A new Constitution was promulgated in Nepal on 20 September 2015. It potentially ended a saga that began shortly after the end of the Maoist war in 2006. But some ethnic groups remained deeply unhappy with the new constitution - and its birth-pangs had been violent. At least 50 people have died in clashes linked to the constitution in Nepal. Neupane is trying to reflect the political situation and clash on his new song.

One of the promising rap artists from Nepal 20 years old Newpane has released 20 songs including Sunana, Aaideuna, Maya Basa & U Got Me. Neupane is also known as Lil’ G by his stage name. He has been influenced by Girish Khatiwada, the godfather of Nepali rap industry.

I got influenced by rap after listening to Girish khatiwada's rap songs.' Prakash recalls how he began rapping and how writing a rhyme.
