Srushti Tawade Journeys From Poetess to Raging ‘Desi’ Rapper
NEW DELHI, (IANS) – She is just 23 and has already created a storm with her unfiltered lyrics in songs such as ‘Chill Kinda Guy’ and ‘Main Nahi Toh Koun.’ Rapper Srushti Tawade, who has a master’s degree in English, started off as a poetess and has metamorphosed into a raging rapper with her tracks.
“Being from Mumbai I have loved rap and pop culture since childhood. I like to spread my work through social media and so I use Instagram to expand myself with my unfiltered lyrics,” she said.
“On the other hand, I am a writer whose content is renowned for being caustic and unafraid,” she added.
She has also written a lot of musical parodies. “I had things to say, and I knew how to say them in songs so I did that,” said the Internet sensation, who is currently seen on ‘MTV Hustle 2.0’.
She added: “Despite having participated in and won most of the poetry competitions prior to the lockdown, I only started rapping after that. I always believed that expressing your emotions through creating poetry and stories helps you unwind.”
Srushti made a name with her rap ‘Chill Kinda Guy’. The song is based on God and religious fanatics. Then there is ‘Main Nahi Toh Kaun?’ “It is like a dream come true after performing Main Nahi Toh Kaun rap in five different languages English, Hindi, Haryanvi, Marathi, and Bengali,” she said.
Srushti stole everyone’s heart when she spoke about domestic violence she faced in her childhood with ‘Bachpan’. From fun to an intense number, what was she thinking?
“I felt like I started to look like a funny rapper on the show, but I have other sides to me. I had not spoken about myself at that point. So, I decided to do it with ‘Bachapan’.”
