Charlie Sloth surprises rapper Divine and gives us the first ever Hindi “Fire In The Booth”.
Divine was being interviewed by Tommy Sandhu on his show on the BBC Asian Network. When Tommy asked Divine how had heard about the BBC, Divine answered that he was a big fan of the fire in the booth series. Giving us a Cilla Black “Surprise, Surprise” moment, in walks Charlie Sloth and gives Divine his first ever fire in the booth. As well as making history as Divine is the first ever Hindi rapper to have a fire in the booth.
Giving us a classic selection of beats, Charlie Sloth was on point with: Notorious Big, Kano, Mobb Deep and more all played for Divine. Not missing a step, even though some of the beats he had never heard. Divine spits pure fire in his native tongue, single, double and even semi triple time flows matched with deep, heartfelt lyrical content. Divine has laid down history and set the bar high as the first Hindi rapper in the booth and going to show despite the subtitles for us so we know what he was rapping about. Charlie Sloth did not have that luxury but he said quite rightly the flow, energy and passion from Divine spoke loud enough. From the UK to India, HipHop to Grime and back again, a Fire In The Booth is all about the energy and the moment.
