Smokey the Ghost is a socio-conscious Indian rapper who is on a mission to find the identity of Indian Hip Hop. Hailing from the city of Bangalore, he has been a pioneer in the Indian Hip Hop Scene for the past 15 Years. Being the founding member of the popular group, Machas With Attitude; he rendered his voice to many popular Bollywood films like Chennai Express & Detective Byomkesh Bakshy. In 2017, he collaborated with electronic duo, Aerate Sound, which led him to be the first rapper from India to appear on the Bangalore edition of The Boiler Room. In late 2017, Smokey the Ghost & Aerate Sound performed at The Magnetic Fields Festival as well. Apart from performances, Smokey also started “The Hum Hip Hop Project” at The Humming Tree, thus providing a platform for Hip Hop performances in the city.
