I was so saddened by the death of the Master Rapper, Francis Magalona. I never thought that I will be so affected by his passing, it was so heart breaking. Francis lived a good life. He was the only rap artist who survived mainstream because back in the early 90s, hip hop music wasn’t totally embraced by many Filipinos. I remembered listening to him at 89 DMZ, an FM radio station that plays hip hop and rap music 24/7, he was then called The Mouth. I am so proud to say that I am one of the many bloggers who followed his blog over at multiply. I read his posts whenever I need strength to go about my problems. Francis’ blog is like his love letters to his readers. His posts showed braveness and love for life.
Francis Magalona, for sure, wouldn’t want to be considered a superstar, but instead, he is the Wild Boy, The Free Man of Manila who cries “Mga Kababayan Ko”! … We salute you Sir Kiko!
