Join the international Filipino Community in celebrating Filipino talent!
Filipino hip-hop heavyweights Flow G, Skusta Clee, and J. Roa are unstoppable as they make themselves known in the international music scene. Flow G’s “G Wolf” has been included as part of the soundtrack of the popular video game NBA 2K23, while Skusta Clee’s “Dance with You” hit 200 million views on YouTube making it the most-viewed OPM video.

J. Roa on the other hand is set to release his first English album in 2023.
There’s no stopping them as they are set to dominate the Canadian Stage this November for the “Canada Filipino Hip-hop Fest 2022”.

Spearheaded by CEO Jovee Basilio of YY Entertainment, the tour is a series of 9 shows covering 9 Cities: Calgary, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto, Halifax, Montreal, and Vancouver. Special appearances are also to be made by social media influencers Angelica Jane Yap and Raina Martin Eguia, who are real-life partners of Flow-G and J. Roa, respectively.

These Filipino hip-hop icons are stoked as the said tour will be Skusta Clee and Flow-G’s first international tour as solo artists; J. Roa on the other hand toured Canada in the summer of 2022. Skusta Clee said: “Alam natin ang mga kababayan nating nasa abroad ay na ho-homesick din sa kanilang pamilya dito sa Pinas lalo na magpapasko kaya excited kami na makapag-perform para sa kanila sa Canada para kahit papaano mabigyan namin sila ng saya through our music “

Shanti Dope and Flow G’s “Kamusta” is a reminder to go and check in on our friends

“Kumusta?” or “How are you?” is always a welcome question amongst friends. It’s an ice breaker for what would be the start of the conversation or a soothing acknowledgement to someone going through tough times.

Written in collaboration with Flow G, Shanti Dope’s latest release with the title “Kamusta” touches on a very delicate topic — depression.
Depression is a serious matter and we’ve lost many young and very talented lives because of this mental health issue.

It comes as a surprise that with Shanti Dope and Flow G’s persona as hip-hop artists such a topic can be an inspiration for a song; which only goes to show how well-rounded individuals they are and not just an echo for grunt and angst. In terms of the lyrics, the two rappers were able to bring up the important discussion regarding mental wellness and helped in the stigma of suffering from depression being removed, in their own special way.

If someone with depression does not find God for solace, a family member or a friend can help with the continued reassurance that help is always available. All it takes is to say, “Kamusta?” “Meron bang nakakubli sa likod ng ‘yong ngiti at kutitap ng iyong mga mata? Mabigat ba sa dibdib ‘pag laging pinipigilang sabihin ang iyong nadarama? Di mo gustong malaman ng mundo ang kahinaan mo Kung wala kang malapitan, Pwede mo akong sabihan.”

“Kamusta” will be available on all streaming platforms under Universal Records Philippines. The music video was directed by Jeremy Lim of Blck Mrkt.
