Ranveer Singh starrer Gully Boy has been making a lot of speculations ever since the release of its trailer as well as songs. The film is going to be released in theatres all over India on February 14, 2019. The film's story focuses on the character of Ranveer Singh, a rapper who resides in the slums of Mumbai and dreams of making it big as a rapper some day. Although Gully Boy is not a biopic, as revealed by the film's director Zoya Akhtar, it is however, loosely based on the real - life stories of Indian rappers Divine and Naezy. Both Divine and Naezy belong to a completely different genre of underground young rappers who use the medium of desi rap in order to highlight various societal causes and issues. 

Vivian Fernandes, who is better known by his stage name Divine became popular with his single Yeh Mera Bombay which became quite a craze among the music lovers in the year 2011. His single also received the best video of the year award in the year 2014 by Rolling Stone India. He soon released another song Mere Gully Mein in collaboration with Sony Music India which was released in April 2015. This song also featured Naved Sheikh who is better known by his stage name Naezy. Divine later collaborated with Nucleya for the single Jungle Raja which won the Best EDM track of the year 2015 in the GIMA Awards. He also did another song named Scene Kya Hai which too became quite popular. He has composed the song Paintra for the film Mukkabaz. Moreover, he is the first Indian artist to have an Apple Music release.

Naezy became quite popular with his On Air With AIB song named Tragedy Mein Comedy Hai. His first project named Aafat happened to be a DIY video where he talked about during the '70s. Raaste Kathin is another single by Naezy where he talks about the prevalent corruption in India. Naezy started rapping with a band named The Schizophrenics who are basically into the hip hop arena. Divine and Naezy belong to the cetegory of those desi rappers who are able to rise to fame through their hard work and talent.
