Just stumbled into the country or woken up from a long coma? You could read the newspapers, try to catch up on YouTube clips… or listen to Jin Hackman’s Rap Up 2012. The Malaysian rapper and performer has spent the last month reflecting on the year gone by and summarised it neatly in a six minute song. It’s catchy too.

Rap Up 2012 covers everything from news events like Bersih 3.0 and the “Bright Future” defence to local music, comedy and celebrity scandal. Our brothers at Popteevee’s That Effing Show get a mention too. Jinius, we applaud you for your public service work on this Federal Territory Day. You can hear the whole thing (and read the lyrics) here!
