Hichkas aka Soroush Lashkary was born on 9th May 1985 in Tehran. Hichkas has always referred to himself as the “Godfather” of Persian HipHop, he has always maintained that he was the one who accepted the responsibility of taking care of Persian HipHop.
Hichkas began by recording raps on his home computer over downloaded HipHop instrumentals and posting them online. While the word is often overused, Hichkas is one who can truly be classified as a trendsetter, originator and major influence in not only bringing HipHop to the attention of the general public in Iran but also as one who worked with a large number of up and coming rappers, ghostwriting for some and providing advice and guidance to others. Hichkas was the first rapper to coin the phrase “021” as a slang word for the city of Tehran pertaining to its phone code.
