Rising rap star HERO joins forces with Filipino hitmaker Matthaios on “Dito”! The new single is a rap love song that talks about being willing to spend as much time with your bae as possible. Both the young rap stars show chemistry on the track, which is an undeniably catchy bop that sounds tailor-made for road trips with your significant other.
The song is also accompanied by a music video that co-stars the artists with real-life identical twins Ritchelle and Rochelle San Pedro. The subplot of the visuals takes a twist at the end when it is revealed that the muses look alike due to the fact that they are twins.

Shanti Dope and Flow G are two hip-hop powerhouses from the Philippines. The rappers each normally release songs that rake in millions of streams, so it’s no surprise that their new collaboration is going viral in the Philippines on YouTube.
“Kamusta,” which translates to “How are you?” in Tagalog is a powerful song that addresses depression and the importance of being there for your friends and family who may be fighting their own demons. The controversial music video tackles depression, anxiety, filming scandals without consent, and much more.
At the end of the music video, a dedication message reads: “This is dedicated for the loved ones we lost and those who continue to battle for their mental health. There's someone who is always willing to listen,” before sharing contact numbers for the National Center of Mental Health.
Two of the biggest names in OPM and Filipino hip-hop, Gloc-9 and Skusta Clee are back with a new song! The two cultural icons, who have connected before on “Karma,” are back once again on the powerful “Kumpisal.”
Gloc-9’s career in the music industry is 25 years strong and we’ve heard the MC touch base on a wide variety of topics throughout his discography, but his latest collaboration is his first song about religion and spirituality. “Kumpisal” looks into the dynamics of the Catholic sacrament of confession from the perspective of an individual practicing the sacrament.
The music video for the song was shot inside a church and features guest appearances by Shanti Dope, DJ Klumcee, and more. Watch the music video for “Kumpisal” below.
