SS Staff are taking advantage of our free time.. So while our schedule is not that hectic.. we gonna give you another Old Skool Fridays.. and this time we got (Death Threat) Hi-Jakkk - Gloc-9 who is undeniably one of the best and influential rap group that turn into a duo in the history of Philippine's Hip-Hop/Rap scene.. With their Gangsta to Horrorcore style.. they took the country by storm in 1997 through Death Threat's 3rd album "Kings of the Underground" which is technically considered a Hi-Jakkk Gloc-9 album due to the absence of the group's main man "Beware" even though the concept and music is backed by DT and RMK and pics of the group was still on the inlay.. The fans were surprised to this sudden change plus the fact that this is the first appearance of the group's then newest member Gloc-9 who is equipped with the tongue twist style of rapping.. which is a skill that not too many can achieve or acquire at that time... The album contains tracks with subject matter that tackles from Religion, Corrupt Officials, Crime and of course Gangsta Rap where the group is well known off. and it is easily accepted by the listeners specially on the streets where you can hear this album on almost every block playing.. Proof of this is the Gold (or Platinum) record award... and not to mention the style of rapping that Gloc-9 initiated is adopted by a lot of Aspiring or Upcoming Rappers today... Too bad the duo didn't last after Hi-Jakkk Gloc-9 released 2 Domination album (that's on another issue)..Hi-Jakkk released numerous projects under his Apocalypse Records including his "Solo Album", Then Gloc-9 already released 3 albums and receiving commercial success to this day.. I know a lot of us wanting for the DT or H-G9 reunion.. Let's just hope and wait and see what will happen next for the moment lets' just relieved the days and music of one of the best duo that came out here in P.I... Here's "Gangsta Foe Life" !!!
