Groove To Homegrown Hip Hop With Divine, MC Altaf And Gully Gang

The Indian hip hop movement that came to be known as gully rap began in the slums of Mumbai from a similar feeling of disenfranchisement that sparked New York hip hop in the ’70s. Gully rap doesn’t shy away from topics like poverty, illiteracy and police brutality. The burgeoning subculture entered the Indian cultural mainstream in a big way because of artists like Divine (pictured), Naezy, Emiway Bantai, among others. The popularity of the genre even spawned a big-budget Bollywood film Gully Boy (2019).

The Big Ticket is a concert that brings the biggest names in gully rap to Bangalore on Saturday, April 3.

The line-up for the show consists of Divine, Gully Gang and MC Altaf. Check out some of their songs before the gig.
