My work is for the people
“My work is for the people, I love my art and Hip Hop is my drug.”-‘Khatarnaak’, Sun J
After the much talked Bhanga Bangla release ‘Borof’, Awaaz today released RAW by Sun J, the leader and front man of the hip-hop collective Khatarnaak. Rapidly emerging as one of the most exciting talents in the South Asian hip-hop community, this New Delhi native has a distinct flow and tone that stands out for his listeners. Born to a family with roots dug deep in his hometown of Delhi, Sun J’s music provides us with a unique narrative about life in the capital of India.
“Raw” as the title suggests is about the raw talents possessed by the artist & his team. In the music video, numerous Bboys & Bgirls are featured alongside Sun J who keeps it raw and real throughout the piece. The production team of Noran & Vedang worked together and took inspiration from classic Hip Hop hits of the past to produce this record. The use of “desi” samples mixed in with a catchy beat, and unforgettable flow by Sun J, makes this track as raw as it can get.
When asked about the single, Sun J quoted a part of the song saying, “My work is for the people, I love my art and Hip Hop is my drug.”
Adds on Arjun Sankalia, Label Head- Awaaz, “ Sun J has a massive following within the hip-hop community and is gaining fans day by day. We’ll be working with him & the Khatarnak Crew closely and are excited to have them on our roster”
The Khatarnaak Hip-Hop Collective is ushering in the rebirth of hip-hop in India. The New Delhi based group is one of the first to holistically represent all 5 elements of Hip-Hop, founded by Sun J.
Sony Music’s hip-hop-focused imprint, Awaaz, is committed to grow hip-hop in India through an interesting mix of fresh sounds and artists.
