Earlier this month, Dhruv Rajpal – professionally known as D₹V – released his thirteen-track sophomore LP ‘Nakshatra’ which featured guest appearances by some of the leading underground Hip-Hop acts including Darcy, Uday Bakshi, Boyblanck, Bombay the Artist and more.
The rapper has revealed that his album is this week’s feature on Apple Music ‘Up Next’ in India. Inspired by the American emcee and lyricist Gunna, D₹V’s latest LP is “a roving. psychedelic Hip-Hop odyssey told with evocative synths, striking beat switches and a liberal helping of guitar licks.” the Delhi-based rapper told Apple Music.
It’s a rarity for an underground emcee to be featured on the coveted Apple Music playlist. However, D₹V has established himself as one of the finest lyricists from Delhi’s underground rap scene and has a wide-ranging discography spanning his debut album ‘Dhruv Rajpal’, ‘Hot Sauce’ EP w/ Full Power & Darcy and singles including ‘Coco’, ‘South Delhi’ and more.
