Ra da Punjabi Rapper

Posted by sepoy on August 05, 2004 · 1 min read

In my view, there is no other language more suited to the cadence of gangsta rap than Punjabi. Watch any movie by Sultan Rahi or Mustafa Qureshi and you will encounter the crew chillax in da hood wid a fly ba-donka-donk, rollin' in da benjamins and da bling-bling. Of course, some wanksta will start buggin' or diss da haps. Oh shizzle. Homie ain't gotz no choice but to busta cap in dat ass wid his k. Shit goes down but ya caynt go against a thug like Rahi. In the end, the homies fire up some shwag and get back to P.H.D.

Ok. I am done. Also, I apologize.

Out of Oakland, which gave us Too $hort (the classic Shorty the Pimp stayed in my car stereo far longer than polite society allows such things), comes Ra aka Raja aka Bohemia, the Punjabi Rapper. And I say, Why did this not happen sooner!? He raps in Punjabi (Ek adhay sootay nal menoo chrdhi nahi bhang), talks about blunts, hos, interfaith dialogue, pakistan-india cultural unity, faith, hot-roddin, pimpin, and some fly-ass hoochie-mama desi shorties.

Visit his website where you can read about his "journey through true stories of pride and prejudice, giving and greed, poverty and wealth, life, love and murder - desi style."

updated: [Jan 3, 2004] Bohemia writes in about what he will be doing in the next few months:
Bohemia chats live on air with dj Sanj on BBC Asian Network's popular, Adil Ray show.

This is just a note to add to your writeup of Bohemia the Punjabi rapper. I agree that it's about time we had a rapper (a GOOD rapper) to represent us. I live in Oakland, Ca. West Oakland to be exact, and it is crazy and violent out here. Someone gets killed every day. Even desi kids out here get into it-the street lifestyle. Most desis dont aknowledge the fact that there are many american ghettos full of us! we don't all go straight to med school ya know! I guess I feel what bohemia raps about cause it is what many young Desi people around me live. peace Reggie Kumar


munzt | August 19, 2004

reggie: of course, you are right. there are desi kids into gangsta life. if they can be in gangsta life back in homistan, why can't they do it here. and bohemia's rap rand true to my ears. be safe.


dani | October 05, 2004

ok i'm avoiding my work by browsing chapati and don't even know if this 2 month late response will post but i say.... what-EV-uh, son. i am at a computer with no speakers but at a glance i can tell from "bohemia"'s (what the fuck is that name about?? what does a kid cashing in on stale trends and reinforcing annoying stereotypes have to do with either a region in the czech republic or artists living frugally in cold water flats???? get your damn references straight before hitting the streets, boyeeee) website that it's more of the same bullshit. sepoy might like it for witty conceptual reasons and reggie might feel a twinge of exciting empowerment at finally belonging to the now mainstream buffoonery that passes for masculinity in the "'hood" and in the shopping malls...but i just got home from teaching an after-school program in brooklyn and if i see one more 11 year old grab the crotch of his stupid big pants while he shoots me his 'you can't touch this' look or 10 year old talk about the 'hos' he's gonna hook up with tonight I'M GONNA FRIGGIN' PUKE ALL OVER the dangerous STUPID travesty that is everything "gansta"!!!!!! it's a self-perpetuating fantasy and reggie you like it cause it makes you proud to see desis looking badass. that's ok but don't mistake it for reality please. reality is having the balls to be the best you can despite any circumstances, not luxuriating in indulgent bad-boy bullshit and calling it "representation". out.

Hey....wassup y'all... My name is PakMan, im an urdu/hiphop artist.I'v been in the game for about 3 years now....i'm underground but im almost comppleted with my album and very soon im launching my website, with my 1st single" soniye"(cutie)... chek it out.... and for "the punjabi rapper....U tight...u throw it down....i wont mind putting a song with you... halla when u come to cali.. Drop by my studio...we got great things comming up..... We come from the same hood"lahore" much more to talk about...hit me up...jigar. u got my email...yousaf466@hotmail.com email me if u want a copy of my song...


