Point Blanc - Ipoh Mali feat. Jaclyn Victor

Ipoh Mali, a term in Malay that means "from Ipoh", is Point Blanc's first single from his newest solo album, Straight to the Point, featuring the Malaysian Idol winner (2004), Jaclyn Victor. This song narrates the turning point in his life when he discovered his calling as a rapper at 16 years old and it describes his trials and tribulations he had to go through to establish his career as a rapper in Malaysia. Also mentioned in this song are many famous landmarks in his hometown, Ipoh, which is also the location where the music video was shot in.

Note: The video production reminds me of One Blood by The Game. You can tell that Point Blanc is a Game fan :)

And just for the heck of are some other Ipoh mali celebrities that you may be also familiar with:
