Prince Moved Into Carlos Boozer’s Mansion And Tricked It Out (Video)

Really Boozer? Prince turned it into a nightclub… “wiggy wiggy” though?? Bahaaaa!

The year Boozer rented his home to Prince. Carlos Boozer recounts his memories from the year he rented out his L.A. mansion to Prince.
– NBA

Great story, expertly told. RIP Prince. Guess when you rent a mansion for $95K a MONTH, you’re not just making it rain, you’re making it Purple Rain (with new decor and more)!

Robert Glasper Trio – “Sign O The Times” (Redux)

Very nice piece by Robert Glasper Trio, and proof positive that warm sentiment and artistic appreciation do not have to be bound by the trappings of ‘the business.’ Apparently, they were blocked from putting their keyed up version of “Sign O The Times” out when Prince was alive. But still, when respect (and admiration) is earned, respect is due. Pay up. Kudos to Glasper’s group – for the music and the framework and lesson in life #RIPPrince

This is a[n] arrangement I recorded in 2015 as part of my “Covered” album. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to put in on the album. Prince didn’t really like people recording his music lol. But I feel now is a good time to let everyone hear it! This is my favorite Prince joint “Sign O The Times.” The message is still relevant. Prince you are missed. Thank you for unapologetically being you.

Okay, hands up if you DIDN’T know that Prince’s genius included the ability to play damn near EVERY musical instrument imaginable. Anyone? Go ahead if you didn’t know (not like we can see you). So, maybe a refresher wayback flashback is in order. Enter “Loring Park Sessions” where Prince and some compadres are just on here jamming instrumentals. Enjoy #RIPPrince

(Oh yeah, he was doing it like this at 19 years of age!!)

RIP Prince

a9217c156b294ab933ed3a7867e0af221ce65f9c760721de42c13e1bcbe52307_-original

The Rock Soul R&B Funk Pop music world was rocked to its mantle and core today as news of the passing of a legend spread: The Purple Rocker, Prince, suddenly left this earthly plane today. Details are still being revealed, and we certainly need the time to process the information and our feelings; but we have the gist. We know, sadly, the mourning can begin.

Only now can we truly know what it will be like to hear ‘that’ Prince song/album/collection, knowing that he is no longer with us. At least with Prince… He knew… he HAD to know… that he was and will forever be loved & admired by millions; and acclaimed at every strata of the industry – casual listener to sternest critic. Hit the jump to see sentiments to that effect expressed across the Interwebs honoring and bidding farewell to the 57-year-old Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame performer.

Prince Rogers Nelson of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Born to make music, make a ruckus, and make history. What a life! You did that and lived that, Sire. Thank you blessing and bringing us along all these years. And now Your Royal Badness, rest in peace.

Prince – “Baltimore” feat. Eryn Allen Kane (Video)

Respect to Eryn Allen Kane for the gumption. Doing the work featuring on the ‘wake up people!’ jawn by Prince entitled “Baltimore” (we posted earlier on here) AND uploading the visuals for it to the Tube to spread the music and message. Check it out above. All about the people and the problem; it’s a tribute video. So, we don’t get the artists in here as much as a presentation of scenes and facts. But that is more than okay. Feels right.

Prince – “Baltimore” feat. Eryn Allen Kane

“Peace is more than the absence of war.”
Prince

Let’s see what the Purple Rocker is dropping. This “Baltimore” (featuring Eryn Allen Kane)… pretty dope and timely. The song cries and cries out for those suffering brutality and injustice in the USA – Baltimore and beyond. Shared in the liner notes for this SoundCloud share:

Please know that all involved in this project never take for granted the privileges we have in this country. Let’s all continue to fight the good fight and confront inhumanity on every level until the day it is no longer.
