MTV Meets: Get to know our vibrant cast of rappers from Yo! MTV Raps

13 June 2018

On Yo! MTV Raps, we've assembled an awesome range of promising and established artists in Asian hip-hop — and they have lots to show off, from stylish live performances and fiery freestyles to engaging conversations about the culture.

But sometimes you can know artists best through the most random facts, and these guys come with many, like how:

  • Fariz Jabba, swaggering Singaporean MC, was once an inconspicuous security guard
  • Joe Flizzow, towering Malaysian veteran, walked out of a waitering job 15 minutes into his first day
  • Young Lex, dedicated to his obsession with Angelina Jolie, has a prominent tattoo of her face on his body
  • Kidd Santhe, dedicated to his obsession with Milo, drinks it every day (and would swim in it if he could).

There's so much more, like their go-to phrase, their spirit animal, and even their favourite ice-cream flavour. Vibe with them, along with SonaOne, ZamaeraTwopee Southside, G2, DJ Biggie, and Airliftz in our MTV Meets special below:

Yo! MTV Raps premieres Tuesday, June 19 at 10:00pm (SG/MY), 9:00pm (WIB) right after the encore broadcast of the MTV Movie & TV Awards!

Catch the encore on Sunday, June 24 at 5:30pm (SG), 6:30pm (MY), 4:30pm (WIB)
