Life comes full circle as our Paboritong Makata reminisces his humble beginnings as a dreaming lad from the municipality of Binangonan in Rizal, looking up at the starlit night wishing that one day he’ll become part of the constellation of famous rap stars. And from that certain perspective, he crafted a song called “Kamusta Ka Na”.
The song is simple yet profound introspection. It is a monologue where Gloc-9 chats to his young self; looking back to the tune when he took the road less travelled.
The journey of the seemingly countless rejections, armed with only his unwavering belief that with each trial he surpassed is one step closer to making his dream become a reality.
Success is in the journey and what a ride it has been! Twenty-five years and he’s still riding the waves. According to his manager, Asintada Management’s chairman and CEO Thea Pollisco aka Mrs. 9, feeling age creeping in and yet he still spurred to keep going but this time as a beacon, trailblazing his way for the young rap artists to follow, stoking within each of them the very same fire that once upon a time he had.
Recently, Gloc-9 has been actively releasing several other projects, including the launch of their first collaboration with Greyhoundz since 2006, “XXV” and a song called “Kwentong Barbero” with newly signed UR artist Ramdiss.
The single artwork of the song was made by CLMarts.
