Death Threat are pioneering gangsta rap artists in the Philippines composed of MCs O.G. Beware,Genecide, Hi-Jakkk, O-Dogg, Gloc-9, Konflick, Phat-L, Dyablo, Sir Scratch and Radical M.K. At a time when party themed tracks dominated Pinoy rap as exemplified by such mainstream artists like Denmark and Andrew E, they released their seminal Gusto Kong Bumaet debut LP which ushered the Philippine hardcore and gangsta rap scene. The group became famous for their song "Gusto Kong Bumaet" which told tales of the daily lives of the young impoverished Filipino youth growing up in the city streets and slum areas. The group went to a duo act(Hi-Jackk/Gloc-9)when Beware left. In 1997, Death Threat released their 3rd album "Kings Of Da Undaground" but it only features Hi-Jakkk and Gloc-9. The album received 4x Platinum Certificate Award despite of having no mainstream promotion and by only word of mouth in the streets. Other singles are "Ilibing Ng Buhay" with Pooch of Ghetto Doggs, "24 Oras", "Kamusta Na", "Babae Ay Minamahal", and "Private Diane" with Ely Buendia and master rapper Francis M. They have released several albums since then and are currently signed to the record label Real Deal Productions.
