Isa ang Death Threat sa Legendary Rap group sa pinas dahil sa naiambag nila sa Pinoy Hiphop, they bring Gangsta Rap to the table and the rest is history, one of the artist that i look up to in that group is sir Konflick, there’s just something in him that lures me, im still not so sure kung dahil ba sa boses nya o sa mga bitaw ng verses but one thing is for sure when i hear the voice i know it’s him, he’s one of a kind, he uses Dalubhasa in his name and no one can argue with that. Luckily i was able to talk to him see what we discuss below:
PHS: When did you start your rap career and how did you discover your into this genre?
KONFLICK: I started writing my own raps nung 4th yr HS ako . pero ang nag bigay ng break sakin para makapasok sa industry is Real Deal Productions na ang CEO ay si Og Beware ng Death Threat. Year 2000 when me and my crew “KFS” attended the “Reckognize” album launch at the Music museum and isa ko sa naging contestant sa freestyle contest that night. then after non pag balik ko sa Seat namin may nag abot ng calling card at nag pakilalang si “ Joker One “ ng real deal prod. then yun, tinawagan ko , nagulat ako ng si Beware ang sumagot. and the rest is history.
PHS: Can you give us a story about your Rap name? like how did you came up with that?
KONFLICK: Si Beware ang nag bigay sakin ng name na Konflick . tinanong nya kung trip ko, nagustuhan ko naman. tnx OG
PHS: Your part of the legendary rap group Death Threat, how was it like working with them, give us a memorable story about you and the group.
KONFLICK: To be part Of Death Threat is really a Dream come true.. Sobrang Idol ko sila na tipong Tumatakas pa kami sa parents namin ng kuya ko makapanood lang ng concert nila then magigising ka na lang one day na you are one of them. Most memorable experience for me is when we did a song with Francis M and Ely buendia. I think Yun ang Highlight ng career ko as an artist . alam mo yung tipong habang nag peperform ka maririnig mo yung boses ni sir Kiko na sinasabayan yung verse mo? like , Come on man , really? yung hari kabisado yung verse mo? haha. wala na siguro kong mahihiling pa. 😃🙏
PHS: Who are your musical influences? and what style did you adopt?
KONFLICK: When I was in grade school, memorized ko yung mga songs ni FrancisM and Andrew E. pero wala akong idea sa hiphop. ang alam ko lang ay RAP ang tawag don. then Highschool na ako ng mas naintindihan ko yung Culture. Panahon na ito ng 90s Hiphop Snoop, Tupac, Biggie, Naughty by Nature, Wutang etc, at nag start na din mag boom ang local scene, Mastaplann , Death Threat, Legit Misfits, Ghetto Doggs, SVC yan ang ilan sa mga influences ko. Lahat yan pinag aralan ko hanggang sa madevelop yung sarili kong style .
PHS: Just a random question do you have anyone in mind that you want to collaborate or work with? if so then who and why?
KONFLICK: Dream ko maka collab si Andrew E and Mastaplann …
syempre mga Lodi ko yon 😀💯
PHS: Your thoughts about the current state of local hiphop?
KONFLICK: Sobrang lakas ng local scene ngayon, nakakatuwa kasi nakikita mong nagbunga yung pinaghirapan ng mga nauna at nagbigay daan.
PHS: Are you still active? is so where could we find your new stuff?
KONFLICT: Yes active pa rin ako . part ako ng Hiphop 22 kasama sila loonie , abra , mike swift and others . we released an album called Homegrown Hiphop, nag produce din ako ng Solo project last 2015 entitled “Lost and Found “ and ryt now, were finishing the new Death Threat album, im also workin on my new Konflick mixtape and may lalabas akong new single at Music video entitled “ Blame it on YE “ isa pa sa project na tintapos ko . album with Fil canadian rap group “SANTRIBO” tnx
