The JawDroppeR – Never Back Down
Akash Tripathi a.k.a The JawDroppeR is a rapper from Siliguri, a small city located in West Bengal. He’s been rapping since 2011 and trying to represent Siliguri in the scene. Siliguri is a place where hip hop music had no influence. It was always influenced by rock music but when people started bumping his tracks they loved his tracks and showed him full support and that’s how he made it locally. Siliguri is a beautiful place from outside but internally it is affected by drugs and murders.
After losing his couple of friends in 2011 he cut himself from the world and started channelizing his loss and frustration through music. This is what inspired him to rap besides 50 cent and Tupac. Being surrounded by brown sugar dealers and weed pedlars he saw what street life is, And this is the reason why his songs contain less punches and bars and more of reality and street stuff. Being a choreographer first he taught dance to kids and the money he made paid his recording dues. Now He aims to put Siliguri on the hip hop map of the world as he believes that whatever he is right now is coz of his city. “My city made me who I am and I’m for my city and I love my city”
