Further, Gully Gang’s ruthless rappers MC Altaf, Sammohit & D’Evil will join the many performers at the two-day festival in Pune.
Last year, NH7 Weekender recruited Dreamville’s iconic emcee J.I.D. to headline the concluding day of the 3-day festival. In fact, the “Ma Boy” and “Surround Sound” rapper was joined by numerous Hip-Hop heavyweights at the time including India’s rap royalty Kr$na, record producer Sez on The Beat, Seedhe Maut, Hanumankind, Rawal, Yashraj, and MC Altaf.
On the music side of things, YG released his flagrant joint LP “Hit Me When U Leave The Club” with Tyga – another legendary emcee from Compton last month. The “HMWYLTK: The Playlist” features gust verses from rap icon Lil Wayne, Blxst and legendary rapper Busta Rhymes.
Interestingly, Tyga himself performed in Pune earlier this year.
For the Pune-bred rapper, the announcement arrives within days after Ikka confirmed Stan’s guest verse on is forthcoming rap LP.
Look out for NH7 Weekender in Pune this year December 1 & 2.
