Time Wastin’

Named the Queen of South East Asian hip-hop & Reggae by Vice / Noisey, MAS1A is an artist that inspires fans wherever she grabs a mic. Her hit, ‘Warrior Tongue’, was sampled by iconic American DJ/Producer Bass Nectar for the title track of Fast and Furious 8. This is not the first major success for this Singaporean Warrior, having ‘savagely defeated’ her opponent at the Chang Urban Pulse Rap Battle in 3 different languages of English, Chinese, and French.

MAS1A’s career as a hip-hop artist is extensive: She became the first female to be nominated for an MTV Canada award, has worked with the likes of Dr Dre, Pharrell Williams, The Game, RZA (Wu-Tang Clan) and John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and honored by VIMA SE Asian Music Awards for Best Female Artist. She brings Ragga flavor into her music influenced by time spent in Jamaica working at Bob Marley’s Tuff Gong Studios and collaborating with Reggae legends such as Sizzle, Lady Saw and Dubtonic Kru.

MAS1A is also the founder and creative director of Singapura Dub Club, the premier island culture events company in Singapore and a hub bringing Asian Ragga flavors to the rest of the world. She is currently working on her 4th studio album, executive produced by Major Lazer’s engineer, Richie Beretta, which is slated for a Fall 2018 release!
