Michael Jackson RIP

Michael Jackson RIP


I can’t really write something today without mentioning MJ can I? You’ve had enough already probably. All I’ll say is that Bad was the first album I ever owned. I used to jump around the couches at home before dinner, attempting to do the moonwalk with the album blaring. Hearing the off-kilter almost strutting beat to ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’ for the first time was probably the jumpoff for my interest in much of the weird stuff I’ve listened to since. His groundbreaking music video work made an artform out of a silly novel idea. For all these things, I am thankful and that is what should be remembered. This map shows you his influence on hip-hop. Rest in Peace.
