Welcome to this YouTube hotshot’s comfort zoneBy Bayani San Diego Jr.
It’s a rare occurrence for a YoutTube hotshot, especially one with over 20 million hits and counting, to open up, not only his private space, but also his mind and reveal facets of his creative process.
Award-winning rapper-musician Abra, or Raymond Abracosa in real life, is the first to admit that he straddles two worlds.
He lives in a quiet subdivision somewhere in Pasig, but thrives in the thrilling, underground hip-hop scene.
He generously shares memories of and anecdotes on his journey from private schools to rap battling, which he describes as an “exciting saga.”
He also shows the Inquirer team his various collections: his caps, bonnets, shoes, ballers, shirts, even his fave perfume (Clinique Happy for Men).
He enumerates his favorite books, movies and TV shows, too.
Just an ordinary afternoon chillin’ with Abra.
