Hip Hop is not just music but a culture that runs on brotherhood and a strong bond of love. The art of storytelling on beats has hypnotized millions worldwide irrespective of their age, culture, race and country. It can be truly remarked as a music genre that has authentic international appeal. Bohemia is credited for starting the desi Hip Hop wave in India and other Hindi/Urdu speaking communities around the globe. He is formally regarded as the pioneer who built the foundation for others to follow.
His image of a gangsta rapper, baritone voice and hard hitting lyrics made people fall for him immediately. He was followed by popular rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh who truly pushed rapping in the commercial scene and is still the highest paid singer of Indian film industry.
