Raga expresses, “To me, ‘Midtown Madness’ is an EP that depicts the crazy street life that I have seen around me. A memoir of what many around me see as entertainment and reclaiming power in their lives. I am not glorifying the lifestyle but hoping that people use my music to channel their rage instead of truly exercising this lifestyle. I am sure people from across the world will resonate with it because there is a version of this life around them. I am really happy to see the initial reactions of the listeners and I can’t wait for them to watch the music video which will be out soon!”.
