STICK FIGGAS RELEASES ‘UBASAN’

The group – composed of eight members including, Loonie, Ron Henley, and Kat Agarrado on vocals; Jc Sebastian on guitar; Tuts Calinawan on bass; Macky Brillantes on drums; Bboy Garcia on turntables and Nikki Cabardo on keyboard – are all part of Stick Figgas whose name is a nod to each member’s stick-thin and skinny figures. Stick Figgas reveals that the inspiration and metaphor behind the song is “a happy place where people can find happiness within the presence of others”. Conveniently, the track has a chill and laid back vibe to it as the subject is rather light and humorous as compared to their other releases.

Stick Figgas, the rap group was initially formed by Loonie and Ron when the two joined a popular rap contest on television back in the mid 2000’s. The duo may not have won, but they did get a call from the great Francis Magalona who offered the two to do shows with him. From there, the duo sought out other musicians to form a group that was set to be the backup band for a tour. With the group’s dynamic vibing well, they all decided to continue writing songs together and has since secured their own spotlight in the local music industry.


Staying true to their roots, the group describe their sound as “very Pinoy”, which has that “tunog kalye” vibe. With the release of their brand new single “Ubasan” under MCA Music, Stick Figgas’ distinct sound can be heard by their ability to craft a rap track with great musicality and depth in lyricism that mixes in the local sound and humor.

“Ubasan” came to be as an inside joke within the band usually thrown as a phrase where someone is living a decadent and happy lifestyle. The members would picture a king laying down while being served grapes by beautiful women, “parang ibig sabihin ‘the good life’ or happy place’”. The group reveals that the inspiration and metaphor behind the song is “a happy place where people can find happiness within the presence of others”. Conveniently, the track has a chill and laid back vibe to it as the subject is rather light and humorous as compared to their other releases.

“Ubasan” is going to be a part of an upcoming album to be released under the same major label. MCA Music Inc (Universal Music Philippines) is the local label of some international hip-hop superstars like Eminem, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar. MCA Music Inc. has signed up Stick Figgas under its local roster of artists including Gabby Alipe, Autotelic, and Darren Espanto to name a few.
