A fierce lyricist and tactician. The head honcho. The commanding general of the hip hop fleet known to many as the 187 MOBSTAZ.

"as long as we happy on what we do, fuck the fame… as long as I do what I wanna do, as long as I say what I wanna say… there’s nothing anybody can do about it, that’s what democracy is for. Same goes for rap music."

ESSE aka MARKANG BUNGO
Born Domingo De Guzman, gun runner, thug, emcee, lyricist and street poet. He thrives on transforming his street experiences to songs that captivate the ears of those who are living the same life that he has.

BADANG
Born Darwin Ferineza, lyricist, composer, technician, producer, director and graphic artist. An emcee who has two sides in his repertoire, you can piss him off and he would beat you down the ground with a barrage of verbal attacks or you can be on the other end of his sweet serenades.

TUGLAKS
Born Joren Machan, a lyricist with one of the fastest tongues whenever he blesses the microphone. Loves to ride on melodic patterns on the beats that he laces words on.
