Hip-Hop has gone through an evolution as a genre and has grown to become a culture of its own. India is a long way from the Bronx, but distance doesn’t waiver art and hip-hop has made its way from overseas to create a huge impact on our artistry and music. The current hip-hop scene in India is a unique mix of our traditions and rap culture and is a phenomenon of its own.
Through his upcoming music, Sameer has opted to pay homage to the beginnings of hip-hop and highlight the sounds of the genre from its early days.
