Local HipHop Bacolod

ARTIST OF THE MONTH: AUGUST - SixTheNorthstar WEEK 1












Last Month was a  good start for Moflow having Dhublly as The Artist of The Month,
now this time the long wait is finish, we got a new artist who surely dig ya bones out,
man behind the Quantum Galactic Leap, behind the name of Matt Murdock and 
the man who influenced a lot of local artist in bacolod, Six The North Star...






MOFLOW:


Okey, lets start , first question why 6theNorthstar? 




6 The NorthStar:


 I used to be a part of this group called "Archonz Akeen" which included D-cal, Plazma, Rambling Man (aka Cameltoe to some people), chec, Konshuss (aka Marlowe) and some other emcees




MOFLOW:


So how did you created or like name your self as 6thenorthstar? where does the name come from? for what reasons?


6 The Northstar:

I got the name Six (it was spelled Syxx before) as a reference to the japanese Super Sentai standard that I believed was only made up of 5 people
then a sixth person would come in as the "last person" it was a reference to that, being the "background" person or the
"last person to come in"

Six The Northstar was actually the name given to me by AMPON's Chyrho when we where doing a track for his solo album
 I used to reference this old Anime "Fist of the Northstar" on my verses, during the recording, he just flipped my name to Six The Northstar
hahaha I used it from then on.. referring to the 6th day as mans creation in the bible and and for me just means balance of good and evil...
 and the northstar as "guidance"

hahah that shit was hella long haha


MOFLOW:


Hahaha ayus lang, That explained everything,  haha so it means that Archonz was a part of AMPON? back in what year you started making music with them?


Six The Northstar:


Yeah, Archonz had been around before AMPON... during my highschool days.. but when we had that invitation to merge with artists like Dialect (NothingElse and Abnormalities aka Tunkod), Epical, Caliph8, B-roc, Arkane, Psylent, NImbus9, and Marquiss... We took that opportunity to get out there to make music and learn from them as well


we started making music around 2003  as members of AMPON.




MOFLOW:


Hahahah Indeed i'm Also working editting video here haha but, Wow, thats a hell of history man, tsk tsk tsk... Who were the persons who influenced your type of music? International Artist, Lokal Cats? any of your family? 


Six The Northstar:

  Aside from the people I grew up with musically... well  alot of things man, I'm a 90s kid, so it's Wu-Tang Clan and Gangstarr! jazz shit from Sun Ra, Parliament, Sly and the Family Stone, Billie Holiday... we can go on with this

locally? I grew listening to  Francis M, Sun Valley Crew, Masta Plann and of course Pamilya Dimagiba..

my parents were musicians themselves, and were in a band during the folk rock movement in the philippines... I guess I kinda have music in me ever since


MOFLOW:


Great, so thats why when you sing, you can surely hit the right notes? hahaha, 
Reading your answers made me think that your really hooked up with Hiphop music, So sir can you discribe Hiphop in your own words?






Six The Northstar:

 what singing?? haha Hiphop? its the intricate culture consisted of 4 elements (Djing, Bboying, Emceeing and Graffitti)... Djing is the music, emceeing as it's poetry, Bboying as it's form of dance and graffitti as painting. HipHop has been at the forefront of voicing out social injustices and always had been the underdog, even if it would seem that the media or industry had abused it...
 or it has been in forefront of music charts... the culture is still around... its universal like that...
my purpose? as an artist, I just wanna put out my music out there, you know what I mean? I also wanna know how far I can push my art, playing around with possiblities and potentials... if it sounds good to my ear, I'll put it out.. if it sounds good to some people, it'll be a plus for me




MOFLOW: 


The usual answer of a hiphop artist! hahaha, can you tell the readers of this blog what were the sudden changes of Hiphop Culture/music back from your day and to this present time can you differentiate it for them? 


WAIT!, before everything else, that question will be answered for Moflow Artist of the Month with 6 the northstar on his 2nd Week

but before we end, any promotion sir?

6 The Northstar:


       watch out for Plazma's Genocid Journals this october 31st, I got some work for God dem's project.. Murder Death Kill in full effect, Brooklyn's Supa, Fresh Coast's Oddflip etc., Dhublly and AMPON's Anygma and Labjaxx Genocide
a couple of things lined up that I'm still confirming with this crew from New York.. hopefully it pushes through
 thanks for moflow for giving a damn about my music.. and to the people who continue to tolerate my music haha
