India's very first wedding rapper - M.C. Sid
“When Sidharth Sood’s friend Jigar Shah asked, “Can you do this rap at a sangeet?” he replied, “If you pay me, I’ll do it in your bathroom.” Since then, there has been no looking back for Sidharth Sood aka MC Sid.
It was the beginning of the boom of the Indian wedding industry way back in 2009 – destination weddings were just starting out and it was quite an epic moment in Sidharth’s journey, making him India’s first ‘wedding rapper’.
Sidharth’s rap journey started in the early 2000s when he was slim and not-so-shady with a love rap for a childhood crush. With the ladies digging his game, the young Sid, an Eminem fan and self-confessed ‘Delhi Boy’ finessed his rap game and got his first break at a cousin’s sangeet in 2007.
“Everyone there was smashed but thought that my rap rhymes were kind of cute and thought I was doing this ‘Apache Indian Thing’ as my maasi called it,” says 33-year-old Sid.
One thing led to another and soon, Siddharth Sood transformed into MC Sid, the rapper who spit fires rhymes in night clubs across India.
He even did the opening act for Akon’s first-ever concert India in 2011.”
