2012–2014: JuliElmo and breaktrough
Magalona appeared on GMA Network's variety show Party Pilipinas as a regular performer and host. Aside from being known as the "Heir of Rap," he is also known as the other half of the popular musical tandem, "JuliElmo" side by side with his partner, Julie Anne San Jose, an experiment-gone-successful of the Sunday noon show. They have collaborated in several YouTube videos, currently having more than a million views. He was included in the cast of Tweets For My Sweet in 2012.

In May 2013, Magalona, in collaboration with Oishi, released a remake of a famous song by his dad, and renamed it "Kaleidoscope World Forever More". The remake featured his duet with the late master rapper. A music video was also created, with certain modifications and inserting Elmo digitally to the original Music Video.
