Perhaps, a lot of people around the music industry -- regardless of any genre -- would mourn on the loss of a great music icon here in the Philippines. Because he also was one of the pillars of rap music here in the country, enough reason to tell that he's not called as "the pinoy king of rap" or "master rapper" for nothing.
Too bad, he's only 44 years old; and it was definitely a shocker to all the viewers of that noontime show "Eat Bulaga" yesterday noon. And yes, some peeps here in YouTube already made their respective tribute. Indeed, an idol for all the Pinoy music lovers, with those collaborations in different artists such as Ely Buendia of the now-defunct-yet-always-remembered-as-the-best Eraserheads, Chito Miranda and the rest of parokya ni edgar, emerging rap star Gloc-9, just to name a few of them.
A great person will always be remembered. He's one of the best artists the Philippines ever had. So, I guess, Francis M, you're an idol to us; maybe just unfortunate for some if we're not to be able to meet you in person (including yours truly)
Goodbye...may you rest in peace, but keep rocking anyway.
