"I told Michael that we needed a black rock 'n' roll tune — a black 'My Sharona' — and a begging tune for the album," Jones wrote. "He came back with 'Beat It' and Rod came back with 'The Lady in My Life.' Rod also brought in 'Thriller' and Michael sang his heart out on it. At one point during the session the right speaker burst into flames, which none of us had ever seen before. How's that for a sign?"
"I got the bad news about MJ and I called Game, since I know he was a fan of MJ also. He said " I gotta pay my respects. I'm doing a tribute song!" My first thoughts were to edit a tribute video from Taydoe TV. When he came up with this brilliant idea, it was only right to collaborate and direct a video to accompany the song. I sent one camera to the hospital, one camera to the house and one camera to the studio to ensure we cover all avenues on this day. During the editing process, the footage was so monumental in the sense that everyone was together and enjoying each other's love for MJ. I enjoyed the process of directing this Tribute video and feel honored to be a part of history.
"We love you MJ!! You will never be forgotten." - Taydoe [Video Director]
"We Are the World" and "Heal the World" were undoubtedly two of Michael Jackson's greatest songwriting and humanitarian achievements. But if MJ had been able to cool off the tension between 50 Cent and the Game, as the California rapper claims he attempted to a few years back, then Jackson could have won the Nobel Peace prize. He certainly would have earned it.
Game told MTV News that during his beef with 50, which began in 2005, Jackson actually called the Compton MC and offered to play peacekeeper between the two former friends. -MTV

"Vibe enjoyed significant success in the late '90s and early part of this decade as hip hop and R&B became the nation's predominant forms of pop music. But in recent years the title has fallen on hard times under its new owner, the Wicks Group, which bought it in 2006. In February, it reduced its circulation and publishing frequency, cut salaries and moved employees to a four-day workweek to save money." -via

"The creation of ANTICIPATION began after I presented READY to my label the first time. I just started recording on my days off and the music felt great and decided that I'd rather share the music than let it sit and be idle. This is music without politics, without creative boundaries."

off "Forever King" mixtape dropping July 3rd
"Michael Jackson's spirit lives on inside a Filipino jail.
"Tourists flocked to the prison in Cebu, south of Manila, Saturday for an elaborate tribute performed by hundreds of inmates in orange prison garb who became an Internet sensation in 2007 for their jailhouse "Thriller" performance.
"The original performance - featuring 1,500 inmates in matching prison uniforms doing Jackson's famous 1982 routine - has been viewed more than 24 million times on YouTube.
"Even as a kid, he was already my idol," said Crisanto Nieri, 38, who danced Jackson's part in 'Thriller' in the performance and is serving seven years on drug charges.
"The original dance began as a exercise routine for the jail birds.
"The inmates dedicated the tribute performance to Jackson's family.
"They also performed 'Ben' and 'We Are the World' for the 700 spectators who watched from a second-floor hallway overlooking the prison yard." -NY Daily News

Rolling Stone magazine’s summer double issue is hitting newsstands on Friday, so to report on Michael Jackson the magazine is planning “a special tribute ‘bookazine,’” said Mark Neschis, a spokesman for the Rolling Stone parent in New York, Wenner Media.
It will be only the second such publication under the Rolling Stone banner, he added, after one devoted to Barack Obama.The publication devoted to Mr. Jackson will come out on July 10, Mr. Neschis said, with a print run of 450,000 copies. (The Obama bookazine sold 300,000 copies, three times as many as Wenner expected it would, he added.) There will be more than 100 pages with “lots of original reporting, original features,” Mr. Neschis said, at a cover price of $9.99. -NY Times

For the bitches, bitches!
Outkast's Big Boi sat down with iHipHop to discuss his upcoming album Sir Lucious Leftfoot Son Of Chico Dusty. The album consists of 16 brand new songs that are mostly funk-based. The album will have features from T.I., Too $hort, George Clinton, Andre 3000, Raekwon & Mary J Blige. Big Boi also lets us in on a classic story involving the tour bus, a groupie and her Army Sergeant father following closely behind them. He also informed us that his infamous stripper pole is no longer in use… and that he has upgraded to a full on cat walk - vital information to any true Big Boi fan. Check it out!
So allow us to tell you about Alden + Context Tanker Boots, a new line of handmade, damn-near indestructible boots, the likes of which haven't been made since .
We mean that literally: the design was last used to outfit American soldiers' feet during the Second World War (and World War I before that). In other words, these should get you through your morning commute—whether dodging enemy fire or the occasional spilled latte. And while shoe nerds will geek out over the details—the skin on the toes is hand-stitched; each pair takes 78 days to make—you'll just appreciate having some handsome (and surprisingly comfortable) new footwear for your summer adventures.
Of course, that's what happens when one of America's oldest shoemakers (Alden) teams up with one of America's coolest stores (Context). For now, only 37 pairs are available, though reinforcements might be on their way.

According men.style.com, most of the apparel “is vintage Polo Ralph Lauren, especially from the early nineties, including Polo Sport, Polo Bear, Polo Tech, and Polo Outdoorsman . No surprise, since it’s long been the gold standard for sneakerheads of all ages (not to mention guys nostalgic for long-lost high school gear). Other brands are limited but include the North Face, Prada, Supreme, Starter, and Patagonia, and, of course, a huge assortment of highly prized sneakers. “The idea is to be the ultimate closet for guys that are into this stuff,” says Flight Club’s Sky Gellatly.”
