Humanap Ka ng Panget! (1991)- Stars Jimmy Santos, Carmi Martin, Nanette Medved, Gelli De Belen, Keempee de Leon/ Introducing Andrew E.

Andrew E. also known as the the King of dirty Rap in the Philippines (the 'E' stands for his last name, Espiritu). Andrew E saw his first glimpse of showbiz as a DJ in a popular club Euphoria. He began his career in December 1990 when he released his first monster hit single "Humanap Ka Ng Panget" ("Look for Someone Ugly"). The combination of his catchy story-telling rap style, irresistible beats, naughty and often hilarious lyrics made him popular & unique in Philippine pop culture.

Andrew’s career branched out as he began to star in comedy films based on his songs. He has more than 28 hit films under his belt. In the mid 1990s, Andrew E founded Dongalo Wreckords for the purpose of discovering and producing new Philippine Rap talents. One popular rap group that got its start with Dongalo is Salbakuta. Their song Stupid Luv became a big hit and was made into a popular movie which also starred Andrew.

Andrew E spent some time in Japan in the late 1990s, performing in clubs and eventually releasing a song in Japanese about the misadventures of a tourist in Tokyo. He is now married and lives in Dongalo, Paranaque City (where his record label was named from) with his wife and son. Andrew is also a certified platinum artist given that he has acquired over 13 albums, each at least 3 times platinum.
In the Filipino rap scene, Andrew has largely contributed to the growth and popularity of tagalog rap, furthermore by introducing a freestyle battle competition which gave aspiring rappers a shot at record deals. He is married to Mylene Yap from Boracay Island and has a son name Fordy and daughter Jassley.
