I’ve nothing against anyone who doesn’t prefer hip-hop, or to narrow it down, local rap artists. What I hate are those instances when people just dismiss a homegrown artist just because he or she sings in our own language and/or just because that artist caters to the masses, in the process discrediting the talent that is required to produce such original songs. It doesn’t have to be hip-hop. It doesn’t have to be ballad. When it’s a local artist sweating it out to write songs in Filipino, don’t be an asshole and look down on the final work because it’s jologs. Listen to it, then judge it. Then perhaps, I’ll respect your educated opinion.
That said, I’m rating Gloc-9’s masterpiece a 10 out of 10.
