W.A.R.I.S started singing publicly at small to medium events in 2012, and when he performed at Raising The Bar, a place where new artistes showcased their talents, he was spotted by DJ Fuzz.

His song entitled ‘Rembau Most Wanted’ was originally created using Wu-Tang Clan’s C.R.E.A.M as the minus one. The song’s lyrics were sung in the unique dialect of the State of Negeri Sembilan, the birth place of W.A.R.I.S., symbolising his identity and roots.

The song was recomposed by DJ Fuzz in 2013 when it catapulted in popularity at the local radio stations. Its music video which was shot at his birth place in Rembau, Negeri Sembilan garnered 1.3 million views on YouTube , in just three months.

‘Rembau Most Wanted’, his first album, was released in October 2015, in collaboration with popular Malaysian artistes: Dato’ Hattan, Mark Adam, Juzzthin, Mas Idayu, Salam Musik, Adeep Nahar and Iwere.

The album’s titled song was nominated for Best Hip Hop Song at AIM 20 while ‘Gadis Jolobu’ got into the finals of AJL 29.

W.A.R.I.S’ second single titled ‘Gadis Jolobu’ was a collaboration with Dato’ Hattan.

W.A.R.I.S will perform at WYJF in the HIP HOP MEETS JAZZ segment together with Imran Aiman and Janine Annice.
