Rap, being one of the most popular genres today, especially among the youngsters is attracting artists and fans from all walks of life and are slowly becoming a part of this cultural fabric, not only in global terms but in our Nepalese context as well. Even after more than a decade and half of its introduction by pioneers such as Girish, Pranil, The Unity , Nirnaya, etc., rap has yet to fully crossover into the mainstream, but the arrival of young, rising hip hop talents such as VTEN, Laure, Sacar, Chirag, Uniq Poet, Mc Flo and many more, intially led by the late post-era rap legend Yama Buddha (Anil Adhikari) in their project of paving the road of Nepali Hip Hop- NepHop ( Nephop ko Bato), has sparked a musical revolution, challenging and rewriting the rules and borders of hip hop.
