Hailed as one of the founding members of Indian hip hop, Badshah has not just been a principal
stakeholder in the hip hop revolution emerging out of South Asia but is also responsible for
bringing mainstream stature to Indian hip hop through his contributory work in Indian cinema.
With a wide ranging discography spanning across a decade, the 38-year-old music juggernaut is
the only Indian artist to have successfully delivered over 18 radio hits with over 300 million
views and broken into the Billboard Global 200 Charts.
A tastemaker when it comes to all things pop culture, Badshah is an avid enthusiast for propelling cross-cultural narratives, having collaborated with artists of the likes of J Balvin, Sean Paul, Major Lazer, Diplo Tiesto, Lil Baby amongst others. A top tier music titan in his own right, Badshah is referred to as the king of Indian hip hop and one of India's richest rappers having cemented his spot as a legacy artist, and with a legion of South Asian fans to his credit. Aside from music, he is also invested in a diverse set of business start-ups and charitable causes.
