by: Ohhhhh6Manila Our group (Ohhhhh6 Manila) is pretty close-knit who plans out-of-town trips together at least twice a year. Winning the coveted #BoracayBarkadaGetaway allowed us to experience a lot of firsts and other things in a new perspective. It was our first time to #flyskyjetair. We felt that the free baggage allowance and snacks on board were good deals. Transfer to and from Caticlan airport was made easy by Southwest Travel and Tour. We’re giving a plus point to Kathleen, who was extremely nice and fun. On the accommodation, #BoracayTropicsResorts Hotel dorm type room best fits the group with 6 solo beds. The staff were very accommodating and prompt to address any concern. We were welcomed with drinks, snacks, a personal note and a family style dinner on our first day. A very warm welcome indeed! No issues on security, service, and amenities as these were maximized and enjoyed all throughout the stay. We don’t doubt that the next #Wave891fm’s #BBG will be as enjoyable as we experienced given the smooth communication from the day of confirmation of winners, meeting the cool and soft-spoken station manager, Nelson a.k.a. The Sarge, arranging our island hopping activity and ensuring that everything will be smooth for our group.


Known as the “Philippines’ King of R&B”, Jay-R was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Before he became known in the Philippine music industry, he started his career along with Jimmy Muna and Kris Lawrence with a group called First Impressions back in 1997, as well as his uncle Bobby Silona’s band, The Howlers in the U.S. His big break as an R&B artist was when he was offered a record deal with Universal Records, and a network deal from GMA TV Network in 2003. On the same year, his debut album, Gameface earned a Platinum status by Philippine Association of the Record Industry (PARI). His songs “Design for Luv” and “Bakit Pa Ba?” from the said album invaded the radios and music channels nationwide. A year after, he starred in his debut film, "So Happy Together" alongside Kris Aquino, then more films and TV shows followed since then. Because of the success of his first album, he became an in-demand endorser of various brands such as Bench, Sun Cellular, Unisilver, Colgate, Tropicana, Technomarine, and Kaspersky. In 2006, he opened his own record label, JayRs Music. Under JayRs Music, he recorded his first Christmas album initially called "Christmas Away From Home" but eventually changed to "Holiday of Love" on its final release. In 2009, he made up his mind and focused working on his independent record label, and renamed it Homeworkz Entertainment Services. Signed under this label are Hip-Hop/R&B artists Q-York and Chelo A, Alternative Rock band Kley, and Rap/Hip-Hop artists Salbakuta, and a Singer/Dancer/Model, Mica Javier to name a few. Aside from his career in the entertainment industry, Jay-R is a Bar/Restaurant owner of TreeHouse in Makati. Jay-R is definitely an inspiration; a well-deserved title “Philippines’ King of R&B”.

The Afternoon Delight with Dash Calzado and Angelo G had an exclusive interview with Antonio Cuna, better known as Sweater Beats to his fans last Friday, September 30, 2017. Sweater Beats is a homegrown artist that has done music along with one of the biggest acts in the U.S. namely Chance The Rapper and some song remixes of Ciara, Flume, Chet Faker, and Kimbra to name a few. He is currently promoting his new song Glory Days ft. Hayley Kiyoko. He started making music when he was 13 years old with his pop-punk and emo band. When his friends left his hometown, Maryland for college, he began making his own beats and uploaded it on Soundcloud. That was the genesis of his journey as a successful solo artist. Angelo G. shared his story how he was introduced to Sweater Beats music. Back in 2011, his friend shared a track from Soundcloud (which was still kinda fresh at that time) that happened to be one of Sweater Beats' early mixes and since then, it got Angelo G. hooked up with his music. Then Sweater Beats added more music and came 2014, he released his mix of Diplo and Friends Mix 2014 that it became Angelo G.'s favorite jam. One of Sweater Beats signature styles during his live shows is to catch people off-guard, like what Angelo G. experienced in one of his gigs in back in San Francisco. He usually begins with astounding chord progressions and let it dictate where he wanna take a song to emphasize the emotional rollercoasters of his music. Sweater Beats' dream collaboration is with Pharell with his song Skateboard P and Grindin' (that has the iconic beats that used to invade tables during high school lunch breaks). Sweater Beats shared some advice to the aspiring musicians and producers who want to pursue such a career same as his. "When you're learning your craft and as you go on your journey, you're gonna tugged with many directions like what style you should do, what's popular, but at the end of the day, make what feels good to you." "Another thing is social media is the most important thing. It's a huge part of being a producer to market your music. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there." And for the biggest question...*drum rolls please* Why Sweater Beats? "Because I make music that makes you feel warm and fuzzy, and I put beats after it so you can google me." He's interested collaborating with some of our local artist like Sam Concepcion, and big names like CRWN, Jess Connely, Kiana Valenciano were highly suggested on the table.

