By Isah V. Red | Feb. 05, 2014 at 06:00pm

His single “Lord Patawad” has every kid and adult singing and rapping with its radio airplay not only reaching Metro Manila but provinces as well. Its music video became the no.3 Top Trending Music Video on YouTube in the Philippines just after Psy and Katy Perry with over 12 million views.

This popular song is part of Bassilyo’s debut EP Klasik (MCA Music).

Rapper Bassilyo

One of the leading rappers in the Philippines, Bassilyo is also managed by the top record label. The EP also features the current single “Walang Kwentang Kanta,” which has a humorous music video now playing on MYX and YouTube, as well as other tracks and fillers like “WOW,” “Eucharist Bar,” “Matira Matibay,” featuring Crazy Mix, “Prinsesa Ko,” “Ayoko Nang Umawit,” “Pamagat,” and “Baliwan” featuring Crazy Family, Badboys, Crazy Mix, Crispin, Elbiz, Buhawi, G Clown, Flict G, Kakin and Lirico.

When Hiphop-blossomed in the Philippines in the early 1990’s, Lordivino “Deyb” Ignacio (aka. Bassilyo) is a part of the great sounding rap group collectively known as Crazy as Pinoy.

At a young age, they fell in love with rap music. While living in Marikina City, they would spend hours battle-rapping for fun. What started out as a hobby that they used to pass the time, quickly evolved into an irreplaceable outlet of self-expression and stress-relief.

They have cited influences from the late Francis Magalona, with some of their work sounding a bit like Gloc-9, Chito Miranda of Parokya Ni Edgar, Andrew E, Denmark, Mastaplann and numerous rap artist as inspiration to name a few.

Their music moved to another level when they realized its potential to reach the masses and its capacity to change and touch lives after winning Jet Set Grand Champion of Year 2002, that time then they were known as “Triangulo” and winning Eat Bulaga’s Rap Public of the Philippines Grand Champion in the year 2002 under the group name as Crazy as Pinoy.

The continuous popularity of rap music convinced Eat Bulaga to introduce a contest in 2002 called Rap-public of the Philippines which aims to discover new talents. The first volume of Rap-public of the Philippines album was then conceptualized and eventually the productions of hit songs like “Panaginip” and “Huwad.”

In 2012, Bassilyo joined FLIPTOP and became an instant hit. He is a rap battle star in the making with over 10 million views backing him up in YouTube. He also joined Homegrown Hip-hop compilation album, one of the best hip-hop compilation albums ever released in the Philippines.

Bassilyo’s Klasik is now out in CDs at leading record stores and digital downloads via and iTunes under MCA Music.
