Bangladeshi hip hop is commonly a genre of music and culture that covers a variety of styles of hip hop music developed in Bangladesh. Bangladeshi hip hop is heavily influenced heavily from American hip hop, and started in early 2000. In recent years, local Bangladeshi hip hop artists have begun to emerge in underground scenes in large cities such as Dhaka, Sylhet, and Chittagong; the lyrical expression of cultural identity, with lyrics addressing Bangladesh's political and social problems, make hip hop a popular and growing genre. Featured artists awarded in the 2015 Bangladeshi Hip Hopping Music Awards were Lil B, among others.[1][2][3][4]
