Explaining how the record came about Simar says, “the collaboration was very organic.” He continues by saying, “thereafter we made a couple of options for Soulja and he instantly thought it was dope and we finished the track in 18 minutes! In fact we produced the track on our laptop sitting out of a bedroom apartment in Bombay last February.”
CEO Miami Mike, Soulja Boy’s manager further elaborates, “I think that this song with Soulja Boy & Almost Famous is super dope. The Culture will deﬁnitely embrace him with this song. And Almost, really did their thing on this song. I really love this song.”
Giving a brief insight into the long-term vision Rishab Sadarangani excitedly states, “We want to take India to the world. We have been working along Hollywood artists since a year, and we realized we were making the same kind of music that our international peers were creating. This is when we started incorporating instruments to create a unique blend of Indian instruments such as sounds of the shehnai, flute, tumbi, sitar and tabla. Our music is about blending the two cultures effortlessly so that the hip hop becomes a big happy global family and there is no divide. We are happy to see how well the hip hop scene in India has evolved and with films like Gully Boy it’s interesting to see how musicians with humble backgrounds like us finally are living their dream.
Almost Famous comprises of Mumbai bred, Rishab and Simar and has been active on the music scene for several years having performed at major festivals.
Soulja Boy has been known as an original pioneer of utilizing the internet to break as an artist and have success.
