Soroush Lashkary (Persian: Sorūŝ Laŝkari - سروش لشکری; born May 9, 1985) better known by his stage name Hichkas (Persian: Hiĉkas - هیچکس; meaning "No One") is an Iranian rapper from Tehran. Hichkas is considered as one of pioneers of Iranian hip hop and is nicknamed "Godfather of Persian Rap" (Persian پدرخوانده رپ فارسی pedarkhande rap-e farsi).
Hichkas is known for membership in a supergroup called 021 (the area code for Tehran). In about 2003, he started his work in Vanak participating in Persian free-styling with people who also cover some English language songs in the Rap battle. Hichkas gained attention when he began rapping in Persian about social problems and the younger generation in Iran. Hichkas is commonly referred to as the Godfather of Iranian rap.
