Rapper and musician Anik Khan was born in Dhaka and grew up in Queens, New York. He raps about being Muslim, an immigrant, and his father, who was a freedom fighter in Bangladesh before they moved to the US. Last month his single “Too Late Now” reached the top of the stack of Spotify’s Top Viral Hits.
In Browntown’s first episode, Anik talks about the neighborhood he grew up in, his favorite Bollywood actress Kajol, and his music.
