Utkarsh and Raja take a deep dive on growing up Indian in America, sharing their opposite experiences of being both ashamed and proud of their cultures as children. Raja then talks about her musical collaborations with Iggy Azalea and Gwen Stefani, and Kobe Bryant walking out to her song in his final game. Then Utkarsh deep dives with Raja on how EXACTLY she has built the successful career(spoiler alert: amazing story about Timbaland coming atcha) in the music industry that she has. An open, honest conversation about culture, creativity, bravery and discipline.
