Who are rappers? Lil Wayne, Eminem, Snoop Dogg… these are the names we hear most of the time when we speak about rappers. But what we fail to remember each time when we stand up to praise these artists is that our country has never been and will never be less endowed than the other countries in this round world. There are so many rappers in our country itself whose songs are equally rocking. So here is a list of my most hunted Indian rappers…