dani | December 10, 2004

yo deej ok, fairnuff, i can't speak in a fully informed way about bohemia if i haven't heard the lyrics. my bad. but, here's a little about the world i'm livin in: 1) as mc naveed, the real deal from lahore, says: somethin's definitely wrong if you feel the need to dis yo own grandma 2) the only hate i have is for the giant media corporations who make millions off low-income folks by controlling "what's hot" in such an insidious way that the same folks actually think they're being "represented". 3) most of the boyz - black, hispanic, desi, white - who walk around mouthing all the words to their favorite tunes and identify so strongly with songs about "the streets" actually HAVE NO IDEA about "the streets" - they ain't livin' in crackhouses, they have mamas and ammas at home flippin' tortillas and parathas... but the fantasy of bein' badass is so appealing that they flirt with life on "the streets" and end up shot or in jail, not for a cause, but for a damn 'guns and hos' fantasy, a fantasy of wanting to belong and be a big man. i've seen it first hand more times than i care to count. 4) speaking of causes: the worst thing about the commodification of hip hop and rap is that it hypnotizes the people - the oppressed and minorities - and they become zombies and buy all the shit they told to buy instead of makin a damn revolution, which is what SHOULD be happening in this divided country. 5) i actually am just about old enough to be yo grandma, which means i remember the early eighties, when rap came on the scene as a powerful, original verbal art form, when independent-minded young people used words skillfully and creatively and politically to outsmart the system, not to line its pockets. if bohemia can do that, then he got mad props from me. peace.


sepoy | December 10, 2004

OOOH. is this gonna be an old-skool EastSide WestSide brawl?! dani, you are absolutely right but RAP IN PUNJABI! Damn that floats my pomo, pocol boat.


raj | December 11, 2004

"Bohee-mee-ah make a tutti" hahaha just kidding, hes can flo


dani | December 11, 2004

oops....well....it coulda been a brawl....but it turned into a monologue, since my shout went out in the wrong direction...i meant to respond to 'YO BOY FROM CALI'.....damn, son, yall know how hard it is for grandma to keep up with this newfangled technology....;-)


CH | December 17, 2004

This is in response to Dani. First off, you seem like you are in denial of the fact that there are Desis who grow up in the hood. It's not just a bunch of people wearing baggy pants and grabbing their crotches. We (people in the ghettos) live in an environment that is so much realer and far less pretentious than your little suburban neighborhoods with picket fences and people watering the lawns. And you say you old enough to be a grandma?-no wonder you can't relate! Listen here Grandma: I live in the ghetto. Yes, the crack houses. Yes the killers. I live in East Oakland, California. My older brother was murdered, my older sister was murdered. My best friend aint even 18 and he's in Vacaville state pen with an L for a 187. Up here in Oakland we have hellicopters circling our blocks around the clock to spy on the dope spots. We shoot at the fuckin hellicopters when we bored. NOW I am not bragging, but maybe THATS why Bohemia raps about the shit he raps about. That is life for us here. Dont matter, Brooklyn or Oakland, old people like you can't relate if you ain't in our shoes to begin with. So go back to Abercrombie and Fisch after you get out of your little after school "mentoring", and check your self. Then tell me these kids really look up to your old ass -By the way, can you be my mentor? Yeah cuz I'm only 17...Trick.


sanjay | December 20, 2004

Bohemia is the s***! eff what you idiots have to say. Any time a desi does something out of the ordinary and breaks the mold, there is ALWAYS one of our one who hates him for it. You know who I'm refering to. Peace, Bigggups to my man Bohemia SANJAY "HANG MAN"


raj | December 22, 2004

CH, im not hating on bohemia, i think hes got skills, but admit, what bohemia raps about is something only a minority of desis can relate to. even rappers, when being honest, admit to embellishing...didnt jadakiss say something like "why do rappers lie in half of they rhymes" so in a way parts of 'gangsta rap' is fantasy and the line becomes blurred. what dani might be talking about is middle class kids imitating the ghetto life. ive done some research and it seems alot of desi gangs in the bay area are middle class, they dont live in crack infested, mainly black neighborhoods that the 'gangsta' lifestyle came from. its become a machismo/respect thing for some middle class desis/asians/latins/blacks. also, the way you phrase your post honestly sounds exaggerated, for starters, most real ghetto people have a contempt for suburban or middle class posers, but what she said seemed to go right over your head. shes talking about middle class wannabe gangstas whose parents have good jobs etc. i know it gets real with hustlin and even murders, but it really is a fantasy these middle class kids are chasing. they are imitating a lifestyle that originated in black ghettos, when they are not even from the ghetto and have better options than hustlin.


raj | December 23, 2004

i also want to add that middle class whites also get into the gangsta lifestyle, but it less common. i totally understand why these middle class desis,asians etc, get caught up in this lifestyle. they dont fit into the 'white' ideal, the abercrombie life. and then some of these abercrombie whites are the most racist arrogant people. im all for desis standing up for themselves. im all for some arrogant racist white guy getting put in check for making a racist comment to a desi. its enpowering to be a desi thug, to have these assholes who look down on us, to fear us. its good in a way, for us to unite and look out for each other. but why cant desis look out for each other, be proud,tough,cool, stylish etc. but cut back on the whole 'gangsta'crap, which ultimately backfires. be intelligent,finish college,etc. for example, in vancouver the desi thugs are peddling for chinese triads and white hells angels. we are not established, nor have the numbers to rival these long established gangs. so much like a black ultimately is selling for colombians, cubans etc. these desi g's are much the same. they kill each other fighting for supremacy, respect etc. i believe this is by design, the H.A.'s and triads are able to get the most out of the situation by making the desis compete with each other. "divide and conquer" and these kids end up killing each other because they are lost, unable to reconcile our punjabi upbringing with an increasingly ethicless materialistic society...


