21 December 2018

We did it for the culture.

At Culture Cartel, Singapore's newest street culture festival, the new era of Yo! MTV Raps was unleashed upon an unsuspecting crowd. On December 2nd some friends dropped in for a pop-up performance to showcase the power and grit of Asian hip-hop.

Dynamic Singaporean duo Fariz Jabba and Yung Raja turned up for a collaborative performance with 'More Better', while flexing their individual chops with 'Ape Sia' and 'Mustafa' respectively.
