The Don of Bombay Vijay DK has finally premiered the visual treatment to his most recent rap single “Goosebumps”. The single, which was first released in June of this year, marked DK’s slight return to cult street rap that captures the personal lives of his people in Eastern Mumbai’s Mankhurd suburb.
Notably, the single serves as the follow-up to his sprawling rap record “Dil Se Dil Tak”. Released in January, the independent Westcoast Records track sits at almost 20 million streams on Spotify and YouTube alone.
However, the two records are in stark contrast in terms of their own individual sounds. While “Dil Se Dil Tak” continued DK’s unprecedented foray into raw Pune drill, the “Lockup No 4Three” rapper’s latest single rests more on his pensive lyricism over a minimalist snare-heavy production.

Besides his influential Hip-Hop and Drill records, Vijay DK is further known for his striking resemblance with Pune’s rap superstar MC Stan vis-à-vis rap demeanours and musicality. While Stan comes off as more experimental and often traverses Hip-Hop, Drill and Autotune in his rap records, DK’s flow on drill tracks often runs parallel to the “P-Town” emcee.
Owing to their slick style of rapping and provocative storytelling, fans have been longing for a collaborative effort between the two.
Interestingly, Vijay DK’s “Goosebumps” music video arrives on Stan’s 24th birthday.
The rapper, who is reportedly working on his third LP with a confirmed guest verse from Tyla Yaweh, premiered his latest single “Nusta Paisa” at midnight. Earlier today, Stan premiered that hard-hitting visual treatment of the self-produced single too.
