  • The fame hasn’t changed why he does what he does and Iyer – who refers to himself as a ‘reporter from the streets’ – continues to speak on current affairs and socio-political topics through rap.
  • He admits that being a Kolkatan has a lot to do with his attitude. “I don’t think I would have been so political if I had grown up somewhere else.
  • When you grow up in Kolkata, you are exposed to political debates right from the start, be it in a cha shop or a college hangout.
  • The city makes you realize that you cannot stay outside the system for systemic change.”
  • Despite the pressure, he prefers a journalistic approach to hip hop, maintaining neutrality by critiquing where the group falters.
  • His first solo album, Protest Poetry, released in 2020 during the pandemic, is a blend of these ideals. Featuring 17 tracks with two million streams on Spotify alone, Iyer feels it is a testament to a change in taste.
  • He says, “The album is packed with heavy material that listeners wouldn’t normally hear, and includes stories about the Assam Regiment, Lakshmi Agarwal and the 2019 elections.”
  • With a continued desire to move forward, Iyer is well into the making of his second album, Reggae Hindustani, which includes 16 singles, eight of which have already been released. “I was a lot more conservative and objective on my first album.
  • Except for two melodious songs, I didn’t even find myself in the stories told.
  • I have explored many genres in this album and there is more ‘me’ in it.
  • I also studied Urdu poetry for five months to write a song, ADR/ABR.
  • Even after listening to it, people were asking me if I am from Pakistan!” he says.
  • Iyer says the album is all about breaking stereotypes, highlighting how past regressive notions have made way for new ones. “Earlier, you had to wear oversized clothes and jewelry to be considered a true rapper.
