The video also features cameos from fellow Malaysian rappers Stylomannavan, Psychomantra, SonaOne, Zamaera, Dan $hiv and more.

Macha dei! The fly Tamilan reppin’ all the OGs / Pushin’ big weight, superfly, low-key / Makin’ big panum panum for their families / Got bana-bana-banana clips for all their enemies,” Syze raps.
