Badari  — Dream Journal.

When Badari, formerly and also known as B.A.D, was a mere lad at 18 in 2011, he released his debut underground mixtape/demo CD entitled From Start to Finish.

It caught the attention of several big names in the music industry, such as the likes of Young Money boss Lil Wayne and RZA of Wu-Tang Clan fame.

After a long hiatus from music, the Los Angeles-based hip-hop/pop artist born in Bangalore, India, is back with his recently released debut five-track EP called Dream Journal

A trippy musical experience into his dream world, with messages of pain and hope mixed in, Badari said, “Dream Journal is an adventure through my dreams as told by me. It’s like anyone’s dream diary; always an interesting artistic experience.”



My favorite tune off Dream Journal is the first song, Things I See in My Dreams — a nice blend of pop and hip-hop, with a wonderful vocal hook, This is, in my opinion, the type of track that could receive decent radio air time. 

Building off of his lyrical prowess, the song Ocean demonstrates Badari’s ability to flow and rhyme, with another smooth vocal hook. 

The Day Before Tomorrow beckons the sounds of rappers G Eazy and Mac Miller, with its steady, relentless beat and Badari’s effortless rapping style. 

A veteran of mixtapes, Badari’s second project was Uncaged, downloaded over 50,000 times on popular music hosting site datPiff and it redefined the mixtape game as it pertains to full length original musical pieces released in such a manner.

Again, a year later, Badari released his third mixtape, A Journey Beyond, which also garnered a solid measure of fan support and attention.

An up-and-coming artist, without a doubt, follow Badari on Instagram and Twitter for all of his latest news.
