Ranveer is a big fan of ‘SlowCheeta’. He relates to the rapper’s lyrics, given their similar backgrounds. “I have a special affinity for Cheeta. Rap artistes are generally identified by the hood/gully that they’re from, and Cheeta and I share a code – 0 50! This boy is immensely talented. He’s got an easy vibe and laidback style and just when you get comfortable, he’ll throw something at you that you didn’t see coming,” Ranveer said.
“As easygoing as he is, he’s got aggression and grit, and his layers peel off bit by bit, revealing the multiple facets of the artiste that he is,” Ranveer added.
