Delhi based rapper Akash Tripathi aka Jaw is all set with his latest release “Fake You”. The rapper has established a name for himself from the battle scene. Not just that, Akash who was known by the moniker of Jaw Dropper earlier has killed many cypher sessions as well. He’s been representing his city Delhi and hometown Siliguri to the fullest.
“Fake You” by Jaw is a raw gritty bars on bars track written in Hinglish. The rapper makes smooth flow switches between Hindi and English, all the while keeping the vibe intact. “Fake You” is produced by Jass, who has induced some Reggaeton into the joint. Swearing has never been off limits for Jaw who believes in utmost freedom of expression, so expect no less from “Fake You”.
Music video for the song has been shot at multiple locations in Delhi primarily during night, to create the fierce Delhi nights aura. Directed by The Last Scene, music video for “Fake You” has lots of VFX making it more engaging and visually appealing. Jaw and Jass’s meeting also has an interesting story behind it.
Jaw stated, “After the release of Audible Brain the EP with RXGE I kinda went silent because of my hectic job. But thanks to that I met Jass at my workplace and the bond just grew. He being an amazing producer never put anything out until now. He too was caught up with a lot of things. One fine day he hit me up with a beat I vibed with it and here we are!”
Talking about the track Jaw stated, “The message in the track is pretty clear. If you don’t do it don’t fake it. They talk about trapping and hustling in their songs while in reality they just live a happy life financed by their dads and there is no problem with it unless you start lying in your songs. Keep it real!”
