Toronto based rapper Rajeev aka "Tha Prophecy" is in Chennai today for the shoot of the upcoming Tamil comedy Thillu Mullu 2 for which Yuvan Shankar Raja has produced the songs. The album features 5 tracks and 2 remixes, one of which features Tha Prophecy.
It was but a few months ago that "Tha Prophecy" was propelled to the Kollywood music scene after the release of Adhi Bhagavan in which he rapped the theme song. Today he got on his social media…

No one quite like him. My brother and inspiration @itsyuvan #thillumullu #musicvideoshoot #legendaryproject #u1 #MSV #thaprophecy #dreambelieveachieve

Thillu Mullu 2 stars Prakash Raj and is a remake of the Rajinikanth starrer by the same name, which itself was a remake of the Hindi Film Gol Maal.
