upcoming mixtapes from the BTO.SO let’s check out what he had to say when “Kronik met Phantomm”

Nottie: welcome BIG Kronik to the Desi rapper interviews with Nottie D-O-Double G
Kronik: well ya welcome’s accepted… what I shud say I’m really happy. Go on….. n your name’s cool.

Nottie: So first of all, tell us somethin ‘bout yourself….
Kronik: big kronik has actually metamorphosized into Kronik 969…. I’m the craziest, funniest or the most satanic or devilish person u can find anywhere…. I don’t trust anybody but me. I wont say I’ve been thru this n I’ve been thru that but as everyone has their own story i have one, n that ain’t a nice good one. Anger, pain, agony, rage, aggression defines kronik969.

Nottie: So would you throw some light on the life history of kronik969???
Kronik: Oh now u gettin to the point.

Nottie: Yeah man, this is the first thing that people wanna know.
Kronik: kronik is the name which i got in a funny way. Once I, and a guy on orkut, peter smith, were chattin n havin fun. At that time i used to post ma raps on the name ak deep.He said this ain’t cool. He gave me lots of names n end up on lil’ Kronik because of ma attitude. I said how ’bout big kronik, n bang here it is big kronik. We both said to ourselves, “its fuckin cool…” and so big kronik came. And kronik 969 is somethin which is much more matured n aggressive form yet calm n emotional at times. 969 is sumthin not spiritual… guys think I took it from bible… well I haven’t read that book yet… no offense intended. 969 is sumthin y’all see in ma albums… like u know split personality n stuff.

Nottie: Now I know that thing well!!!(Ha Ha Ha!!!)

Nottie: So what does 969 mean??
Kronik: U all will eventually come to know about 969 in ma upcoming mixtapes. right now i’m focusin on kronik.Well everything here is planned nottie… so no worries cuz if sumthin doesn’t go as per ma plan, I change the plan, kick that things ass n then do what I want when I want n where I want. I’ve beaten ma best friend’s ass n laughed. Now u can know how fuckin evil I am… but the next second we 2 were like best homies again… so I’m kind too..

Nottie: So that’s 969, the “evil” “kind”.
Kronik: no not the evil kind. Actually 969 came in ma dream carved on an old tree, a year back. And it’s me from then.

Nottie: What was before Kronik ?
Kronik: there was a kid name Aakash, whose life became hell when he was 14.So last 7 yrs were like hell for me. Everything u can say from academics to friends, fights n brawls…. then drugs smoke alcohol.Some gangsta stuff at a higher level. every bad thing. And guess what whenever whatever I did right backfired on me, like I’m being slapped on ma fuckin face for doin gud. I don’t wanna talk about it again. kronik 969 is ma name now, I’m livin it… aakash is dead….. n he ain’t comin back. U talk about names, then these are my names. Aakash, honey, AK, kronik, hell.
Aakash-school name….never lived up to it.
Honey-ma mom n ma GF only calls me with this one.
AK in the gangsta stuff.
Hell-ma college friends.
And Kronik-u know.

Nottie: So how Kronik came into this rap shit….???
Kronik: Well I did the most stupid thing I’ve ever done n let me accept that was the only cowardly move of my life… I attempted suicide, blood all on the floor n I don’t remember but I woke up after some hours n what I said to myself was: “what the fuck cant even die in peace now…”
And while this was going on sing for the moment song by EM was playin on ma laptop… n bang, I thought man this is good…. lyrics were gr8… n hip hop/rap is why I’m here breathin in front of you.

Nottie: Man !!!,a lot of people, including me, get influenced by eminem, why u think is that ???
Kronik: Well because the songs relate to us also somehow, someway… n that’s it… by us I mean most of the people who r influenced by eminem on a serious note. Now some ask me have ever listened to this rapper or that rapper n I say no… They say so u don’t know nuthin about hip hop… well i say fuck off… if I don’t listen too some of those who passed out even b4 i was born…no bad words but i just don’t listen to them that’s all… it doesn’t matter who u listen to, the thing that matters to me is how u feel it n how u make it worthy for listenin n how deep u go in a song of any kind take rock or rap anyone…. the depth listenin n gettin the actual thing behind it is an art… n I believe I have it.

