Sun J’s recent drop “Seedhe Slum Se” represents his background poetically while staying true to the hip-hop art form. In fact, the beat was made by Sun-J himself and is filed with classic old-school soulful vibe. The lyricism used by Sun J proves his ruthlessness and his flow on the instrumental is on point. The hook of “Seedhe Slum Se” is catchy and can be addictive.

Significant lyrics from the track:

“Fame se matlab mujhe na bas izzat se leta sabki maar,
Mere bars sabhi lage rattne
Jagah Mohammadpur ye basti azad
Jahan paida hua mai hu khada abhi tak us ghar ki chatt pe”

Losing My Mind” is a peppy number with catchy beats and beautiful execution from both of the artists. Enkore plays rhythmic verses first in English which is his forte. And later in Hindi, which he has been experimenting with recently. Listeners can surely put this track on repeat mode, as it has great potential to become a fan favourite. Enkore has been releasing music under the team tag Wide Octaves apart from Dreamteam. The song id good and deserves to be in Hot 5 of the week.

Significant lyrics from the track:

“We good bro. Yeah! Yeah! We good bro,
Been happy since I quit Hollywood, though.
Making good love, not making good, though,
I did better than I ever thought I would, though.” – Enkore

“Talash” has the calm of Rhymix‘s smooth and melodic verse and the storm that is GRAVITY‘s multi’s and in-rhymes filled aggressive verse. This is an experimental banger with no hooks and just 2 verses on a banging beat. It is something that is not done a lot in the Desi hip-hop scene. Both Gravity and Rhymix are a part of Death Clutch and hip-hop collective Bombay Lokal. “Talash” was produced by Brayne Dead.

Significant lyrics from the track:

“Baadalon se seekha hai ke neeche sab kuch feeka hai,
Kehna kuch aur matlab kuch tha, ye mera tareeka hai.
Tareeke pe tashreef hai, badmaash thodey shareef hain,
Jo lagta hai wo kehta hun, ajeeb hai par naseeb hai” – Rhymix
