Bollywood actress Kiara Advani’s younger sibling, Mishaal Advani, made his foray as a rapper, composer, and music producer with the release of his track ‘Know My Name’ which hit the airwaves on Saturday.
The single is a coming-of-age hip-hop banger that straddles the line between humility and confidence as he comes to terms with his legacy, reality, and identity.
The 27-year-old artiste started his innings in the creative realm of music at the age of 13. After working as a software engineer, Mishaal Advani had a brief chance encounter with American hip-hop legend ASAP Rocky in Los Angeles. This gave him the perspective and motivation he was seeking to pursue music as a full-time profession.
Talking about his musical journey, Mishaal Advani said: “I’ve been in the studio for more nights than I’ve not, and this year marks 14 years since my first attempt at recording. I’ve really been blessed with being able to put together the right kind of music productions. It’s time for that catalogue to speak for itself now, and with God’s grace I’ll be a meaningful member of the music community of the future.”
Over the next couple of months, he will be dropping new singles that will see him flex his lyrical sensibilities and hip-hop aptitude.
