FlipTop Battle League

FlipTop Rap Battle League (Fliptop for short) is the first and largest running professional rap battle conference in the Philippines founded by Alaric Riam Yuson (known as Anygma) in 2010. The league promotes Pinoy hip hop. FlipTop is heavily influenced by the original rap battle leagues in the West founded in 2008 – Grind Time Now (US), King of the Dot (Canada), and Don’t Flop (UK), which inspired the creation of FlipTop and other battle leagues around the world. The league also branched out into several divisions after its success. The league was currently under the management of self-produced events and artist management company, FlipTop Kru Corp which was established also by Yuson. In line with this, I have listed the Top 10 Fliptop Rap Battle Emcees in The PhilippinesWikipedia

The superb multi has become the idol of most, causing the so-called Loonie Wannabes of Fliptop. With her Multi blow by blow, rhyme by rhyme, hearty personals, humorous lines, generic thoughts, well-constructed lyricism, and solid delivery. The size of its print in the hip-hop culture of the Philippines is undeniable. The right hand of Kiko (Francis Magalona) who shouts is known and idolized by the masses.

  4. Smugglaz


    Smugglaz is the “Multi-Syllabic Machine Gun” of the league. He has proven a lot and one of his achievements is to be champion with Shehyee in the first Dos Por Dos tournament in Fliptop. He is known for his speed rap with heavy bars and jokes with painful punchlines. One of the highlights of his FlipTop career was Team L.A. vs. Team S.S. where they allegedly massacre Lonnie and Abra’s punchlines. One of his knock-out lines was “Man, you are not!”.

  5. Sinio


    The league’s self-proclaimed “Rebuttal Prince”. Sinio was born on October 8, 1991 (age 30) and was famous for being a comedian who jokes. He was also known as a fellow emcee who was not involved in the fight. However, the strength of its crowd is in denial and the so-called “Mr. Crowd Favorite ”Sinio. He was very good at humor, especially because he didn’t have the talent to laugh at the audience, he needed brain skills and a variety of ingredients to make the crowd enjoyable and not crowded, and he maintained that. Aside from the jokes that come in handy he is really good at rebuttals, in fact, he has many rebuttals like the “Time machine” which was very unpredictable when he fought Tipsy and especially against Shehyee, all solid of Sinio’s rebuttal there. 

  6. Shernan


    Dos por Dos champion along with M-Zhayt formed the SM team of both 3GS (their group’s name). It’s unbelievable how good it is in the league. Shernan was born on October 2, 1987 (age 34) a “Shingshang Fu” fan, made fun of and scorned Fongger’s unlucky opponent during their fight which caused him to miss the league. One of Shernan’s strongest losers was BLKD but Flict-G allegedly wrote him down, saying he would win. He was, therefore, one of the idols of the masses, his motives, and loud barriers. He is a rapper who always impersonates popular personalities and anime in costumes. One of the sharp lines of it is “I love visitors, you just don’t!” and then he introduced the “edi shing” that was really trending before

  7. Zaito


    He is just one of the best funny emcees in flip-top Battles. Zaito was born on May 11, 1979 (age 43) and lives in Las Piñas, Metro Manila. Reppin at Vigilante Family and South Radical Production, There are many people saying that he is not worthy to battle again in flip-top because of his defeat against Loonie. Well, it is true he was defeated but one thing is for sure, he will come back with his cool lines. I’ve waited many months to see if Zaito was true to his words, I was surprised that he wasn’t lying about it. In his battle with Silencer, he showed confidence and delivered cool lines. I also found out that he had a sense of humor. In the battle, he caught the attention of the crowd. Even Anygma laughed hard when he heard his funny lines, including other people that watched the battle too.

  8. BLKD


    BLKD is the profoundly poetic open book is by Lonnie. Tipsy D’s idol and in the top 5 of those in your top 5 make sure she’s not in your top 5. The mess right? But in a sense, that was what he said when he fought Tipsy. His style is provocative and preachy with a double meaning and strong punchline and clear delivery. The most legendary when it comes to wordplay. One of his famous lines is the “G Bars” which is really very funny.

  9. Frooz


    Frooz is a Filipino battle rapper from the Philippines. He currently has 23 battles cataloged in the league.
