With Sankranti right around the corner, Tollywood’s Telugu rapper Rahul aka Roll Rida has joined hands with upcoming music director Syed Kamran for his latest song titled Patang. The video has gone viral and has over 90,000 views in just under three days.
Rahul, who wrote the lyrics for this Telugu rap song says, “There is a misconception among many that its only possible to rap in Hindi or Tamil. I wanted to show them all that it’s possible to rap in Telugu as well.” Rahul wrote this with Sankranti on his mind and has included the colloquial dialect to bring in a Hyderabadi feel to it.
Although they did not expect a reaction of this magnitude, Syed Kamran says that they are pleased.
He says, “We always believed that its important to showcase the culture of Hyderabad and that’s what we have managed to achieve.”
