Indian Underground Rappers Whose Bars Are Above The Sky

Indian Underground Rappers Whose Bars Are Above The Sky

Bohemia will forever be the first fire that is the reason for the heat that the Indian hip-hop scene is now producing. Desi Hip-hop has evolved a lot, but currently is the time when it is at its peak and is at a stage where rappers can turn their bars into lavish lifestyles just like the Western Rappers. 

We all get entertained by rap songs flexing money and luxuriousness, but rap, in reality, is a form of poetry recited in a rhyme over the beats. India has names like Yo Yo Honey Singh, Badshah, and Raftaar making viral rap songs, but few people know about Indian Underground rappers.
