True love is always subversive.
Rahat is a Bengali Hip Hop artist from The Bronx New York.
He has been rapping for fun since Middle School as a way to impress his girlfriends, but it quickly evolved into a way of life once he saw how effective it was as both a form of stress relief and a way to tell the stories of his life and situations growing up in The Bronx.
My rating: 7.5/10

Here’s my Q/A with the artist himself:
Briefly introduce yourself, and your band if you play with one.
My name is Rahat and I am a Hip Hop artist. I’ve been rapping and producing for about five years now but recently I’ve taken to just sticking to my rap roots. I’ve been treating this as a hobby for the past couple years but now I’m starting to take it much seriously than before and music has basically started to become a very huge part of my life.
