Punjab’s leading emcee and record producer Ellde Fazilka has made a far-reaching debut with Def Jam Recordings India. The “You Know The Drill” rapper has released his latest single “This is Punjab”. Written, performed and produced by Fazilka himself, the single is a riveting tribute to his people and arrives alongside a hard-hitting visual treatment.
Notably, this is Fazilka’s fourth single this year. Besides his latest rap record, Fazilka released a slew of affecting records including “Da Bomb”, “Morni” and “Far Off”. However, ‘This is Punjab’ is Fazilka’s first rap record with a label of Def Jam’s stature.
While the visuals pay homage to Punjab‘s heritage and document its streets, uber-cool elements such as big Rubicon jeeps, vintage cafe racer motorcycles and high fashion run parallel. Even on the record, Fazilka engineers and performs a provocative concoction of raw Punjabi folk and classic Hip-Hop.
