Back to Roots

Since the video’s launch earlier this year, it has been aired on VH1 where although it was initially intended to run for only 10 days on VH1 India Rules, it is still aired to date, three months later on VH1 Hit Factory.

The ‘Hip Hop [Never Be The Same]video goes on air on MTV this Friday at 8.30 PM on MTV Roots program.
