Divine (rapper)’s mother handed him a computer and a microphone at home, and he started writing music. At first, he would write exclusively in English, sharing his reflections on ordinary occurrences. He initially believed that both his writing and rapping were subpar. But he got better as long as he wrote every day. He also penned three religious rap songs, which gave him the idea to go by the stage name DIVINE.
One of Mumbai’s Finest rap gang members, DIVINE, felt that hip-hop could only be successful in English, hence he would only write and rap in that language. But when he broke away from the crew and started traveling alone, he found that most people around him didn’t speak Hindi, so they couldn’t comprehend his English rap. He started writing in Hindi about his hometown and became known as the rapper DIVINE. The first word he wrote on his debut track, “Yeh Mera Bombay,” was “gully.”
DIVINE was approached by electronic music producer Nucleya to work on a song after the release of their 2016 hit “Jungli Sher.” “Jungle Raja” was a song from Nucleya’s Bass Rani album. In less than a day, DIVINE composed the song’s lyrics and started touring with Nucleya to play it. Divine (rapper) had never before played to a gathering of ten to fifteen thousand individuals. He realized the value of having a strong stage presence and that expanding his fan base would come from performing live. However, he realized that putting on a show with just one artist wouldn’t cut it, so he started Gully Gang.
