Mumbai’s ruthless emcees Slowcheeta, born Chaitanya Sharma and D’Evil, born Dhaval Parab have linked up on a new hard-hitting rap record. Titled “90’s Ke Ladke”, the almost three-minute banger traverses wild rhyme schemes by two of the finest lyricists in Indian rap music.
Produced by Inkheart, “90’s Ke Ladke” asserts the old-school influences of Slow C and the “DripCheck” emcee amidst an unprecedented transition in rap music globally. Across the record, Slowcheeta and D’Evil prophecize about remaining yourself and not falling for high fashion and vanity which has now become a Hip-Hop mainstay.
Notably, Slowcheeta was one of the earliest emcees to rise to national prominence after the release of Bollywood’s cult motion picture “Gully Boy”. Starring Hindi Cinema’s fine actors Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, the historic film served as an avenue for numerous emcees to put forth their incredible rap music and unprecedented confidence.
Some of the emcees featured in the “Gully Boy” movie alongside SlowCheeta were Indian Hip-Hop superstar Emiway Bantai, Kr$na and MC Altaf. As per many, the motion picture was inspired by the lives of Indian Hip-Hop royalty Divine and Naezy.
