Yashraj is a 22-year-old rapper, writer, and poet from Mumbai. As one of the fastest-rising rappers in the game with multiple sold-out shows in just 2 years of his career, he has mastered and proved his skills with his impeccable flow and poetic writing. His real, hard-hitting, and fact-stating lyrics, combined with his commitment towards his craft, have enabled him to constantly push the boundaries of the genre - via vocal tonality and novel productions.

His debut EP ‘Azaad Hu Mein’ was also prominently placed on major hip-hop playlists and supported by industry heavyweights like Bobby Friction on BBC Radio 1.

His willingness to not settle for or stick to one sound is evident from his distinctive flips and collaborations.
