Rapper Badshah and Raftaar are big guns in the Indian rap culture, but Hard Kaur says she feels no competition from anyone. The duo has been coming out with Bollywood chartbusters and new singles routinely.

However, the Glassy hit-maker feels no pressure. She said, “The song is not a competition to any one because I am still waiting to get jealous. I am waiting to get to a time where I hear a rapper and think he is better than me, so I should be working more on myself. I have not seen any competition to me yet.”

The singer went on to say that industry gives preference to NRIs more than the talent they already have here. “It would be wrong to say that we don’t have rappers in our country. It’s all about exposure which lacks in the country because NRIs get chance before anyone else. Things are better now because of the digital scenario. There are good rappers like Divine, Fateh and few more, they are the people who deserve the push.”

She added that people should educate themselves about the art of rap and kinds of rap that happen across the globe.

“Even in India, you will see different kinds of rapper but people still complain because they don’t explore and just complain that there is same stuff. They need to educate themselves about rap,” the 37-year-old said.

Hard Kaur has released her new single Sherni, a song that talks about women empowerment.

She also marks the song as a strong comeback in the Indian music industry and hopes to inspire women across the country.
