Shanti Dope had already established himself as one of the most exciting names in Filipino music with early hits like “Nadarang,” “Apoy,” and “Norem.” But the 20 year-old rapper truly exploded into the mainstream when he came out with “Amatz.” The song might initially sound like a glorification of inebriation and hedonism but it’s actually rooted in spirituality and mysticism.

In this episode of OG's OPM series, Shanti Dope talks about how he came up with the song, breaks down preconceived notions about it, and the absolute thrill of hearing it played in an international Marvel-produced TV show The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
