EXCLUSIVE: Honey Singh on obstacles Rap is facing in India: “India will still take some time to accept Rap”

en Bollywood News EXCLUSIVE: Honey Singh on obstacles Rap is facing in India: “India will still take some time to accept Rap”

Rap or Indian Hip-Hop culture has been quite popular in India because most of the artists have chosen to rap in their own regional languages, be it whether Tamil, Punjabi or Assamese. This not only allows them to express themselves fluently but also connect better with their peers in the hinterlands. However, to reach greater heights, it is also important for a rapper to be versatile so as to reach greater number of audiences.

In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, when asked about the importance of a rapper being versatile, Honey Singh said, “It is very much important for the rappers to be versatile because we have an audience of 1.4 billion, and everyone has their own preference on what they would like to hear. Rap is for sure spreading successfully, but the audience is still very limited. Rap has the potential to expand even more”.

Opening about the obstacles rap is facing in India, Honey said, “The issue is, from past 70-80 years, our Indian public is addicted to melodies. These melodies are steeped deep inside our souls. Rap on the contrary to melodies, has no scale. If I had to explain in the language of music, I would say Rap is comparatively a dissonant song (Besura gaana). To accept it, India will still take some time. I believe Emiway Bantai is definitely a very versatile artist”.

On the work front, Singh recently released a recreation of Rahman’s song ‘Yai Re’. Produced by Tips Music, the new track features Iulia Vantur as the female voice. He also released a song Gatividhi starring alongside Mouni Roy.
