Velassaru, Maldives

Whattup guys,

Well aight.. i know its been close to 10 months since my last post, but hey, with Twitter, Facebook and all the spam you get in a day from BlackBerry Messenger, I know ya'll can forgive me. Its been a crazy year so far for Kartel Records, and its all starting to pay off right now. Look out for Sakti, Ila Damiaa, SonaOne and Altimets releases all coming out real soon. We've also got the Made Men compilation dropping which will also feature Richard J, MicBandits, Thaitanium and Dandee. Watch this space.

Recently though, I managed to get away from the KL hustle and grind for a show in, paradise! Thanks to my management YZ International and the wonderful people at Universal/Per AQUUM Retreats, together with Stylustiks, I was invited to perform at Velassaru, Maldives.

I've got to say that I've heard so much about Maldives prior to this trip, but nothing could have prepared me for the beauty that I was about to witness. We got hooked up with the a real 'ballin' villa right above the ocean and I swear to you I jumped into the sea from my balcony, the minute I got up in the morning, EVERYDAY during my stay there. LOL. Here are some shots that we took for ya'll.

The Stylustiks party only happened on the 4th day of our stay, and it was rocking! Big shout out goes out to all the guests that joined in on the fun and also to everyone that came to the island just for the event.

The party was off the hook! Stylustiks was on point as usual..while I was jumping off the podium every 5 seconds to get on the floor with the crowd. Maldives was most definitely a high point in 2010...and the only way it can be topped, is to go again! Hahah...after all its only a 4 hour flight! One Love Velassaru!

August Magazine Men Of The Year 2009

August Magazine recently named me as one of their 'Men Of The Year' for 2009, and together with the other recipients, graced the cover of the December issue. It came as a pleasant surprise when Rubin Khoo of August contacted us to be part of this, but to put smack up front on the cover, I am humbled :) . By recognizing Joe Flizzow, I believe August Magazine is recognizing Malaysian Hip Hop too, so, big ups and thank you for continuing to support our local music industry! Kartello Hello!

30 is the new 20

KL Dragons Vs Brunei Barracudas

We headed into town yesterday to catch the KL Dragons kick off their Asean Basketball League campaign at the MABA Stadium against the Brunei Barracudas. We arrived just as the teams we're warming up and the energy and atmosphere at the venue was pretty wild. A number of corporate figures, celebs and socialites were spotted courtside, all rooting for KL's first professional basketball team. Check out these pics right here.

The teams unofficial hype man, getting the spectators riled up.

KL's Jamal Brown above the rim.

The Brunei team clearly dominated the first three quarters and at one point had a 30 point lead. The fourth quarter was much better though, as KL attempted a comeback and the game ended 76-94 in favour of Brunei.

See you court side on the 31st for our second home game.

Despite the loss, the KL Dragons have much to be proud off and the same goes to the ABL. Its really great to see people coming together, showing their love for their city and this is no doubt a start to a new chapter in Malaysian basketball. Shout outs to team owners Datuk Wira Dani and Mr. Rueben Emir Gnanalingam, ABL chairman Datuk Tony Fernandez and everybody involved in making this happen.

XBerry Party At Sunway Pyramid

Kartello Hello! Whats good peoples? Aight for real this time, I'm back on the mutherloving blog and this time we here to stay. I promise ya'll that I will blog about each and every event/show that Kartel Records will be involved in the future. Real talk.

Now back to the matter at hand, last Saturday, the XBerry Party was held in conjunction with the launch of the 8520 Curve which went on sale for rm888 on that day only.

I got to say that the phone looks pretty tight, I managed to get a closer look as my brother DJ Iman and B Boy Flip copped a couple for themselves. I wont trade it for my Bold though, but I got to say the track pad that replaces the ball might just function better in the long run.

Anyways, I had a blast performing at the event, the sound system sounded fairly good (which can be quite rare in KL ) and my Subang peeps were there to rock it out in the crowd. DJ Iman was with me onstage and Kartel's shining star, SonaOne spit a couple of verses on the last two joints before we wrapped up the show.

Shoutouts to everybody that came through and helped make it a memorable night! Peace! And props to i had to grab that pic man. Thank you!
