Dice & K9/ Moobstarr
Dice and K9 or better known in the HipHop community as Mobbstarr is a hip-hop collective composed of producers, rappers and a singer. Formed in 2002, the group first enjoyed mainstream success with their smash hit Itsumo which propelled their second album entitled Mobbstarr to hip-hop royalty status. Their first album Mobb Music which was released exclusively in Cebu made enough noise for them to be noticed by industry giants like Warner Music . Songs like The Scenario and Itsumo impressed them so much that they decided to offer a distribution deal for Dice and K9/Mobbstarr’s second album to be distributed nationwide and in some parts of Asia as well. The group packed their bags and headed off to Manila to start promoting and touring. Even nominated for 2004 MTV Asia awards for Favorite Group which was held in Indonesia. Itsumo became a household name as it stayed in the radio charts for weeks and weeks. It was even one of the most downloaded ringtones in 2003 - 2004 as it resonated all throughout the year with its catchy bass-line and infectious hook. They bagged awards for 2003 Song of The Year in Davao and Cebu, Best Rap Group in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Annual Hip-hop Awards in 2005, 2006 and 2007, “THA JOURNEY” of DiCE and k9 MOBBSTARR is said to be the most expensive album the group has ever had.

Added info: first Hiphop group that released an album under Cebu City's 6000 Goonz Label... Before Dice & K-9 became popular here and abroad... Their group was called Anthill Mobb which is composed of K-9, Pain & Dice...They've been makin' & sellin their music independently in Cebu... The trio released there first album in 1996 entitled "Modus Operandi" and followed it up in 2000 with their Album "All Art is A Game with & Fight Against Chaos" and it is also the year that the group and 6000 Goonz roster was featured in "Vibestation's Urban MYX"... where everyone became aware of the growing Hiphop scene in Cebu... In the said episode... their first music video "21st Century" from their second album was aired... But after the album "Pain", they went on hiatus... A couple of years they were reborn as Dice & K9, and they took over the airwaves with their Mega-Hit "Itsumo"... Then the rest is history...
