Enkore’s End-Of-The-Year Lists 1 : Insignian Awards

Hello and welcome to my end-of-the-year lists! This is the first..

The Insignian Awards.



Best Rappers (English):

Savage

Lyrically hot, great emotion in his voice and flows fucking well too! Just feel maybe he can work on diversifying his subject matter a bit..

Emcee Feral

Probably the hardest working rapper at Insignia.. Improved hella lot since Jan! Stilll shows some grammatical and pronunciation problems but has amazing flow.. Isn’t afraid to experiment, and his expirements more often than not pay off. Makes beats too. Damn!

GD $ingh

One of the best rappers in Insignia for commercial tracks but has been improving his lyrics steadily too. Real good flow, delivery is solid and emotions are on point.

Best Textcees:

InfinitZ

Dominates matches. What Thierry Henry was at Arsenal at his peak, same was with InfinitZ.. He’s so good and his arrogance makes defeating him seem almost impossible. Impenetrable almost.. Though HOD and Sarosh proved otherwise. Wordplays are amazing, multies are off the wall and basically.. Some crazy muthafucking punches.

Brassic Bhai

Been going at it for a minute now and he just does not seem to let up. I personally love his structure, simplicity in his punches and the concepts he picks.. Also a mentor to loads of budding rappers.

Sarosh

Emerged seemingly outta nowhere to wrestle matches out of the grasp of the likes of InfinitZ, HOD, etc. Staked his claim rather emphatically as one of THE Textcess to reckon with.

Mixtape Of The Year:

The D.E.S.I. Mixtape

An amazing effort put together by Undefined Power.. Filled with bangers in Hindi, Punjabi and English.. Really showcased and represented desi rap the way it should be.

Crew Of The Year:

F.B.I. – The Verbal Prophetz

Consisting of Emcee Feral, Savanna, Rakshit, Explyrix and Sabbii, FBI have an amazing blend of many different skills and talents.. Each of their members brings something different to the table. And what’s even better is that the strengths of each member seem to rub off on the rest. Their hard-working, passionate attitude further vindicates claim for this title.

Best Rappers (Regional):

Nottie Dogg

He may not release tracks THAT often, but there is almost a regularity in his releases and even more is the consistency we’ve come to hear and expect from him. One of the best punjabi rappers around, full stop.

Crack

Seem to come out of nowhere in the D.E.S.I. Mixtape and since then has had collaborations with different rappers in Insignia and has been improving his already strong flow delivery and swag, with constantly commendable lyrics..

Sikander

Started off as ‘NewGame’.. Seemed horribly wannabe and a big poser. Slowly though shed his name, his image and then he was partaking in a New Game. One of the best punjabi rappers here now, in my opinion. His flow delivery and swag are very good. But what I think gives him an edge despite maybe not being STAND-OUT at flow or swag is his delivery.. He’s one punjabi rappers who doesn’t seem to have a Bohemia-esque flow and that I really appreciate. Can work on lyrics though.

Beef Of The Year:

MWA vs. Brassic Bhai ( or Battle Shelter vs. Insignia)

The plain reason I pick this over the FBI vs. Brain Sickness beef is the rap content. There was hardly any BS(no pun intended) and most of it was based on rap. Both sides had some amazing diss tracks, either flow-wise, or lyrically. ‘Cocksuckers’ by Brassic was one of the best disses I’ve heard lyrically.. And I think this previously recurring beef brought out the best in him. And the skit was of almost legendary proportions. With MWA, though it seemed almost half-hearted and without much effort.. Almost like they had to respond more than they wanted to, their diss against Brassic and a few other Insignians – ‘With Love’ was absolutely amazing in almost all aspects.. Other than lyrics though, with Brassic clearly outshining them in that aspect. This one probably ended even, in my opinion and that’s another reason this was an amazing beef. Other than the 2 Main Event diss tracks, there were many other off-shoot disses, beefs, text battles, etc. Now though, things are cool.. And I’m a huge fan of MWA as well as Brassic Bhai!

To Look Out For in 2o1o:

Undefined Power

Despite some bangas this year, as well as some bomb beats produced by him, I feel we’ve only seen the tip of this iceberg.

Hustler

He’s developing well and keeps adding new aspects to his skills. Came very close to clinching the Multies tournament recently, an evidence of his improvement in one part which seemed lacking earlier.

Arijit

Seems to blend old-school and new school very well with his style, and is still only new to rapping. His tracks yell out “POTENTIAL!” to me!

Desi Rapper Interviews : A “Kronik” interview

Nottie: welcome BIG Kronik to the Desi rapper interviews with Nottie D-O-Double G
Kronik: well ya welcome’s accepted… what I should 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 endd 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 friends 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 aint 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 past out even b4 i was born…no bad words but i jus 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 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 should 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!!!”
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/rap from what u say underdawgs, the bto is gon 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 should be…. i think instead of beefin with each other first we should 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 should 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

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”
