MC Todfod aka Dharmesh Parmar: #HipHopHomeland

Dharmesh is India's first Gujarati rapper, coming straight from the streets of South Mumbai's BDD Chawl. Tod Fod believes Hip Hop is knowledge and movement. Heavily influenced by Rajeev Dixit and his swadesi movement, he believes that while the British might have left India, we are still in awe of them. We still are a little too heavily influenced by them. He isn't a stranger to controversy and his single 'Cows' about the Beef Ban - where he supports the ban - is testament to it. Still only in his early 20s, he has been featured by The Bandish Projekt in two of their albums.
