A Salute to Francis Magalona

Yesterday we lost a great man in the music industry, a great man who was also known as The Man from Manila, the Master Rapper.

Francis Magalona also known as FrancisM, a prominent Filipino rapper, songwriter, producer, actor, director, and photographer. Often hailed as the "King of Pinoy Rap", he was considered a legend in the Philippine music community.

With the success of his earliest albums, he was the first Filipino rapper in the Philippines cross over to the mainstream. He is also credited for having pioneered the merging of rap with Pinoy rock, becoming a significant influence to artists in that genre as well. He was also a popular television host, notably on MTV Asia where he served as one of the channel's first Filipino VJs, and on noontime variety television show Eat Bulaga!.

Francis Magalona died on March 6, 2009 at the age of 44 due to acute myelogenous leukemia.

For me he is the only pinoy rapper whose music is worth listening and his music is the only rap music that shows true patriotism to his country

His great legacy will forever be in our hearts...
Rest in peace Master Rapper
