It is no surprise that Desi Hip-Hop has reached places which at one point could not have been thought of. There is absolutely no ambiguity that a lot of it has to do with the flourishing of technology and social media. Due to the growth of social media in the past two years, I got to check out plenty of music from the North-East region. Something I had only heard of through word of mouth before. Now I cannot wait to go and check out the burgeoning scene over there!
One of such personalities who shaped the hip hop scene in NE is DJ Knack who hails from the Meghalaya, Shillong. He's one of the most prominent figures from the North East Hip-Hop community. Knack has been grinding hard for quite some time as he aims to make sure that India gets to listen to pure and unadulterated Hip-Hop music. He is affiliated with numerous acts from the North East, one of them being the Khasi Bloodz. DJ Knack is currently based in Delhi and we've had quite a few conversations in which we contrasted the music scene prevalent in Delhi and the North-East. Speaking from experience, he had some interesting observations.
