"Wala Pang Titulo" or "No Title Yet" is a debut EP of Ron Henley. So why don't we put a title to it? Well it is the title already and according to Ron Henley himself when asked, he'll just instantly say "None Yet". Title or not Kwento Ni Toto brings this EP to the public and to the readers and hopefully if Ron Henley will agree will get the readers to ask to what title they think would go with this EP. It's quite a playful title to have for a music and for a blog post.
Ron Henley have this EP as his debut but he is no newbie in industry. He started is rapping at the age of 14 and met fellow rapper Loonie who shared the same liking for Eminem's music but basically I hear an influence of the master rapper. Ron and Loonie formed a group called Stick Figgas and joined the 'Rap-public of the Philippines' contest in the noontime show Eat Bulaga and where they met their idol none other than the Philippines' master rapper FrancisM. The late rapper took them under his wings and made them a part of the contest's compilation album. Ron and Loonie eventually explored going solo but still maintaining the group. the first two sings he wrote were "Suicide Note" and "Nandito Lang Ako" in 2006 which was included in "Critical Condition" album followed by "Kwentong Barbero" in 2008 and "Biglang Liko" in 2010. It was through the song "Biglang Liko," which has currently more than 11 million hits on YouTube, made the executives of multi-national label MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines) take notice of this talented artist.
Ron shared that "Lots of people dream to be signed in a major label and I'm happy to be with MCA Music. I believe that if you wnat to be the best, be part of the best."
And finally, Ron Henley has a new EP under his belt which includes "Biglang Liko" featuring Philippine Idol finalist Pow Chavez. It was one Valentines Day when he was inspired to write the song.
"Despite the obvious meaning of the song, you can also actually relate it to life, where the straight road leads you to God but because I'm a sinner, sometimes I go sideways," Ron said.
Also in the album is the track from the "Homegrown Hiphop" which is "Hagdan" featuring Sino Sikat vocalist Kat Agarrado and produced by Klumcee. The song has also earned over a million hits on YouTube.
"I was inspired through the program I was following, the 12-Step of Narcotics Anonymous. One afternoon, I heard Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway To Heaven' and that was where I started to write the song," Ron said.
Other tracks are "Platito", "Venus" featuring Yumi about how looks up to a girl, "Langit" featuring Bea Valera which talks about comparing a girl to heaven and the latest single in the airwaves which is "Atat" featuring Muriel.
All these tracks were inspired to everything that happened in his life.
Ron believes that good hiphop music should be natural, not forced. Just like his idols Eminem and the late FrancisM, he would love for people to relate to his music that he worked so hard for.
