Aero - In My City (Official Music Video)
Music Video Director: Massah Gonzales-Gamboa
Director Of Photography: Edwin Jeremy Abanil
Producer: 3rd World Entertainment
I must say, Genius Ears had me on my toes and kudos to the dude! BBRRAAAAP!!
Just saw the video now and just came from playing ball with Genius, and I must say - Genius killed this round. I did my thing, but kudos to all the participating producers for that night! Congrats to Red Alert for putting this together! Wonderful job and as much as its a friendly competition - we take this art seriously. Me and Genius hit off from the start - I already knew how dope he was just from finding out that he made the 2nd beat of the now infamous May Sayad Nga song by Mike Swift! Enjoy this showcase of beats and well great performance from PI's newest loved producer!
“I’m a-I’m a Filipino til I die, til I die,” the “bad” voice repeats as Genius Ears of Paro Paro Beats steps away from the controls and stomps hard at the front of the stage. He dangles his arms and head at the lull of the beat and flexes his neck at the snare in a krump gesture. Children unclasp tiny grips on mothers to commence dance floor bouncing.
At this moment, Genius is the preacher and the audience the eager congregation. On the opposite side of the Battle of the Beats stage, B-Roc with baseball cap low grins and exchanges daps with Genius as the beat flourishes and annunciates like an inspiring sermon.
But tonight is not really a battle. Tonight is a jubilant communion of the faithful.

FROM THE-HNIH BLOG: Chrizo is one of those people that has a clear-cut stand on his goals, beliefs, and values. With that, he is able to thoroughly and effortlessly express himself in an unfiltered manner - whether it be through speech or through his making of music. Nevertheless, he is able to maintain a boy-next-door persona and is highly approachable, even when you're meeting him for the first time. I suppose that's what makes working with him easy breezy. He's serious about music and he knows how to get down to business, but he has you at ease throughout the process.
Chrizo's first studio, The Chop Shop, was set up back in 2003. So for the past 8 years or so, in his home studio, the beat genius was able to produce an array of notable hip hop albums such as: his sought-after mixtape Thinking Man's Hip hop, acclaimed compilation B-Sides, ILL-J's award-winning The Journey & Logic for Reason, and collaboration with Marquiss G.R.A.E. (Greatest Rap Album Ever) to name a few. This year, he felt it was time to expand his horizons with respect to a more formal, business environment, the services/capabilities of his studio, and range of clients. Thus, the establishment of ILLustrious or ILL-Labs.

You heard it, let me address it. Thats a pic of me at B-Side.
While the scene will remain colorful - it is the push to make it an industry that remains the number one hustle for everyone sharing the city. To become an industry we need to pump in investments, innovation and partnerships - after all, this is what we are all trying to do. Our self expression cannot just be sustained in the scene. The art of developing this scene into an industry comes with dicsipline, hard work, timing and relevance over significance. How do I know? I don't - I think it is imperative that we treat it with such, so we can slowly mature from a scene into an industry.
Its not about just getting money, its about being decision makers for the industry we are cultivating.
Last sunday, a friend of mine, Loonie - had his life attempted on by some random dude. Somebody tried to stab him at a Watawat Clothing event. The details are vague and emotions are thrown around, both with pride and anger. Both with disillusions of triumph and irresponsibility. As you very well know, I'm part of the people involved in brokering Loonie's deal with Sony - I've also spoken casually to all labels regarding Loonie's upcoming album - regarding everyone who has product in the pipeline. And told them hiphop is riding heavy on Loonie's attempt at the corporate structure hiphop was still to lead.
Trust me when I say, we've crafted classic songs for the fans for his upcoming album -- but you see, somebody put an attempt at his life. These songs we've made could've been sang differently if the person succeeded in hurting him. There was also a possibility of losing Loonie to the violence intended for him to receive.
How much is your hiphop worth? We all say we'd die for it. We'd all question each others ways and bump heads - but really, such a passion worth dying for isn't worth killing for. Read it again, those two things aren't the same. We also say, we can't live without it - and yet our decision making for hiphop has always been distracted by keeping it real.
We are humans, bound by our own contradictions - we say Peace to depict we are on top of the situation (there is no "Peace unto you too" in hiphop), and not just because we had really implied peace to everyone. Hiphop is in a test of maturity, the ability to have fun while being clever and to accomplish more than what the next guy did - boils down to keeping it proper. We have personalities to keep, characters to attract, goals to attain.
Our mere campaigns against people - we've seen it over the years, we've seen recent ones - and we've always left it to be dealt with in the streets. The streets dont have manners and the streets forget. None of the immediate glory the street provides depicts the whole story.
Some would call it karma - which in the end will rob you off the best things in the world if you dont put a clamp on it.
Hiphop in the Philippines isn't about taking over, its about contributing to the whole. Loonie is a piece of the whole. What news are we willing to contribute to the world behind him; rallying us to 20 million views on YouTube, skill level un-matched, possibilities countless - and an upcoming single to hit the radio soon. I'm appalled by the attempt on his life and just violence as a whole. There is no sense in glorifying it and say - its the rapper life.
And while the person who attempted on Loonie's life still remain at large, we still live out the attempt to succeed in changing perspectives. Ignorance is a gift we all consume, how do we not know that we are all responsible for each other at the end of the day?
Stop worrying what others are doing against you. Stop thinking you're that little to result to violence. Stop thinking you can't accomplish things without violence. Stop making a reputation, but start building a foundation around a scene where you want your kids to flourish in and be proud of. Stop thinking something great will come out of bullshit situations.
Keeping it real should always take a backseat to keeping it proper.
Who am I mad at? Start pointing fingers already Bong.
I'm mad at the person who tried to stab Loonie. Do I know the person? No. Do I know if it was a job asked by another person? No.
Life is short. I'm writing this to implore and invoke confidence in people, that violence in hiphop - is uncalled for. I'm already guilty by association through some peoples eyes - read with bias if you must. But I will make a post today - and I'm inviting you to share it at 4pm today. Explore your Facebooks, Twitter pages and be catalysts of hiphop.
Do right by right.
Who else to defend this shit but us?
Trending is different from acting in relevance.

As we await the finalization of his debut full length release, we give you FiveSongsOnly EP. This is a collection of songs from his sessions before signing with Turbulence. This idea was brought about by 6000 Goonz x Gloc 9's independently released "Limang Kanta Lang" - and as you know Aero is a representative of 6000 Goonz and decided to honor that by carrying on tradition. Tracks produced by The Beatmonx and one from myself.
Enjoy this free download of the week kids! Post and repost!
