Bio

If there was any doubts as to MALi JO$E’s status as the incumbent prince of
Australian hip hop, 2020 has put them up in smoke.
Promising big things in a year that’s forced many into hiding, the 18-year-old
Perth product unleashed a beast with his latest single, Ladybird.
Packed tight with an equally fire video clip premiered by tastemaker youth
broadcaster triple j Unearthed, MALi JO$E is very quickly throwing all reference
points aside to cast his own, ominous shadow on the global alt-hip hop scene.
The release of Ladybird came with a sold out headline show (his first ever), along
with ranking in the Top 50 Most Played Unearthed Artists, and capped off with a
signing to revered Aus’ agency NICHE for bookings.
In his brief time on the scene, MALi has already demonstrated a penchant for
moving fast, and is already looking forward to his next single, Portals.
A bouncy, bass-fuelled affair, MALi is backed once again by production partner-
in-crime OJC43, laying the foundations for a rolling, forceful flow like no other.
If 2020 was the emergence of an exciting new voice in Australian hip hop in
MALi JO$E, 2021 promises to be the year a new king takes his crown.

MALi keeps on getting it! This new track is a showcase for the young blood's versatile bars and he doesn't disappoint.
