As we commemorate the fifth death anniversary of the Master Rapper Francis Magalona, MYXph.com takes a look back at his iconic music career.
Francis Durango Magalona, more fondly called as Francis M., Master Rapper, The Mouth and The Man From Manila is one of the iconic artists in the Philippine music industry. In fact, he was the first Filipino rapper that crossed over to the mainstream scene. He is known to be the man and mind behind the merging of rap and Pinoy rock.
In 2009, the King Of Rap succumbed to a tough battle with leukemia and left the music industry with a long list of hits like his breakout hit, "Mga Kababayan". Other memorable hits include, "Kaleidoscope World", "Ito Ang Gusto Ko", "Mga Praning" and "Meron Akong Ano".
He has also lent his talent to some memorable collaborations with other talented OPM artists like Ely Buendia, Gloc-9 and Parokya Ni Edgar.
