Fathers of Rap: Michael Jackson

MJ

Since I’m still in a daze from Michael Jackson’s passing yesterday, I’m glad that the homie Ivan from Hip Hop Is Read put together two tribute compilations celebrating the hip-hop music that would never have been possible without the King of Pop.

The first mix is songs sampling MJ’s early career with the Jackson 5 while the second is his more recent work.  I was unaware Luda’s “One More Drink” or Kanye & T-Pain’s “Good Life” sampled MJ, I guess you really do learn something new everyday.

Big thanks to Ivan for doing his part in preserving the legacy of the late, great musical and cultural icon. Check the track list and download link below. Play these and remember – legends never truly die.

R.I.P. King of Pop

So I was planning on doing a track-by-track review of Wu-Tang’s Chamber Music that leaked today, but the news about Michael Jackson’s death sideswiped me.

At this point I’m still in shock that the King of Pop died, so I will leave you with my favorite MJ jam “Billie Jean” while I let it sink in. Maybe I’ll prepare some better, more profound words. Or maybe I’ll just play Thriller on repeat all night whille searching for some.
