Do you MC Square is a farmer’s son?
“Coming from a farming background it was a little tough for me as in our area they don’t even know what is hip hop or rap. Plus I come from a family where even talking about hip-hop and all is not considered decent and it took me a lot of time to convince my family regarding my rapping career,” he was quoted as saying.

Abhishek is a civil engineer by profession but his first love always remains music.
“When I was pursuing my B. Tech degree, I was only thinking about what can I write next and how can I be better at music… I was quite good at my studies. Just because as an artist, I knew how to think and do something logically and studies came to me naturally.”
He never took formal training in his chosen career. “I don’t have any formal training regarding music or rap, I used to listen to a lot of poets and rappers. I started off by writing poems and then slowly I tried to be more professional.”

Recalling his first day on the show, MC Square adds, “I was not nervous at all because this chance for me was like one in a million shots, and I just knew that I was gonna kill it.
“I remember listening to Eminem’s Lose Yourself before going on the stage, and it gave me a lot of motivation, and Badshah sir was quite impressed with what I did on the floor and secondly, I think my song was quite relatable to him as he too belongs from the same background. So, thanks a lot to Badshah Sir.”
He continues to share about the memories he will cherish forever. “There are a lot of memories that I will cherish forever. We all were living together under the same roof for 3 months and we all became a family. It was an emotional moment for us to go our own ways, but that’s how life works and that’s how the world works.”
MC Square further opens up about his parent’s reaction to his victory and says, “I have had very little time to talk to them in the last 3 months but they are excited to meet me and celebrate this victory together. My mom is the closest companion I have so I am very eager to meet my mom and a few of my friends and all of my family members. My Dad must be so proud of me, I know for sure.”
