GENIUS LOST

Back in High School, me and my peeps from Colonel White went insane when Prince’s first Break out hit “SOFT AND WET” came out and began to dominate the music at local clubs. It is amazing that decades later, he was still relevant and original. Songs like “Housequake” proved he was hip hop. “Sing of the Times” showed his social conscience. “When Doves Cry” proved he could be orchestral, grand, inspiring and triumphant. When he went to war with his record label, he showed he understood the nature of greed, exploitation and criminality that exists in the corporate world of “art”. I did not fully understand or appreciate his genius until late in my life, but there is no denying he is, was and always will be one of a kind. ‪#‎saluteRIPPrince‬
