One of Malaysia's very own hip-hop series "16 Baris" on YouTube recently caught the attention of rap legend, Snoop Dogg.

The hip-hop series have mainly been shot in a barbershop owned by Joe himself, located in Subang Jaya. The unsigned rappers will be invited to the barbershop to freestyle in a cypher and spit 16 bars to show off their talent.

The popularity of the show gained a lot of attention across the world, having spin-offs made in locales like Australia, New Zealand, and Thailand. Surprisingly, the show even managed to catch the attention of iconic rapper, Snoop Dogg! On 15 September, Snoop shouted out the show's profile and linked an old segment of the show on his Instagram Story, captioned "dope show with unsigned international rappers".

Shortly after, Joe Flizzow uploaded a teaser on his IG story of a conference call happening that involved himself, a few other leading members of DefJam Southeast Asia, and Snoop Dogg. In another separate story, Joe thanked Snoop for giving the show a seal of approval, and called the shout out the "ultimate co-sign".
