Cult rapper-producer MC Stan releases debut album, 'Tadipaar'

MUMBAI: Indian hip-hop’s best kept secret rapper and producer MC STAN on Tuesday self-released his debut album, Tadipaar – days after he released the final track from his six-part audio-visual project of the same name.

The debut compilation consists of the six tracks released so far alongside two new tunes, ‘Out Soon (Interlude)’ and ‘MC STAN Type Beat (Outro)’, an idiosyncratic cocktail of samples and beats which happens to be the longest track on the album, coming in at nearly 11 minutes. MC STAN is one of the few dual-discipline hip-hop artists in India, and all songs on the album have been written, produced, and arranged by MC STAN.

Tadipaar is the story of MC STAN’s life in Pune and captures his experiences with the police, fame and infamy and what led to his ‘exile’ from Pune to Mumbai – the final act of tadipaar[1].

MC STAN’s unrestrained, sharp writing and versatility as a beatmaker makes him one of Indian hip-hop’s most exciting talents, 2020 saw the rapper-producer reaffirm that reputation with regular releases through the year. Over the last 18 months, MC STAN has gained more than 750,000 subscribers on YouTube for his stylised videos and raw, straight-talking verses. All videos released in 2020 have racked up views in the millions.

“This album was long overdue, to the extent that the time it has taken to drop especially - due to the pandemic - has been frustrating,” says the Pune-born, Mumbai-based artist adding, “I’m glad that it’s finally out now, as there are a lot of other projects that were on hold that I will finally be able to put out to the audience.”

Tadipaar serves as a showcase for MC STAN’s versatility as a rapper and producer, that isn’t tethered to genre classifications or trends. The inherently personal album showcases MC STAN’s dexterity with languages (Marathi, Hindi and English), and his ability to mould words to his cause.

“I know most people don't have time to listen to stories about someone's life, but for those who are, this project and this song is for them,” says MC STAN dedicating Tadipaar to his fans who have spread his music far and wide.

MC Stan is managed by NOFILTR.Group, India’s first influencer incubator. The company looks after MC Stan’s music production, conceptualisation of videos and manages his music career.

Tadipaar is an independent release in collaboration with Paris-based independent digital music distribution and artist services company Believe, who have extended its’ digital music distribution service arm to MC STAN, counted among Indian hip-hop’s most exciting talents.
