Def Jam Philippines returns with “Puso At Diskarte”


Def Jam Philippines, considered as one of the most respected record labels in the country, returns with a game-changing posse cut featuring some of the most important rap acts of our time.

Puso At Diskarte,” the first single off the label’s second compilation EP, RHAPSODICITY, brings together veteran and rising Filipino hip-hop artists such as ASTRO of Owfuck, ZARGON, HONCHO of Ex-Battalion, DCOY (Wakin Burdado) of Madd Poets, MIKE KOSA of 187 Mobstaz, PRICETAGG and LAYZIE FU of 4 East Flava on the same page—each offering distinct expertise and star power to the mix.

Produced by CURSEBOX, the anthemic banger delivers show-stopping verses that set the bar high for hip-hop collaborations, and massive, titanium-grade beats that blur the boundaries between gangsta rap and contemporary urban music. 

According to Allan Mitchell “Daddy A” Silonga, A&R Senior Manager of Def Jam Philippines, “Puso At Diskarte” started out as a concept which aims to gather hip-hop icons from different affiliations and groups within the community. “With the help of Dcoy, we’ve messaged them one by one, and explained to them the vision behind the project,” the label honcho shares in a statement. “We’ve always wanted to foster dream collaborations that push the envelope in terms of artistry and impact, and produce an iconic music video to complement the bigness of the idea. ‘Puso At Diskarte’ not only shines the spotlight on grander themes in hip-hop, but also elevates it as an art form and a cultural force.” 

Lyrically speaking, the all-star collab track documents the struggles of every hip-hop artist involved in the project and how they managed to survive the odds through determination, commitment, and hard work. All the participating artists penned their parts, with Daddy A co-writing some of the verses and the bridge. This exchange of ideas resulted into a compelling rap tune that fosters a sense of community and teamwork, honoring what Def Jam stands for in the first place both as a label and as a pioneering hip-hop dynamo.

“Puso At Diskarte” serves as the maiden track off Def Jam Philippines’ collaborative EP, RHAPSODICITY, which is touted as a “lyrical EP.” The upcoming compilation will also feature tracks such as the propulsive jam “Lahing Maangas,” the lyrical heavyweight “Diversity,” the future smash “Lakbay,” and the Pino G.-produced “Epic.” 

As Daddy A puts it, “This EP will be remembered because of the lineup of artists and their collaborators. It’s really a miracle specially during this pandemic to put together a massive EP like this. This is gonna be epic!”

HOOK: 

Honcho

‘Wag na ‘wag magbibitaw, luto dapat ‘di hilaw ang iyong hinahain,

Kung ikaw may gusto na isigaw sa mikropono mo dapat lahat ‘yan ipakain.


Samahan mo ng puso at saka diskarte

Wag ka maging tuso, parehas ka palagi.

Dapat lang kampante sa mga sinasabi

Gamitan ng puso at diskarte!



Astro

Hindi na hihinto, mas lalo pang mag-aapoy ahh!

Rookie of the year, purong diskarte ‘to boy!


Mas pinili kong pumera, ‘di manggera

Abot mo ‘yan, kaya ang tibay ng dipensa


May ginto sa kalye, utak negosyante 

para sipagan lang ang hukay, lahat aabante


Basta mag-ingat ka sa gedli, merong pain

Madami diyan nahulog at nakain


Gumalang, namuhunan, sumagad

Unti-unting nabubuo, ‘yan daw plano ni God


Naniwala, nagbabad, diyan sa proseso!

Natutong maghintay, pero may kilos, ‘di pumayag magpapreso


Lalo ‘tong tumibay nung sinamahan ng puso

Kita ko lahat, alam ko sino diyan ang tuso

 

Pero ganon pa man, sunggab pa din, mapagbigay

Kung sinong down na tropa ko, aking isasakay




HOOK: 

Honcho

‘Wag na ‘wag magbibitaw, luto dapat ‘di hilaw ang iyong hinahain,

Kung ikaw may gusto na isigaw sa mikropono mo dapat lahat ‘yan ipakain.


Samahan mo ng puso at saka diskarte

Wag ka maging tuso, parehas ka palagi.

Dapat lang kampante sa mga sinasabi

Gamitan ng puso at diskarte!



