Becoming the champion in the Battle of the Beats, who would have known this beat maker will pursue more of his passion.

He made beats to many artists and helped them shine with their signature tracks and still doing so at this point and not only that, he created Rawstarr which holds a selection of Pinoy hiphop artists that further elevated his career and of those in the label, as well.
We need more of this kind of professionality that is both humble and inspiring. Pinoy Hiphop will definitely reach levels we never thought of.
