Rap music has certainly become a popular form of music in India. It has produced a slew of new rappers in the country, resulting in a variety of top rappers in India today. Mumble rap, rap metal, lyrical rap, and desi hip-hop are among the most popular genres. Rap music has helped in the reconciliation of poetry, emotion, and instrumentation. It’s one-of-a-kind music in which the rapper expresses his struggles, feelings, current events, and prior experiences — everything relatable.
We know the top artists like Honey Singh, Raftaar, and Badshah who merge hip-hop with pop and provide the new taste to the Indian audience with a commercial atmosphere before the revolution of Indian hip-hop.

Bilal Sheikh, better known as Emiway Bantai, is one of the most well-known names in the underground Hip-Hop Rap scene. Emiway Bantai, as he confessed in one of his videos, is a combination of “Eminem” and “Lil Wayne.” Emiway used to rap in English when he first started out, but after his father suggested that he try rapping in Hindi to reach more Indians, he produced his first Hindi rap, “Aur Bantai,” which became an instant hit. However, it was his original “Machayenge” that not only received a lot of attention from the audience, but also pushed him into the ranks of commercial “independent” artists, as he claims.
