Bilal Shaikh (born November 13, 1995) was born in Bengaluru, Karnataka, India. He is an Indian rapper, singer, songwriter, and live performer. He is professionally known as Emiway Bantai. Emiway Bantai is a stage name that he chose, which combines the names of two famous American rappers, Eminem and Lil Wayne, with "Emi" coming from Eminem and "Way" from Lil Wayne.

He gained fame with his hit song "Asli Hip Hop" in the popular Bollywood movie "Gully Boy" (2019). Emiway Bantai began his career with his debut song "Glint Lock" featuring Minta in 2013. His early days as a rapper were challenging, and he even worked as a helper at the 'Hard Rock Cafe' to make ends meet. Despite coming from a humble background, he never took financial support from his family to pursue his passion for rap music. Initially, Bantai rapped in English, but his father advised him to switch to Hindi to reach a wider audience. In 2014, he released his first Hindi rap song "Aur Bantai," which became an instant hit. He also auditioned for the popular Indian reality show "India's Got Talent" before gaining widespread recognition.

In 2016, Emiway Bantai won the Radio City Freedom Award at 'Hard Rock Cafe,' where he had previously worked as a helper. However, it was in 2017 that he received his big break with the song "#Sadak," which he recorded in collaboration with the rapper Raftaar. In 2018, he got into a diss war with Raftaar after the latter took a dig at him, saying that rappers like him could not earn money. In response, Emiway released his diss track titled "Samajh Mein Aaya Kya," to which Raftaar responded with "Sheikh Chilli." Emiway then released another song titled "Giraftaar" as a response to Raftaar.

Emiway Bantai's music is known for its unique blend of Hindi and English lyrics, hard-hitting beats, and catchy tunes that resonate with the Indian youth. He has since become a household name in the Indian rap scene and has won the hearts of millions of fans worldwide with his music.
