Rap culture in India is bigger than what people think: Yung Raja

MUMBAI: 25-year-old Singaporean hip hop artiste Yung Raja expressed the biggest challenge he faced during the lockdown period.

“Finding the spark to stay inspired or creative was a real struggle. But I have come to learn new ways to keep up. Taking things one day at a time is vital. I have learnt how to become more independent. How to be quieter and introspective my day to day activities,” revealed Yung.

In a further chat, we also asked Yung what he thinks of the Rap culture in India to which he added, “Bigger what people think it is, it’s next level. Unimaginable levels of artistry. I have had the privilege to meet some unique individuals there and I have been blown away by the talent... people are not ready!

Raja is now associated with the marquee music label Def Jam, which is known for its association with musicians like Jay-Z, Rihanna, Ludacris and Kanye West. Raja, too, is looking forward to pull clear of other emerging hip hop talents from Southeast Asian countries like Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam etc.

Yung has many projects in the pipeline.

“Once the travel ban is lifted, you can definitely expect to see me in India! Hopefully big concerts happen and if they do, I’ll see ya there,” added Yung.

His recently released track The Dance Song’ is gaining popularity worldwide receiving good number of views on YouTube. “We wanted to put a smile on your face. The Dance Song is a project we enjoyed so much creating and we wanted to share that fun with the world,” he added.

Lastly, he did wrap up the interview with a message to the audience.

“I’d have never imagined my life to look like this. I have had so many moments that will last a lifetime. Thanks for your love and support. I am able to do what I love daily, with people I love. Thank you to one and all. More music’s on the way! I love you,” expressed a heartfelt Yung.
