Development[edit]

This will be a revolution.

— Nucleya [6]

MTV Hustle is the need of the hour, giving an edge to the current rap rage in the country. It's not a reality show, it's a real show- right from the lyrics, beats and the compositions, everything is original and created by them.

— Raftaar [7]
