STAN THE RAPPER SHINES WHERE OTHERS FAIL

He has been lampooned, insulted and dismissed by many, but love him or loathe him, Stan The Rapper is currently the one of the most famous faces in Indian rap.

The Delhi based artist has taken the internet world by storm with his short freestyle videos going viral. The rapper is not outstanding as far as flow goes, but he has one of the best online marketing strategies ever seen in the local game. And we cannot deny the fact that his stories are equally responsible for his online success. With figures that would make even established musicians go green with envy, he tackles everyday situations in his raps and even jests himself in the process. But one thing you must credit him for, he is not a faker in the sense of talking about bling he’s never touched and cars he has never ridden. He keeps it real and only talks about things the guy hanging out of the local train can relate to. Some might quip that he is making a fool of himself that’s why he’s getting the numbers. I’m not sure that’s entirely accurate, he may be humorous alright, but so are many established musicians, Al Yakovich is a good example. And his series of freestyles which are of very good quality with surprisingly clear audio have now received over 100,000 hits, that’s even more than many internationally known rappers ever get.

So rather than waste time hating on a success story, how about artists analyze his game and learn a few things from him, for example, you don’t have to use imaginary American situations in order to get attention in local hip hop. It’s also noteworthy that his sometimes difficult to understand English has not deterred viewers from clicking his videos again and again. So don’t let anybody tell you that you should not rhyme in English if you want to succeed, Stan just burst that mythical bubble.

And do remember, getting Youtube hits is just part 1, next, you gotta bring the audiences into your shows, and that’s a little tougher, even Stan is yet to accomplish that part.

If you have a different take on it, you’re welcome to state it in the comments section below, in the meantime, you can watch Stan The Rapper’s “My Love Story” freestyle below.
