As Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur is a bustling cultural paradise and after dark is when the city really shines. The metropolis’s own hip-hop star Joe Flizzow has been part of the late night scene for years, however, he still finds it to be far from predictable. One night he may be performing his hip-hop hits like “Sampai Jadi,” partying with his cast members after filming the movie Pekak, or laying low at a local jazz music joint.
To get a taste of the vibrant city’s nightlife energy, we hopped in W Kuala Lumpur‘s tricked-out Mini with the rapper and visited some of the city’s best and most unexpected spots and heard some exclusive beats along the way.
