With his record label Fazilpuria records, the artist plans to give platform to those artistes who don’t have access to the music industry. The project to find good artistes from Haryana is at the beginning stages but the rapper whose latest song Jimmy Choo which was a rage on youtube with over 5 million hits launched his friend and fellow artist Priyanka Goyat who is from Haryana as well.
