Hip hop in Bangladesh is still relatively young, and is growing faster than ever. Local listeners are starting to warm up to it. It has recently made its way into the local mainstream culture, with the collaborations of young rappers with iconic singers.
Now the local rappers are taking initiative to do something bigger. On November 25 they will launch the biggest hip hop album in the country’s history, titled Deshi Hip Hop Volume 1, in which one hundred rappers will collaborate. It will also feature artists from China, USA, India, France, Nigeria, and Zambia.
The album will have a special CD release on December 25 in Bangladesh. Currently the artists involved are using the slogan “Unity through Hip Hop” to promote the project all over the country. Murtaza Mahmood Upal, who uses the stage name Lucifer, will sponsor the project.
GP MUSIC, ROBI YOUNDER, Surjorajjo, and Gaan will work with them as local digital partners. The album will also be available on i-Tunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify and Saavn.
