Bappi Lahiri: Honey Singh is my favorite rapper
By Bryan Durham - June 28, 2018
One of the things we learned while speaking to the veteran composer
The real question we asked Bappi da (as Bappi Lahiri is fondly called) was: Name three Bollywood rappers you find most interesting. The man answered, but had only one name on his lips: Yo Yo Honey Singh.
The real reason we asked the question was because he has two international collaborations coming up — one is with Snoop Dogg and the other is with Akon.
The ‘golden man’ of India, Bappi Lahiri also happens to be an artist who moves with and adapts to the times. No wonder then, the music he has made and the songs that he has created, will transcend generations.
So much so, he is sought out and is constantly touring while still finding time to create and release independent singles, like the recently released World Peace Love Harmony (more on that soon).
Bappi da’s unique style and his trademark bling has long preceded the flamboyant style most rappers flaunt today. There’s only one Bappi da, but as far as he’s concerned, there’s only one rapper who is his favorite. And that’s Yo Yo Honey Singh.>
