Shaikhspeare drops his First video, titled “All Men Must Die”, featuring Shaman, from his upcoming mixtape “Underground Uprising”. The track is a very powerful socio-political rap, which is based on TV Series “Game of Thrones”. Shaikhspeare compares the story of Game of Thrones to the situation of modern day world.
Shaikhspeare is an independent emcee from Mumbai who will be releasing his second mixtape titled “Underground Uprising” this year. This music video is the first single from it.
It is a musical synopsis of how we humans have time and again paved a path of our own destruction for the unending greed of power and money.
The beat is produced by “Natiq” (a young producer from New Delhi) which is based on “Game of Thrones” theme. Shaikhspeare along with Shaman (one-half of the duo “ Highbred” from Bengaluru) came up with an idea of incorporating the GOT’s storyline into the content and intertwining it with the world’s historical, socio-political, economic and environmental situation.
The video is shot and edited by “Nikhil Vaiude”(from Mumbai) which depicts the resemblance between “GOT” and the real world incidents. It also commemorates the martyrs and the revolutionaries who have inspired millions of us to resist and fight for freedom, justice and equality in order to shape up a better world.

From the creator of the hit single “Mere Gully Mein” comes an anthem for the urban jungle – “Jungli Sher”. The song written, co-composed and performed by DIVINE is his life’s story from the gullies of Mumbai, representing the voice of the common man.
Produced by Sony Music India and helmed by director Vandana Kataria, this video was shot on iPhone 6s in 43 locales over 4 days and nights in Mumbai.
A local boy from the slums of Mumbai, DIVINE has crafted his journey from growing up in the streets to now being a poster boy. His award winning 2013 release “Yeh Mera Bombay” went viral and thereafter received exposure on local radio stations across the country. His 2015 summer-smash “Mere Gully Mein” was not only honored as the ‘Best Video of 2015’ by Rolling Stone Magazine, but further established him as one of the premier hip-hop acts that garnered him an international listenership through plays on Beats1. He was also awarded ‘Best New Artist 2015’ by iTunes and Apple Music in India and as one of the top 6 artist to watch-out for in 2016 by the BBC Asian Network.
With DIVINE, every song has a premise and every line has a deep rooted meaning and “Jungli Sher” is exactly that.

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.

Well well, what a year it is indeed for Hip-Hop scene in India.
We started the year with not one but two amazing videos on January first. And then we heard an audio, with a girl rapping over Dr. Dre’s famous “Still Dre” instrumental, which completely blew our minds away. Well, She goes by the name of SIRIUS, and she is back with a brand new track along with ROE. The track is called “Anybody” and is produced by BluntedBeatz. ROE is also the man behind the music video, Which is itself a piece of art. The Video is very simple yet creative
Here is what SIRIUS told us when we asked her about the track:
“Rohit (ROE) did the editing(Video) and everything
I helped him put it together
The rap is mostly all the pent up thoughts on how everything around was weighing me down lacking progress. Wanted to do something about it, and came up with those bars. That feeling was mutual to him too so decided to make a track on it. It was a quick decision and went ahead with it. Kinda random actually”
2015 has been the biggest year for Indian Hip-Hop scene. So many amazing artists coming up, Hip-Hop on national TV and what not. And what a way it is to start the new year. We start 2016 with this brand new music video by Dhaval Parab, better known as D’Evil. Accompanying him on the track is India’s leading Female Hip-Hop artist Dee MC.
The track is called “Learn”, And it is all about the struggles that almost each and every artist goes through. Video has been Shot by Kedar Amburle, and it is nothing less than a piece of ART.
