Loonie and Ron Henley of Stick Figgas, Alex Omiunu, Rjay Ty & Abra of Lyrically Deranged Poets (LDP) are among some of the country’s successful hiphop artists today and leaders in the world of viral marketing in social media. These artists united and headlined Artifice Unplugged, an event that gave hiphop fans impressive performances last Saturday night, August 16 at the Music Museum.
Quest was one of the special guests of the night who opened the show with his soulful vocals in his gentle rendition of “Kaleidoscope.” He also joined Loonie in their hit “Tao Lang” during the latter part of the show.
Pinoy R&B stars Thyro Alfaro and Yumi Lacsamana belted out their 2011 hit song, “Kiss (Never Let Me Go)”. They also sang their original composition and Philpop 2013 Grand winner “Dati” along with Quest.
Artifice Records delivered with their promise to bring back their artists with their classic hits that fans have grown to love. Artifice Records has created standards in the urban scene, showcasing a different light and serving music fans with something new to the taste.
LDP and Stick Figgas exhibited badass performances with their cleverly arranged rap hits.
The powerhouse trio, Loonie, Ron Henley and Abra, performed their famous collaboration rap song “Cerberus” that mirrored them as the three-headed monster of today’s local hiphop scene. Individually, they set the fire onstage singing their hit songs. The audience ate it up and showed them love by rapping and singing along with the artists. Abra and Loonie performed “Diwata” and “Abante” respectively, a music video of which will be out soon.