Ashu | December 28, 2004

I think Raj is watching too many movies. "devide and conquer"? Ha ha! Ay yo my man I'm from Canada, and it ain't that bad...Hells Angels started in Oakland...the ones in Canada are wannabes, and Chinese triads? they stick to their own race with their criminal activity(the real ones at least). I don't know if you ever been to the ghettos in San Francisco or Oakland, but the killing zones are fuckin REAL. not wannabe. Not some kid tryin to be hard. REAL. Kids selling crack to their own mothers. twelve year olds with mack 10s. Black,East Asian,Mexican and yes, Desi.-As for the whole "middle class" Desi thug thing, I agree. BUT hey, aren't we getting a little far from the original subject at hand? ---If you listen to Bohemia's music you realize that he is not promoting the "thug image". His album (Not just the mp3's off his website) is full of great lyrical content. Dude has got to be one of the best rappers out there main stream or not, Desi,Black,White whatever. Hey, I'm proud that we finally have a good rapper for once! Peace Ashu


raj | December 29, 2004

well, im not from Canada, although i have family/friends in Vancouver and Toronto. all im sayin is something like 20 desis have been killed in the vancouver drug trade in just the last couple years. thats alot for vancouver, canada. and they were making real paper, driving new Bimmers,loft apts etc. but ill admit canada is nothing compared to the states crime-wise. ive visited the bay area, but i dont know the area. i do know that by far the majority of ghetto dwellers are black and hispanic. im sure there are some some asian,desi and white but they got to be the minority. maybe its different in the bay area, but where ive lived, theres not alot of love between the different races. ive heard about black and mexicans having beef in cali. most ghetto kalas are racist towards desis. when CH said his two siblings were killed my original thought is yeah they got murdered in a robbery at their store. i dont doubt that some desis are real ghetto thugs, but its rare. as for divide and conquer, ok im going too far, but this is the tactic the white man has used succesfully against all minorities. the sikhs could have possibly defeated the british if our leadership had not sold out. but yeah, i agree that bohemia has talent, and its cool that hes reppin for us and especially the desis in the ghettos. i just hate to see some desi going to prison because he was tryin to front like some kala thug with an 85 IQ...also, what do desis do when they go to prison? i know each pen is different,out here in the detroit area, there are some arabs/middle easterners they can hang with. ive heard in cali, prisons are even more gang/race divided. where would a desi fit in? it sounds like it would be a tough situation..


GG Lopez | December 30, 2004

I am a youth counselor hear in N. California. I am half Pakistani /Latino. I came across this chat-board accidentaly and found it quite interesting. The focus of most of these postings (along with Bohemia) seems to be Desi youth identifying heavily with the street element. I think that young people, no matter what race, get a certain thrill from having a connection to the streets, weather directly or indirectly. Raj is right in that many Desi youth come from suburban backgrounds, but are attracted to the street life. Ashu is also right, in that there are many Desis from the ghettos. But I think that the Bay Area is a very unique case, in that it is a major American metropolis, but it is more racially diverse than most. In the ghettos in Oakland, Richmond or SF for instance, you see Desi kids hanging with Black kids, Asian kids hanging with Chicano kids, etc. The bottom line is, all of these young kids black, yellow and brown are caught up in the same environment. It's sad because they have been so exposed to killing that they seem to consider it a common part of daily life. Some rap music, along with movies and TV contribute to this. In reading up on Bohemia I found that he is actually very conscious of what he puts out and how it will affect listeners. He definitely has that rough street element in his music, but he doesnít do it in a way that manipulates young kids into wanting to be ìhardî. I only wish rappers like 50 cent would take more responsibility in their influence on children of color. Not to sound cheesy, but all of us people of color have a common bond ñ we are all looked upon, and categorized as ëcoloredí. Politicians group us together as a sort of ìcultureî simply based on the fact that we are all different than White-Americans.

