AUTTA is a rapper who I dare say has a technique and creativity that’s beyond good. He deserves to be in a global market. I do call him my teacher and he really did teach me how to rap.

  1. “Aow Pa!! (เอาป่ะ!!)” – KH x JOEY BOY

Two GODS in one song! This should be recorded as an important scene of Thai hip hop history.

I love all of ILLSLICK’s music,  but this song is my most favorite one which is full of respect.

I love an ILLSLICK diss track —it really shows his skill that deserves to be respected. The whole song is on fire and really good.

My most favorite and most listened to track by Joeyboy to this day.

In my heart, Twopee is one of the top artists. His voice and attitude give me energy.

It’s really cool.

DJ SpydaMonkee’s album Battle Tank is one of the best DJ scratches of all time, and this is one of my most favorite tracks.

This might be the very first track that gathered almost every member of AA Crew. This is legendary and should be praised.
