Hip Hop 2011 and the Big Dogs

February 3, 2012

By Ch Nabeel Ahmed

There’s no doubt that only thing that dominated 2011 in Pakistani music scene other than Coke Studio was Pakistani Hip Hop. The slow pace of other genres and consistent discontent from formula hip tracks created a vacuum which was filled by the much needed Hip Hop/Rap videos that came one after the other. The major boost came in May when ‘Conflict Management’ by Rap Engineers, ‘Off the Handle’ by Adil Omar featuring Xzibit and ‘Too Much Pride’ by Lazarus dropped in the same week back to back. Not only the videos went viral on timelines but also took over the TV channels, where ‘Conflict Management’ still stands in Top 5 music videos of AAG and ARY Musik.

The storm didn’t stop there when Osama Com Laude dropped his ‘The Balance’ with Talal Qureshi and Fortitude bringing the Pushto Rap ‘Time Pass’ to the front that officially made its mark with Project BX’s Dewaar in 2010.
