Due to the complicated nature of doing music Iran,[2] there are no reliable records about it's premier artists in hand for the public. Records about the originating artist(s) or group(s), their songs and points of view. There are a few of known independent active artists from that era in Tehran. By the passing the post war era (90's decade) and parallel with rush of the computers and accordingly the soft-synths, the first groups of people who were ignited by listening to western music used such pattern and to use Persian language as the base-medium. First Tehran-based rap clan to mention was called 021, they were known to be the premier artists of this genre.[3]

Perhaps Hichkas is one of the first prolific Persian rappers who started rapping in Tehran,[4] Iran, He was also member of a Tehran-based rap clan called 021. His first Album Asphalt Jungle (Persianجنگل آسفالت Jangale Asfalt) is one of the first rap albums in Iran and in Persian language and brought much recognition to his name in Iranian communities.[4] From notable expatriate artists we can point to Deev as an Iranian rapper who lives in America and his songs considered as good example for first first Persian rap's.
