Desi Hip Hop is growing in India and it is growing at a fast rate. There are tonnes of releases every week and at DesiHipHop, we try our best to watch out and listen to every one of those. Below are hot 5 Hip Hop tracks we’re feeling this week at DHH HQ.
1. 2017 FLOW – SIKANDER KAHLON (VIDEO)
‘2017 Flow‘ is a follow-up of Sikander Kahlon‘s famous single ‘2016 Flow‘ which was a sequel to his single ‘2015 Flow‘. Each instalment of this ‘Flow’ saga comes out on January 1 and this was the reason that this video came out on the same date. Sound Shikari reproduced this instrumental for ‘2017 Flow’ but with a twist. Sound Shikari added drums this time to give this addictive tune a different blend. Velly from VR Creative Films shot and edited this video to deliver this beautiful piece to Sikander Kahlon’s fans.

2. 2017 Flow – San Cha
‘2017 Flow‘ by San Cha came out as a surprise. He picked up a reproduced instrumental of YG‘s original release ‘2015 Flow‘ from Youtube and went hard on it. This is a treat for the people who prefer bars and punchlines over storytelling side of Hip-Hop. ‘2017 Flow’ also came out on January 1 of 2017 with only an audio version of the track. It seems like his fans will have to wait a bit more for his debut video.
