Divine is an Indian rapper and lyricist who first came into the spotlight with the release of the 2013 song Yeh Mera Bombay which won the ‘Best Video of the Year’ award from Rolling Stone India magazine. His breakthrough came in 2015 when he collaborated with fellow Mumbai rapper Naezy on the song Mere Gully Mein. It eventually led to the conception of the 2019 film Gully Boy which was inspired by the 2 rappers’ lives. Both Divine and Naezy not only contributed to the soundtrack of the film but also pitched in as consultants to help the film’s creative team capture the true essence of Mumbai’s slums and its underground hip hop culture. Divine has contributed as a singer and lyricist for other Bollywood films such as Mukkabaaz (2017) and Blackmail (2018) and has helped with the soundtrack of the Emmy-nominated Netflix web series Sacred Games. His first studio album titled Kohinoor was released in 2019. In February 2019, he launched a record label called Gully Gang Entertainment that aimed to identify and support young hip hop talent in Mumbai.
