Kidd Santhe’s recently released single ‘Elak Elak’ sees the bilingual rapper going full Bahasa (well, almost), flexing his local street slang like a pro #dak2wicet. Like his previous tracks, amidst the hip hop trope of confrontational braggadocio is Kidd’s lyrical leitmotif; a sort of subversion of machismo with a humbling down of his own ego (“Korang ingat korang siapa? [Who do you think you are?] / Aku cam biasa je [I’m not affected]”). The video, a joint effort between Haverhuck VHS and the song’s own co-writer and composer DJ Biggie, reflects this as an altercation between Kidd’s crew with another ended up with a basketball match as opposed to a gang fight. Don’t worry, they made better use of that bat later in the video.
