The notoriously loud-mouthed bad boy - rapping in Hindi, Haryanvi and Punjabi - has been flying solo for nearly a decade following his departure from the Mafia Mundeer group. He's probably the country's biggest rapper, and has soundtracked multiple Bollywood films, dominated the charts, teamed up with the likes of A. R. Rahman, Aastha Gill and Major Lazer, and scooped multiple awards. Celebrate his mad skills by exploring his back catalog in the app and trying to learn his complex rhymes by heart.
