Francis Magalona Autographed Freeman Lyric Sheet

My Francis Magalona Autographed Freeman Lyric Sheet

Category: Personal


Today is the 40th day since “Master Rapper” Francis Magalona’s death  from acute myelogenous leukemia last March 6, 2009. As a personal tribute, I’m sharing to you guys the items that he gave me, a lyric sheet of his album “Freeman” and a sticker of a product he endorsed. He even autographed them and wrote me a personal note!

I was in third year high school when the album “Freeman” was released in 1995. It was Francis Magalona’s fifth album together with his band Hardware Syndrome and backup singers Evil Stepsisters. I bought a cassette tape and immediately fell in love with the songs. The fusion of rap and rock was seamless in the album. I was also fascinated with the various “samples” and “fillers” used ranging from former president Fidel V. Ramos’ speech to Francis M’s kids talking with each other to Ted Failon introducing Francis M.

However, I was disappointed because the album sleeve does not contain any lyrics. So I wrote to Francis M asking for a lyric sheet. He replied and I was so overwhelmed when he gave the items a personal touch. That’s how cool he is! Even though he was the “King of Pinoy Rap”, he always reach out to his fans to make them happy.

Here’s the autographed sticker.
