5 Times When Detroit-Rapper Lazarus Made Desi Hip-Hop Proud!


Lazarus has been in the game for a long time and as a matter of fact, has one of the most diverse catalogues ever. He has worked with likes of the Punjabi-Rap God, Bohemia to Slaughterhouse members, Royce Da 5’9 and KXNG Crooked. His contribution in increasing the awareness about our culture is indispensable and is one of the most prominent figures representing and supporting Desi Hip-Hop.


In fact, impeccable lyricism and a wicked flow are just few of the reasons why he is dominant in this rap business. However, if you thought all of this is not enough, he is also a practising physician. True story!

The following are some of his best works thus far and are in no particular order.

1. MTBK – Bohemia, Lazarus feat. Deep Jandu and Shaxe Oriah

“MTBK” was the benchmark for our culture this year. You can only expect mayhem when two titans as big as Lazarus and Bohemia come together on the same track. They paid a tribute to the late Sir Labh Janju through this track. The video also features a painting of the legend by Gaurav Lekhi from Delhi, India.

2. The Signal – Lazarus, Royce Da 5’9

“The Signal” is my personal favourite Lazarus track. He showcases his passion to rhyme and connects with Royce Da 5’9″ to rep his hometown of Detroit in this lyrical anthem. This track was introduced by Chuck D.

3. Fearless – Lazarus, KXNG Crooked

Lazarus teamed up with one of the best lyricists which the West-Coast has to offer. Laz joined hands with KXNG Crooked to drop a diss track for the U.S. President, Donald Trump. “Fearless” was received well and was shared all over the social media.

4. Drug of Choice – Lazarus, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

This was among the first batch of tracks which Lazarus did. On the other hand, “Drug of Choice” featured the voice of the great and late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The video was filmed in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. “Drug of Choice” also had Laz rapping in Urdu for a verse.

5. Let The Game Know – Lazarus

“Let The Game Know” was the first time I heard Laz and it had me searching for his other tracks. This was quite an introduction and has him throwing straight bars about why he is needed in the rap game.

DesiHipHop fam wishes Lazarus a very happy birthday. We hope the heavyweight rapper drops bars on bars each year!
