The super exciting one is Ek Se Aanth which is a translate from 1 to 8. It is the latest India streets of “India Grime”. It talks about the real life and the reel picture that is shown to the world.
You will not get over the next track Maqsad- “Aim”. The melody is the experiment between Vocal percussion and Hindi Rap music
