Like most extraordinary rappers whoever made it big, Vishnu MS, now famed as ThirumaLi—meaning honesty and greatness—has come from the suburbs. The young boy, who dropped out of college to make music, is now being pitted to break away Malayalam rap from the margins and make it go mainstream. A cornerstone of the Southern heat, ThirumaLi started rapping close to eight years ago at a time when Malayalam Rap was almost obsolete. ThirumaLi was one of the pioneers to spread head its growth in Kerala.

On the occasion of the release of his track, ThirumaLi said, “Not too long ago, I was on the streets of Kottayam, rolling off words that came from a deep space within, searching for an identity. With every release, I feel extremely overjoyed and gain confidence within myself. ‘ALIYA’ is a song that I created to celebrate friendship. We all need friends that we trust, rely upon during tough times and enjoy during the happy days. That is exactly what I want to empower through this song.”
