Dee MC’s Songs Performances and Career

Dee MC’s Career

I'm a 25-year-old rapper from Bombay city with the stage name Dee MC and the name Deepa Unnikrishnan. My parents moved to the city from Kerala and I have a married older sister. I was born and raised in the small town of Kalyan (roughly 60km from the main city). 

I come from a modest middle-class family that values traditions and values above all else. Being on stage is a feeling I have treasured since I was a young child because I have been performing since I was 5 years old as I studied Bharatanatyam. I never considered pursuing a career in the arts when I was younger but creativity has always been a part of me and over time its influence on my life led me to take an unconventional path.

Dee MC posted a video in 2012 that was a cover of a Nicki Minaj song. Deepa never attended professional training or had a mentor much like an Underground artist. When Deepa was a college student she began studying hip-hop. She began studying creating music and honing her skills in Bollywood. 

My path toward dance has been very inspirational. I started dabbling in hip-hop through dance. I started dancing when I was five years old. Since I have Bharatnatyam dance experience performing on stage is nothing new to me. I already had the desire to perform in front of people and an artistic inclination.

When I was 17 I started b-boying (also known as b-girling an athletic form of street dance popular in the United States) but I was unable to continue. I became very interested in rapping after that and I first began in 2011. Dee Mc said. Deepa Unnikrishnan also known as Dee MC is a well-known figure in the Indian hip-hop community. 

Dee appeared as herself in the 2019 film 'Gully Boy ' after representing India internationally in the UK (Alchemy Festival by Southbank Centre) Canada (DesiFest) and Belgium (La Belle Hip Hop Festival). Her music reflects her own journey while also addressing issues that are important to society as a whole.

Aside from her appearances on Colors' Rising Star and MTV's Antisocial Dee has sung for Bollywood hits such as 'Jagga Jiteya' from the film URI and 'Shuru Karein Kya' from Article 15. Beginning her hip-hop journey through dance she gradually fell in love with the genre's music and began writing her own raps in 2012.

 Her music reflects her own journey while also being socially conscious. Dee MC is now a well-known face in Indian hip-hop having collaborated with numerous brands and appearing in films and television shows. Dee MC is also the editor-in-chief of DesiHipHop.com the leading South Asian Hip Hop news website. On October 30th 2019 she released her debut album 'Dee=MC².'

Dee MC’s Best Songs

Vadhaiyaan

Dee MC wrote 'Vadhaiyaan' as a response to a society in which women who express strong political views are frequently intimidated and silenced through physical force the threat of sexual assault or online doxxing. 

This richly layered single from her debut album served as a demonstration of her moral fortitude as she stood her ground against the nation's rising tide of violence against minorities and urged us to follow her lead.

Piece of Mind

She has also been a vocal supporter of an artist's freedom to experiment with their medium without being constrained by corporate policies or commercial interests. The desi hip-hop scene was targeted by numerous companies looking to profit from the genre's popularity surge. 

Musicians started crafting their songs to fit formulaic structures that had worked for the previous week's one-hit-wonder. Dee MC reassures upcoming independent artists in 'Piece of Mind' that success is measured not by the size of a check but rather by the ability to leave a lasting legacy.

Chaar Logon Ki Baatein

The debut hit for Dee MC this song demonstrated her ability to blend pop-influenced visuals while also hinting at the untapped creativity she possessed. She also made fun of those who try to crush the dreams of young girls by telling them what they should do through the art of her writing.

Rang

One of the few artists in the nation Dee MC has used brand projects and partnerships to amplify her story of empowerment and strengthen her identity as a conscious progressive artist. Rang a single from her debut album Dee MC2 is a perfect example of her ability to balance being commercially appealing and criticising the social structures of the nation. 

The project which included cosmetics company Nykaa as a partner focused on how businesses have exploited India's obsession with fair skin for decades to cause trauma for young girls there.

Jagga Jiteya from URI

Uri: The Surgical Strike is a 2019 Indian Hindi-language action film written and directed by debutant Aditya Dhar and produced by RSVP Movies' Ronnie Screwvala. 

