The latest signing from India to join the Anara Publishing roster is Rahul Khadtare a.k.a KIDSHOT. He is known for his chopper flow ability (a fast-paced rap style), performance energy and motivational lyrical approach, putting him firmly on the map as one of India’s most exciting up and coming artists.
Deepa Seshadri, Head of Partnerships in Asia said of the signing:
“The hip hop scene has been taking off in a huge way in India so we were looking for someone in this space with an interesting spark. Kidshot is that artist. He’s extremely talented and passionate about his music and we’re stoked to be working with him!”
Rahul dropped his first single at age 15 which was a remixed version of Lil’ Wayne’s – Misunderstood. This got him a lot of traction and he became a household name as well as his abilities being recognized and praised by the India Book of Records for rapping 350+ words under a minute. While this achievement roped in a lot of fans, Rahul’s main aim was never to achieve the title, and he still believes in making good music.
With a high learning curve and an insight for storytelling through lyrics, Kidshot is now set to make a difference in the Hip-hop circuit. He has an upcoming brand called “The Chosen One” which will be selling merchandise and aiming to give young musicians and talented individuals a chance to perform and to have a backing in production through his brand. He wants to give back to the community by bringing more opportunities for all.
