Featured Music What's Happenin'

“Life” ft. HMD & BattleKATT (Music & Video by Mani D)

Life” is the lead single from HMD’s album “WTF! It’s Bollywood?” on Dip Hop Music.  The track features the powerful rap vocals of HMD and BattleKATT, over the production of Mani D.  The song uses a sample from the legend Mohd. Rafiji that adds to the chilling sound of the track.

This thought-provoking track hits home with lyrics about the hardships and the celebrations of life, and how it can push you in different directions, both good and bad. Sometimes, all you can do is make the best of it, but ultimately our fate is in our own hands.

The video for “Life” draws on the theme of ‘life vs death’ to paint a picture of how easily individuals can find themselves in deadly situations.  It only takes a few bad decisions to become face-to-face with the Grim Reaper, especially if one lives a lifestyle involving risks.  The track is an example of how the fast life can catch up with you when you least expect it, and it brings a reality check to the viewer.  That is, it reminds us that life is so fragile and no matter what type of life you live, death is always just around the corner.
