Punjab’s influential rapper, singer and songwriter Shooter Kahlon, born Sukhan Singh Kahlon, has shared a rare intimate conversation with the late Punjabi Hip-Hop and gangsta rap pioneer Sidhu Moose Wala.
The sprawling conversation, which continues for over three minutes, is a pervasive dive into Moosa’s generosity and provides a vivid look into his musicality.
The conversation, which is seemingly a phone call that Kahlon made to Moosa ahead of releasing “Game”, ranges from Moose Wala performing his guest verse on the rap record to suggesting the rap name “Shooter Kahlon” for the hard-hitting emcee on the come-up.
For many, “Game” is one of the most crucial rap records in Moose Wala’s discography. The track, produced by Kahlon himself, arrived a year ahead of Moose Wala’s extremely influential rap album “Moosetape” and served as a critical bridge between Sidhu’s debut LP “PBX1” and his final album.

Kahlon’s move serves as a moving tribute to Moosa. The slain rapper, who was shot dead in Punjab last year, continues to be remembered by the most influential rap artists of our times.
As reported earlier, Moose Wala, who was shot dead on 29, 2022, was honoured by global rap’s tall figures including Drake, Indian Hip-Hop royalty Divine, UK’s Burna Boy, Tion Wayne and MIST and Steel Banglez in the past few weeks.
Most recently, Birmingham’s legendary woman emcee Stefflon Don visited Moose Wala’s home in Mansa, Punjab on his birthday. During her brief stay, Don paid her respects to the “Moosetape” rapper’s father Balkaur Singh Sidhu and his mother Charan Kaur Singh.
Besides global rap pioneers, Moose Wala’s fans have remembered and honoured the legendary emcee in unprecedented ways. Culture Haze has reported at least two striking instances where fans expressed their admiration for Moosa.
Earlier this week, a Brampton neighbourhood unveiled an affecting mural dedicated to the slain rapper. In June, an ardent fan laid down a forged Sidhu Moose Wala star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles.
Rest in Peace, Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu.
