DHH – What got you into hip hop?
I have been close to Hip Hop music from very long. I was part of the street dancing team of my college. That is how Hip Hop music happened to me. But what really got me into writing was the amalgamation of our own language ( Punjabi & Hindi) to it, which is popularly known as Desi Hip Hop.
DHH – I’ve read that apart from rapping you’re into belly dancing as well, so who all are your inspirations?
Shakira and Meher Malik have been my main inspirations when it comes to belly dancing.
DHH – Being an Indian kid we comparatively face so much if we do something out of the way, being a girl doing it is even tougher in majority of cases. What all did you face while growing up as an artist?
Oh yes I have faced way too much as I am from a small city- Meerut. Society is the only issue my family always had. At times I have buried my aspirations because of that but I did not want to feel guilty within myself by the end, therefore I decided not to care.
DHH – What is your track ‘Bad Girl’ all about?
Bad Girl is Punit’s track. Sikander and I have a verse on it. Bad Girl is actually the first track I ever recorded. My verse on it is all about me as a person, regarding my likes and dislikes.
DHH – What does hip hop mean to you?
Hip Hop to me is freedom. Freedom to express whatever way you want. Freedom to be your own self.
DHH – Making tracks for fun is one of the main mantras artists follow these days, what’s your take on making a track on a serious issue? Do you ever wish to make one?
Definitely. In fact Invasion was also not a fun track. I have a lot of serious stuff written and let me tell you “Serious Issues” are always my priority.
DHH- What’s your take on the prevailing scenario about female rappers in the country and over the world?
It high time for girls to stand up and show what they got. We should come out together and help this culture grow.
DHH- Any message for the upcoming rappers?
Keep it UNITED !!
Keep it REAL !!
