Michael Jackson dead at 50
Cardiac arrest. Arrived at the hospital not breathing. You know the details, but given the man’s… ridiculous impact on hip hop and popular music in general, it had to be said. Instead of reflecting on the eccentricities of his personality, no doubt brought on by his godawful childhood and the various diseases he suffered, take a minute to think of what music might be like had he not been around to change everything.
Recommended listening: Rhymefest’s Man in the Mirror tribute album to the man. Our review is here.
