At 44, he is very young. At 44 he's an inspiration. At 44 he’s a legend. And at 44 he dies. A short-lived life for someone’s dreaming for a better Philippines, someone who dies promoting motherland.
He may die young but his legacy will forever be remembered. He serves as an inspiration to the new generation – the youth; an inspiration that all classes happily embraced.
He uses his talent through his kind of music to convey and send message to his audience; the essence of nationalism. He made us realized through his music of how lucky we are to have a country so beautiful like the Philippines and to be born being a Filipino – a gift from God that we should be proud of.
An exceptional artist who made history in Philippine music industry after the release of his much-talked about album – YO! A breakthrough album and regarded as the first ever commercially Rap album released in the Philippines. An album that would open new window for Pinoy pop culture – Rap Music. An album that will give new opportunity for young Pinoy Rap and Hip-hop artists.
Mga Kababayan, his most famous from among his pieces became a national anthem to every Pinoy households as it talks about the Pinoy pride and through this song that he was hailed an artist with a cause by the industry.
A cultural icon – truly a Pinoy pride.
Go journey, three stars and a sun will forever shines on you – Francis M.
