MTV Hustle 2.0 has been won by Abhishek Baisla aka ‘Badmos Chora’, also known as MC Square. Tanishq Singh, widely recognised as Paradox, and Mumbaikar Nihar Hodawadekar, who goes by the name Nazz, were declared the first and second runners-up, respectively.
After the 10-week-long lyrical-rap hustle, Faridabad’s MC Square aka Badmos Chora took home a trophy and a check for Rs. 10 lakh as the winner of MTV Hustle 2.0.
The 10-week, 20-episode rap music-based reality series “Hustle 2.0,” judged by Badshah, along with Squad Bossed — Dee MC, EPR, Dino James, and none other than King — came to an end on Sunday.
Ikka Singh, a well-known rapper, came as a special guest and performed to loud cheers. Along with some moving on-stage confessions from the performers, the night was also packed with a fun rap-style roast of all the competitors.
After winning the title, MC Square was overcome with emotion and stated, “Being a star was my boyhood ambition, and now I can proudly tell my mother that her son is, in fact, one.”
“The love and encouragement I got from Badshah sir and my fellow contestants added up to be what motivated me the most.” “I thank the rap community and all of its ardent supporters for my success,” added MC Square.
Following MC Square’s victory, Judge Badshah stated that MTV Hustle 2.0 had “raised the bar for rap music and reality television by mixing raw talent and professional grooming in one area.” “Each finalist has amazed me with their talent and stories week after week,” he continued. Badshah further said that “I couldn’t be happier for Abhishek since he has unquestionably emerged as the emerging rap voice that the Indian hip-hop industry was looking for.”
