Rapper Gloc-9 explains why he would rather be called ‘Alalay ng Hari’
053116-Gloc9_PUSH.jpgAfter almost 19 years in the music industry, rapper Gloc-9 (whose real name is Aristotle Polistico) admitted he already feels blessed with what he has accomplished. "Ang lagi ko ngang sinasabi noon puwede na ako mag-stop ngayon and still be very happy and thankful. God has given me a lot already and wala na akong mai-re-reklamo pa. Kapag binabalikan ko lahat ng dinasal ko nung ako’y nagsisimula pa lang, hindi man niya ito sinagot sa oras na gusto ko pero definitely sa tamang oras ay lahat yun ay sinagot niya. Ngayon, masaya ako na nakabalik ako sa Star Music and marami akong kaibigan dito. Pamilyar na yung mga tao sa akin,” he shared during the presscon for his Star Music comeback album Sukli held inside the ABS-CBN compound.

Although he is being dubbed the new Master Rapper of the country, Gloc-9 humbly declined the title which is associated with the late Francis Magalona. "Wala talaga sa plano ko or wala sa agenda ko na mag-claim ng ganung mga title. Kung meron man akong title na hinahawakan ngayon na pertaining or in connection kay sir Kiko ay ito ay ‘Alalay ng Hari’ dahil yun lang talaga. Ako ay isang fan sa sobrang galing na artist na nagkataon na nakapagsulat at nakapag-record ng mga kanta dahil din sa kanya,” he admitted.

In fact, Gloc-9 said he will never get tired of saying who his inspiration is for his music. "Yung songwriting and delivery and execution ko ng mga songs ko, yung foundation nun ay si Francis M. kaya hindi puwedeng sabihin ko na ganun (na ako na ang next Master Rapper),” he added.

As the singer and composer of the Ang Probinsyano theme, Gloc-9 saidhe was lucky to get a Kapamilya project. "Binigyan ako ng pagkakataon ng Dreamscape at Star Music na magsulat para sa Ang Probinsyano. Malaking tulong sa isang artist yun kaya I’m very thankful na nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon to write a song for them. Maraming salamat din dahil pinagkatiwalaan nila yung kantang yun para makasama dun sa programa,” he says. His newest album Sukli features collaborations with other talented artists like KZ Tandingan and Ebe Dancel

Sukli will be exclusively streamed on Spotify beginning May 29 and will have its official album launch on June 5, Sunday at the Market! Market! Activity Center in Taguig.
