Raftaar facts

  1. Just a few days before he was born, his parents returned to their hometown of Thiruvananthapuram for a couple of weeks to expel their son as a Kerala-born Malayali. Growing up in New Delhi, he came very close to the Punjabi way of life, falling in love with their way of life and their well-known generosity.
  2. He had a very modest upbringing as his family lived in a one-room apartment in a company in Munirka and had to share a toilet and kitchen with 6 other families.
  3. He was often selected in schools and had to change 6 schools because of incessant bullying. Because of his poor family background, he was also often discriminated against by his teachers.
  4. His life changed when he was in 9th grade when his friend loaned him a music CD containing the songs of Eminem and Linkin Park.
  5. Hip-hop music made him a popular kid in high school and college. During this time he regularly took part in the festivals and was often a winner.
  6. At the beginning of his career he was a member of a hip hop group called Black Wall Street Desis. His group was heavily influenced by the African American rappers and they even copied the African American slang and way of speaking.
  7. Due to his exceptional rap skills, his natural dancing skills are rarely noticed. In fact, early in his career he made extra pocket money with his dance performances.
  8. In 2011 he teamed up with his colleague from a Delhi-based dance institute called Max and Manik to participate in the dance reality show, Dance india dance. They made it to eighth place on the dance show and Raftaar also got a chance to demonstrate his hip hop skills on the show.
  9. His abilities were noticed by Yo Yo Honey Singh who gave Black Wall Street Desis a phone call and finally rope Raftaar in for the formation of Mafia Mundeerwho have favourited another superstar rapper Badshah among his members. However, Raftaar finally decided to leave Mafia Mundeer along with Badshah. Both accused Honey Singh of using their lines for his professional advantage and never giving them the credit they deserved. Since then, Raftaar has openly argued with Honey Singh, targeting him with the lyrics of some of his raps.
