Francis Magalona (October 4, 1964 - March 6, 2009), also known as FrancisM, Master Rapper, and The Man From Manila, was
a Filipino rapper, songwriter, producer, actor, director, and photographer. Often hailed as the "King of Pinoy
Rap", he was considered a legend in the Philippine music community. With the success of his earliest albums, he was
the first Filipino rapper in the Philippines to cross over to the mainstream. He is also credited for having pioneered
the merging of rap with Pinoy rock, becoming a significant influence to artists in that genre as well. He was also a
television host on MTV Asia and on noontime variety television show Eat Bulaga! Magalona died seven months after being
diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia. The Philippine government has announced that Magalona will be posthumously
awarded the Presidential Medal of Merit, for his contributions in promoting patriotism through music.
