Rap & Rage: Gaana, Gun And Gangster In Punjab’s Music

In Punjab’s popular music, the rap is more about celebration of dominance, not of protest

Oh Piche Piche Turrdi Aa Fame Ajj Kal
Aunda Ae Star’an Vich Name Ajj Kal
Tere Karke Gaane Sadde Ni Chalde
Landu Launde Mere Te Blame Ajj Kal

(Nowadays fame follows me everywhere,
Nowadays my name is counted among celebrities
Our songs are popular not because of you
The good-for-nothing keep blaming me nowadays)
