That was the first thing i read/heard when i woke up this morning. It's sad, may he rest in peace, but it also makes us realize we need to start celebrating people's existence when they alive - so let's all start celebrating the lives of Michael Jackson and Prince while they are still with us.

not only is he the most sampled artist in music, but the original break beats are either samples or derivatives of James Browns drum compostions. Thats where the soul of hip-hop comes from. He couln't read or write music, he just knew what was in his heart and what to tell musicians to play. Dude is a true legend.

Whats crazy is I just saw him perform at the UK hall of fame awards where he was inducted a few weeks ago, dude still had it over 70. Trust there will be tribute mixtapes.

JB crossed every cultural divide imagineable. Ever see a wedding dancefloor when JB is thrown on the decks?? Sex Machine? What more can I say...

Rest in Peace Godfather.
