In my own opinion, there is no such thing as low-class music, only subjectively off-tangent ones. And it would be of no harm if we widen our often restrictive repertoire of good music.
And Raymond "ABRA" Abracosa, the face of today's local hiphop generation might be someone you would like to check out. Here are some reasons why you should go through his youtube channel (with a bombarding 23 million hits and still counting!)
5. He's good looking.
This is one compelling force we cannot simply deny. He is young, spontaneous, and he has got that smile that can pretty much melt everything away. Anyhow, won't it be a sweet treat to be pampered both auditorilly and visually?
4. He's eloquent.
Words do not always come easy, but ABRA has a handful of youtube videos to detest that. We can never be sure if it is of great sorcery that he can do so, but what we are certain of is that his mind and tongue is definitely tied together; and they push and pull one another.
3. He's nothing but an artist.
He does not want to venture show business, he just wants to rap, nothing more and nothing less. He takes his music as an impenetrable artwork. In a room full of fans and vigilant spectators, we will see him carelessly humming a word or two, like a floating vagabond.
2. He's smart.
On the question of comparison between him, Gloc 9 and the late Francis Magalona, he bravely said that it is such a pointless thing to entertain for they are all different artists in different generations with different inspirations to write about. Brilliance, witt and humility all rolled into one.
1. HE WILL BE HAVING HIS FIRST MAJOR CONCERT!
The long wait is over! ABRA is all set to hit the big stage on his first major concert on August 17 at Circuit Makati. Just in case you are still not that much convinced on why ABRA is someone worthy of your elusive attention, well why not check him out yourself?