RIAA PLATINUM CERTIFIED RAP ANTHEM MAKES BILLBOARD HISTORY AS HIGHEST CHARTING TRACK BY A FEMALE RAPPER THIS YEAR “BODAK YELLOW (FEAT. KODAK BLACK) [REMIX]” RELEASED TO CRITICAL ACCLAIM NYC-BASED RAPPER CURRENTLY TIED WITH KENDRICK LAMAR AS TOP NOMINEE FOR UPCOMING BET HIP HOP AWARDS “BODAK YELLOW (MONEY MOVES)” AVAILABLE NOW AT ALL DSPS AND STREAMING SERVICES Click this link and listen to the track KSR/Atlantic recording artist Cardi B has made history as her breakthrough hit single, “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” ascends to #1 on Billboard’s “Hot 100.” Recently certified RIAA platinum for sales equivalents in excess of 1 million, “Bodak Yellow” is the highest charting single by any female rapper this year. Along with its current status as the #1 single in the country, “Bodak Yellow” is standing tall at #1 on Billboard’s “Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs” and “Hot Rap Songs” charts, the latter for six consecutive weeks and counting, as well as #1 at Rhythm radio. “Bodak Yellow” is available now at all digital music retailers and streaming services. With more than 188 million total streams thus far, “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” is also proving a historic streaming sensation, pulling an impressive 40 million streams in just one week alone, to reach #1 on Billboard’s “Streaming Songs” tally. The “Bodak Yellow” companion visual is equally popular, now with over 170 million videos via YouTube alone. Directed by Picture Perfect, the video “perfectly captures Cardi's status as she reels in the success that accompanies her moves as of late,” wroteHotNewHipHop, “cementing her ascent as a formidable force in hip-hop's current landscape.” “Bodak Yellow” is also joined by a pair of acclaimed remixes, including “Bodak Yellow Latin Trap Mix Feat. Messiah” and the just-released “Bodak Yellow (Feat. Kodak Black) [Remix],” both now available at all DSPs and streaming services. The latter track was greeted with wide-ranging media attention, including Rap-Up, Billboard, Stereogum, HotNewHipHop, Pitchfork, XXL, Complex, Uproxx, and High Snobiety, which declared it “utterly fire.” Named “the rap anthem of summer 2017” by the New York Times, “Bodak Yellow” has received critical applause to match its record-breaking popularity. Vulture affirmed Cardi B as “Undisputed Artist of the Summer,” adding “Bodak Yellow” is “the kind of hit typically designed to work for men like Drake, or New York rap guys like A$AP Rocky who’ve closed regional gaps with their Southern influence.” Complex decreed, “Cardi B is Cardi B 24/7, 365, this is why she resonates with people, and that same energy comes out in her music… ’Bodak Yellow’ is a great, extraordinarily catchy record. The hook, the beat, her lyrics: it all works. Cardi sounds so sure of herself, it's difficult not to believe and rap along with every word.” Perhaps Stereogum summed it up best: “Bodak Yellow” is “a big, loud, brash, noisy song, and it’s perfect.” Cardi B – who can also be heard on the recently released new single from G-Eazy, “No Limit (Ft. A$AP Rocky and Cardi B)” – has proven 2017’s greatest hip-hop phenomenon, evidenced by the stunning set of nominations she has received for this year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards. The NYC-based rapper was honored with a remarkable nine total nods, tied only with Kendrick Lamar for 2017’s most nominations. Cardi B received nominations including “Best New Hip Hop Artist,” “Hot Ticket Performer,” “MVP of the Year,” “Best Mixtape” (for “GANGSTA BITCH MUSIC, VOL. 2”), “Made-You-Look Award,” and “Hustler of the Year,” with “Bodak Yellow” named in the “Best Hip-Hop Video,” “Single of the Year,” and “Impact Track” categories. The BET Hip-Hop Awards will be presented live on Tuesday, October 10th, exclusively on BET (check local listings). Indeed, Cardi B is quickly becoming an undeniable pop culture superstar, rising from internet icon and star of VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop: New York to KSR/Atlantic recording artist and critically acclaimed, chart-topping rapper. The Bronx native made a series of increasingly popular musical efforts before unleashing her debut mixtape, “GANGSTA BITCH MUSIC, VOL. 1,” in 2016, followed the next year by the even-more-potent GANGSTA BITCH MUSIC, VOL. 2.” Signed to Atlantic Records in Fall 2016, Cardi B has followed June’s release of “Bodak Yellow” with a seemingly unstoppable series of appearances and live events including memorable performances of “Bodak Yellow” during the MTV Video Music Awards pre-show ceremonies and on the nationally syndicated Wendy Williams Show, and a cover-starring feature in The FADER’s best-selling “Summer Music Issue.” As if that wasn't enough, Cardi B received two top BET Awards nominations (for “Best New Artist” and “Best Female Hip Hop Artist”) and was among the highest profile celebrities seen at the recent New York Fashion Week, including visits to Rihanna’s Third Diamond Ball, a performance at the esteemed Alexander Wang’s WangFest party and Pat McGrath’s “Mothership” Vogue Ball.

“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” - Banksy Premiered at Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival and started a regular run in cinemas nationwide on Martial Law’s 45th anniversary, Respeto is a film that would definitely leave a mark on you as the end credit rolls up. The story revolves around an aspiring fliptop rapper, Hendrix (played by Abra), who experiences mishaps life in the midst of government’s Oplan Tokhang (War on Drugs). His petty crime leads him to Doc (played by Dido De La Paz) who is an old poet himself and a victim of Martial Law. Respeto was cited “for its infectious, propulsive energy, its highly convincing cast of characters and very effective ensemble acting, its breathtaking, nearly epic sweep of the underside of Manila, its expert application of the resources of cinema to depict a teenager’s drive to rise above poverty and violence, it cogent melding of contemporary rap and traditional oral literature, and its sheer humanity and coruscating poetry.” Every verse muttered is a perfect depiction of how the people on the fringes of social class are being preyed as they fight for their life and how a piece of power could give you a license to escape the consequences of ones’ misdemeanor. It showcases the horror of history repeating itself as the two members of different generation endures the violation on human rights. It is no doubt that this Cinemalaya entry is another must-see work of art that will definitely move the viewers to another level of social relevance consciousness. You can catch Respeto in cinemas nationwide.
