DesiHipHop's Hot Or Naah? (W/6)

Like every other week, we try to bring some of the hottest releases from the week for hip-hop listeners. These are hand-picked releases which are not arranged in any rankings and are equally important for the culture. Without any further ado, let’s see some of the dopest releases of this week from the underground scene.

1. Maarenge | Daranti Group feat. Bombay Lokal 

Maarenge is a hardcore desi hip-hop song, performed in Urdu, Punjabi, and Hindi. This cross-border Indo-Pak assault features Polymath and Haivaan from Daranti Group, representing Lahore. While Bombay Lokal’s GRAVITY and Shaikhspeare step up to rep their city. The track is produced by RJV Ernesto.

Daranti Group stated, “Basically, we wanted to deliver a pure dose of hardcore hip hop. We were sick of hearing the typical rich kid rap from Pakistani guys, especially in Urdu and Punjabi. Other Pakistanis are bumping some fake gangster shit while living a feudal life, so we wanted to give a real taste of the streets. We also learned a lot from Bombay Lokal during the making of this track.”

Bombay Lokal stated, “We also wanted to take shots at the rappers who rap in Desi languages but fail to deliver something that can be appreciated by the hardcore rap listeners in the Asian sub-continent. Daranti Group had already released their anthem song which had the similar old school feel and we knew that there cannot be a better song for both of the crews to collab on, having an objective of providing exposure to the hardcore rap at the heart of it.”

Furthermore, the lyrical video of this track is made by RBBT. As a matter of fact, the response that they have been getting so far from the listeners on both sides is overwhelming and it speaks volume that the game is about to change.

Significant lyrics From The Track

“Hindi rapperon ke khoon English Quarter me,

Tu asli deshbhakt? Ja ghar pe ja ke “Border” dekh,

Sahi-galat sikha na mujhko, Neta wale bhashan chod,

Keyboard warrior! Samne aa madarch*d.”

2. No Long Talk – Drake (Remix)| Yungsta

Yungsta dropped “No Long Talk – Drake (Remix)” which is dope AF. Also, this is the second back to back release from his side. Before this, he also dropped a remix of Badshah’s “Therapy”. Furthermore, Yungsta revisited “No Long Talk – Drake (Remix)” and his approach on this instrumental is extraordinary. He dropped some really stellar bars and judging by the reaction of folks checking this track out, it seems they were not prepared for it. Yungsta even suggested that he was just messing around to create a new flow over the beat and what finally came out is “No Long Talk – Drake (Remix)”.

Significant lyrics from the track

“I didn’t have a damn choice that’s why I didn’t stop,

Now they tell me that f*ck with me up in my inbox,

Saying what I mean I’ma be here till the things pop,

Every year all my tracks man they been hot.”

5. Matlab | Hurricane

“Matlab” is based on a journey of an artist. As a matter of fact, this is a concept based song. Hurricane tried to convey his feelings as three inner personalities.

He managed to do all the responsibilities of this project – from engineering of the track to editing and direction as well.

Significant lyrics from the track

“Naa Karan bnna asan, naa dete hain khudko chmaa,

Kastiyon pe behti, enki asthiyan ho jama,Khas ase bante, chintit ho-jata hai shma.

Khas ase bante, chintit ho-jata hai shma,Vishesh khashiyat, naa patein hain kuch-bhi kamaa.

Vishesh khashiyat, naa patein hain kuch-bhi kamaa.”
