Music has always been a powerful source of spreading messages and instilling emotions in listeners. Hindi hip hop artists have certainly proved it so by rapping on various social issues to create awareness and promote actions against injustice. Take a look at our top 10 picks of stirring Hindi rap songs on current social issues.
1. Mantoiyat by Raftaar
Up until this track, Raftaar had both mainstream and underground works to his credit. This was the song where he rapped about all that he truly wanted to and brought underground into the frontier of the mainstream. He said it all in this one track – from the society being a complete failure and corruption hiding behind every corner to widespread injustice and the lack of people’s willingness to protest.
2. Vaishnava Jana To by Brodha V
Arguably the best song by Brodha V, this socio-political track with a bhajan as chorus, talks about the inequalities that prevail in the country and the biases of mainstream media while urging people to step beyond racial discrimination and unite as one.
3. Kaisa Mera Desh by KR$NA
KR$NA paved the way for songs on social issues with this track 10 years ago (when he was going by the name Prozpekt). This anti-corruption track went viral as KR$NA talked about how poverty has been stimulated and ignored by the officials.
4. #NORAPE by EMIWAY
Released at the time of the Asifa rape case, Emiway uses his art form to rap about how unsafe women are in this country as they step out of their homes and how such inhumane actions are terrifying them to exercise their freedom.
5. Naari by Iqlipse Nova
This rap song about women’s rights and the harassment they face every day in this country will send chills down your spine and make you stop and reflect on these issues.
6. Mandir Wahin Banega by Dheeru Khola
Sarcasm is a strong weapon in the hands of influencers and Dheeru Khola has powerfully fired it to drop truth bombs about the harsh reality of society – from the empty words of politicians to the illegal activities they indulge in.
7. Kattarwaad by Rap ID
Based on the religious conflicts that were catapulted by the government’s decision regarding CAA and NRC, this rap is a complete masterpiece that opened listeners’ eyes to the ulterior motives of the officials.

9. Fod Dena by Fotty Seven

10. Ekla Cholo Re by EPR
While rappers turned to raise awareness about racial discrimination, women’s rights, corruption, etc., EPR shed light on the conditions that Indian farmers go through.
