Listen: Anik Khan – ‘Cleopatra’

Between two worlds, but straddling both...

Anik Khan knows that he needs to be true to himself – but defining himself is the issue.

Brought up in Queens, New York but with South Asian heritage, he found himself coming of age between two remarkably different worlds.

So he simply straddles both. Making hip-hop with Eastern tinges, the newcomer's upcoming EP is part Brooklyn and part Bengali.

New cut 'Cleopatra' is online now, and it was produced by Anik and Melo-X. Matching up tempo beats to slightly poignant lyrics, those deft Bollywood samples lend something different, something distinct.

Tune in now.
