Detroit rapper and record producer Lazarus, oftentimes referred to as Dr Khan, has just teased his long-awaited EP with Indian Hip-Hop superstar Emiway Bantai. Titled “Detroit To Antophill”, Lazarus has recruited legendary Detroit emcee Swifty McVay on his debut collaborative effort with Bantai.

Notably, Lazarus & Emiway Bantai’s debut “Detroit to Antophill” EP was first confirmed by the former in November last year. At the time, Lazarus further revealed that the EP will feature a guest verse by the “Bad Meets Evil” affiliate Royce Da 5’9″.

As Indian Hip-Hop eagerly awaits Bantai’s sprawling collaborative effort with Lazarus, the ruthless emcee continues to raze through his discography with a slew of rap records.

Most recently, the Bantai Records label boss premiered his major label debut “Kudi”. The commercial track, which hasn’t quite made the impact that Bantai would’ve anticipated, was preceded by the rapper’s massive 17-track album “King of The Streets”.

As reported earlier, the “King of the Streets” album is home to numerous lead singles that the hard-hitting rapper has released across the year.

Besides entirely new rap records including “Roots”, “Classy Chapri”, “Meherbaani” and “Beta Karta Rap”, Bantai has featured his massive Indian Hip-Hop hits “Company”, “Chhod Dala”“Scene Change”“Kya Bolti Public” alongside Young Galib and “King of Hip-Hop”.

Further, the album consists of three distinct versions of “King of The Streets”.

From the EP title, it’s clear that the project will capture Bantai paying homage to his streets in Antophill. In fact, the fierce emcee linked up with Spotify India for a riveting short film dedicated to his people.

Titled “Beta Kya Karta Hai?”, or “What does your son do?”, the over 4-minute visual chronicles Bantai’s earliest days in his rap career and unprecedented rise in India’s global rap scene.

“Antop Hill is my hood. In a way, it’s like my very own 8 Mile,” Bantai said at the time.

Look out for Lazarus & Emiway Bantai’s “Detroit to Antophill” EP this year.
