Tragedy Mein Comedy - Naezy - Live At Hip Hop Homeland

The conscious-rap star performs the AIB theme song LIVE!

Bringing his special brand of conscious rap from the streets to the stage, Mumbai's hip hop star Naezy brought the verse from the streets to the stage at #HipHopHomeland LIVE at antiSOCIAL, Khar on 27th April. Here he is performing the hit track which is the theme song for On Air With AIB - Tragedy Mein Comedy.

They've been performing their take on desi hip hop in the gullies and bylanes of Mumbai for years. They've built a hardcore fan following in the chawls, rapping about the things that affect their lives. On 27th April, 2016, they finally made it to the stage. And they blew it up. Performing to a packed audience at antiSOCIAL, Khar in Mumbai, desi hip hop stars Divine, Naezy, MC Todfod, MC Mawali, Prabh Deep and Mumbai's Finest dropped the mic on the biggest underground musical movement brewing in the city. Performances out soon on 

Naezy aka Naved Shaikh is one of the best Indian hip-hop to come up in recent times. The MC - who rhymes in Hindi and Marathi - was brought up in the chawls of Kurla, a suburb in Mumbai. Hailing from an orthodox Muslim family, Naezy employs razor-sharp wit to address socio-cultural problems and uses hip-hop to bring attention to the state of affairs in his part of the world - one that is often ignored by traditional media. He's also written the title tracks for All India Backhod's critically acclaimed show 'On Air With AIB' and the ICC T20 World Cup.
