Guwahati based record producer, Stunnah Beatz, started rapping after listening to American rapper, 50 Cent. Once the interest started growing, the MBA graduate started to explore the business of the art. He realized the importance of production in making hit records so he started working on the digital audio workstation, FL Studio. By then he had already learned the basics of writing lyrics through his text battle days in the social media group, Insignia. Insignia has been the nurturing ground for some of the major Indian underground hip hop artistes.
Stunnah sold his first beat in the year 2013. ‘Initially it was not so profitable, but I didn’t want to give up on my passion.’ Today, Stunnah makes a handsome income by selling beats online. His beat in the Anthem for the Northeast created waves last winter and is still blasted everywhere starting from local taxis to club parties.
He along with his business and producer partner, Sez, have worked on some major global projects. They even produced the beat for Warner Bros Records’ Phora, in Open Letter which was released in early 2016. This was followed by an exclusive beat deal with New York based record label, Cinematic Group.
On 10th July, 2017, he released a single titled ‘Rari’ which features Shillong-based rapper/singer, Banjop. Along with its release, the two announced that their collaborative EP, Comeback, will be released soon. This will be a comeback for Stunnah Beatz as a rapper. Their first single makes it clear that they are here to leave a mark with their addictive melodic flows.
The two artistes are currently being managed by Shillong-based talent management group, MOX.
