This photo of Gloc-9, Flow G and Michael Pacquiao has left fans speculating that a music collaboration may be in the works.
In a recent Instagram post, rap star Gloc-9 (real name: Aristotle Pollisco) shared a photo of him with the Ex-Battalion member Flow G and boxing champ Manny Pacquiao’s second child and rookie rapper Michael.
“Kahapon Bukas at Ngayon!!!” Gloc-9 captioned the photo with the hashtag #makatasaPinas, possibly referring to the generations they belong to in the hip-hop music scene.
Netizens in the comments section were quick to speculate that the three artists are cooking up something for their fans.
“Wow nangangamoy collab to ah,” one commented.
“May aantayin ba kami dyn idol🔥,” asked another.
“This would be lit. Long live Pinoy Hip-hop! 🔥🔥🔥,” another said.
Gloc-9 is known for mentoring and collaborating with the younger breed of rappers.
But in a private message to The STAR’s Latestchika.com, Thea Gomez-Pollisco, manager of Gloc-9, said that there are no talks yet of a collaboration. She added that the photo came from when the three performed at the recently-held 6th Wish Music Awards at the Araneta Coliseum.
“Wala pa naman po napag-usapan. Magkaka-prod sila sa Wish Music Awards kaya magkakasama sila sa dressing room sa Araneta,” said Pollisco.
Gloc-9 won as Artist of the Year and Hip-Hop Song of the Year for ABAKADA featuring Mark Beats, while Michael took home the Wishclusive Hip-hop Performance of the Year award at the said event.
Gloc-9 has already worked with Flow G on the song Halik, the Wish Bus performance of which has over 50 million views to date.
But he had something to say about Michael, who previously trended online for his performance of original track Hate, as well as the song Pacman with fellow rap artist Michael Bars.
Gloc-9 said of Michael in a direct message: “Na-impress ako dahil pwede nya i-impose kung sino sya pero napaka-simple at napaka-magalang. Halata mong maayos ang pagpapalaki.”
