While Sid J is known to be the first voice on every 7BantaiZ song, Mr. Scam is known for his versatile verses and flows. Scam represents the Tamil audience that Dharavi boasts of and Sid J spits fire bars in the most commonly understood language – Hindi. Sid recalls how the whole crew got to formation due to the very desire of representing their hood to the fullest. Not only have they made the people around them proud by their work in Gully Boy and with Rajnikanth, they also come through for their neighbourhood when in need.
Raising their voice against the menace of society, politics as well as the current corona pandemic, this crew has been unstoppable. Being socially conscious comes through in all their music and together as Dharavi United their collective voice is a force to be reckoned with. Sid J and Scam performed two brilliant unreleased verses from the upcoming 7BantaiZ EP. Furthermore, the crew is also working on an album with the whole Dharavi United collective.
