Top 10 Fliptop Rap Battle Emcees in The Philippines
These emcees have shaped the rap battle in the country.

Alaric Riam Yuson founded the FlipTop Rap Battle League (Fliptop) in 2010, establishing it as the pioneering and biggest professional rap battle conference in the Philippines. Drawing inspiration from renowned Western rap battle leagues such as Grind Time Now (US), King of the Dot (Canada), and Don’t Flop (UK) that emerged in 2008, FlipTop became a catalyst for the creation of battle leagues worldwide. In line with this, I have listed the top 10 fliptop rap battle executives in the Philippines.

10 Best Filipino Fliptop Rap Battle Emcees

  1. Bassilyo


    Lordivino Ignacio, better known as Bassilyo, was born on December 11, 1977 (age 46), is a Filipino rapper. Bassilyo draws inspiration from the character Basilio in the novel Noli Me Tangere. Additionally, Bassilyo occasionally showcases his acting skills.

    During the early 1990s, as Hip-hop blossomed in the Philippines, Lordivino “Deyb” Ignacio (aka Bassilyo) emerged as a notable figure. He was a member of the renowned rap group called Crazy as Pinoy, which gained recognition for their exceptional talent and participated in Eat Bulaga!’s Rap-public of the Philippines contest in 2002.

Sinio, widely recognized as “Mr. Crowd Favorite,” exhibited an exceptional talent for humor, captivating audiences with his quick wit and astute banter.

    Shernan was born on October 2, 1987 (age 36). One of Shernan’s strongest losers was BLKD, but Flict-G allegedly wrote him down, saying he would win. Therefore, he became one of the idols of the masses, celebrated for his compelling delivery and powerful wordplay that resonated with the audience. He is a rapper who always impersonates famous personalities and anime in costumes.

  7. Zaito


    He is just one of the best funny emcees in flip-top Battles. Zaito was born on May 11, 1979 (age 45) and lives in Las Piñas, Metro Manila. Reppin at Vigilante Family and South Radical Production, while some claim that he is unworthy of battling again in FlipTop due to his defeat against Loonie, it is indeed true that he faced a loss.

  8. BLKD


    BLKD is the profoundly poetic open book by Lonnie. Tipsy D’s idol and one of the top 5 rappers, he ensures that she doesn’t make it into your top 5. His style is provocative and preachy, characterized by double entendre, powerful punchlines, and crystal-clear delivery.
