Thanks to Gully Boy, underground Indian rappers came into the limelight but there’s still a lot of distance to cover. After Divine, artists like Emiway Bantai are gaining huge popularity and from hereon, the future looks promising.
Speaking about the Indian rap scene, today we’ll be compiling some of the underrated Indian rap songs. Take a look.
Aisa Kuch Shot Nai Hai (Emiway Bantai)
We all know for his feud with Raftaar and hits like Machayenge. But even before that, the Indian rap artist was highly popular due to his relatable use of words. His ‘Aisa Kuch Shot Nai Hai’ surely gives you a ‘Bambaiya’ feel.
Dopeadelicz (Aai Shapath Saheb Me Navtho)
Sung by Stony Psyko and Dope Daddy, the song has an interesting story behind it as it’s inspired by a true event. The flow and storyline strike you instantly. The entire Indian system is beautifully explained through Marathi rap.
Released in 2018, Junoon is a gem by Divine. Through the song, the rapper explains his hardships. It’s unbelievable to see how he manages to fit his life in rap, without losing the flow.
Pagal Hai Kya (Fotty Seven)
This one too was released in 2018. Sung, composed and written by Fotty Seven, the rap song is about hard-hitting realities of friendships. Also, the song is high of cuss words, so prefer earphones.
Tan Tan Bhan Bhan (Shambho Rap)
This one is another Marathi rap on the list. Written and sung by Umesh Khade, the rap song is all about becoming self-dependent. Even if you don’t understand the language, you will be hooked by the tune and the verse.
Asal Hustle (Naezy)
And last but definitely not the least! Naezy’s Asal Hustle deserves a special mention. He’s amongst those underground artists, who are considered pioneers of ‘Bambaiyya rap’. In this particular rap song, Naezy spills out the struggles and life of Mumbai.
