Delhi’s influential underground emcee and record producer DRV, born Dhruv Rajpal, is gearing up for a solid elevation in his rap career. After proving his provocative lyrical prowess and hard-hitting music through top spots in Netflix’s “Class” and Amazon’s Shahid Kapoor starrer series “Farzi”, the young artist is gearing up for a new single.
Originally surfaced on Amazon’s TV series which starred Indian cinema superstars including Kapoor, Kay Kay Menon and Vijay Sethupati, ‘Farak Nahi Padta’ by Sachin Jigar is slated to drop on March 16th 2023. Notably, this is DRV’s debut effort with Sony Music alongside Nikhil Paul George. The record is penned down by Priya Saraiya and DRV himself.

Besides ‘Fark Nahi Padta’, DRV has a far-reaching discography at his disposal. The young has established himself as one of the finest lyricists from Delhi’s underground rap scene and his riveting body of work includes his debut LP “Dhruv Rajpal”, “Hot Sauce” EP w/ Full Power & Darcy and singles including “Coco”, “South Delhi” and more.
However, his sophomore LP “Nakshatra” remains his finest work yet. 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 record was released on November 10th 2023.
The thirteen-track sophomore LP “Nakshatra” features guest verses from some of the leading underground Hip-Hop acts including Darcy, Uday Bakshi, Boyblanck, Bombay the Artist and more. Shortly after the LP release, DRV linked up with Badkidz on “Double R” and honoured YSL’s legendary emcee Young Thug.
Look out for “Farak Nahi Padta” by DRV on March 16th 2023.
