As a Filipino who grew up into Hip Hop culture, I always make sure to show love to Filipino Hip Hop artists who are actually pretty damn good. Let’s face it, Hip Hop has become universal and it’s a beautiful thing.
Today, I came across a video from an artist by the name of Fe Raw who, like myself, is a young Filipina. Repping the Bay Area and making frequent trips to New York City, Fe Raw, is steadily expanding her fan base. Like most up and coming rapper stories, Fe Raw pursued Hip Hop independently; no label backing, no management. And even with the lack of professional support, she still managed to open up for artists such as 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar and Nicki Minaj.
Currently, she is working on her “Classick” EP. Her “Thrilla From Manila” mixtape is available here.
