Fashion Collection: What first got you into music?
Kaky Thousand: I’ve always been drawn to rap and hip-hop music, partly because I saw my older brother, Asif Balli, rapping. I used to get inspired seeing him and then used to practice things on my own. That’s how my brother once spotted me rapping, corrected my errors, and offered me a spot on one of his singles.

Kaky Thousand: This is an intriguing story, to say the least. Waqas Baloch is my real name. Allow me to put things more straightforwardly. My followers gave me the nickname “Kaky” which means “Child,” and my brother Asif Balli added “Thousand” to the name. The definition of Kaky Thou$and is a child with exceptional qualities.
Fashion Collection: Which Bollywood Or Hollywood Artist Would You Like To Collaborate with in the future?
Kaky Thousand: In terms of Bollywood, I’d love to collaborate with Emiway, Divine, and Yo Yo Honey Singh. when it comes to Hollywood, Busta Rhymes, the Game, and Hopsin are on my wish list.
Fashion Collection: What is the best advice you’ve been given?
Kaky Thousand: My father provided me with the best of advice. He once told me that no one can stop people who are motivated and work hard to achieve their goals from reaching the pinnacle of achievement. These words have always motivated me and will continue to do so.
Fashion Collection: How would you describe the music that you typically create?
Kaky Thousand: My songs and music are based on reality. Things and life experiences I’ve had, the good and bad of society, our mythology, cultural traditions, and everything else that strikes me as unusual, I attempt to incorporate that into my songs.
Fashion Collection: What would you be doing right now, if the music wasn’t your career?
Kaky Thousand: If I hadn’t been a rapper, I’m sure I would have worked in the music industry in some capacity. Maybe I would have been a music producer or a director, as these are the two professions that fascinate me the most, and you never know, you might see me directing productions in the future.
Fashion Collection: How did your life change when you became famous?
Kaky Thousand: My life hasn’t altered much since I became famous; it’s simply that people now appreciate me more. One thing I’d like to point out is that fame comes with a lot of responsibilities. There are individuals who admire your work, and there are those who despise it. All one should be concerned about and focused on is their work, because that is what matters in the end.
Fashion Collection: Where do you see the Hip-Hop Industry in Pakistan in the next 5 years?
Kaky Thousand: In the next five years, I don’t see the hip-hop industry in Pakistan changing. The Pakistani entertainment business and the public have yet to discover the hip-hop sector. We don’t expect much change given the current scenario and lack of support.
Fashion Collection: If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
Kaky Thousand: I want to revolutionize the entire industry. Its aesthetics and ethics, I’m working on it. I’m still doing everything I can to help bring about change. I want to be a representative of Pakistan in the international community. As I previously stated, there is still much more to learn about the Pakistani music industry.
