Good news for Desi Hip Hop fans, we got the old Raftaar back with the latest release “I’m Ready” with KR$NA. After a long time fans can see him in the fierce avatar that built his own lane!
“KR$NA tries his best to bring back the old Raftaar in it. Personally, I feel this is the best verse I wrote after so many years. Working with talents like KR$NA and Deep Kalsi, made me feel special and I can feel that hunger inside them. DNH gang will surely put Indian hip-hop on the map.” – Raftaar
Breathtaking and LAD did the production for “I’m Ready”. Also, Sukhpreet Singh did the mixing and Raftaar did the mastering for “I’m Ready”. The Mumbai based video direction team-CanFuse did the video for the track. The track was released via Zee Music Company. Now, talking about the track, KR$NA starts off with his verse painting a picture of his struggles and how he got backstabbed by his friends and close ones.
Raftaar’s verse was the best thing we have heard so far. The way he depicted the story of his life in 16 bars was amazing. As a matter of fact, we have not seen Raftaar going in on like this tracks since a very long time. In context with “I’m Ready”, Raftaar stated, “This track basically shares a bond between us that we are one. I’m you and you are me. I’m the voice for you. If you want people should listen to your voice, I will become your voice. I’m chilling in Athens with KR$NA and Ankit Khanna and seeing the positive response about the tracks feels so good.”
Significant lyrics from the track
“Kaafi saal tak kharche na meri maa ne paise nayi saree pe,
Main rehta kiraye pe tha Dilli mein Burari mein,
Karke safar main safar mein sawar gya,
Kothi ha Rajori mein aur neeche chaar gadi hain.”
