Rest In Peace Master Rapper

The Philippine Master of Rap, Francis Magalona 44, died of Leukemia at 12 noon yesterday. Francis M. was the one who gave birth to Pinoy RAP when his song "Mga Kababayan" was launched in 1990. He was an extraordinary artist because he's not only great as a musician but also as a graphic artist. He also engaged himself in photography. His artistry, be it in music or graphic designs even on the designs of the shirts he made showed his pride as a Filipino. Most of his works are showcased in his blogs entitled a Free Mind and FrancisM's Happy Battle where he also put into writing his battle against leukemia.

Personally, the news deeply saddened me. When I was a kid, me and my brothers actually sang some of his songs in unison. And I always remember my big brother, Alex, singing Francis' famous song Kaleidoscope World. He is a big loss to the music industry. He was a role model to everybody especially the youth.

I got a video below from youtube which is a tribute to Francis M.

May you rest in peace Master Rapper...

I thought he was getting better. He's so young , but I guess we really don't when is our time. We just have to make sure that we are ready.

This is a very sad news. This is a good reminder to all of us that life is indeed short and we have to treasure every living moment.
