Indian underground Hip-Hop’s leading emcee, filmmaker and songwriter Bhaktaaa has released his magnum opus debut “Kaan Ke Neeche”. Clocking at nearly 25 minutes, the record is released through the INKALAAP collective and features guest verses from Indian Hip-Hop pioneers Seedhe Maut, Sez On The Beat, Quest, Rebel 7, Zero Chill, Blunt, Mr Roxx, Huzur & Hisab.
Spanning 11 hard-hitting rap records, the LP is a ruthless provocation by Bhaktaaa and serves as, perhaps, the most ambitious and cohesive underground rap record in years.
Via the ‘Seedhe Maut’ banner, Indian Rapstars Calm and Encore extend their support to the emcee on “7:30” alongside Kya BC, Sez On The Beat captures Bhaktaaa’s underlying rap bravado on “Karaamat” and amidst consistent independent releases, Gairkanooni‘s Quest drops his guest verse on “Dinozames” alongside Hisab, Rebel 7 drops fierce bars on “Jeevan Daan.”
Further, DJ Blunt, who often tours with Seedhe Maut across India, joins the emcee on a prelude “KKN” while Mr Roxx links up on the LP’s interlude “Nayi Fees”. Just ahead of releasing his debut album, Bhaktaa linked up with Seedhe Maut, Kya BC and Hisab. Check it out here.
The young emcee’s brief yet affecting discography consists of numerous hard-hitting rap records including “Daulat Shaurat”, “Neend Nahi Aati”, “Majaal”, “Ju Jitsu” and “Vahi Modd”. Notably, besides being a ferocious emcee, Bhaktaaa is a provocative filmmaker, Hip-Hop photographer and a prominent member of the underground Hip-Hop consortium ‘Inkalaap The Collective’.
Some of his notable works include filming ’11K’ by Seedhe Maut alongside Kya BC and yashwithano, ‘Nanchaku Behind the Scenes’ by Seedhe Maut feat. MC Stan, the ‘Nayaab.World‘ documentary, ‘Chahiye‘ and ‘BOP‘ by Rebel 7, ‘BeMe’ by Azadi Records’ JeLo and more.