Nottie: Tell us somethin ’bout how you caught up with the BTO???
Kronik: I used to post raps on EFFFI community, Emenjay found me from nowhere, he called me up n asked me about doin recordings… I mean that guy has 4years experience n I was like damn man I have jus completed a year listenin to muzic itself… but u know I’m kronik, n I did it with him…..then D’Brassic came into picture n we three r more like a family now…….. i n Emenjay kept thinkin but cud’nt find a gr8 name for our band… n the brassic came up with BTO…. n we took it… it’s cool.

Nottie: So what makes you click with Brassic and Emenjay???
Kronik: Well all had I kind of same story….but different versions I shud say……..n what makes Shawn Michaels click with Scott,Nash and HHH. Nuthin clicked, It all happened rather slowly n till now its goin real gud…. as I said before BTO is a family. Not jus another rappin group writin fuck three times in a line to rhyme n be in prime time news for crimes.

Nottie: What about the future projects???
Kronik: “Kronik unleashed”- 9 songs from Kronik.
“Emenjay vs Eminem” from EmenJay.
And third one…”the beginning vol-2”. It will have some collabs from me and Emenjay & 4 solos each…

Nottie: So when we gonna hear some of deese ???
Kronik: May be somewhere around December.

Nottie: Oh that’s great. So y’all better get ready for some “hawt hawt Kronik & BTO shit!!!”
Kronik: Well I’ll say Emenjay is the one cuz of whom Kronik is what he is….. so man thanx a lot…. n now kronik 969 says “if u got balls to listen to real gr8 hip-hop/rap from what u say underdawgs, the BTO is gonna kick ya ass n crack ya balls”

Nottie: SO what’s about the RAP GAME that keeps you connected to it???
Kronik: Rap is for what I n Emenjay live n love to do……to listen… we’re like crazy about this…. we don’t talk to each other for months sometimes but that doesn’t break the bond. We have as true friends n as a family…

Nottie: What do you think you’ll do regarding the position of rap game in India..???
Kronik: Well there r thousands of rappers in India, yet hip hop is not where it shud be…. i think instead of beefin with each other first we shud unite n take hip hop/rap to the point that it deserves…

Nottie: You think rappers can do something for one love, unity and peace (opposed to what they are thought about,e.g. gangsta stuff, guns and beef..)
Kronik: no what I meant was give hip hop what it deserves n help each other out being what u r, by gangsta way, by any way… till its gud for hip hop KRON is ready for it.

Nottie: What shud be done to bring up the rap game in India???
Kronik: Shows, more shows n kick ass rockin buster swashbuckling performances on stages with audiences who know hip hop… n promotional videos n media support….

Nottie: You would like to thank……………..???
Kronik: i would like to thank Kronik 969… ha ha haaa…….
Well on a serious note only person except me I wanna thank is Emenjay.

Nottie: Any message for the people???
Kronik: Hey people, hip hop is what we live for n we don’t have to die for it…… unity in diversity is our political what u say a statement made by politicians I say unity in diversity includin all of hip hop fans n artists… is the best way to raise the bar of hip hop in India…

Kronik: well i think interview went quite smoothly… but I wanna add somethin to it…
Yeah! kronik 969 is goin ta take your interview within a week.

Nottie: WOW!!! Now that’s stunning….I gots to watch out now…
So let’s wrap up this interview with some freestyle from Kronik 969 himself…..
Kronik: I’MA TRANQUALIZE YA RHYMES CUZ YA VANDALIZE THE LINES
I BRUTALIZE MA CRIMES N THEN APPETIZE MA MIND

TRY THESE LINES I’LL MAKE YA CRY IN RHYMES
MA RAP’S CATASTROPHIC JUST DERIVE THESE SWINES

UR THE THIN LINE BETWEEN A SHAGGER AND A FOOL
I’M A HERO FOR GIRLS CUZ I TICKLE’EM MAKING THEM SWOON

KRONIK’S BACK WITH RAP ATTACKS ON THE GAME
KICKIN ASS LIKE CASH WITH NO REGRETS FOR THE FAME
I’MA TURN THE TABLES N BREAK YA DAMES
I’MA BURN THE LABELS THEN STAKE THE CLAIMS
AINT ASHAMED OF BLADES AS I’M “STRAIGHT IN THE FLAMES”
WITH THE SAME GAME THAT I “PLAYED IN YA FRAME”
WHILE I SHOVED IT OFF N WHICH I “CRAVED IN YA SHAME”
AS I CHOKED IT ON SPITTIN THE “PAIN IN YA BRAIN”

Nottie: Thanx Kronik for joinin in for the desi rapper show….
Kronik: thanx Nottie doggie, or I say Phantomm….. For bein calm n bearin me.

