South Asians in Hip-Hop

If anyone was interested in the growing number of hindi lyrics in American hip-hop and R and B, it seems Raje Shwari (i guess she had kal penn syndrom and made her first name into her first and last name) is responsible. Appearing on Jay-Z's song, 'The Bounce" and with Ms. Jade on the Slum Village remix for "Disco", Raje is the one adding some original (or not original) Hindi Lyrics to hip hop. Apparently the famed producer Timbaland heard her demo and took her under his wing. Big-Ups to Raje for bringing the South Asian Sound to the mainstream.
