Abra aims to release three albums this year
032616-abra_main.jpgFilipino rapper Abra was one of the big winners during this year’s MYX Music Awards with two awards: Favorite Urban Video for his OPM hit “Diwata” and Best Music Video special award for “Cerberus.” 

First time ko yata pumasok sa MYX noong 2013 awards so nakatatlong taon ako. Pangatlong taon na po yata namin sa MYX. Siyempre kinagagalak ko talaga ‘tong mga awards na ‘to, hindi lang ako showy masyado pero nag-ju-jumping jacks na ‘yung kaluluwa ko,” he told members of the press during the awards night. 

Meanwhile, Abra also shared that he was working on the repackaging of his first album. When asked what fans can expect from him, the Fliptop battle participant said, “Maraming marami po. Hindi pa pwedeng idisclose pero maangas na maangas. Abangan niyo po ‘yung mga susunod kong kanta. Nirepackage ko ‘yung album ko eh, first album. Magdadagdag ako ng dalawang importanteng kanta.” 

Moreover, he said that his group LDP (short for Lyrically Deranged Poets) will also release an album and that he will also release a second one soon. “Lahat ‘yan, ngayong taon subukan kong gawin lahat. Tatlong album. ‘Pag hindi ko nagawa, wala ako sa Fliptop next year pero dahil gagawin ko ‘yun, nasa Fliptop ako next year,” he said.

When asked if he is receiving acting offers, Abra said “yes” however, “Meron kaso hindi ko kayang ibigay ‘yung oras ko ‘dun. ‘Yung puso ko kasi nasa music. Kung gusto ko lang kumita siguro, gano’n pero it’s not about the money, it’s about the music.”

When asked to give advice to aspiring rappers, he urged them to focus on their craft and deviate away from mediocrity. “’Wag kayong masyadong mag-acting, masisira ‘yung concentration niyo at mauubusan kayo ng oras. Focus lang kayo sa ginagawa niyo, sa lyricism. Galingan niyo mabuti, aralin niyo kung pa’no ‘yung flow, kung pa’no gumawa ng mga... metaphor at galingan niyo palagi, ayun lang naman ang sikreto. Ang problema lang naman sa Pilipinas, ‘yung mga tao minsan nakukuntento na sa pwede na kaya ‘yun ang ‘wag natin gagawin. Dapat lagi tayong the best para solid,” he said.
