The Hip-Hop Kings Festival Selangor at Playspace LIVE is an event that aims to broaden links between hip-hop culture in Asia and America. Sponsored by Boston clothing brands The Citi Team and Vets Wear, the Festival also aims to spread American urban culture and fashion to fans in Asia. The Festival’s main attraction is N.B.S. (Natural Born Spitters) , a rap duo from Boston comprised of cousins E’Flash and Vee Knuckles. N.B.S. is known worldwide for their classic boom bap style of rap, staying true to the essence of real rap. Their latest album, “Trapped In America”, received international attention and was featured prominently in The Source Magazine and The Boston Globe. The duo has toured all over the world including the U.S, U.K, France, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, China, Japan, Colombia and Ghana. N.B.S. has toured with legendary names in Hip-Hop such as ONYX and Mobb Deep.
Alongside N.B.S. is up and coming hip-hop artist Jackson Turnerfrom New York City. Jackson Turner’s style of rap leans towards Old School hip-hop that originated in his hometown of New York. Jackson Turner’s newest album, “The Foundation” managed to reach the Top 10 of the national hip-hop charts for CMJ Radio in the U.S, and Earshot Radio in Canada. In his young career, Turner has already performed in the U.S, South Africa, China and Japan.
Representing Malaysia in hip-hop is Lawalah Familia that features members from all over the country. LawaLah Familia is a crew that consists of 19 rappers, 2 R&B Singers, 1 DJ, a mural artist and a videographer. The group has been making big waves over the past few years in the Malaysian music scene with their high energy performances, which has gained them a loyal fanbase. Their music videos have been collectively amassing millions of views on YouTube. N.B.S. and LawaLah Familia are working on a joint EP project, which will further strengthen the connection between Malaysian and American hip-hop movements.
We are also proud to have Malaysia’s very own Jin Hackman on the Hip-Hop Kings Festival’s line up. Jin Hackman has been nurturing and championing Malaysian rap talent for many years now with the hip-hop community project Raising The Bar. His most popular single to date, “Banana”, accompanied by a hilarious music video raised Jin’s spotlight tremendously with plenty of radio airplay and press coverage. He has been performing actively including major festivals such as Urbanscapes, Good Vibes Fest and H-Artistry.
