Hip hop was first introduced in India by Baba Sehgal, a Punjabi rapper in 1990. With the hand of his hit songs “Thanda Thanda Paani” and “Dil Dhadke” the trend was started. But in the early 2000s Bohemia, a Pakistani American rapper provided the Indian Hip-Hop with the spark and released “Vich Pardesan De”.
Getting the influence from Bohemia a group of five people Lil Golu, Ikka, Badshah, Yo Yo Honey Singh, and Raftaar came hitting into the Punjabi rap genre. They produced so many hit songs. But within some days the group was parted and members started their work as individuals.
Finally, the real competition was started between Yo Yo Honey Singh and Badshah when Honey Singh released his album “Desi Kalakaar” in August 2014.
