Bronze P, the Son of Ilonggo Rap

RnB and rap musician Bronze P of La Paz, Iloilo City is an independent Ilonggo artist under his own production label, Bronze Beats. His musical influences are 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Eminem, G Unit, Usher, Kanye West, and Ill Pride.

His career started at the age of 14 with making beats at HandyPlus Computer Center at LaPaz, Iloilo City (now known as Netbench Studios) using E-Jay Music Creator in PS2.

At 15, in High School, he and his buddies Jaylord Galve and Emmanuel Carlo "Mico" Peñalosa started listening to rap music in their pastime, with G Unit's "Beg for Mercy" as their favorite CD. Influenced by 50 Cent, he was inspired to make his own music and he discovered his passion for it.

At the age of 16 in College, he met Mouth 3, the Godfather of Ilonggo Rap, who is also a producer and the King of the underground rap group called Southsyd Souljaz. Mouth 3 produced the debut CD of Bronze P called Da Underdogs. Even though he didn't make it to the Southsyd Souljaz due to schedule conflicts, he and R-Nic, a member of Southsyd Souljaz, decided to make their own duo group called IDS (Ilonggo Dyad Souljaz). He acted as a producer and produced their own records.

In 2006, the duo made a rap jingle for Mang Inasal. Fortunately, the jingle was approved by the CEO and is currently playing in the airwaves. The duo then decided to put up their own studio which is now known as Netbench Studios. Alas, due to some personal issues, he and R-Nic went on separate ways.

Like R-Nic, Bronze P is now a solo artist and makes his CDs independently. He also produces beats for other Ilonggo artists such as R-Nic, Paramour Sifee, R-Dawn, and Sayuke Clan, to name a few.
