Artstrong Artstrong, in his own words, is a record producer-musicianslash-everything. He sees himself as an ageless artist that hails from everywhere. Claiming to be a hybrid rather than a â€œhigh breedâ€? hip-hop artist. After nabbing the 2005 Awit Awards Best Jazz Recording and Best Rap for his single Jazzy Mondays, Artstrong quickly became a sensation in the mainstream scene. With credentials that include fronting for Nas, forming a band with local guitar legend Sammy Asuncion, Artstrong is truly a hard-hitting force in music.
