After the shocking death of the King of Pop yesterday, many fans were left with an empty feeling in their stomach, and found it hard to come to grips with how such an icon could die, seemingly out of nowhere.
I felt the same way, trust me. It’s almost surreal to believe MJ is actually gone. But we’re here to celebrate his life and the accomplishments he made with breaking race barriers in popular music.
One of MJ’s biggest fans, Rhymefest, who dropped his Man in the Mirror dedication album in late ’07, dropped by FSD to leave his thoughts on the greatest entertainer of all time. And we figured it was only right to repost Man in the Mirror, for those of you who slept the first time.
“People like to refer to MJ as the King of Pop. I disagree. I think many of us realize he was the King of Music, redefining the way many artists approach their craft; whether it be Hip-Hop, soul, R&B, blues, pop and rock. Please download MAN IN THE MIRROR and recapture his misunderstood beauty.” – Rhymefest
