“We’re now known as the land of rapes. But did you ever wonder how this took shape?”

That’s just one of the lines from a provocative new rap video that’s making headlines around the world.

Mumbai-based rap duo BomBaebs, which includes artist Uppekha Jain and TV host Pankhuri Awasthi, released a spoken-word piece on YouTube last week called “Rap Against Rape,” and the video has already been viewed nearly 500,000 times as of Monday afternoon.
