Rest in Peace Michael Jackson (1958-2009)

Superstar Michael Jackson unexpectedly passed today after being rushed to the hospital after suffering from cardiac arrest. The king of Pop was in a coma at UCLA Medical Center, and eventually passed this afternoon. This is a unfortunate day for Music losing one of the greatest entertainers of all time and an overall icon. Throughout the years Michael brought us decades of classic music, unforgettable performances, and was coined the King of Pop.

Actress/Sex symbol Farrah Fawcett passed today as well after losing an ongoing battle with anal cancer. Fawcett died at the age of 62, almost 6 hours before MIchael Jackson’s death.

Takin’ Em Back – 6/19

19 06 2009

Tha Dogg Pound – What Would You Do?

I heard this joint for the first time in a minute on Pandora radio, and it was like a breath of fresh chronic smoke. In the mid 90’s Death Row was the epitome of West Coast hip hop dropping hit after hit, and keeping gangsta rap alive.

There’s a lot of talent out here in Los Angeles, and with they work with the right people they can make an impact.
