With their third liberate from the upcoming debut album Herock, rapper Sumit Roy and producer Dub Sharma provide a cheeky but unsparing gape at corruption, greed and more on “Paisa Unfounded.” 

Roy describes the tune as “a realisation so as to observe thru the dirt. Our governments, banks and companies are frequently on a flight to model, but they never land. It is all but an illusion.” Selecting apart government schemes including the demonetization debacle in 2016 and surveillance via Aadhar playing cards, Roy calls the monitor an “unfiltered warning” about the fickleness of money and energy. 

In the tune video directed by filmmaker and photographer Nitish Kanjilal, there’s thuggery, forgery and the total lot in between that puts “Paisa Unfounded” within the memoir territory of a Bollywood movie of yore. Roy, in possession of a “magic pencil” which is able to contain notes, draws ironic parallels to scams and political apathy within the video. It affords a instant detour into but another upcoming Roy liberate, called “Sab Jagmag.” 

The tune follows singles from Herock equivalent to “Baari Hamaari” and “Chowkidaar” (whose tune video used to be directed by Kolkata filmmaker Q), all of which feature staunch criticism while advocating for necessary freedoms and an impending turning of tides. 

Look the video for “Paisa Unfounded” beneath. Hear the monitor on Apple Music, Spotify and JioSaavn.
