British Punjabi emcee, record producer and filmmaker Raf-Saperra, born Adeel Sardar Khan, has just premiered his debut “On The Radar” Freestyle at the iconic New York-based Drill radio station.
Sameera, who has now become the first Punjabi emcee to feature on On The Radar, performed his sprawling independent record “Modern Mirza” which further serves as the 14th track on the Punjabi singer and record producer’s debut mixtape “Ruff Around The Edges”.
Most recently, Drake & U.K. rap’s flagrant emcee Central Cee linked up for a hard-hitting “On The Road” freestyle. At the time, Drake laid bare the reasons behind his top spot in rap music and why he thinks that “Jesus” and “Julius Caesar” remind him of himself.
Raf-Saperra’s historic “On The Road” freestyle arrives amidst the rising emcee announcing his exclusive partnership with Nas’ record label Mass Appeal.
Last week, Saperra further confirmed that ‘new music with Mass Appeal India’ is in the works and arrives perhaps later this year.

This isn’t the first time Saperra is performing his massive single “Modern Mirza” at premier live music formats. Earlier this year, Raf linked up with record producer and DJ Bobby Kang for a provocative live set at Boiler Room, West London.
The emcee, who was further joined by Panjabi Hit Squad, Manj, Vedic Roots Sound System and DJ Ritu, did a rare live rendition of his massive single Modern Mirza and performed it over Giggs’ Dr Dre-produced breakthrough rap record “Talkin’ Da Hardest”.
