MANILA – It looks like a battle is already set between Filipino rapper Loonie and Russian rapper Oxxxymiron.
Loonie made the announcement when he did a Facebook live broadcast last Friday, the video of which has already been viewed more than 320,000 times as of writing.
“Tuloy na tuloy na 'yung laban namin ni Oxxxymiron. Hindi siya mangyayari dito sa Pilipinas, hindi rin sa Russia,” he said.
The “Respeto” star said they have yet to decide where to hold the showdown but they are eyeing to stage it in the United States.
“Target namin na sa US siya magaganap dahil mas malaki 'yung press na makukuha namin and karamihan ng press na nag-i-invite para makuha yung battle namin is from US,” he said.
Loonie likewise mentioned that they will probably guest on Shade 45, Eminem’s radio station, to promote the showdown.
According to ABS-CBN’s music channel MYX, this is not the first time Loonie is going up against a foreign rapper.
In 2013, he did a showdown with Los Angeles-based rapper Dizaster.
