LiFTED | Jensen Ooi | 8 Jan 2024

An icon in the Indian hip-hop scene, Emiway Bantai, dropped a bombshell on the last day of 2023 with his latest single, 'W.' This release is more than just a song; it's a proclamation of his unwavering dominance over the Rap game and a testament to his position as one of the country's foremost talents.

Having carved a niche for himself over the past decade, Emiway Bantai is no stranger to making bold statements. In a 2023 single of the same name, he unapologetically crowned himself the King of Indian Hip-Hop, before then naming his follow-up album ‘King Of The Streets’. The prolific rapper’s penchant for braggadocio led to the release of 'W' – a showcase of his lyrical prowess and unyielding confidence.

The Trap banger is an onslaught of rapid-fire verses, asserting his dominance over detractors and reveling in the success he's achieved throughout his illustrious career. The sinister beat by Gore Ocean serves as a fitting backdrop to Emiway's assertive lyrics, setting an atmosphere for the intensity of his message.

The track also comes with a music video. It sees Emiway Bantai alone atop a mountain range, seemingly a visual nod to him towering over the competition on his very own Mount Olympus.
