Adhi aka Adhithya Ramachandran Venkatapathy is the founder of Hiphop Tamizha musical duo and released several albums along with his partner, R. Jeeva. Let’s check out more about Adhi’s personal, as well as professional life, and other interesting facts.

He shot to fame with the success of the track ‘Club Le Mabbu Le,’ composed by him along with his partner. He developed his interest in hip-hop after seeing Michael Jackson’s single track ‘Jam.’ He wrote his own rap songs and started uploading them on the internet. After getting positive responses from people, he created his account on YouTube under the name of ‘Hiphop Tamizha’ and used the photo of the Tamil poet Subramania Bharati to hide his work from his parents. Initially, Adhi’s father did not support him in his musical career and it was only after Adhi’s father saw his work that he was convinced.

எனக்கு ஆதி அண்ணாவின் அனைத்து பாடல்களும் பிடிக்கும்.குறிப்பாக clubla mubbla பாடலும், takkaru takkaru பாடலும் மிகவும் பிடிக்கும். அது மிகவும் அர்த்தமுள்ளதாகவும், “தமிழன்” என்பதில் பெருமை கொள்ளும் விதமாகவும் இருக்கிறது.நானும் என் தோழியும் அவரது மிகப்பெரிய ரசிகைகள்.. தமிழில் கருத்து பதிவேற்றியதில் மகிழ்ச்சி அடைகிறேன்.. தமிழ் வாழ்க…நன்றி…
