Meet Bigg Boss contestant 7 – Roll Rida


Remember Bruce Lee movie? and Chiranjeevi introduction in that movie? Even though Chiranjeevi could not save the movie, his introduction scene was designed and shot well. During Chiranjeevi’s entry, there will be a rap song played behind – – “Star, Star, Get readu for the show.. Megastar.. Andarivadu, Apadbandhavadochaadoch..”. That small rap bit song was composed and song by Roll Rida.

Roll Rida is one among 16 contestants participating in Bigg Boss season 2 Telugu. Like Bhanu Sri, he too joined the show in celebrity category, but many people could not identify who he is. Of course people who follow his raps and songs in Youtube know him. His actual name is Rahul Kumar and his stage name is Roll Rida. He did B.Tech and was software engineer at an MNC dream but later resigned to his job to pursue his dreams. He has huge following in youtube and several of his songs have lakhs of views in youtube. His rap songs like Kirana (where he gives the list of items he need from Kiran shop in a song to Kirana shop owner) Breaking news (where he reads breaking news in form of rap song) were huge hits. So is his song on Sammakka Sarakka Jathara. He has that immense talent of turning words into songs. His rap song on KTR too was a very big hit in social media. His ‘kite’ song has more than 1 crore views in youtube. He also released solos like ‘O Pilla’, and “Dilkush” that were instant hits.

He worked with music directors like Keeravani, SS Thaman and Anoop Rubens. He gave rap song bits (like the one in Bruce Lee for Chiranjeevi) to many heroes like – Akhil (Manam), Nitin (A Aa, heart attack), Pawan Kalyan (Gopala gopala), Kalyan Ram (Ism), Ram (Hyper), NTR (Temper). Even though he worked for many music directors, many heroes and many movies, his scope is very small movies as he gets to sing rap bit 1 minute or so. even though that rap beat helps in elevating the scene, it doesn’t get noticed like a song and the singer singing that song.

In Bigg boss also he was seen as cool guy with happy-go-lucky attitude.
