She is just 23 years old and has already created a storm with her unfiltered lyrics in songs like ‘Chill Kinda Gaye’ and ‘Main Nahi Toh Kaun’ – rapper Srishti Tawde, who holds a master’s degree in English, has created a storm. Started off as a poetess and transformed into a fiery rapper with her tracks.
Born in Mumbai, the artist did her schooling from National English High School and her college from SNDT Women’s College. His love for rap and pop culture is what helped him reach where he is today.
“Being from Mumbai, I love rap and pop culture since childhood. I love to spread my work through social media and that’s why I use Instagram to expand myself with my unfiltered lyrics. I am recognized as a writer, poet, rapper, satirist,” said Srishti Tawde.
“On the other hand, I am a writer whose material is renowned for being caustic and unapologetic,” she said.
He has also written several musical parodies.
“I had things to say and I knew how to say them in a song, so I did it,” said the internet sensation, who is seen in ‘MTV Hustle 2.0’.
Highlighting his journey, the rapper said: “During the Covid pandemic, I discovered a new gift for myself and started associating poetry with some rhythm and pulse. After investing a lot of time and energy in this field, and continued hard work, he laid the foundation for MTV Hustle Season 2, India’s first Rap/Hip-Hop reality show.”
She said: “Despite participating and winning most poetry competitions before the lockdown, I started rapping only after that. I have always believed that expressing your feelings by creating poems and stories helps you to de-stress.”
Srishti made a name for herself with her rap ‘Chill Kinda Guy’. The song is based on God and religious fanatics. However, it is the catchy lyrics and the hip-swaying music that has caught the attention of many.
In “Chill Kinda Guy”, a call from God is depicted. Packed by fanatics (anti-fans?), God wants to clarify the facts so that he can’t even do bhakti for “appearance/from temples”. Go to your home (they leave the house of bhakti / head from temples, mosques).
Then there is ‘if not me then who?’
“After rapping in five different languages English, Hindi, Haryanvi, Marathi and Bengali, it is like a dream come true if not me. I make fun of myself and even ridicule the contestants, but explain that it was actually a shout-out, ‘Ek minute, hit kiya hi nahi. Main khilaiya diya, this kiya hi nahi (One minute, it didn’t even hit. I gave shootout, didn’t even decide). ,
Srishti Tawde stole everyone’s heart when she talked about her childhood facing domestic violence with ‘childhood’.
From fun to intense numbers, what was she thinking?
“I felt like I started looking like a funny rapper on the show, but I have other sides. I didn’t talk about myself at the time. So I decided to do it with ‘Bachpan’.”
