Badshah. The great king of Bollywood.
Badshah stands at the forefront of Indian rap, having found huge success in his own brand of Hip Hop as well as having broken into Bollywood.
His artist name derives from a character from a Bollywood film, of which he is a massive fan. He was born and raised in Delhi but moved to Chandigarh when he was 17, where he was exposed to new Punjabi music, which gave him the inspiration to take up rapping.
Being that his name translates to ‘Great King’, it is of no surprise that he is a fan of the finer things in life, his greatest vice being luxury cars. ‘Party Anthem’ maker, Badshah is the only Indian Artist with over 10 songs having over 100 million views on YouTube.
Badshah has collaborated with Tuborg Open adding his special Punjabi flavour and his signature style to Major Lazer beat.
You can listen to his music on iTunes or Spotify.
