Face the Rap
Three questions with rapper Raftaar
Q. Indian rappers have gained quite a fan following and mainstream success...
A. Real rappers put on real music and are storytellers. It’s not just four lines of Rap and four lines of chorus. Plus, the music behind it is groovy. People like that.
Q. What do you like to rap about? Who are your favourite Indian rappers?
A. I like rapping about real life stories, whatever I see. Among Indian rappers, I love Baba Sehgal. We have to give him a lot of credit for rapping back then. I also like Pakistani American rapper, Bohemia.
Q. What will your performance for MTV Coke Studio include?
A. There will be a mix of Punjabi, Classical, Rap and a lot more. I will be performing with Manj (earlier, a part of RDB). It will be a lot of fun.
The show airs on the first Sunday of every month at 8 pm
