That was how Julia described the Eat Bulaga crowd when Francis Magalona, the Philippines' Master Rapper, performed again on the stage, on October 25, 2008, after being away for 85 days because of his battle against cancer.

There couldn't have been a more appropriate word then. It was a good five-minute production number he shared with Pupil's Ely Buendia, wherein they sang, Superproxy, one of my favorite E-head songs. He was featured in that song as the guest rapper. That was the best rendition of Superproxy.

You can feel the zest the guy had for his craft, wherever he is, whatever he does - whether he is into rap, or into blending rap with rock, or into photography, or into trying to uphold our nationalism as a Filipinos. Zest would be too mild a word, not even closer.

Francis M. will be terribly missed.