The film is a fictionalized account of the true events of the retaliation to the 2016 Uri attack starring Vicky Kaushal Yami Gautam Mohit Raina Kirti Kulhari and Paresh Rawal and tells the story of Col Kapil Yadav (Kaushal) of the Para (Special Forces) who played a pivotal role in the events. Daler Mehndi Dee MC and Shashwat Sachdev created the song. 

Shuru Karein Kya from Article 15

Anubhav Sinha is the director and producer of the 2019 Indian Hindi-language crime drama movie Article 15; he also co-wrote the screenplay with Gaurav Solanki. 

Ayushmann Khurrana stars in the film as a police detective who investigates the disappearance of three girls from a small village uncovering a history of caste-based oppression along the way. Nassar Manoj Pahwa Kumud Mishra Isha Talwar Sayani Gupta Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub Sushil Pandey Veen Harsh and Sumbul Touqeer are among the supporting actors. 

The Zee Music Company label released the soundtrack for the movie which was composed by Anurag Saikia Piyush Shankar Devin Parker and Gingger and featured lyrics by Rashmi Virag Shakeel Azmi Slow Cheeta Dee MC Kaam Bhaari and SpitFire. Singers SlowCheeta Dee MC Kaam Bhaari and Spitfire contributed to the song Shuru Karein Kya. The composers are Gingger and Devin 'DLP' Parker. The lyrics were written by SlowCheeta Dee MC Kaam Bhaari and Spitfire.

Jumla

Dee MC performs 'JUMLA ' a conscious hip-hop anthem that aims to awaken listeners to the mask that surrounds politics and the importance of being more aware of their surroundings. 

Jumla literally means 'false information ' and this is unquestionably the age of false prophets. The drama that surrounds a 'beef' is occasionally known to fascinate the Indian hip-hop scene. Some fans even go so far as to purposefully try to provoke their favourite performer into releasing a diss song. 

In such a setting artists who adamantly refrain from participating in this sensationalist trend and instead concentrate on putting together a unique narrative tend to be forgotten when discussing MCs at the top of their game. One of these bold artists who forges her own path while inspiring others to follow suit is Dee MC.

Dee MC’s Struggles

Dee MC’s Struggles

Dee MC says When I first started it was a move motivated by passion rather than career. We all took on odd jobs after graduation because there was no chance of sustaining ourselves as hip-hop artists when I started. 

My family has always viewed it as a hobby rather than a source of income for me. After I visited the UK in 2017 and Belgium in 2018 their perspectives shifted. Traveling for my music earning a living from it earning respect for my work while doing it and appearing in the film 'Gully Boy' were some of the things that convinced my family that I should pursue a career as an artist.

Is there anything difficult about being a woman in your field?Dee Mc says I'm trying really hard not to go on a feminist rant right now haha! Sincerity dictates that a woman must overcome a number of obstacles before she can even consider entering the field such as obtaining support from her family and the wider community. 

Very few women are so empowered that they decide to disregard approval or validation and bravely pursue their dreams. Indians from the middle class view the entertainment industry as a huge maze filled with drugs and sex and they frequently try to persuade young people not to pursue unconventional careers.

In my experience women are asked to stay at home more often than men because the environment is unsafer for them. If a woman succeeds in the industry after the initial struggle at home she will need to be more cautious about who she can trust because everything she does is somehow viewed as a reflection of her 'character.' Expectations of marriage and children which start much earlier for women than for men are another common barrier. Everywhere there are exceptions so I'm not attempting to generalise.

Do you have any advice for girls who want to work in your industry?Start by appreciating your thoughts because they help to shape who you are. Be fearless in challenging the same traditions if you feel they are restricting you. When it comes to hip hop music in particular avoid starting it for fame or attention because doing so makes it simpler for others to influence you and shape your perception of your work. 

Hip hop will change your life for the better if you approach it with the goal of learning and self-improvement. As women in different parts of this country have varying degrees of freedom to even start questioning patriarchy I understand that it is easier said than done. But if you are fortunate make the most of it by helping others and never be afraid to advocate for change.
