Morobeats artist Prophecee makes a powerful statement in his latest spoken word video for “Tuldok” (Period). Shot in the entrance of a Catholic church, the signature one-take visual style of Morobeats serves as the backdrop of a track that waxes poetic about inequality and individual struggles.
He raps, “Di malaman kung may magandang kalagayan na nag aabang sa bawat dadaanan / Pinagmamasdan naka yapak tinatahak kalsadang lubak / buwan ang itutulak bago maka hawak ng tinapay at alak na pansamantalang pang laman lamang sa natatakam na lalamunan.” (You won’t know if the people that pass by you on the street have a great life / Walking on a street filled with potholes / You could move the moon before you could ever hold bread and wine that would only temporarily fill your hungry throat.)
The track is described as a poem that is set to a DJ Medmessiah beat. A Facebook post promoting the visual says, “All of us are just dots in the world.”
