    Why is it that all news about Mindanao are negative? Can’t we find peace in this Land of Promise?
    Being born and raised in the South Cotabato in Southern Mindanao, I tried to answer the questions and pray to raise awareness and answers to this age-old conflict thru many ways, and one of these is thru hiphop music.

    It’s not about religion. It’s about misunderstanding and the attitude of not trying to understand other people. The real battle to fight is within the confines of our minds.
