I’m not into star rating, I’ve been listening to this album for a week now by the title itself you expect some horrocore type tracks, but to my surprise tama si sir Rap Dela Fuente, this project is a soul food and can change lives. It can change people opinion in some ways. I love how sir Apoc stay true to the old school hip-hop, the vibe, the story-telling. It is an element. I miss in a rap album and these days storytelling are mostly love songs this one beg to differ, there a track that will question your spiritual faith that’s not for close minded people, “Taong Mesiyas”, there’s a track that will teach you lessons like that “Sensitibo” track, na maraming lines that will stand out even if there’s no beat in there. lines like:
“pag tinawag kang panget, magkaka cancer kb? pag tinawag kang hayop, magiging hamster kb? sinabihang mabaho magiging tae ka ba? Hindi, diba? okey ka lang? kaya sa makatuwid O.A ka lang”
And there’s this track about stereotyping rappers the mentality of being one. The main point of an MC who have wrong perceptions or false ideas of what should an artist should look like or act like but my main favorite track is both “Wala Akong Pake” & “Husgado” not only it is a different style from what I expect but it is a style that hits me in my head. The catchy beat and hook made me an instant fan, plus the lines are so godlike:
“Wala akong obligasyong paligayahin kayo“
While Husgado is a good storytelling at it’s finest. It’s clever. The delivery, the style it is something you should hear. It kinda reminds me of a track from a famous local rapper
but this one is different in a sense that it also teaches us a lesson. I like the storytelling that starts with “Ang nasasakdal…” then kung sino man un, then the story progresses. It tells you how almost everyone normally is a judgemental, and by the end of each verse it shows us that most of us judge people in a wrong way, the 3rd verse na ang nasasakdal ay tayong lahat na mismo
I love the line “ako nga ay mas gago pa, sapagkat hinuhusgahan ko kayo, sa pagiging mapanghusga”
This album surprise in a sense that it is not something I don’t expect. It’s dark but it’s true, it’s dark but it’s straight to the point. The content is well written. It’s old school. There’s lesson, there’s storytelling. There are other tracks that are good too walang tapon. It is well produced. To make it short, it is something you should buy and listen.
KUDOS Sir Apoc! thanks for allowing me to hear this. Can’t wait to someday share your track. It makes me excited to look forward to your next installment.
