Joe Flizzow aka The President, born in Kuala Lumpur on 16 October 1979, Malaysia's International Hip Hop Ambassador, one half of the internationally renowned Malaysian hip hop duo, Too Phat - the first Malaysian Hip Hop act to impact upon the Malaysian music scene, founder and CEO of Kartel Records.
As Too Phat, their multi-platinum albums have won numerous awards locally as well as achieving recognitions from MTV Asia and Channel V. Asian collaborations with pop acts from Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Australia, Sweden, Canada and United States have allowed for an all access pass in Asia. Regional appearances and performances are reflective in their album sales with over half a million records sold to date. As Malaysia's ambassador of Hip Hop few are not aware of Joe Flizzow's contribution especially with credentials that list international artists like Linkin Park, Black Eyed Peas and Kanye West as the few he's performed for.
As an individual Joe Flizzow arguably the nicest Malaysian MC to ever grip a mic, is a talented writer, lyricist and producer. Forever pushing his boundaries and artistry into new areas and development; a pattern familiar since the late 90's, where he revolutionised the Malaysian underground Hip Hip scene and forced the music industry to recognise it as a serious music genre. Hip Hop had arrived in Malaysia.
Strong in beliefs and culture, Joe Flizzow proudly wears 'KL' on his head - introducing yet another nation pride - The KL cap, originally a Too Phat merchandise that was launched in 2005 and now produced and distributed wholly under his own clothing label State Of Mine Caps, Kartel Clothing.
After 10 years as member of Too Phat, Flizzow is now carving a career as a solo artist with his first album, President (2008)
