Slowly, I pushed myself into social gatherings more and started to wander in narrow to wide lanes and pathways of Kolhapur. Prakash feels he had nothing besides himself to rely upon, so poetry and eventually songwriting became his main thin dig at something of poems and then poems to Composition of songs and that to gain a piece of rap music and he has more plans for still doing more, giving more at Nepali RnB and hip-hop.
There’s always something which had apprehended him to write the poems to rap. Basically, a rap itself is a branch of slam poetry. It’s an assortment of emotions with words. It was his emotion, feeling, and self-awareness that motivate him to perform or write a song. These days he has my entire focus only at rap line even more.

Those who had access to power became rich and powerful, but the general public remained poor,” he said, referring to the 10-year long civil war in Nepal from 1996 to 2006. “This is why I want to alert the political fraternity through my hip-hop music.” “From “nothing” to “something” and “something” to now again” More than that ” this feeling of self-manual realization and aim of executing something at Nepali music had been his strength.”
