Just like the other Filipinos, I join them as the nation mourns and deeply saddened by the death of the Mother of Philippine Democracy. She was brave just like her beloved husband Ninoy. She was also a hero and a freedom fighter, a mother to us all. As you cross the road to heaven, may you please send my regards to the Father of Philippine Hiphop. Goodbye Madame Cory. Thanks for Freedom and Democracy. — madshock
Few days ago, DJ MOD sent his concerns and wishes for a speedy recovery for the former president. Touched and greatful, Ms. Kris Aquino asked him to remake this song “Yellow Ribbon” before TITA CORY passed away.
Calling upon the talents of Kix of Saia to sing the song, D-Coy and J.O.L.O. to drop a few bars and Pikaso to co-produce the track.
With a gut feeling friday night (July 31, 2009) DJ MOD felt there was a need of urgency to get the song recorded and finished. DCOY and JOLO got into the recording both at PIKASO’s studio, that very same night and got the vocals to DJ MOD. Once the song was finished,in the early hours of Saturday Morning, DJ MOD got word our Nation’s greatest president had passed.
Please keep TITA CORY in your prayers and enjoy the song.
“Throw your L’s up, get it hella high/ yellow ribbons gettin’ tied, doves already set to fly// this is for our people, this ain’t for AUTHORITY/ this is for our freedom, this is for DEMOCRACY…J.O.L.O
please excuse the video. we just wanted to get the song out there on the www. we have a much more meaningful video up soon. We would like to also thank to Calavera Comics for the people power art work.
REST IS PARADISE!
Corazon C. Aquino
