THE LIFTED 50 Number 5: MC STΔN
The big boss MC finished first on The Big Boss & changed the game in India
Before going on Big Boss 16, MC STΔN had 1.6 million followers on Instagram. That’s damn good for anyone, but after the season was completed and he dominated the competition to win, MC STΔN now has 11 million fans and is growing every day.
As a staple in the Indian Hip Hop scene, no one gave him much thought when it was announced that he was a contestant on the show. But, in the final weeks, grandmothers were rooting for the pioneer of Pune Hip Hop, and now everybody knows his name. For all Indian MCs, a rising tide lifts all boats, and Hip Hop is well on its way to rivaling Bollywood songs in India, thanks in part to MC STΔN’s victory.
