Point Blanc - Ipoh Mali.

Yo, this song’s close to the heart, it’s my hometown baby, representin’Ipoh where you at?

Ipohmali Ipoh Ipohmali I sing it loud and proud that’s who I be
Cos’ small town dreams do come through so stand up and represent where you from too
Uh Ipohmali Ipoh Ipohmali
I sing it loud and proud that’s who I be
Cos’ small town dreams do come through so stand up and represent where you from too boo

Yo I was born and raised in a place where the hottest women come from
Ipoh city that’s where I’ll always belong Don’t get me wrong yo
I’m KL lite now Its just that my roots stay strong
Growin’ up as a Ipoh chink kid representin’ it Ipoh Garden Eastside yo was the hood I was kickin’ it
I grew up poor but I had the riches memories Wooley Food Centre rockin’ arcades religiously And after school me and my crew DFS would be-boy on the sidewalks in front of Fair Park shops And as my story drops I recollect I never had them fancy kicks, fancy clothes all I had was Hip Hop
And peer pressure left me with a scar cos’ when kids were rockin’ Airwalks I was rockin’ Bata Back then I had nothin’ but a dream to be a rap star
Now who would have thought this Ipoh chink would get this far?

Yo I’m a Ipohmali chinaman I represent small town kids havin’ big dreams so understand When I spit this rhyme yo’ I’m spittin’ it right
My flows divine and miraculous givin’ the blind sight, haha
Back in the day circa ‘95 In St. Michaels Church where I prayed for my life to get better
So I can be mah’ family’s provider the answer was to audition for Poetic Ammunition’s replacement rapper I dropped the beatbox blew Yogi B away got the record deal had a choice to make leave for KL or do I stay? Cos’ everybody sayin’ then bein’ a rapper don’t pay From Bingotown to Greentown I was strollin’ contemplatin’ what mah’ life’s future would be holdin’ Everybody I knew was all against it they said 16 yearold Ipoh kid will never make it But I persevered A boy with no fear I had hopes as high as Hotel Excelsior
For years I proved my critics wrong, that’s why I wrote this song to tell the world where I’m from cos’ I’m…….

We Ipohmali baby here to show y’all what we got
Never underestimate yourself cos’ you can make it no matter where you are
It ain’t where you’re from but how you make it to the top
Cos’ we are Ipohmali baby, here to show y’all what we got

To all mah’ peeps all down at JB Throw your hands up if y’all hear me
To all mah cats down at KL city Holla at me if y’all hear me
To all my pheng ew across the sea now Penang khia are y’all still down?
And everybody across the nation you can make it just be patient

Now flash forward to the present mah’ life at this point
Nobody knows mah’ real name they all call me Point
I’m an industry veteran 10 years in the game 3 LPs now that’s evidence
I seen it all the ladies, the groupies, the fancy parties, award ceremonies, glory and all that money (money) But I learned the hard way that fame came with a price
For Point Blanc to be more famous than Ipoh chicken rice

Ipoh, Ipoh, if y’all afraid go call the popo
It’s your boy Point lettin’ you know the hottest chink hollerin’ from Ipoh
