Made In Singapore hip-hop is now an intense, undeniable presence in local consciousness. It’s an esteemed, long-fought-for lineage that includes foundation-builders and scene-stealing newcomers alike. Team Highness honcho Rauzan Rahman is acutely aware of the importance and power of both the standard-setting old school and the emergent new school and in the rousing, posse cut “65 Dante Remix”, he enlists the community’s OG crew Elementical Fury as well as hometown legend Ollie’ Des and Mr. Boo, one of the most fervent activists of Singaporean hip-hop.
Part history lesson and part manifesto, it’s a back-to-basics banger of dense bars, imagistic lyricism and pure, heat-seeking firepower. Its companion music video, directed by Rauzan and shot by Nash and ZeroTheMemoryThief is likewise hard-hitting.
