Feel The Funk / Re: The Michael Jackson thread

The Mike we never got to see............ friggin' brilliant businessman and straight gangsta.



Amazing that there were actually reports of him being broke...... the brotha owned 50% of Sony's publishing at the time of his death, including the entirety of their Country and Western catalog and the entire Beatles collection.

The dude literally wrote 120 songs (his words) for each album he recorded....... insane.

KRS by a landslide.

I would write it off as a bunch of dudes in a digital basement sitting around sharing a tall boy of Haterade....but then I have met folks who post on the site who tell how much they respect my work and that I should post there.  I say it's not a hospitable environment but they say otherwise.  Am i judging it wrong?

BSH is like your average high school classroom Bro. Hudlin.

We have our share of class clowns, goof-offs, geeks, shy ones, loud ones, bullies, overachievers, know-it-alls, and folks who are just along for the ride.

If you spend a short amount of time there, there's definitely that possibility that you could be turned off immediately and head for the exit (sometimes running and screaming), depending on who you happen to sit beside, or what conversation you happen to overhear......

but if you are able to bypass some of the site's negatives and spend some time there in getting to know the personalities, you would more than likely come to the conclusion that despite the dysfunction (and there is dysfunction), there is a peculiar brand of genius and passion that flows throughout.

We're not perfect, by any stretch of the imagination..... but it's a community of brothas and sistas with a common interest that binds us together through all of the squabbling, the bickering, and the nonsense.

There are those who hate, as in any other family, but they are farrrrrr outnumbered by those who build, and create, and plan, and inspire, and teach, and learn, and support.

Just my two cents... for what it's worth.

Bro. Malcolm..... because his life was the perfect example of self-transformation and change.

From pimp to convict to preacher to icon. Amazing journey.

I could throw "Secret Lovers" on repeat and listen to that bad boy for an hour or more. Atlantic Starr all the way! (Good one!)

I'm sorry for the mis-compliment (isn't a word, but should be).  You've got a sick team for sure.  And the concept was dead on.  Glad to have you on the board.

Much respect.   :)

Thanks so much for the warm welcome guys!

Bro. Vic........ thanks!

akumatrunigga...... not from Baltimore, actually from the DC burbs, but have been in Charm City for a minute now.

Bro. Hudlin..... thank you! (that means alot) but I dare not take credit for the artwork. My specialty is direction/writing/concepts..... I run with a team of some of the most gifted artists around. They make me look good!  :)  The piece I posted was a collab effort between Bro. Stanley Weaver (lines) and Bro. Mshindo Kuumba (liquid colors).... I look forward to building some great working relationships here as well.

Peace!
