Throwback: Tribute To Francis Magalona

3/6/2014 2:04:04 PM

It’s been six years when his untimely death shocked us. Mainstream fans, hip-hoppers, real artists, whoever you are. At least for once you appreciated his KALEIDOSCOPE WORLD under those THREE STARS AND A SUN; when he, a MAN FROM MANILA, wanted a GIRL like you to BE MINE (or should I say, “Be with him”). He really has a WHOLE LOTTA LOVIN' to warm those COLD SUMMER NIGHTS.

Yeah, talk about some kind of ‘reference bars,’ eh?

Here’s the thing. I can’t help but to watch this tribute clip for over and over again. And it’s really good.
Gloc-9 showed his passion right there. What a fitting tribute. Forget the bad-ass move that Andrew E made there. Hip-hop may have that ‘rap battle’ thing to outwit the others; but it doesn’t mean that the culture is meant to be violent.

I’m not a hip-hopper but I do believe in music, that it can bind every human being with love and respect.
Let’s set the shit aside for a while. Here’s Gloc-9, Andrew E, Hi-C, and Ron Henley on this Eat Bulaga special dated March 7, 2009 (Yes, it was a Saturday).

Rest in Peace, Master Rapper. Long live the rap music!
