Vice Ganda And Rapper Abra Set Sights On Collaboration

Vice Ganda is set to dip his fingers into hip-hop music with an exciting prospect of collaborating with latest fliptop sensation Abra.

The two made the deal of sorts during Abra's guest appearance on "Gandang Gabi Vice."

It was Vice who initially declared wanting to take part in Abra's fliptop sessions - rap battles that many regard as the modern-day "balagtasan."

"I love you, Abra. Idol talaga kita..." the comedian said.

Abra - whose music video for the single "Gayuma" (featuring Thyro and Jeriko Aguilar) has already hit the nine million mark on YouTube and the top spot on the MYX music channel - of course, did not let the golden opportunity slip by.

"Ako meron akong malupit na single bago pa matapos ang taon. Sobrang lupit ng konsepto nga, feeling ko ito 'yung makakatalo sa 'Gayuma'...

"Sa tingin ko 'pag gustong kumanta ni Vice sa chorus, magiging isang napakalupit na classic na kanta 'to para sa buong Pilipinas," said he.

Their partnership, he proposed, should be an "ex-deal."

"Sasama ako sa kanta mo pero gawan mo rin ako ng kanta," said Vice. To this Abra replied, "Oo naman."

A self-confessed fliptop fan that often spends his nights watching rap artists churn witty freestyle rhymes on YouTube, Vice himself unleashed his fliptop skills with Abra on "GGV."

The box-office funnyman also expressed his excitement over the forthcoming project via Twitter, also on Sunday night.

"Looking forward to a possible collaboration with Abra! He's such a talented rapper. Kyoooot pa in person. Hehehe!" Vice posted.
