So here's something for you to do on Merdeka, and it is nothing like you've ever done before...so this event will definitely be a Merdeka experience to be remembered.
Hosted by 'Common Ground' (Malaysia’s largest coworking space and community, here @ Jaya One), you're about to experience an epic night of incredible improv art...in the form of local hip-hop, music, and arts scene. Woot woot!!
Common Ground will also be partnering with Think You Got Skillz, The Gasket Alley, Raising the Bar, DISQOVR, Tiger, Pernod Ricard, SkullCandy, and more, so y'know it's gonna be one heck of a fun night.
WHEN: 31 August 2019
TIME: 4.00PM - 12.00AM
VENUE: The Gasket Alley, PJ
Best part of it all, apart from the endless fun, is that Entry is FREE!
Just RSVP before the event day to win some great prizes in the lucky draw.

Don't worry about food cause Tiffin Food Court is there as well, with a wide array for mouth-watering favs.
If that isn't exciting enough for you, there will also be two battles - an emcee rap battle (TYGS BARZ) and a beat maker production battle (TYGS Beat Meet) -- where you can witness the dopest emcees and beat makers showcase their skills in a Malaysia-themed battle.
It's gonna be a fierce fight to see who will be crowned champion, and over RM5,000 in cash and prizes to be won!
Oh if you think you have bars to spit, you can take part too!
TYGS BARZ Audition
1. Register online by 27 August 2019.
2. Be at The Gasket Alley by 5.00PM on the event day.
3. Fill out a form to confirm yourself as a candidate then wait for your turn.
4. Drop your sickest '16 Baris' without a background beat.
The beats for these rounds will be created and posted online by the participants of the TYGS Beat Meet battle.
So make sure you check them out and come prepared with a few verses, that must include 'Malaysia' or 'Merdeka' as a theme.
However, if you're interested in showcasing your talents in beat making and music production instead, here's what you need to do:
TYGS Beat Meet Audition
1. Create a 1-minute beat with a '16 Baris' section for an emcee to rap on.
2. Fuse your beat with Malaysian sounds, instruments, and vibes.
3. Upload your beat submission as a post on Instagram by 21 August 2019.
4. Include the following hashtags: #merdekabeatmeet #BattleForMalaysia #CGxTYGS #DisqovrMusic
5. Each participant is only allowed to upload one submission each. Don't forget to make sure your account is set to public.
Should you be selected as one of the Top 8, you'll be required to submit a 320kbps MP3 file of your beats, so that your winning submission can be uploaded for emcees to refer to, as these will be used as the backing track for the TYGS BARZ battle.
On the event day, come prepared with 3 new 'Malaysian-infused' beats to be used live. You'll need a fresh beat for each round (1/4 Final, Semi, and Final) that's no more than 2 minutes long.
So have a go champ!
Drop your sickest beats and let's keep hip-hop going strong.
We'll see you there
