Don Pao first made an impact in 2017 after joining Bahay Katay’s tournament and eventually winning the championship. He finally made his FlipTop debut in December 2021 at Ahon 12, the year’s biggest event. The Shots Fired Kartel representative faced Zaki in a widely-acclaimed match. Don Pao won the battle with his trademark calm delivery and impressive mix of gun bars and solid punches.
Apart from battle rap, Don Pao is also a force to be reckoned with on the music side. He has released various tracks and music videos, all of which gained huge numbers on YouTube. The MV for “Pera in this Bitch”, which features him, Kris Delano, Tiny Montana, and Pricetagg, has now exceeded 2 million views.
