Raafat Ullah, Creative Director at Desi Hip Hop, said: "We've been building this platform for over a decade to nurture and showcase South Asian hip hop talent and promote unity amongst our people around the world." 

Hardik Dave, CEO of Desi Hip Hop Inc, added: "It's rewarding to see this movement grow and make the impact that we've always envisioned; and as Desi Hip Hop turns the corner from a culture to a category, we are excited to be working alongside a partner like Sony Music India who believes in this vision." 

Arjun Sankalia, Head International Repertoire and Special Projects at Sony Music India, said: "Hip hop has always been close to our hearts -- more so since we began working the genre in 2015 with ‘Mere gully mein'. 

"We're 100 per cent committed to hip hop and are glad to have found a like-minded partner in DHH who have been flying the flag for South Asian hip hop for over a decade."
