BATAS And NORMA LOVE Of TANYA MARKOVA Tackle Human Rights Violations In Online Jam
Buckle up, OPM fans! Batas recently teamed up with Tanya Markova vocalist Norma Love for a hyptonizing online jam.
The back-to-back FlipTop Battle League Isabuhay Tournament Champion has been doing a special project called QUARANTAMANA SESSIONS on his YouTube channel to showcase his musicianship as a prime Emcee and a talented bassist while in quarantine. After teaming up with fellow rappers these past few weeks, Batas had a refreshing jamming session with Norma Love this time.
The Tanya Markova frontman told MYX how their collab came about and what inspired him in writing his lyrics which include the lines Ito ba'y kapalaran, walang kapangyarihan / Ito ba'y kapalaran, wala 'kong kasalanan.
"Sir Mark (Batas) sent me a copy of the beat kaya inisipan ko din ng words saka vocal melody. Naisip ko, especially during these frustrating times, 'yung pakiramdam ng isang tao na bigla na lang dinampot na hindi man lang kinilala yung rights nya and he is being cornered. Tapos 'yung fact na iniisip nya na ito ba ng kapalaran niya kaya siya nadampot ng walang kalaban-laban," Norma Love shared.
He also mentioned Batas' line which really moved him. "Ika nga sa verse ni Sir Mark, 'God’s will ba yun o kinulang ba siya sa dasal?'"
