Dhanraj Singh from Hyderabad has received a lot of appreciation for his recent rap song ‘Nai Sunte Hyderabadi’.
The ‘pakka Hyderabadi ‘language has always had its own cult following, not only in the city but everywhere in the country. But what if the dialect was used in rapping?
After films like Gully Boy, boys in the gallis of the country have found mediums to bring their art of rapping to the front. And the Hyderabadi gallis also throng with youth rapping about their daily lives or the girls they love.
One such talented rapper from the city is Dhanraj Singh who has received a lot of appreciation for his recent rap song ‘Nai Sunte Hyderabadi’.
The rap is about a guy trying to convince a girl he loves to love him back. Having shot at Konda Pochamma Sagar Reservoir which has become a prime destination for an outing among the city dwellers, the song sees Dhanraj rapping while walking behind a girl while trying to cajole her towards loving him.
With a piece of interesting background music, the lyrics uses some very famous Hyderabadi words like ‘baigan ke baatan’, ‘nakko’, ‘bawa’ (for dad), and so on.
“…Dil aaya tumpe
Kahan rehte bolo khali
Deo laga leke
Dio bhaga letewe
Abhi aaraon dekho
Khali Baigan ke baatana hai
Baigana ke nakko karo
Khali pyaar karo khula
Kiske bawa se bhi nakko daro…”
In a span of two months, the video has reached nearly 40 lakh views. Along with Dhanraj, the rap song is a team effort of Hyderabad galli ke ladke – Kayden, Abeer Rohit and Abu Zubeir.
