The brand name Hip-hop Tamizha represents the Indian musical duo of Adhi and Jeeva; the duo is bound together by their desire to uplift that genre of music. The combined efforts of the singing duo have uplifted hip-hop music.
They started in 2005 and they operated from the underground. Recognition and honor came the way of their brand of music due to the wide acceptance of the track: “Club le Mabbu le”. That particular track marked the turning point in their career. A radio performance of the track recorded over two million views within two weeks of its release on You Tube in 2011.
Obviously the senior partner of the duo is Adhi. His interests in hip-hop started when he was in tenth grade. His interest to rap began when he came into contact with Michael Jackson’s jam through a neighbor. After getting encouragements from enthusiasts who enjoyed the rap songs he uploaded from the internet; Adhi created an account for his music but code-named it because he feared his parents will not support his interest in music.
His father actually objected to his choice of music as a career. A deal was struck; he was given a year trial on the condition that no moral or financial support will come from his father. The trial period was a huge success and his father has no option that to throw his full weight behind him.
Adhi was born 20th February, 1990. His partner, Jeeva was born on the 29th of June, 1991. Their genre of music is all that is to be said about them. Details about the private lives of the duo are not in the public domain. They are however exercising a disciplined approach in their interactions with people in their private lives. They have remained far away from controversies of any form.