dani | January 10, 2005

ok, after looking at websites of the competition, i voted for 'hem. (the 'heem? bo? the karela kid?) poor bobby moon could definitely benefit from a gangsta makeover. sorry to take up space, y'all, but on a personal note: damn, CH, where's the love??? i think YOU better check yourself and all the assumptions you are so quick to make about this stranger's lifestyle, location, life story, etc....although, i have to admit, i had fun (and sepoy might too) picturing me watering a lawn next to a little fence wearing aberfuckie whatever. don't be lazy boyeeee! find a way to express yourself without resorting to brand names, pleeez, and why the hell you wanna dis someone for bein' older than you? that is the lamest, easiest shit i can imagine. if there's one thing that "represents" desi life it's respect for elders... and i am sure such a strong culture can somehow find a way to withstand life in the ghetto and for the record y'all i wasn't only talking about suburban kids (although that's definitely an issue), i'm talking about yes real life ghetto situations where kids who could possibly change their lives, don't, and how the thug appeal is a factor in that. i was trying to say that for those on the borderline (those with working parents or siblings, with some semblance of a home life, even if it's unstable) it's often the gangsta image that wins out over any other course of action. yes dealing and banging is the predominant environment, and one is pressured in many ways (financial need, peer approval, gang allegiances) to participate in it, and it is definitely the most exciting, quick money option...but still not the ONLY option....you gotta be mad brave to work for minimum wage or focus on school when your family needs money and so many people around you are making fast cash and they want you to join them and call you a damn fool or maybe even try to shoot you when you don't. but i've seen a handful of people fight against great disadvantage to do it, it can be done. ok, back to the topic. go bo. win that shit. peace and good luck to all y'all jigars

Singh | January 29, 2005

First off Bohemias allright, and I wanna give him some time to see how he does, but more power to him for what hes doing, About thw whole "thugged" out desi shit, I think that the well of desis, and suburban desis are the ones who mostly try that image on, coming from out of the city into it trying to gang bang or whatever, but I think alot of desis living in the city try having better for themselves, My father was an alcholic, while I was growing up stoppped when I was 14, and now very religious, but it had an impact on my older brother whos now hooked on something, doesnt really come home, my younger brother is an alcholic, hes 19, and I was heavily into drugs up until a year ago, I was arrested with 2 oz of dro, and thats what my wake up call was, we dont live in the best neighborhood, its in Chicagos Rogers Park hood, really mixed, we have gangs, murders, dealers, and hookers, hell down t he block one guy got killed anyone from Chi would know Shox and AK, and the girl down the street is a crack head prostitute, and neighbors are gangsters to, (probably my little brother not sure)were doing OK financially we pay the bills, dad drives cab mom works at bank, we all got our ghetto fabulous rides (ex-cabs tru desis :-) but I try going to school and work my ass off 60hrs week, and hope for the best for me and my family become rich and move out to a better area, ppl need to realize we have our desi thugs, and our desi fakes, it depends on what you want, hell next time you read this I may be drinkin on the corner again, shit devons not the best area, Bloods, Kings, but make somethin of yourself, peace


trutodaeast | January 31, 2005

yo Singh I agree with you, but I think it's funny how all this shit is getting blown so way outa fuckin proportion. I am a Bohemia fan and he ain't really trying to say he's a thug! He's simply talking about his experiences -HIS personal experiences as a desi. It's funny how just because he mentions weed or drink and the occasional gun he's labeled a "gangster rapper". I had the pleadure of actualy meeting this dude at a show he did in Texas, and he was a down ass brotha. -meaning he was down to earth and not acting all hard and shit like alot of y'all are accusing him of. Anyway, I'm proud of the brotha. Peace TruToDaEast

I got love fo Desis who love me back. thas why i show love to my dog Bohemia. All he do is tell it like it is. I met him and he dont try and be no kala. he dont act like a thug. he is a real cool and layed back. but I know that if you came to the Bay tryin to be like what you write you would get checked homie. I dont care of you from South central homie. I can read in yyour words that you not sure if you wanna be a g or a rapper. cuz you cant be both ma jigar. as for me Im a G I got stripes. I get respect from older Desi g's out here in the bay. But yeah. it's a good thing for you that you choose to be on my good side. good choice my jigar. and next time you talk bad about the bay, you can do it in the bay. Come to Hunters Point in San Francisco and run your mouth. see what happens. Better yet, come to Coliseum Garden Projects in East Oakland. you will see why Oakland is nickname Murder Town USA

nadia | April 28, 2005

I heard pacs man stuff. he is okay but he aint all that. hes bitting bohemia calling himself the desi raper


Jay | May 06, 2005

hey of this pakman topic for a sec. what the hell is the deal with Bohemia not being nominated by www.desiclub.com for best musical artist? they put of Kidd Skilly but not bohemia? Kidd skilly isnt trying to hold it down for desis: "to other South Asian rappers, I hope you can put your music before your ethnicity, real music ain't about gimmicks" i respsect that hes trying to make it, and he puts out good music, but hes not representing desis like Bohemia definitley is. i was just shocked to see that he hadnt been nominated for that awards thing http://www.desiclub.com/awards/


