In conversation with Sultaan

Sultaan aka Shashank Sharma is reigning the stage with his powerful rap, coupled with his bomb crew, XXL Gang. We recently reached out to him, and he told us all about his music, his favourite genres and his dreams.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m from Delhi,Nangloi. I’m 23 years old. I’m running a record label Named Artzilla Records. And also I formed a Crew named it XXL GANG this year – XXL GANG we have KHURAFAAT, FRESHLEE, CRUZE, DAVID and me. I started writing rap and poetry when I was in class 11.

How did you come to embrace this genre of music, and what was your first performance about?

I didn’t know at that time about what a genre is. I was an avid listener when I was class 10. I started listening to Bohemia, Raftaar, and Honey Singh from the music played on TV. I used to memorise and sing them when I was alone. Soon after, in an interview of Bohemia, I heard him say that RAP is Rhythm and Poetry … I had the poetry since I had started writing then. I just needed the rhythm. I wanted to try it out. And so, my first performance was all about my story – I wanted to let my audience know about myself.

Who are your current favourite artists?

Only 1 but m Naam n bta skta kyoki m nhe chata use koi or sune! I’m insecure uske liye!  I know this answer is weird but this is me and I’m weird.

where do you wish to reach as an artist? 

jaise log mere sath judte hai mere gaane sunn k kyoki vo relate krte h mere gaano se, so as an artist I want to reach and meet all those people kyoki aise bht h jo meri tarah honge but na toh main un tak pohoch paya hu or na vo mujh tak. Meri kosish yahi h us aakhri Insaan tak mera Gaana pohoche jo meri tarah hai tabhi m maanunga meri family complete hui! Or yahi mera dream hai as an artist! (And ofcourse paisa toh chaapna hi hai for better living better lifestyle! But money meri jarurt hai or yeh mera Sapna!)

Well, we really appreciate his music, and his honesty about his dreams. Check out the YouTube links here for the artist’s own favourite tracks.
