maraming salamat Sting Lacson!
I just want to go on the record and say this: Gloc-9 is the real deal.
Yeah, I was aware of who Gloc-9 was as far back as my college days. I knew a few songs, but I’ve never really listened to an entire album. Until this one.
The album delivers just what it promised in the title. MKNM: Mga Kwento ng Makatashowcases Gloc-9’s poetic arsenal, and if there ever was a Palanca Award category for Rap Lyrics, he would definitely be the first recipient. Not everyone who rhymes can rap, and not everyone who raps is a poet. Gloc-9 can in fact do both, and he can also teach you how to do tugmang di-ganap (I’m not sure what the English equivalent of that is) by rhyming “sabog” and “batok”, and “bayad” and “layag”, an unconventional technique in mainstream rap.
