MTV’s Hustle aims to aspiring Indian rappers

MTV Launches New Rap Reality Show,The progress of rape in India is comparable to its development in the United States – its birthplace. The genre began in ny within the early 70s when MCs at block parties interacted with the gang between songs to stay spirits from the flag. 
Gradually, their words rhymed and was in sync with the music. Despite gaining popularity, rap was, for nearly 10 years, dismissed as a craze that would soon fade away. 

In India too, rap remained on mainstream musical tunes. Today, however, it has a special reality show, Hustle, on MTV. The show will track 15 contestants, filtered from over a 1,000, vying for the title.

It will have three accomplished rappers from the country —

“I feel like this show was made for me,” says Raftaar, “I think it has a lot to do with the format. For the contestants, it is not about the marks they get. They need to return up with original content and that they get votes if the audience like their work.” 
Raftaar, before becoming a well-liked rapper, was a contestant in several dance reality shows. “My first love has always been rap. I liked dance, too. When I started, the rap scene was just up, so I chose the dance route. Today, there is a special stage for rap, ”he says. 
He believes that Hustle will help aspiring rappers start their careers. “It is not about winning the title here. You won’t become a superstar overnight. Of course, you will be in the limelight if you win, but what matters is what you do with that exposure. 
This will be just the beginning. “The lyrics were in English and it was very niche. Now, it has reached more youngsters, thanks to social media and high-speed Internet. Language is no more a barrier now. And, rap is no longer just a party element; people channel it as an honest attempt to speak about their lives.” 
Unlike most music-based Indian reality shows, Hustle requires its participants to return up with original work.
