Badshah lists out his favourite rappers.

1. Naezy


Naezy, because he brought out a whole new genre of ‘galli flow’. He brought Mumbai on the national map of rapping with galli flow, and I like that.

2. Sikander Kahlon

Sikander Kahlon

I think he’s the best Punjabi rapper out there. He’s not a gangster, he’s just a hustler from Mohali who goes to college, comes back home, raps. He has also been recognised internationally.

3. Raftaar


Raftaar is a trendsetter. He has taken rapping up a notch with songs like Swag Mera Desi and blurred the line between underground rap and commercial rap brilliantly.

4.Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick is a story, he’s a case study. West Coast didn’t have a rapper for a long time after Tupac, and Kendrick’s lyrics, his delivery is amazing. He put West Coast back on the map.

5. Drake


Drake is an all-time favourite. He’s just dope! He’s been on the billboards for eight years ever since he came into the rapping game and he is always going to be a favourite.
