Dee MC kicked off her weekly series ‘The Fifth Element’ coming to your quarantined screens every Tuesday at 10pm IST. In her own words she aims to bring hip-hop to the audience since there’s nothing happening in the outside world with hip-hop. Shows and other major events can be anticipated to be on a lockdown for several months due to the corona outbreak. However, the action doesn’t stop!
Desi Hip Hop has come up with a series of weekly live shows to keep the audience engaged. Starting with Dee’s ‘The Fifth Element’, the week also features a show from Peotik Justis called ‘Press Play Weekly’ as well as a ‘Freestyle Friday’ session hosted by Gujubhai himself. The freestyle Friday session is also a giveaway contest where emcees stand the chance of winning 5,000 INR every single week. All they have to do is participate in the challenge and drop fire bars, a winner is chosen by Gujubhai and the week’s guest judge together.
On the other hand, Dee MC chooses to focus on the fifth and the most neglected element of hip-hop i.e. ‘Knowledge’. The rapper sheds her own unique perspective to the latest happenings in the desi hip hop scene. From choosing her Hot 5 of the week, to bringing on fresh raw talent to showcase their craft on the live session, Dee’s segment is more on the interactive end. Every week a well-known guest emcee also joins her for a quick one-on-one chat. Discussing their hustle, what they’re up to in the lockdown, ending with of course some much-needed bar to bar exchange between the host and the guest.
