Hip-hop discovered the 'rebel' inside Hard Kaur?

MUMBAI: RJ Vidya Balan’s BIG FM show is getting popular with its every episode and the next guest on her show was none other than rapper Hard Kaur. Known for her bold outspoken nature, Kaur spoke her heart out, while revealing that it was hip-hop music, which brought the rebel in her to the fore. She was accompanied by actress Flora Saini.

When asked about the hardships she had to go through as a child Hard Kaur said, “My mother and I faced a lot of challenges after losing my father at the age of 5. My mom was a therapist, who wanted to pursue beauty against the will of my paternal grandparents. They hence burnt her salon down. Looking at the tragedies of my life, I like to refer to myself as the queen of tragedy. I’m Meena Kumari.”

Further into the conversation on the atrocities of domestic violence Hard Kaur shared an incident that changed her life with a heavy heart. She exclaimed, “When I was 14 years old, I returned home to see that my stepdad had hit my mother with a tawa (frying pan) and bent her fingers in the opposite direction. I don’t know what got into me. I ended up hitting him that evening, I hit him a lot. He got the police to get me arrested, but, obviously, I was underage and the police had seen that he had hit my mother, so they arrested him instead. I told my mother, 'You need to leave him; I’ll be your husband.' Because when there is no man in the house, the people around harass you a lot.”

Adding to it, Hard Kaur said, “I really respect Hip-hop because, since the day I started listening to Hip-hop, I discovered a rebel inside me. I could channel my anger through my writing. I think it makes you feel better when you write it.”