Heera | May 10, 2005

Thats messed up if kidd silly is not representing our ethnic, then why was he chosen for a nonimie??? the only person in HIPHOP who represend our people is Or BOHEMIA or PAKMAN..why then Kidd silly?!!


kid skilly | May 18, 2005

because kid skilly paid money to be nominated just like alot of the other "underground" artists who aint big yet. People who deserved to be nominated bu werent probably wouldnt sell out and pay fo dat shit! skillz


Jazzy B | May 20, 2005

end of the day, everyone of u should keep on hating or showing love to their favorites while them niggaz make the dough and fool all of you! :) hahahaha dumb ass fuckin niggaz ya'll is...it's called life bitches...fudhi vich lun in other words...get it or forget it...ya fuckin nerds! Jazzy Binder

PAKMAN | June 02, 2005

WASSUP PEOPLE!!! I Havn't been on this site for a min..but DAMM People are fighting ova bohemia's, n PAK's music that they should get awarded??? funny yarr.. I think kidd silly is a talented singer/HipHop artist.. Even thoe he got nominated, he put work like us, and all it is the fan base...we all are building fans and friends, but we should more payin attention in supporting as voting in stuff like nominees n sh*t, but its cool , to me i thank y'all who love my music and support me as an artist, that gives me more fuel to make and make more music, if it wasnt for u people i wouldn't even be here writting.... But i thank you, and if i deserv a chance to be in the nominees one day, its only because of u guys, i dont care politics of this game, as long as ur music is tight, and u guys support ....I would get my chance , my GOD is with me.. and BOHEMIA!! he got a fan base too, he's doing his music, tight, props to that foo , what so ever how he play the role in this music industry... He'll get what he deserves as long as u guys do ur part , and that is support.. Keep up Desi's.. We all are one desi , what so ever...so we should be more happy instead fighting ova who should'v won the nominnee... Every body get there chances in life.... MEHNAT KHABHI RAIGANN( WASTE) NEHI JATI... We all artists do our part...u guys do ur's and support ur desi's...

Jiten | June 03, 2005

yo pakman stop tryna be like bohemia u f*kin wanna be... lol -jb


PAKMAN | June 03, 2005

A foo ..Jiten ... DAMM!! i never seen or knew that some people could be very ignorent...I sure dont' wanna call u a sand n*****, cuz then im dissin myself by dissin you.. But its ok my brother , i wish i could know how to pretend to be Bohemia...But to be honest im not into talkin sh*t... Cuz i consider that u are nothing but a f*kin hater..are u afraid of change??? Iv been rappin way before Bohemia even exist...I dont know if u been to dess, but you should find out that PAKMAN , has a name and reputation in Dess...u guys are so excited of lisning abut drgs, n bitches...dont get me wrong i luv'em all, but insted of hatin on somebodies music, u should come hang out here with me and see the real life of PAKMAN, then tell me to my face that im tryin to be Raju.... I am nothin like that foo...He got his own style . listen to my song (unless u dont know ur own language) and u just listen. Probly when im flowing u understand few words and then assume that im tryin to be raju...Naww homie... LET ME GET THIS SH*T STRAIGHT...ANSWER MY QUESTION.. if someone is rappin in a language what u could speak, does that mean someone's copiying Raju's shit...or tryin to be like him??? if thats true, then all the rapper in the states(US) or OVERSEAS..rappin singin in english ..so that means they are copyin tupac, biggie, Wutang, Marvin gay, Jada....they all fake ..right??!! NO!! they have all speak english and they have their own style and lyrics, which they speak the truth about life... and now if someone is reppin ur dess or reppin ur dess by language, they are tryin to be somebody..right JITEN!!?? Its a shame that these people ova here are nothin but haters, that not just hate their own people, they hate the way they sing, or rap.. Remember brother, Listen to the music(mine) then listen to the lyrics, then listen to Raju(Bohemia) then listen to his lyrics, then tell me what is that u think im tryin to be him... I dosnt mean if u heard someone 1st flow or sing or rap , then the other is automatically fake... I havent heard Bohemia made any comment about me tryin to be him... what does he gotta say about this..iv been in the rap game in the states for about 5 years now... Before that in dess iv been in music for about scince i was 15 man.... WHY PEOPLE ARE SO IGNANT??? I'v been performing on the road too, last month i was at the Lowrider car show with the yingyang twins, Joonbug, Grimm, i hope u were ther..cuz then u definatly woudv seen me... you shoud'v been ther i would brought u bakstage and we could have fun together , many girls and much to smoke brother.... Stop hatin and start appreciating ur desi my friend..other than that open ur eyes and grow up.. Muv luv n respect to all my desi's.. PAKMAN

