What is YUOY!?!
Yuoy! is the latest song by the independent Hip Hop group Q-York. Two years ago they heated up the Philippine music scene with their smash hit “Mainit” The song and the music video were definitely memorable and Yuoy! along with it’s music video promises to stir up even more buzz because the message behind the music.
Yuoy! is an expression created by DJ Flavamatikz of Q-York. Having grown up in Queens, New York, Yo! is a familiar expression for Flava. Upon transferring to the Philippines, Flava combined the common Hip Hop expression of Yo! with the tagalog words “yun” and “hoy!” to create “Yuoy!” This expression can take on a multitude of meanings. It can be a greeting, it can be used to express something cool, it represents freedom.
It is this limitless creativity of the concept of “Yuoy!” which serves as an inspiration to OPM and Pinoys in general. For this reason, Project Headshot Clinic, founded by Niccolo Cosme has decided to support Yuoy! and Original Pilipino Music. Say it loud, say it proud…Yuoy!!!
