The rise of hip-hop in India has coincided with the emergence and rise of DIVINE, considered as one of the most popular rappers and hip-hop artists in India. With awards and accolades to his name, DIVINE’s fiery, anger-spitting verses have struck a chord with everyone from Dharavi to Darjeeling. Central to rise of the ‘gully rap’ movement, with hit sin-gles like ‘Meri Gully Mein’, ‘Jungli Sher’ and ‘Kaam 25’, DIVINE’s brutally honest Hindi rap draws inspiration from his own life and the streets of Mumbai, set to beats that wouldn’t be out of place in a Los Angeles studio. The year 2016, which proved to be DIVINE’s breakthrough year, started off on a bang as he released ‘Jungli Sher’, an autobiographical song. His collab with Nucleya on Jungle Raja won laurels and an award at GIMA. Soon after, DIVINE reached new fans and new heights when he became the first Indian artist to be fea-tured on BBC 1 Xtra’s ‘FIRE IN THE BOOTH’ in 2016.

His 2017 single, ‘Farak’ topped the Indipop charts on iTunes India, and was also featured on the radio show, Beats1 & played out in over 100 countries. Bollywood came calling soon after and DIVINE made his Bol-lywood debut with ‘Paintra’ in Anurag Kashyap’s Mukkebaaz (2017), collaborating with good friend Nucleya.An electric live performer, DIVINE’s shows are as entertaining as they are inspiring for his young fans. His live set-up now features charismatic musicians like drummer Jai Row Kavi, guitarist Randolph Correia and bassist Krishna Zaveri making it no less than a supergroup of talent and starpower.