Yo I just heard Bohemia hooked up with Bally Sagoo, then I went to Bally's site to see for myself. It's 100%! He got previews of the new album and that shit is off tha fuckin HOOK. PS Fuck you haters, you wish you could walk in Bohemia's shoes. This is J MAN from East Oakland.


hell with the name | November 30, 2005

Okay, I didn't bother to go through all the garbage that's been posted here from a bunch of lowdown contaminated scuzzballs, if you do happen to have something called 'perception skills' then most of you will start thinking straight after this. I would imagine that maybe most of the people participating in this 'great' discussion about the 'GREAT' Punani Rapper are teenagers, punjabis and how can I forget the pakis. So I'll take it for granted that you guys lack basic intelligence much less the ability to even express your thoughts because of language difficulties. But lets not get into that, basically the reason I'm posting this message is to try and knock some sense into your heads (if you have one). This supposedly great rapper of yours is appenrently the best thng that's happened to the Desi community, right? I mean that's what all of you are trying so hard to say eh? Guy talks about the lowest forms of human material and now he's being talked about in an almost honarary manner. It really is sick if you come to think about it that this is the disposition of desi youth all over the world whereas Desis (Indians) have so much positive things to be proud of. Why is it that most south asian kids and adults are more drawn towards a kind of music that's so despicable that it doesn't even need any criticism; pretty much every rapper depicts how much art and skill is involved in this genre. You cannot define skills on your own terms it has to expand on creativity. I can fart on a microphone for 2 hrs and say dierehha is the driving force behind my 'talent'. Do you understand what I'm saying or is this more like an overhead transmission situation? Just out of curiosity, if you guys really understand what skill is, have you heard of Pink Floyd? Please do yourself a favour and listen to them and educate yourselves on what defines 'Talent'. What's next some punjabi dimwit coming out as a pimp and he's the next big thing after this cockroch? Howcome desis don't comeout with a truely inspiring music that can actually be appreciated? I bet every desi kid knows very little about the Black Culture and it's significance in how music has evolved, be it RAP or ROCK and yet they work the asses off to talk black, walk black, act black and whats worse taking pride in the fact that your such a sham. So you really want to be black and tough, how many of you have heard of Jimi Hendrix or even Billie Holliday? Let me take a stab at it, ummmm NONE. Cos you know shit about youself or the neighbouring community. Artistic Creativity may never be introduced to Pakis and Sikhs but this has inturn caused a whole lot of damage to a big ethnic group. I have so much more to say but time isn't allowing me to. But do think about who you are and who would you rather have representing your community or youth.


Aarreee | December 01, 2005

f the haters


Bohemia's Fan | December 01, 2005

NOTE FOR THE HATERS: If you dont like Bohemia; dont get on this site and talk about Bohemia... its that simple... If you are taking time to talk shit about someone you dont even know, what does that say bout you?...let me answer that for you...YOU'RE A LOOSER...lol.... 'go Bohemia!'


mike | December 05, 2005

This is for uh "To Hell With The Name", Uh yeah I am Desi, Pakistani to be specific, and aside from more traditional Desi music I listen to Pink Floyd, I listen to Marvin Gaye, I listen to Hendrix and YES I listen to Bohemia. What your saying about Bohemia is similar to what those old conservative White people were saying about Hendrix when he was making music, expressing himself, and showing his uh, skills. You obviously have a stromg connection to this whole movement which Bohemia has created, because you damn near wrote a fuckin thesis on your feelings about him. You are just like those old conservative white people who thought Hendrix was making nothing but foul, degrading noise. If you do your research and actualy pay attention to Bohemia, you will find that he has a great deal of substance in his lyrics, not just guns or street shit. So to you I say this: Keep on being frustrated that you have to come home from your job every day and sit on your little laptop typing your little hate mail which Bohemia will probably never even fuckin see!! While Bohemia is out flying around the country doing shows and meeting famous people. And Desis like me will sit back reading your arrogant (Yet insecure) bullshit and laugh AND support people like Bohemia who bring us FORWARD into the spotlight. -If you can define the "Perception Skills" of an entire ethnic group on your own terms, I think a good rapper can define his Rap Skills on his own. PS, You seem like a guy who feels very inadequate with his own life, to go on a website and talk so much shit about someone you have never met. lol GO BOHEMIA -Mike, Educated, Non-Black-Influenced, Classicaly trained Pianest-Acoustic Guitar-Dhol playing proud DESI

