Gloc-9 - Upuan feat. Jeazelle of Zelle

Gloc-9 Matrikula

The fastest rapper from the Philippines, Gloc-9 has released his long awaited 4th album entitled Matrikula which means "tuition fee". Matrikula is a follow-up album to his 3rd album Diploma.

The first single from Matrikula is a politically-charged song called Upuan which features Jeazelle from the alternative-pop-rock band Zelle. The word Upuan means "chair" or "seat". In this song, Gloc-9 is rapping about the corrupt political situation in the Philippines, where there is an enormous income disparity between the Filipino government and the destitute citizens of the Philippines and the government has not done anything to reform or alleviate the situation.

The music video for Upuan has already premiered on June 29 but I could not find it uploaded anywhere on the internet.... so here's a teaser of the music video that I'll post here for now and I'll post the music video for Upuan when someone finally uploads it.

As you can see in the video, there's a lot of symbolism in it. I can't wait to see the actual video!
