Rise of Badshah
Written by Sudipto Das on August 8, 2019
We have all grown up listening to “ft.” videos, wondering what exactly it stands for, only to be introduced to a whole new world of Rap. Be it Eminem, Pitbull or 50 Cent, the big guns in the west, the world of Rap gave us a whole new playlist to fall in love with.
While there were many listening to these songs on repeat, there were few others trying to rap themselves and get the speed and lyrics right. One such soul among these was Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia. Born to a Punjabi middle-class family, Aditya, although academically adept, had a deep love of Rap. After this, as in any Bollywood classic, came the tragic turn of clashes between a father’s expectations of his son and the son’s own dream. Multiple rounds of persuasion later, he finally got his family to make peace with the fact that he was going to be a Rap Star.
His journey since then has been no short of a series of drama with several ups and downs. Starting off with a mentor like Honey Singh, the newbie thought this would give him a start good enough to reach the level of accolade he always dreamt of. In this journey of his, was one more under the wrap Rapper, whom we know today as Raftaar. After jamming together as “Mafia Mundeer” back in 2006, both the rappers decided to go their own ways and make their mark.
Badshah’s first independent song “Kar Gayi Chull”, which was later adopted in the Bollywood movie “Kapoor and Sons” did to him what he always hoped for. Few more hits later, “Saturday Saturday”, “Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai”, “Kaala Chashma”, to name a few, his career took off to another level.
His first debut single “DJ Waley Babu”, released in 2015, made his place on the chart lists and there has been no looking for Badshah since then. Check out these hits if you haven’t to get a feel of what er are talking about:
And now, after a series of hits, has come another benchmark, not only in Badshah’s career but in the career of all artists. His recent song “Paagal” broke all records by receiving 75 Million views in just one day, leaving behind global superstars like “BTS” and “Taylor Swift”.
Not only this, the star can now be called a “movie star” too with his debut in Bollywood film called “Khadaani Shafakhana” beside Sonakshi Sinha and Varun Sharma.
All we can say is Badshah has stood true to his name by living a journey and setting an example to inspire many. Fever FM cannot wait to watch what Badhshah comes up next with…