Peter O | December 22, 2005

What the fuck language are you all talking? It can't be from Earth!!!! Rap is the APITIMY of what "sucks" means. Why the fuck can't you stupid asses "SING?" I don't give a fuck what your argument will consist of, It just sucks really BAD!!! Some of you say "It's not rap, it's hip hop!" Well here it is in a nut shell....If you aren't singing, IT'S RAP!!!! Rap is for those that CAN'T sing!!! That's pretty bad. Most of you can't even keep in a real groove. Then you take songs from somebody else and "SLAUGHTER THE SHIT OUT OF IT!" Which proves one thing....You have absolutely NO originallity!!!! You destroy music that I grew up with and then you say "Hey man, check out what I wrote!" Man, you wrote SHIT!!! You all target kids that don't know any better about music and you make a fortune that you DON'T deseve!!! If you actually made MUSIC, then maybe you could actually EARN that money!!!! What's his face that made that movie "Get rich or die trying" I wouldn't pay shit to see that!!! Why don't you all try actually singing for a change, or are you afraid that you can't and would never make any money? Also, Rap and music should never be mentioned in the same sentence together (Unless describing something like this) There is NO music in rap and and HOW do you "SING" rap???????? To rap, means to talk...if you and I are having a conversation, we are having a "RAP" session. That's what RAP means.......TO TALK!!!!! There is NO singing!!!! So QUIT trying to change the meanings to various words and confusing people that actually speak english. Oh yeah, That STUPID ASS BASS you all like to blast out your windows and crank up at home, Soon, there will be a lot of people responding to that. Since the police don't do nothing about it and it's extemely irritating, people are going to start doing what an area of my home town is doing!!! There will be "GAUNTLETS" that when people line up and down the streets of their neighborhoods and arm themselves with rocks, when you drive through their street, you'll get bombed with rocks. I'm warning you all, KNOCK IT OFF!!!

We live the desi life out here period. IT STARTED HERE for fuk sakes. much props to bohemia for not forgetting his roots or where he's from. This guy is real!

shanti | April 05, 2006

wow, this is crazy has anyone else heard about this??? is this true? RAPPER QUESTIONED IN CONNECTION TO SF MURDER By LINDA DEUTSCH, AP Special Correspondent IBA News, InsideBayArea.com, Oakland, ca. Rumors are circulating that the SF Police Department brought rapper Bohemia in for questioning, after an associate who was driving Bohemia's car,was pulled over and arrested for possession of an unregistered semi-automatic firearm. Sources say the weapon may have been used to commit a murder which occurred in San Francisco in June of 2001. That murder was believed to have been in retaliation for the execution-style killing of Bohemia's close friend, Suresh Mangoli, which took place just three days earlier. Bohemia recently returned from a press conference in London to promote his new album "Pesa Nasha Pyar", which translates to "Money Drugs Love". He was spotted back stage at Indian pop singers' Raghav and Juggy D concert in Oakland, but when asked about the rumor he declined to comment. His producer SHA One spoke on his behalf "This story is non-sense. That situation was very unfortunate, but no one in The Outfit including Bohemia has any knowledge of who was involved. A friend was lost unexpectedly and we had nothing to do with any type of so-called retaliation. People see a rapper gaining success and they automatically want to associate him with criminal activity and tarnish his image." Bohemia's camp claims to have no knowledge of the incident, but in 2004 he recorded a tribute song for Mr. Mangoli which accounts in detail, a vengeful retaliation against those who killed him. The song, though never officially released, was leaked on to the internet several months ago. Sgt. Neville Gittens, a spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department said that he is aware of the song and will consider using it as evidence in the now re-opened case.

