Young Stunners won the hearts of the youth with popular hits like Burger-e-Karachi, Laam se Chaura, Maila Majnu, and many more.
The boys earned name and fame in a very short span of time. However, when the rappers announced that they are parting ways, social media felt the tremors.
YouTuber, Irfan Junejo ( who also happens to be a fan of the rap band ) stepped in and told the boys to solve their problems with a battle – but of another type! He proposed a rap battle to settle things once and for all.
Pepsi Black took on the initiative to bring together the young influencers for the ultimate rap challenge in which Irfan Junejo collaborated with the Young Stunners for the first time on-screen.
The campaign video starts with some shots of the Kot Lakhpat Railway Station, Lahore and we catch a glimpse of Junejo gulping down some Pepsi Black to start the battle.
The Young Stunners then take each other on face-to-face. Talha Anjum starts off by saying ‘Tu sure hai? Tu karna chahta hai battle rap! Kha jata rappers mein, need me a Pepsi Black, back to back yeh train unstoppable, rap ek phenomena and mein hun phenomenal’.
To this, Younus replies; ‘One in a billion koi mukabla nahin janta hai, bache yeh lafz nahi chanta hai, tera har ek banda mujhe janta hai, legend manta hai, tu bhalay karak logon ke liye, andar se dhancha hai’.
Together the boys called out all the rappers in Pakistan who think they have what it takes to be the next sensation to express their stories through their own words. The challenge is for everyone, from the youth to the ladies.
Pepsi has been one of the leading brands in Pakistan to support music and Pepsi Black now provides a platform for talented individuals to make a name for themselves.
The winner of #PepsiRapBattle will get a music video collaboration worth Rs. 1,000,000.
