Gloc 9 on being called New Francis M: ‘Ayoko talagang kunin yung title na yun’
052816-gloc9_main.jpgOn Tonight with Boy Abunda, Gloc 9 reacted to being called the new Francis Magalona of the Philippines. “Minsan sana hindi nao-offend ang taong nagsasabi nun kasi talagang bina-block ko yun. Personally, ayoko talagang kunin yung title na yun. If ever may title ako, ang title ko lang talaga ay alalay ng hari dahil ako ay, to begin with ako po ay tagahanga ni Francis M. Nagkataon lang po ako na ako ay nakapag-rap din, dahil sa kanya ako din ay nakasulat ng mga songs and ng mga lyrics…”

Asked how he knew he wanted to become a rapper, Gloc 9 said, “nung una kinakanta ko talaga mga kanta ni Ogie Alcasid na ‘Nandito Ako,’ mga hits ni Randy Santiago, nina Gino Padilla, nina Ariel Rivera. Pero narealize ko na hindi ako nabiyayaan ng regalo sa pagkanta, pero napansin ko talaga yung aking keen for rhythm and timing. Nung bata pa ako mahilig na ako sa mga slogan writing contests so napansin ko parang pwede ako mag-rap.” 

Gloc 9 has a new album under Star Music entitled Sukli, and it’s carrier single is called “Hoy.”  Gloc 9 says “Hoy” is about the resilience of the Filipino.
