It’s a new week and that means a new Hot 5!
As you know, there are tonnes of Desi Hip Hop and we try our best to watch out and listen to every one of those. Below are the hot 5 Tracks we’re feeling this week at DHH HQ.
1. ‘MERCY’ – BADSHAH
Badshah promised that this drop would not be like any other. The rapper had full confidence that a tune like this hasn’t been made anywhere in the world. Just a few hours after the video released, the hype became real. Fans are rejoicing this fresh drop and the video has a lot of repeat value. Hollywood to Bollywood star Lauren Gottlieb has been featured as the leading lady besides Badshah. Catchy tunes, exotic locations, maximum swag outfits – ‘MERCY’ has everything in its video.

2. ‘LET ‘EM TALK’ – BRODA V
‘Let Em Talk‘ is a pure Brodha V product with the perfect amount of Indian elements mashed in the beat. V has stuck to his Southside roots in the production. Whereas in the lyrics he chose the old school hip-hop route with punches and multis. It wouldn’t skip anyone’s attention that V has taken a lot of shots in ‘Let Em Talk’. Major ones were on commercial hip-hop artists Honey Singh and Badshah. This track oozes with Brodha V’s self-confidence and his desire to achieve greatness. Much like the essence of an emcee from any country, V calls himself as the face of Indian Rap.
