Michael was the first artist that got me interested in radio. Always love his energy and his talent.
Prince was an inspiration of mine when I found out he played every instrument on all of his early recordings. Thought that was boss!! Made we want to dabble in recording when I was growing up.
Hip hop has always influenced me but none more than Cube when he was with NWA and moreso after he left the group. I was kinda on the same mental kick at the time and he spoke to me. Still love him to this day.
Say what you want about this dude, he created a world of his own as lewd and as nasty as it was. Sex continues to sell to this day. He was the first to sell hip hop with it. Props!
Never, ever, ever, ever heard somebody put together words the way this brutha did. Miss him like crazy and there will never be another like him.