Desi Rapper Interviews : Speed ICE

Y’all know that there are more that enough wannabe’s out there claiming that they rappers,claiming that they can spit freestyles.There are hundreds walkin around without a purpose,Rhymin without a reason.And then “girls and rap”,i mean who could ‘ve thought ’bout that ?

But one girl did think of that,and she does “Rhyme For Reason”.And if you think that she’s just another wannabe rapper girl,think again,b’coz she blasts like a Tech-9 when it comes to rap,so better don’t feel like messin wid her on a freestyle.

She is RFR member Speed ICE.Check out this one,as Navi, a.k.a. Mr. Nottie DoGG,caught up wid Speed ICE.

Navi: So first of all ,welcome speed ICE,to desi rapper interview,wid nottie !!!
Speed: yeah,well thanx Nottie…..

Navi: so first of all,who actually is speed ice ?
Speed: Well, Speed ice is ADITI (A-Deity )…I’m not the down-town gangsta girl with braids and one showering curses at men. My homies usually carry this image of mine. I am an artist. Rapping was incidental. I was into writing poetry when suddenly I got attracted to doing Rap Music.
I was born in Chandigarh. but now I’m putting up in Delhi..
Darjeeling was the place which introduced me to rap.

Navi: A female rapper, i mean we don’t see much of em.How u think of that?
Speed: Well yeah,the sub-continent is still not steppin’ forward in this field. Well when I was young I didn’t know I was a feminist..but I guess I’ve always been. From playing football to not-taking-no-bullshit-from none. I guess I’m a bit different from what Indian girls are perceived to be.
Its fun you know.

Navi: How did u begin all dis Rap stuff ???
Speed: Well,it might sound like outta some crap movie…but one day I was getting back from a jog and heard Eminem being played at a girls’ hostel near my place and I was like “now that’s cool…I wish I could do that”
I was in Darjeeling back then. That place is as dope as weed. Rock and Rap flows in the people’s veins. it got into mine as well..

Navi: Yeah,i was surprised when i got 2 know that there was a female rapper in RFR. U are the first one i’ve ever known. I ‘ve never even seen a girl who likes a guy who likes Hip Hop.
Speed: Well,yeah.I wanted to come out flashin’ in the rap front. But initially I was scared. To be honest DISHI (a femcee) was an inspiration and a close friend. After watching her I came forward….

Navi: Got new fact about Darjeeling as well.. I never knew that..
Speed: Well its a small town. Young boys with rock bands and girls looking like punks aren’t a rare sight there. I prefer rap over rock ‘cause I dig meaningful lyrics. Rock is more instrumental.

Navi: How ‘d you get in contact wid RFR ???
Speed: Well I was the moderator at BR.Inc (now known as MWA).Some beef started and I started my new community Insignia with Brassic as the manager. ShAf-e joined it and we became aquaintances. He made an open invitation for RFR membership and I joined it, almost instigating the much-talked about MWA beef.

Navi: u did any audios with the crew ?
Speed: not yet. At first I didn’t feel the inclination to. But now its like I hardly have the time
But I’ll drop some, very soon.

Navi: Means we’ll hear some of the dope stuff from speedy…
Speed: Well yeah,you can say that…

Navi: So, how does it feel being in a male dominated rap game ?
Speed: That’s what’s exciting and keeps me here. As a feminist this is something which is like a challenge to me. It’s not easy I must say…
There were times when I wasn’t taken seriously, even back bitched about. Gossip is more of a male thing I must say
…The thing is guys can’t stand losing to a girl…and when they did. They got outraged and tried making things messy, but lets just say “I came out clean”

Navi: ha ha ha !!! Now that’s some real thing.
Speed: Yeah, I am studying psychoanalysis at grads, so I know….

Navi: u remember your first rap battle???
Speed: Yeah…I remember my unofficial battle, not the official one though. It was with Steve and I had lost …but as far as any official battle is concerned, I’ve not yet lost any ( I don’t fight the ones I’m not well-equipped for).

