Soroush Lashkary (Persian: Sorūŝ Laŝkari - سروش لشکری‎; born May 9, 1985) better known by his stage name Hichkas (Persian: Hiĉkas - هیچکس‎; meaning "No One")[2] is an Iranian rapper from Tehran.[3] Hichkas is considered as one of pioneers of Iranian hip hop and is nicknamed "Godfather of Persian Rap".[4][5]

Hichkas is known for membership in a supergroup called 021 (the area code for Tehran).[5][6] 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.[5] Hichkas gained attention when he began rapping in Persian about social problems and the younger generation in Iran.[5] Hichkas is commonly referred to as the Godfather of Iranian rap.[7]

Hichkas has collaborated with a number of International hip hop artists including the legendary American hip hop artist Kool G Rap.[8][9]
