Pune’s hard-hitting rapper Sambata, born Pratham Sunil Jogdand, has finally released his major label debut. Titled “Sod Lacharicha Paksh”, the single arrives after a slew of independent rap records which established Sambata’s stature as one of the most influential Marathi rappers in the game.
The rap record, which is released through India’s coveted record label Def Jam Recording India, arrives after it was first teased by the label itself on July 7th. It was later confirmed by the ‘Don’ of ruthless vernacular rap records as he shared the exclusive artwork.
Notably, “Sod Lacharicha Paksh” is produced by Sambata’s longtime collaborator and record producer Khakiee.
The record arrives alongside a hard-hitting visual treatment. Directed by Mayur Naikode, the music video captures Sambata’s incendiary rap life and marks his slight return to rap music after a long hiatus of over a year.

For many, Sambata is one of the most influential Hip-Hop artists on the come-up. With a brief yet affecting discography, Sambata has established his stature as a ruthless gangsta rap emcee and represents Pune’s street codes through provocative Marathi vernacular.
Over the years, Sambata has released four independent rap records – “Pinnak”, “Kaarte Nibaar”, “Nako Raste Changle” and his sprawling debut “Palti Fire”.
As for Def Jam India, the record arrives amidst a slew of flagrant releases by the converted rap label. Most recently, Def Jam India linked up with Kolkata’s hard-hitting emcee J Trix on “Gundagardi” featuring Ikka. It was preceded by Tricksingh’s major label debut “Shor”.
