You started all the way back in Cebu. Did you really have all of this planned—the fame, the attention?
From the start, gusto ko talagang mag-artista. I like dancing and singing, and I was into that in school. When I met Dice, I wasn’t really into hip-hop. I was into ballads, but he introduced me to hip-hop.
For someone who’s not into the genre, you seem to have made a big splash on your first try out.
Actually, I was a solo artist in Cebu before I joined the group. When I joined Dice, K9, and Trap, they took care of producing the album, so that’s how I got away with it!
His next mission: share his 'superpower' to creative young artists
