Maraming salamat #ManilaBulletin! #Gloc9 #Rotonda
Gloc-9 is a game-changer. He says it like it is in his songs in manner and sound that’s truly his. After the late Francis Magalona, he is the most recognizable Pinoy rap artist in history – surely something he can be proud of given his beginnings as underground artist whom he self-effacingly describes as “Gusgusing rapper mula sa Rizal.”
Two decades since hitting it big, the artist resolves to tell his take on a myriad of stories with eyes wide open. He doesn’t try to reach out to the masses – he is right there with them.
“Hindi ako naging plastik dahil gusto ko lang sumikat. Ako’y nangarap at patuloy na nangangarap na isang rap artist. Sinadya ko na ako’y magmukhang isang tao na hindi mahirap lapitan. Naniniwala kasi ako na once na maglagay ka ng pader (sa pagitan mo at ng mga tao), du’n nagsisimula ang (pagbagsak mo),” he said.
