Live and Loud KL - Turn on the Pop

Sorry we haven't been updating lately! This is just brief post before we fill you in on more things from Kartel and Joe Flizzow. From Live and Loud KL-Turn on the Pop, 1st Dec 2007 where Joe performs to show support for the event which was organised by friend Reymee Hussein (former member of Innuendo). Joe was the only hip hop act in the local repoirtoire that included Noryn Aziz, Annuar Zain, Jac Victor, Lah, Mode and Azan. The night started with the local acts and was followed by Shaggy and Whitney Housten.

DJ T-Bone and Big E were on the decks, while Phlowtron's Poi and the B-boys from SG fronted the stage with Joe. The KL b-boy crew weren't able to join this time round as they were tied up with a local breakdance competition that happened on the same day. Unfortunately for the boys however, they couldn't do much on the stage due to the wet floor as it rained.

Joe performed several tracks from his old Too Phat albums among them Alhamdullilah, KL, Mariposa and Get it done - Force 1. He was surprised and pleased to see that some in the crowd already knew the Air Force 1 song too!

The crowd was good and knew most of the songs

Joe Flizzow's KL caps in News Straits Times, Malaysia

We're happy to share with you an article on Joe and his KL caps featured today (31 Oct 2007) in News Straits Times' Life&Times section page 66.

SYIDA LIZTA AMIRUL IHSAN discovers hip-hop star Joe Flizzow has KL on his head.

TOO Phat’s Joe Flizzow is a fan of baseball caps. No surprise there. He’s into hip-hop and those caps are hip-hoppers’ staple. So years ago he would wear caps emblazoned with NY and LA, after the American baseball teams New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers.Somewhere along the line, he thought, “Hey, why am I wearing the initials of a city that is not home?” And that sparked the idea of his successful KL Cap two years ago.

"Love your city", State of Mine

Last August we wrote a short post on Joe Flizzow's KL Cap. (Read here). We told you to expect more from him...well two months on, we're proud to present you.... STATE OF MINE CAPS by Kartel Clothing. Read the official press release below.

"Love Your City", State of Mine

This is the tagline for Joe Flizzow’s new brand under the Kartel Clothing called ‘State of Mine Caps’.

It all started with the birth of the KL cap, back in 2005. A cap to commemorate Joe’s love for the city and the country. It was a cap that was only the beginning of Joe Flizzow’s idea of unity. The KL cap represented pride “Love your city, represent where you’re from, be proud of who you are”. The KL cap was just the start to a bigger picture.

Two years on, the KL cap can be seen everywhere. Worn by locals and foreigners alike, preferred now by youngsters over the ‘LA’,‘NY’ caps usually worn as fashion. The KL cap has made its point.

Joe Flizzow presents the second phase to his vision under one brand called ‘State of Mine’. A vision that drives home the idea that no matter what race, background or age, you are, you can stand united with a cap. Love where you come from, be proud of your country and show it by holding your head up high and wearing it.

“Love your city”, State of mine

Special edition KL caps

To launch ‘State Of Mine’, special editions of the KL cap have been designed complete with signatures of authenticity. In colors, black and white, the special edition KL caps are trimmed in gold with the map of Malaysia on the sides of the cap. There are three hologram stickers for each cap, with two labels on the inset to tastefully mark its authenticity.

Keeping State of Mind Caps Authentic – It’s all in the details
An authentic State of Mind cap comes with three hologram stickers, customized Kartel Clothing labels on the inset. All caps are produced exclusively for Kartel Clothing of the highest quality as Joe Flizzow would not having anything less. State of Mine caps are legally protected from “unauthorized reproductions”. Support original Malaysian products.

KL Limited editions are available in 5 sizes – 6 ¾, 7, 7 ½ and 7 5/8

‘State of Mine’ caps are available at Echo Park, Tropicana Life, Extreme branches in the Klang Valley as well as online at More sales points will be announced in the near future.

Giving back
This is a community project as much as it is entrepreneurial. Joe believes in giving back to his community, knowing full well, that without the support of the people of Malaysia, his success in his music endeavors (Too Phat) would have never been possible. As he has seen the nation support him as a young man, Joe intends to “give back”, by donating part of the sales of ‘State of Mine’ caps to orphanages or youth organizations to help the younger generation grow as he did.

The idea is that with every cap purchased from ‘State of Mine’, part of the proceeds will be donated to aid children of Malaysia. Currently, ‘State of Mine’ is working with the necessary organizations to make this happen.

From Aceh With Love, Joe Flizzow of Too Phat

We've been saying Joe's been real busy lately. Just cuz you don't see him in the local news and events, it doesn't mean he's not been doing anything!

"From Aceh with Love, Joe Flizzow of Too Phat" was a huge success. Check out these links for more info:

Joe Flizzow in's "Table For Four"

Awhile ago Joe Flizzow was invited by to have dinner with them for their regular article called "Table For Four". In Table For Four, the writer, Erman Akinci invites three local celebrities, personalities or friends to have to have dinner with him and talk about subjects of interest to him. So, Erman Akinci invited singer Camelia, DJ Gabriel and Joe Flizzow to talk about the Malaysian music scene. This is was was said about Joe,

"I found not only a passionate artist but also a savvy businessman to boot. His
knowledge of his art & his craft really impressed me along with his deep insight into the challenges of merging hip hop culture with mainstream Malaysian culture. What he said to me towards the end really made an impression. Joe: One thing I love about rapping...hip hop is more, it has the ability to really send a message. He can say that again."

Flanegan Bainon photograph's Joe Flizzow in Australia

Joe's not back yet from Melbourne, but we've got some pictures for you through our new friend/photographer Flanegan Bainon. He's a 1st year photography student at RMIT, who wrote to us last week to help him contact Joe in Australia to ask if he could photograph Joe. Within a couple of days, Flanegan got his hook up with the Kartel crew in Oz! Joe then invited him to a function held for university students in Melbourne where he was able to document the night. The party was on a boat. You can read Flanegan's personal account of the whole thing at his own blog Joe Flizzow Kartel-o Shuffling Melbourne yo~. Flanegan if you're reading this, best of luck at university and don't forget to call us whenever you come back to Malaysia!

We've posted some additional pictures sent to us. All by Flanegan Bainon.