Navi: Your future plans?
Speed: Well, I’ve not yet thought of rapping professionally, but well why not if suits me good later on in life. One thing you can be sure of is – you’ll surely get to read some of my writings on the shelf.

Navi: RFR is a big crew. I mean rappers from India, rappers from Pakistan. how do you manage all that ? I mean makin audios and all that….
Speed: Yeah, that’s what made me join RFR. See these days almost everything works online (including relationships, lol) so why not crews? Its about crossing the borders and working together. Forming crews cause one is from the north and south isn’t cool you know. Standing by each other cause of music and talent is why RFR is what it is
It all works on fine. Of course we don’t work together in studios but its works out fine online, mixing, beat making, vocals, it’s done separately and then you have the audio.

Navi: means the youth wants unity…
Speed: well yeah, global.

Navi: i’d love to see both countries reunite. But it seems hard now….
Speed: RFR wishes the same.

Navi: so you would like to thank to……..
Speed: Dishi,I miss her and would say thanx for helping me do what (now) i do best. And of course thanx to all ‘em rappers who are trying to bring Desi rap to the limelight.
Thank you Speed ICE for giving us some of your valuable time.Hope to hear from you again soon.

So this was Speed ICE from RFR.RFR made one thing very clear.If its in your heart,no boundry in the world can stop you.If you want all this and more of them Underground Celebrities,keep visiting DesiRapperShow.

Chillout…
We be catching you next time.
One Love,Peace.

Desi Rapper Interviews : The EmenJay

Desi Rapper Show caught up with the Underground Desi Hip Hop/Rap artist EmenJay from Rap group B.T.O.
Emenjay is currently working on his new album “The Beginning Vol. 2″.Check out what EmenJay has to say as ” Mr. Nottie Dogg ” Navi Caught up wid him….

Navi : Tell Us something ’bout your history with “The B.T.O.”
EmenJay : “Well about B.T.O, B.T.O stands for Big Time Operators. It’s a group of three artists named EMENJAY, BIG KRONIK and D BRASSIC.Me, THE EMENJAY is from Punjab(hoshiarpur)currently working with an eye specialist as a P.A. besides all of this rap shit. KRONIK is so kronik in his life. He is also doing MBA in pune right now,he is actually from delhi but due to his studies he has to live up with that. And about BRASSIC he is from Calcutta, he is currently doing law.Kronik’s real name is Akash.My real name is Manoj and Brassic’s real name is Ashwini. We met on the orkut website by battling wit each other on EFFI EMINEM community, we spit verses on our life and reality.Then we found that the lives that we are living are quite similar to each other’s.That was the biggest reason for our friendship and after sometime we planned to launch ourselves as a band called B.T.O. when they are done with their studies….”

Navi : Actually who is EmenJay ?
EmenJay :“As I already told my real name is “Manoj”.I am from Hoshiarpur(Punjab),and i’m workin with an eye specialist as a P.A.”

Navi : How did you come up the name “EmenJay” ?
EmenJay :” I heard that lots of people say that EMENJAY is the combination on “EMINEM AND JAY Z” probably its not what it looks..its a combination of my two names MANOJ AND JACK …. MANOJ is my real name and JACK is my nick name …. I took M from MANOJ and J from JACK and formed it M&J to call it EMENJAY….

Lots of people think that I try to mimic eminem. I don’t have my own originality and I wanna tell ’em that I don’t mimic anyone.It’s in my blood.Believe it or not when I rap I purely sound like EMINEM and the life that I am living is quite similar to him.In creating multies it always stays on my tongue, the voice that I got is god gifted couse its very same that he has. And about being struggler I don’t give a fuck for anyone. I don’t have my dad. I have my sis and my mom, my dad died when I was 5 and now I have to help that woman(my mom) who raised me to that level where I am now and I don’t feel guilty about being a copy of him I feel proud for being similar to him and I will achieve my goal one day…”

Navi : About your debut “The Beginning”
EmenJay :” beginning is all about the beginning of me, it’s the beginning of my carrier, beginning of my rap thing, beginning of my life,, that’s why I thought that name for my first MIXTAPE….”

Navi : About your upcoming project “Money Talks” ?
