Hip-Hop certainly is making major moves this year and the graph is going up and up in India. Young Hip-Hop talents are explored and picked out of the bunch. This is the boost that we as a culture have been working towards. Desi Hip Hop has found its way into the Bollywood industry more than ever nowadays.
Rajnikanth has not just been a phenomenal actor in the Tamil film industry, he has ruled it for decades. The aura surrounding the name itself has been one of excellence and simplicity alike. He is currently working on his next movie titled “Kaala”. And we’ve come to know that the rap crew “Dopeadelicz” has been chosen to play roles in the movie!
Firstly, Dopeadelicz is a rap crew hailing from the streets of Dharavi. They are a promising and prominent crew out of the place where the most number of hip hop crews reside in Mumbai. Dopeadelicz made a name for themselves after releasing songs like “Legalize it” & “Stay Dope Stay High”. They gained large popularity and have also performed at various venues and festivals along the way.
The Crew & The Movie
The movie is based around and on Dharavi and the group plays a rap gang in the movie themselves. This idea is fun to watch and contemplate as it isn’t far off from who they are in real life. This is a very big break for the rap group and we’re also excited to see what the whole process will bring out.
As a matter of fact, MC Mawali from the rap group Swadesi is also involved with Dopeadelicz in the movie. And so is Abhishek from 7Bantais crew. The emcees are working in collaboration with veteran music director Santosh Narayan. Moreover, Pa Ranjith is on the director seat of the movie. Wunderbar Films, which is Dhanush’s company is the official production banner.
Tony Sebastian (aka Stony Psyko) of Dopeadelicz crew says that they always dreamed of working with the Tamil industry, seeing how they were far away from the land. He further states that as soon as this opportunity arrived, all of them unanimously seized it. This is the dream project for them, and may many more come their way! We are awaiting the movie and it’s music. Furthermore, the film cast as of today also names Nana Patekar on the roster. As all Rajni films do in glorious fashion, this movie and it’s music is all set to go super hit!
