Delhi based rapper KRTK MUZK (Formerly known as Keepsake) never ceases to amaze. He is undoubtedly one of the best hindi/urdu rappers of the country. His poetic lyrics and laid back delivery connects with the youth quickly. His style and lyricism is something that the young generation can relate to. And now he’s back with his brand new Youtube series called SESH. So we spoke to KRTK MUZK about SESH, and what its all about, and here is SESH, in the words of KRTK MUZK:
“I had this Idea since very long. That I should convert my songs into piano ballads. I make music for people who likes to chill. You know my whole discography is a like a diary of an introvert. Everyone is making club songs people go to clubs and dance to them. I thought what about people like me rather chill at home and listen to chill meaningful songs. So there you have it.”

Check out this episode of this all new web series called “Hip-Hop Homeland”, which features ACE from Mumbai’s Finest.
Hip Hop Homeland
The most in-depth look yet at the burgeoning Indian underground hip hop scene.
Hip Hop Homeland is a series of raw, gritty profiles about a fast emerging youth trend which cuts across gender, class and geography, and makes powerful statements of youth identity and voice. The first eleven videos cover the growth of the movement in Mumbai, spanning the entire scope of hip hop subculture – from rap to other forms of self-expression like dance and visual art.
This new trend is coming through the slums and the chawls, and the rappers covered in the series speak in a street `bhasha’ that draws on local languages in a quest for authenticity. The songs they sing are not about the Yo Yo flavoured escapist fantasy of clubs, cars and women, but about the real issues these artists face in their ‘hood’.
Within a broader cultural context, these are songs and experiences that India’s Bollywood culture has ignored, focussing instead on escapist fantasy. Brash and unafraid, this is the sound of a brave new India talking about what matters in real life. These are voices worth listening to and their words are being amplified across the internet to a broader audience.
Hip Hop Homeland begins in Mumbai but travels on to Kashmir, Shillong, Punjab, Calcutta and ends in South India. The first leg of the series is going to be broken down into 11 videos of about 4-6 mins each focusing on the west coast.
