In Honor to the King of Pop: Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)

Today we lost a Music Icon... a Legend. Michael Jackson passed away this afternoon after going into Cardiac Arrest from a Heart Attack. I literally grew up listening to Michael Jackson. I've always enjoyed his Music and watched old clips from his past videos... Smooth Criminal and Thriller are some of my all-time favorites. I even recall performing in a show in Elementary School as one of the Jackson 5.
I think a lot of today's artists were influenced by his Musical Career from Ne-Yo, Justin Timberlake, to Chris Brown. Although there's a lot of people who adopted his style, Michael's level of talent, passion, and innovation is unmatched.
This is a man who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice! He received 13 Grammy Awards, 13 Number One Singles in his Solo Career and the sales of over 750 million albums worldwide.
Aside from the music, he was a great Humanitarian! When a lot of people reach a certain level of success, they tend to become worse as a person. That was not the case with Michael... I recall when the tabloids were bashing him and the media scrutiny over the trail situation, and how Christ-like Michael remained throughout it all... I respect him for that and I know for a fact it wasn't easy being him! The news definately hit Home. Thank You Michael for Everything you definately impacted the World! Michael Joseph Jackson Rest In Peace (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009).

Father's Day Memorial: Charles L. Weaver (November 14, 1960 - December 11, 2007)

I just want to take time out today to give Remembrance to my Father Charles L. Weaver. I'm very Thankful I had a Father like him and had the opportunity to express that to him before he passed. Its shameful to me that a number of people never had a Father figure. My only advice in that situation is to forgive and try to make contact. Pops was there during the good times and the rough ones. There's not enough space in this Blog to express every detail. He taught me a lot and in the end he was always in my corner and I was always in his. Its funny because now I feel like I'm a mirror image of him. So today, give Thanks and Cherish the times you share with your Father! Charles L. Weaver Rest In Peace (November 14, 1960 - December 11, 2007)





"So many Kids I knew, never knew who their Pop was / That's why I show my Pop Love / Cause He was still around when I popped up."

Misunderstood

He was noted and cited as a Humble stud,
But not much, just the slightest would bubble blood
To ease the pain, he decided another drug
But not the type you could try at your local store
At first it was just to try and nothing more
It grew old, now he's trying another drug
As a teen he cried for his mother's love,
With teary eyes, but now realize that his mother's gone
Its been three years since she died from a couple slugs
A couple strays from a couple thugs, had punctured her
Replayed those days, he used to argue and fuss with her
Told her to get a life, rolled the dice, and had cuss at her
Now, more than ever realized he had love for her
And knew that this life is far from untouchable..

She looked for Ken, every since she played with Barbie
When she was twelve she had experiences with Charlie
Fourteen, now she fell in love with Ronnie
Fifteen, now she kissing up on Donnie
Sixteen now she missing her and Johnny
Over a decade of saying ''love had robbed me''
One thing led to another, now she more than sorry
Even made a few appearances, on the show Maury
She had a few kids and don't know who the father be
Its probably, sometimes she forget what God could see
When she was young her Father wasn't so Fatherly
She tried to sleep, as she heard her Mommy beat
So now she thought her abusive man was alright to keep
She didn't realize that she, perpetuated the cycle she,
Hoped her kids every night would go right to sleep,
Cause her man would come in acting more crazy than Tyson be
When he done don't even ask for apology
To most of her friends it was hard to see
But still convinced this is a man she was bound to keep

Jay-Z's "Death of AutoTune" Hot 97 World Premier!!

This is definately a subject that needed to be touched within the Hip Hop genre... I enjoy T-Pain's music, I enjoy Kanye West but I think artists need to be a bit more creative. People are becoming too dependent on autotune to create hits... So, I appreciate Hov touching on the subject; its something that needed to be addressed. The Kanye / No I.D. track is on point...



...You gotta love Funk Flex's reaction to this, lol...
