With perseverance and heart, Naezy has become one of India’s most beloved hip-hop artists. His rise has mirrored the growth of South Asia’s hip-hop scene.
Here are 5 reasons we love Naezy.
1. Growing up in a low-income neighbourhood in Kurla, in Eastern Mumbai, his approach to music is humble and purposeful.
2. His poignant, socially-relevant lyrics exhort freedom. For Naezy, the path to freedom is defined by hard work, perseverance and hope.
3. He created and shot his first song on an iPad, released it online and quickly gathered millions of fans.
4. His genre-defining track “Azaad Hu Mai” was the first original track to ever be produced and released by a music streaming service.
