1) Your latest drop “ye mera bombay ” was a wonderful track with great lyrics. Tell me something about the inspiration behind the track.
Born and Raised in Mumbai, I learned a lotta things from the city ,things that school didnt teach me.
Being an artist just gave me a chance to pay homage and respect to the queen of India thats what i call her.
Putting my vision into rhymes i decided to shoot a video for the song and guess what its the anthem of the streets right now.
