It’s been a while since we’ve featured our #ONEMUSICian of the week. And since we’re on the hip-hop trend, it’s time to introduce this week’s pick: Ex-Battalion!
Originally formed in 2012, members Bosx1ne, Flow-G, Skusta Clee, Brando, Emcee Rhenn, King Badger, Flip-D, Jomar Lovena, Reid Villavicencio, KentMNL, Mckoy, Hudass, Jekkpot, Cent, Jnske, Bullet-D, and [now solo artist] JRoa have carved their way to success, especially after the release of hit singles “No Games” and what became a viral anthem, “Hayaan Mo Sila,” gaining over 250 thousand Youtube hits!
Since then, Ex-B has guest starred on television shows, appeared on the movie screen, held major concert, and is now managed by actress and comedian, Ai Ai Delas Alas, making them one of the most successful mainstream hip-hop collectives in the country. As the group ascended in the music charts, Ex-Battalion's growing popularity has helped put the local hip-hop scene in the spotlight causing a refreshing shift in Original Pinoy Music that we know today.
So what’s next for Ex-B? We know for sure they’re gearing up for the One Music PH Digital Concert Series happening on October 20th called “FRESH: Filipino Rappers Elevating the School of Hip-Hop” which will feature fellow hip-hop artists Al James, Third Flo’, and 727 Clique.
This event is brought to you by One Music PH, co-presented by Upplause Events.