Rap artist Bohemia denied entry to Canada Rapper Bohemia, who was scheduled to appear live at the Croatian Cultural Center in Vancouver, was refused entry to Canada on Friday and detained for 8 hours in a holding cell by Immigration Canada, said the concert promoter. "The version we got from Immigration Canada was vague because of their confidentiality and privacy laws," said Jhind of Dream Time Records LA, who was accompanying The Punjabi Rapper. "Bohemia and his entourage arrived Friday at 10 a.m. from Oakland. Every member of his entourage was allowed in except him. All the paperwork was fine. "Bohemia felt he was waiting too long. You could tell he was getting aggravated," Jhind said. "He was asked a few questions by the immigration officer and was detained and put under watch. Then he was escorted out at 7:00 p.m. the same night." Through an unconfirmed source, The Punjabi Rapper might have been denied entry into Canada because a criminal charge was laid against him two years ago in the United States. An official at Immigration Canada said he could not discuss the specifics of individual cases, but confirmed the rapper was denied entry into the country. "Normally, someone coming here as an entertainer is referred to us," said Jean Edmonds, manager of Immigration Canada for Vancouver. "I can't comment on whether he has (a criminal record) or not, but individuals with a criminal record would have problems entering unless they had prior consent." Officials would not comment on whether the rapper was detained at the Vancouver airport, but they confirmed, "individuals who are denied entry are sometimes held until the next available flight." At the Croatian Cultural Center in Vancouver where the much anticipated debut appearance was to take place, an announcement was made for the crowd, followed by tracks from Bohemia's latest album blasting through the loud speakers. The Punjabi rapper's follow up Sunday performance in Edmonton was also cancelled. Jhind said Bohemia was arrested two years before he tried to enter Canada, but was not sure what he has been charged with. "It appeared as it the Canadian Officials had his whole Rap Sheet -- it had all his charges listed on it -- I guess they were holding him on that and questioning him on that. They kept him in the immigration interview for a few hours." The 26-year old Bohemia is widely recognized as the pioneer of 'Desi-Hip-Hip'. His latest album 'Pesa Nasha Pyar' [Money, Drugs, Love] under the Music Mogul Universal Records India and Ishq Records UK was released in April 2006 and remain in the Top Ten for 7 weeks in India. Many recent performers brought to the city from the U.S. by local promoters have faced hassles at the Vancouver International Airport, including Eminem and DJ Clue. "Bohemia's management is in contact with the Canadian promoters in efforts to organize a makeup date," Jhind said. "However, I firmly believe there is a red flag on Bohemia's name. He may not get into Canada even with a minister's pardon due to heighten security by Immigration Canada and given his [Bohemia] record. Many eager fans paid the VIP $65 looking forward to meet the king of Punjabi Rap in-person. © desi-hip-hip press 2006 http://www.bloglines.com/blog/dhh-r

YO ppls need to check out InnoVAsian, three desi rappers from the UK. They are on another level in terms of lyrics and they make the dopest tracks I've heard coming out from desi mans...fo real, sum of the stuff they touch on in their album is killer. Im big on hip-hop n desi music, and int ever seen another act with more chances to crossover n represent us all in the mass music market (unlike jay sean+raghav clowns did looking like cheap rip-offs of existing artists)... Check em out on www.myspace.com/innovasianuk oh, n they got a rap in urdu...pure poetry! braaaaaaaaaap!!!!

DESI MOBB | November 27, 2006

DESI MOBB LEARN TO RAP: Ima a desi rapper, but i aint fighting for recognition. If you push the wrong button, you'll be fighting for reputation. I dont diss no body, but i can get with the slang. I dont really carry guns, but ma fist goes bang At the moment these rappers rap critics call them the best, these rappers only seen shit from the comfort of their nest. Its best if you rappers rest, and give rappin a break. Go become a doctor and give back what you take. Bohemia and Pakman, can take their rap up their back man. Take their crap, and put it up on a trash can Desi Mobb is ma name, a.k.a KanKushon, Hide yo kids behind yo back, cuz i can get with the cussin. I dont fuck wid ma cousins, I dont rub against manikens, and I aint at war, with these illegal Americans. Jus showin some love, to the desi page, DesiMobb holla back, got the crazy gage. OVER AND OUT!! WhAt U gOt On DaT??

Da 1 and Only | January 27, 2007

Damn, I think I came on dis page too late. Well I'm Paki and Muslim and DAMN Proud of it, but there's a alot to say. Well, what ya'll said iz true, I grew up in hoods my whole lyf, from LA to Ny and FL and the Chi and there's mo cities in btwn. no lie, but the point iz all minorities need to stick together, fuck the white people and lets prove we can do somethin too, than just fight. Shit, I no not every1 haz to luv Boehima or Pakman or any of dat shti, but fo once can the minorities become something to prove dat brown (all shades, lol) is strong and we don't need no fuckin white superpower ruling us? We desi's, muslims, etc. have more in common with latinos, blacks, asians, etc. than some damn white bitches. Yea I have my gripes about Bohemia, like any other rapper, but I gotta give him props. He's tryin to rep da real desis dat r out here. I just wish he'd rep his paki self more. I would luv to hear n see him on urban stations (not no fuckin mainstream) and it helps dat hes really fine. 1 of my girls whos black iz all into him now, she doesn't no a damn word of punjabi but shes like damnnn, dat nigga is fine . point iz, hes appealing for all minorities I think and reppong wit most desis live like in america (and overseas), just like most minoroites, in da hood. Lets try and make it betta, fo ourselves and future generations, but dont EVA forget who u r, where u came from and not be some fuckin token desi for da damn media.

@ Ballu : Want to make one thing clear that Shawn Mixman is nothing more than a DJ ... shown is side kick for Sha One is real producer that gave the name Bhomia to a street thug called Raja. As for Shawn.... I think one then music he is good at photoshop and putting his picture next to other producers like Dr. Zues and DJ Sanj.... Mixman cann't even play any keys ... even Bohemia know how to play keyboard.
