Philippine Rap has once again proved itself one proud genre of the OPM as well-known group Lyrically Deranged Poets (LDP) released a music both relevant in lyrics and video today.
In their new video, “Poor Country”, LDP showed Alex, Rjay and Abra trying to fight lawbreakers but they ended up being killed by such. They portrayed how in real life, people with good intentions, serving justice and fighting for what is right, gets killed with injustice.
