If you thought hip-hop was only about partying, booze and splurging, then you're wrong. Mumbai's homegrown hip-hop scene is taking things back to the early 90's style of serious intense rap. One of the prominent faces in this is a rising rap artist called Naved Shaikh, who goes by the stage name of 'Naezy'. He's has been rapping for some time about his poverty-stricken upbringing and the life in suburban Mumbai.
His latest number is a high-octane rhyme called 'Haq Hai', where he goes on an all out rant against the government and its ineptitude. He talks about poverty and the holes in the system. From corruption to scams to farmer suicides, he makes a list of all the things that are wrong with the administration. He talks about standing up to them and fighting for our right.
Naezy's style of rapping kills two birds with one stone: Gives you food for thought and also gives you a sick beat to groove to.
