Soroush Lashkary (born May 10, 1985 / Persian: سروش لشکری) better known by his stage name Hichkas (Persian: هیچکس, meaning "nobody") is a rap artist from Iran. Despite being one of the most popular hiphop acts in the country, he has never received official permission to release his music on CD. (Most western-style music is banned in the country.)
Soroush Lashkary graduated from Raoof High School in Tehran in 2003. Soon after he started one of the first rap groups based in Tehran called "021" (Tehran's area code).
His first songs were mostly in English and about social problems in Iran. Then he began rapping in Persian because it is easier for him to express his feelings in it. After releasing some songs, Hichkas started to experiment with different styles in rap, and now listeners can hear a different style in each of his songs. Hichkas has also had songs on different subjects like unity in "Baa Ham", treachery in "Pedar Khaandeh", and duets with artists like Saman (Wilson) from Zedbazi in "Vase Har Irani".
Hichkas' track "Tripe Ma" The Way We Are, was produced by one of the earliest composers to mix Persian traditional instruments with Western hip hop beats, Shahin Pajoom. Hichkas' first album, Jangal e Asfalt translated as The Asphalt Jungle, featured 11 new songs further exploring the combination of Persian instruments with Western beats, composed and produced by Iranian hip hop producer, Mahdyar Aghajani. The album also featured British Iranian rapper Reveal from Poisonous Poets on a number of its songs. It was released on iTunes first and then became available to buy from his official website for a limited time.
He created the 021 group and his first album was "The Asphalt Jungle/ Persian:جنگل آسفالت" produced by then 17 year old underground musician Mahdyar Aghajani .