Zargon

Check it ang usapan dito ay diskarte 

Samahan mo ng puso para swabe

Pumarehas ng walang inoonse

‘Pag may labis may kasama pang risponde

Dito sa kalye dapat matalas ka 

Laging may bala lalo ‘pag maangas ka

Makisama kung ayaw magkabangas ka

‘Wag mong hanapin ang swerte mamalasin ka

Ano man ang gawin dapat mahalin

Pag-isipan nang mabuti bago harapin

Maniwala ka na kaya mong gawin

‘Wag mong tigilan siguradong may mararating

Galingan mo hanggang sa may mapala

Mga hindi naniwala ay matutuwa

Kapag nadapa ay ‘wag na ‘wag madadala

May bukas palagi upang ating magawa



Mike Kosa

Ginagawang posible ang imposible 

Sa gubat ‘di pwede ang aso, dapat mala-tigre 

Umaga at gabi hinahagilap na ang grasya 

Hanggang ang musika ay makilala na sa Asya


Freestyler na hindi maka-produce ng beat 

‘Di makabili, ang porma ay palaging repeat

Alam kong darating ang araw, relax na sa seat 

Habang naririnig ang hit song namin sa street

At sa kalye na masukal, kumakalakal

Kung gustong tumagal, dapat matuto at maaral

Pakikisama ang kailangan na walang sukbit na bakal

Kitang-kita ang anyo kahit takpan pa ng balabal


Anihan sa lahat ng lupain na pinagpala  

Aminado na may sala at kayo ay nagambala 

Salamat sa suporta at inyong mga tiwala

At ako’y kasama sa inyong tinitingalang tala!



HOOK: 

Honcho

‘Wag na ‘wag magbibitaw, luto dapat ‘di hilaw ang iyong hinahain,

Kung ikaw may gusto na isigaw sa mikropono mo dapat lahat ‘yan ipakain.


Samahan mo ng puso at saka diskarte

Wag ka maging tuso, parehas ka palagi.

Dapat lang kampante sa mga sinasabi

Gamitan ng puso at diskarte!



Dcoy

Kumakaripas sa skyway, switchin’ fo’ lanes

Top down screamin’ out money ain’t a thing!

Focus lang sa game, hustle Lunes hanggang Biyernes

Puno lagi ng pera parang bathtub ni Napoles

We are not the same, I’m a hustla

Ginto ang bawat letra, hindi pwede subasta

Pasukin na natin ang Bangko Central

Para mukha ko ang nasa piso at hindi na si Rizal

Kay Honcho ang Ferrari, ang trip ko Maserati

Sa susunod na paglapag sa hood ay naka-heli

Sanay na ‘ko dumiskarteng mag-isa

May suporta lang ‘pag nagtagumpay ka na

Kaya baguhin mo istilo mo, ‘di na uso pang-apocalypto

Hindi na sa anito, sumasamba sa crypto

Ang tagumpay tinrabaho ko ‘to 

Pausukin ang damo ‘pagkat mayaman na tayo!



Pricetagg

Kapit-patalim para ikaw ay palarin

At laganap ang krimen para meron lang pangkain 

Dito sa ating bansa na buwaya lang kakain

May butas na ang batas ‘pag pera paiiralin 


Pero ‘di ‘to nanahimik kukunin ko ang para sa ‘kin 

Aangat aking bandila kaya lagi n’yong hilain 

Sulat ko parang riseta, ‘di lahat kayang basahin 

Bawat berso ko, gamot para sarili ko buhayin 


Gamit sariling wika sa mga rapper na bano 

‘Wag mo sabihin na makabayan kung nagpapaka-kano 

Gagamitin ang watawat sa kasikatan ay lango 

Kakasinghot mo sa linya kaya ka lang naging pango 


Pinoy Gangsta Rap is back kahit hindi n’yo tanggapin 

Ang nakaukit sa kasaysayan ay ibabalik ko din  

Sumigaw ng himagsikan bago pa ako patayin 

‘Wag hintaying asul pula ay akin nang baliktarin! Eaaaasy!


BRIDGE:

Layzie FU

Diskarte lang ang panglaban

Puso namin ilalaan

Woooh

(Wasakin ang entablado)

Woooh

(Gamit ang mikropono)


Kultura naming kinagisnan

Hirap ng buhay nilampasan

Woooh

(Wasakin ang entablado)

Woooh

(Gamit ang mikropono)


HOOK: 

Honcho

‘Wag na ‘wag magbibitaw, luto dapat ‘di hilaw ang iyong hinahain,

Kung ikaw may gusto na isigaw sa mikropono mo dapat lahat ‘yan ipakain.


Samahan mo ng puso at saka diskarte

Wag ka maging tuso, parehas ka palagi.

Dapat lang kampante sa mga sinasabi

Gamitan ng puso at diskarte!
