D-Coy aka. Wakin Burdado is one of the most respected filipino rappers in The Philippines. A member of the group Madd Poets, D-Coy was one of Dongalo Wreckords’ first rap artists. Later on, he joined Chill’s Electric Chair Entertainment and is now part of Madd World Entertainment. D-Coy is also known for his serious and creative lyrics.
From the ghettos of Makati City, Manila comes D-Coy, the rapper extraordinaire and record producer that has a def knack for spewing speedy rhymes in Tagalog, and is proud as heck about it.
"Plastic Age" is D-coy’s first solo project. His group, Madd Poets, has been active in the hip-hop scene for a while now. Impressively, the album, which is full of catchy Taglish songs, also includes collaborations with talented Filipino artists – Jamir Garcia of Slapshock, Boom and Rhada of Kulay, Kyla, Chill and Radioactive Sago’s Lourd De Veyra.
With a panache for fusing beat-conscious rhymes with a wide, sonic canvas ranging from smooth and sexy rhythm and blues to freaked out rap-rock through his collaboration with popular Filipino rap-rock beasts Slapshock, D-Coy has proven that he is more than willing to give almost anything a go just as long as it’s freaky and cool.
A true innovator in the Filipino urban music scene. D-coy won The Most Promising Artist in Asia’s Regional Music Awards 2008 "JunkSounds".
