FilCan Music Rap Awards is the first music awards presentation in Canada that recognizes Filipino-Candian music talents. A decade ago there were only a handful of Filipino-Canadian Rap artists creating and putting out music. With the rise of the genre and of social and streaming platforms there has been an exponential growth in the past few years. DJs, producers, dancers, artists, promoters and many others have connected with one another to create and develop a community that they call FilCan Music.

Raygee of Southeast Cartel describes FilCan Music as “not simply a platform or community, it explains the content we make. The topics, the sound, the lingo, the way we think – it all goes into our art. We find that a lot of international Filipinos lean towards either sounding like music back home (Philippines), or towards more of an American sound. Our mentality is “we are who we are”. This means that though we are in Canada, we still remember our roots and embrace both sides openly. We are not afraid to show this in our music. This helps us create art that is unique and totally our own. You can’t make FilCan music without being a FilCan yourself, and to me that’s what makes FilCan Music not only different but authentic”.

FILCAN Music Association and VIBEANT, recognizing artist’s dedication in 2020 and the need to create something positive in these unsettling times, decided to team up and create the first ever FilCan Rap Awards. This show aims to recognize FilCan Rap artist’s hard work and commitment to their craft, and also to show these artists just how valuable their music is to the community.

On June 12, On Philippine Independence Day, VIBEANT and FilCan Music Association will present the winner to the 6 categories, Music Video of the Year, Song of the Year, Solo Artist of the Year, Rap Group of the Year, EP/Album of the Year, and Collaboration of the Year.
