GLOC-9 Collabs with an Aspiring Singer and Achieves Mutual Life Milestones

The creative naturally flows during special occasions. With Gloc-9 celebrating his birthday this October, it is no surprise that a song or two will pop out. However, more than this, it is also more fulfilling to be an instrument of realizing someone else's dreams.

Last August, Gloc-9 came to an agreement with Alkaviva Waters Philippines to franchise their brand. It was actually a God given happenstance that fate brought them together as it provided an opportunity to diversify and invest on the future for our favorite Makata and at the same time for PECEngr. Marie Grace Quintero Cristobal, owner of Alkaviva, to fulfill her dream of becoming a recording artist. Talk about WIN-WIN, right?

Wait, what?!

Yep, Gloc-9 found inspiration in his conversations with M'Grace to write "Maulit Man" and at the same time collab with her in recording the song.

Many will surely relate to this ode to love as it chronicles the strength and resilience of two lovers in overcoming the challenges of life's many ironies.

The song is available on all streaming platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube Music ( https://bfan.link/gloc9-gracecristobal-maulitman) . You can also watch the video directed by Edrex Clyde Sanchez at Gloc-9’s YouTube channel http://bit.ly/glocdash9YT

Shanti Dope talks about living a successful life in his latest single, LOADED featuring HELLMERRY

Shanti Dope drops another surprise single to start the month of October with such sick beats and rhythm. In this new track featuring the up-and-coming artist, HELLMERRY, Shanti gives us a glimpse of what it is like to live a successful life loaded with all that they have ever dreamed of. Since Shanti entered the industry half a decade ago, it has been a crazy fast ride to the top for him. At such a young age, he has been leaving very distinct marks in the local and international music scene. For Shanti who has been creating hits after hits, this ride to success ain't slowing down anytime soon.

In 2018, Disney star Sabrina Carpenter teamed up with the young rap star for “Almost Love.” Following this success, his most-talked about single “Amatz” - a song that made quite a headline when it was first released in 2019, reached international fame when it was featured in the premiere season of Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier earlier this year. Just months after this headline, this same song continued to add laudation among his many milestones as it emerged in Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales Chart on number 10.

GLOC 9 celebrates its 24 years in the music industry

Success is fickle minded.


We have seen many one hit wonders rise and fall out of the limelight since they can only do, well, only one hit. But to continually attain success is a sign of dedication and love for the craft. Such is what Aristotle Pollisco aka Gloc-9 has been doing the past 24 years as he established his niche as a major influencer in the Philippine hip hop scene.

Twenty-four years---WOW!

Gloc-9 rose from the ranks of hip hop wannabes in 1997 setting his roots from doing collaborations with other hip hop artists and doing underground album releases. It is no secret as to how hard he struggled and how much he sacrificed to claw his way out of anonymity---but as they say, "You can't put a good man down." His remarkable climb to being one of the pillars of Philippine hip hop only proves the fact that hard work, dedication, and love of what you're doing can lead to success. A story that reverberates as an inspiration to young aspiring artists.

With a career spanning almost a quarter of a century, Gloc-9 is more into making sure that the hip hop industry continue on into the next generation by opening the flood gates of opportunity to the many talented Filipino rappers using his social media clout as a platform for collaborations.

His recent "44 Challenge" generated thousands of responders that showcased how much talented Pinoy rappers are just hiding at the seams waiting for their chance to take center stage.

Gloc-9 is now paying it forward. He was that talented youngster waiting for his chance when a Man from Manila took notice and welcomed him into his house, gave him the needed push and guidance to succeed in the cutthroat world of showbusiness. In like manner, Gloc-9 goes out of his way to help young talents, inspiring them to love their craft, and sharing the stage with them to showcase their talent.

Gloc-9 has nothing more to prove as an artist. His awards cabinet is already filled to the brim. Just recently, he was one of the recipient of the prestigious SUDI National Music Award bestowed by the National Commission for the Culture and the Arts. Another affirmation of his impact in the industry he loves so much.

He is Aristotle Pollisco, Gloc-9, rapper, songwriter, the blacksmith of words, a true Filipino poet, an icon.

Congratulations and looking forward to many more productive years ahead!
