THOUGHTS on the Current state of HIP HOP music: 

 

Believes that American Hip hop is currently undergoing a massive transformation and getting increasingly infused with various elements of House and Electronic Music.Artists such as David Guetta and Tiesto are collaborating with several hip hop/ R&B acts and creating a whole different sub genre that combines club sounds with fundamental urban influences.Though he hasn't particularly taken a liking to this metamorphosis as his forte mainly lies in traditional R&B, Dancehall and groovy African sounds, he admits it works in getting the crowds moving on the floor.

 

OPINION on the status of HIP HOP in MUMBAI:

 

Considers the genre to have become bigger and better than ever before but thinks there is an increasing necessity for more promotion and feels there aren't too many night clubs in town taking the initiative.

 

Best party to date:  In Pune at The Loop (Friday Night, Booty Shaking Competition where the winners get 2 bottles of wine and you get to see about a 100 girls battle it out on the dance floor.)

 

Favorite Artist: A Tie Between NE-YO and THE DREAM
