Doves Cry

Music icon Prince has reportedly passed away today at his estate in Minnestota. He was 57. So far no cause of death has been announced, but he was admitted to the hospital last week for flu symptoms.

Prince’s impact on pop culture is ineffable. With 39 albums to his credit, his career spanned over 30 years. His music has been sampled by the likes of Kanye West, 2Pac, Jay Z, Beyonce, Notorious B.I.G, and more. Condolences to his friends and family

    “Michael Jackson’s album was only called ‘Bad’ because there wasn’t enough room on the sleeve for ‘Pathetic'” – Prince

    He was hater. But he was mf’n legend. #RIP.

    • marty mcfly

      He wasn’t no hater for making this comment about Michael Jackson. Prince felt he was a better artist and wasn’t gonna act like he didn’t feel that way. If you mad cause he threw a shot? Really thats how lot of us talk when discussing artists, Prince just wasn’t afraid to say it.

      • Winston Wolfe

        that comment really pissed me off initially but I say to hell with it. Prince and the overly used term “hater” do NOT belong in the same sentence. how somebody could even write something like that about him on this day is blasphemes

      • Kris Kompute

        Who said I was mad? Prince was the King of Shade. That’s a fact. And “Bad” is arguably MJ’s best album. Hence, why Prince came by the never land ranch to work with MJ on history.

        Both you bitches STFU.

        Go ahead and write your 8 paragraph response. I ain’t reading that shit.

        • marty mcfly

          I’d have to disagree you bitch you.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            You always calling somebody a bitch but you’re the biggest bitch of them all.

          • marty mcfly

            No bitch. You however are a legit bitch. If you could make a police report about people shitting on you online you probably would. Bitch

          • el jim chapo guzman

            Nigga you’re a twat.

          • marty mcfly

            Your mother and daughter.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            Uncle Tom FUCK YOU!!!!!

          • marty mcfly

            You are the DEFINITION of a Uncle Tom bitch.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            You remind me of Stephen in the movie django

          • marty mcfly

            You the nigga that hates black people, not me bitch.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            That’s deep if you think about it

        • Winston Wolfe

          smh at your first response to Prince passing away was about him being a hater? anybody who grew up with his music knows that isn’t true and the only reason he had an issue with michael was because he didn’t play any instruments and was considered to have a production team around him at all times but it wasn’t like he made a career out of shading people, bruh? do you, player

    • marty mcfly

      Michael Jackson was a super excellent and talented artist but with that being said, I can’t say he was better then Prince.

      • Da Business

        Prince probably was the better artist overall but, MJ’s influence was 2nd to none.
        RIP to both icons but, MJ effected more people imo.

        #salute

        • marty mcfly

          Even that doesn’t really mean much imo. This no diss to MJ but when you talk “influence” and effect on people? That really has nothing to do with “artistry” as it relates to Prince and MJ. Effecting more people takes away nothing nor negates anything from Prince in terms of artistry. These elements (influence on people vs artistry) will be equated with each other as if the some kinda equalizer between the two? There’s really not.

        • marty mcfly

          Not mad at this opinion though cause through a pop culture perspective it does considerably appear that Michael is the better “artist” but upon closer inspection….

      • Winston Wolfe

        Nor can I! Prince was on another planet. MJ had the voice and the dance moves but Prince had it all. Name an instrument that guy couldn’t play? I really hate this news.

        • marty mcfly

          MJ had something about him that was beyond music so its hard to compare.

      • The Ripper

        You’re right!!!

        Prince was a musical genius. Prince wrote most, if not all, his music. Dude wrote for many many people including Tevin Campbell early music which was excellent. 30 years from now, we’ll still be debating who was the greatest between Mike and Prince. 2 icons…. just a sad day.

        • marty mcfly

          Not only did he write most of his music but on several albums he played bass guitar, lead guitar, keyboard/piano, drums, etc..

    • Computer Blue

      Game: Blouses

    • DoughboyToad

      He wasn’t a hater they had a friendly competition Prince would tell you MJ is one of the best to do it

    • The Ripper

      How was he hater?? You act like Michael Jackson was writing all his music and had a bad chick near him all the time. Prince wrote most, if not, all his music. Prince wrote for many people and Prince always stayed with a bad chick!!! It’s no way dude was a hater!!!! 2 icons!!!!

  • THE WORLD FAMOUS DOPEMAN!!

    AN ACTUAL MUSICIAN THAT ACTUALLY PLAYED INSTRUMENTS!! WE LOST SUCH AN AMAZIN’ PERSON TODAY!! I KNOW THAT HIS MUSIC WILL LIVE ON FOREVER!!

    First Phife Dog, now this. 2016 has been rough. RIP Prince!

  • I saw Prince at an after hours club back when he was “the symbol.” Played a guitar solo for a half hour for the joy, just because he could, while wearing a bullfighting outfit with platform boots. His discography and work ethic is unparalleled and his women were bad, bad, bad. Read he found out MJ was in the audience at one of his shows and he decided to play a slap bass solo in his face just to diss him. Some where Charlie Murphy is getting drunk

    • Kris Kompute

      How old are you?

      • I’m seasoned

        • Winston Wolfe

          lol yo? for real? If this is true then wow that’s dope but why does this sound like something from a comedy sketch? “bullfighting outfit” lmfao but hey, that’s really what he wore though and did it WELL. irreplaceable

  • Sina Mailer Daemon Djavadkhani

    RIP Prince – one of the greatest to ever do it, not to mention so many legendary stories (Chapelle Show: ‘Basketball’ / Charlamagne Breakfast Club: Prince ‘floating away’ / Questlove Roots: ‘Finding Nemo’). No matter how ‘Hip Hop Thug’ you are, it’s completely acceptable in the culture to fully embrace and fanboy/jap-korean-idolify his androgynous energy. I’d like to leave you with this thought… Can you imagine the jam session between John, Kurt, Michael, Bowie, and Prince up in heaven right now? One Love XO
