Tuan Tigabelas recently released his first single of 2022 on January 17 in the form of the new theme song for the Indonesian Basketball League, ‘Ready’. The single follows the release of the cassette-only joint EP ‘Blunt Brothers’ with producer SicknessMP in November last year.
Previously in May that year, Tuan Tigabelas joined forces with Ecko Show and Zein Panzer for the track ‘Impostor Senayan’. The single followed the release of regional rap posse collaboration ‘Siapa Lagi’ with Hullera, AE$OP CA$H and Matter Mos.
Basboi most recently released an acoustic version of his debut album ‘Adulting For Dummies’ called ‘Acoustic For Dummies’ on February 18. The acoustic album contains 9 reworked tracks from ‘Adulting For Dummies’, though the track ‘FYI’ was not given the acoustic treatment and thus not included in ‘Acoustic For Dummies’.
Basboi will be performing at the upcoming Joyland festival in Bali in March alongside acts like Pamungkas, Kunto Aji, Senyawa, Raisa, Isyana Sarasvati, Maliq & D’Essentials, Gabber Modus Operandi and more this March 25.
