The 23-year old Krishna Kaul has been rapping since the age of 13 in London, but he came into the spotlight a few years later when he took on his stage name of Young Prozpekt and sang about socio-political issues facing Indian society.
He is also the 1st rapper to sing in Hindi, as a means to get his message to the masses.
He released a song titled Vijay which brought to the fore the grim realities of child labor and poverty. This song and video has been made in collaboration with 'Save the Children', an international charity organization.
The video uploaded on Youtube received tremendous positive response. Speaking about the upload he says, "I personally believe that music knows no caste, color, sex or any other distinction and therefore can’t be confined to a particular strata".
Another of his videos which has taken Youtube by storm and amassed 800 views within days of posting is Lokpal Freestyle, which touches on the issues of corruption of the Lokpal Bill.
Krishna Kaul then decided to go mainstream, taking on the name KRSNA and working on the release of his debut album "Sell Out" which has been produced in association with Contrabands.
KRSNA performed to packed houses on his multi-city tour covering Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune, Delhi and Hyderabad.
