Febin Joseph's new rap 'Avasaram Tharu' has created quite a splash on social media. Febin, popularly known as Fejo, released the song on Friday and it has clocked close to 50,000 views.
Born in Vyttila in Kochi, Fejo is a Malayalam rapper who has been trying to get the art form into the music of Mollywood.
âAvasaram Tharu' or 'Give me an opportunity' features Fejo as a young man in search for opportunities in the film industry. He meets with filmmakers, producers and film professionals for a chance to make it big. Along the way, he has his friends who express their support for him.
The lines âEnte peru Fejo, njan Mallu rapper ketto! Ente CV pidi engane undenn intro?" express his attempts to impress others with his CV and introduce him to the viewers.

While Bollywood has a fair share of rappers, thanks to artistes like Honey Sing, Badshah, Raftaar and the like, Malayalam cinema is still to be taken in by this form of music. A few well-known south Indian rappers include Blaaze, Chandan Shetty, and Big Vitz.
Some other Malayalam rap songs which have released previously are 'Thep Girl', 'Poyi Pani Nokkedi' and so on.
Fejo has previously done songs such as 'Koottilitta Thatha', 'Local Idi', 'Social Media Pennu' and the like. These songs have several words which are from local dialects and are therefore catchy.
'Avasaram Tharu' ends on a positive note, saying that whatever the circumstances might be, one should have faith and that talent will make the person succeed one day.
