The artist known as Prince has died ... TMZ has learned. He was 57.

Prince's body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday morning.

Multiple sources connected to the singer confirmed he had passed.

The singer -- full name Prince Rogers Nelson -- had a medical emergency on April 15th that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. But he appeared at a concert the next day to assure his fans he was okay. His people told TMZ he was battling the flu.

well, damn.

i knew this would happen at some point.

but it's extra DAMN b/c he was still putting on shows. some of the best of his career.

and i was hoping he'd come to Chicago again.

at least i saw him every time he was here.

and the last time i saw him was in a room w/499 other ppl.

and it was possibly the best Prince show i'd ever seen.

but...damn.

i hope he went out satisfied. or at least proud of what he'd done.

man.

damn.

fuck you.

Not the best way to start a bachelor party weekend, choking back tears in an airport surrounded by slot machines.

I could've paid through the teeth to see him in Oakland recently for the acoustic show. I figured I'd wait to see him in LA. I will regret that decision forever.

I'm still holding out hope that it's not him, despite the fact that I know my hopes are in vain.

Just... yeah. No clue how to feel right now. Other than sad.

I can't think of an artist of this kind of musicianship/songcrafting influence dying...maybe Lennon as far a songwriting is concerned.

While Michael was a singular supernova and shaped a generation..there's something about Prince that had SOOOOOO many mofos have stolen his various blueprints and ran with it...even basics like his drum programming.

RIP man.

I was raised on Prince.

Thank goodness I saw him in Charlotte and Greensboro a few years back.

He hasn't really aged in about 20 years anyway.

But they say the good die young(ish) and in that respect, I suppose it's true.

Prince was 50% of my developmental years in music, MJ was the other 50%...then hiphop & R&B happened and I kinda evolved in my own way. But I still held fond places for both artist.

Funny, because I kind of took for granted that both would live long lives and I probably wouldn't see their passings.

But here we are.

With that said, I can only be thankful that I was alive to experience the rides with the Purple one and live it real time. Even if I wasn't always as attentive as I was in my formative years.

Prince was undeniably my fucking hero in so many ways.

I raised myself on him.

On him, Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali. That's the triptych right there.

And yeah... I agree... this year can go right on ahead and jump off a cliff already.

I also hung out with a bunch of OKPs for his afterparty when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

I have also spent countless hours posting about and reading about Prince here.

This really hurts and I am not sure how to take it.

RIP Mr. Nelson.

Tracy died soon after a long fought civil war,
Just after I'd wiped away his last tear
I guess he's better off than he was before,
A whole lot better off than the fools he left here
I used to cry for Tracy because he was my only friend
Those kind of cars don't pass you every day
I used to cry for Tracy because I wanted to see him again,
But sometimes sometimes life ain't always the way

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish life was never ending,
And all good things, they say, never last

Springtime was always my favorite time of year,
A time for lovers holding hands in the rain
Now springtime only reminds me of Tracy's tears
Always cry for love, never cry for pain
He used to say so strong unafraid to die
Unafraid of the death that left me hypnotized
No, staring at his picture I realized
No one could cry the way my Tracy cried

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad
Sometimes, sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
And all good things, they say, never last

I often dream of heaven and I know that Tracy's there
I know that he has found another friend
Maybe he's found the answer to all the April snow
Maybe one day I'll see my Tracy again

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
But all good things, they say, never last

All good things that say, never last
And love, it isn't love until it's past

142. "A Few Random Prince Memories. "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          


1. We (my brother and I) were all team MJJ so we were not feeling my dad bringing home Purple Rain. Also my little Southern Mind was shocked to see the dude half naked with just a sheet barely covering him. I was such a prude and could not abide.

2. Was it appropriate for my dad to take his 7 year old son to see Purple Rain? Maybe not, but he actually went to see it by himself before taking us to make sure it was okay. It was OK.

3. Learned what the word materbate was from Darling Nicki. Let me stop lying. Even though all the big kids on the beach were giggling and talking about what it meant I didn't have an exact idea of what they were talking about. I just knew it was something to do with sex and you did it in a magazine in a hotel lobby.

4. I remember my dad vividly breaking down what the lyrics to "If I was U Girlfriend" was all about. Easily my favorite song. Or maybe it's

5. Do you know that moment when your musical taste change from Kid Pop Commercial songs to like brooding artsy deep stuff? I remember one fall day outside raking the leaves listening to Sign of the Times and the artistry of it all just hit me. I let that tape rock until that tape pop'd.

6. I swear Prince got me into college. The school that I ended up attending had this section no other college application had and it was a chance to describe a few of your favorite things. For favorite sound recording I talked about Sign of the Times. I just imagined that there was some poor admissions person who had slogged through hundreds of applications seeing that, perking up and giving me the go ahead without reading anything else.

7. This weekend I went to visit my dad and he was in worst shape than when I last saw him. Not only memory bad but he could barely walk. It was hard to get him to even try and get out the bed. So I finally I put on a mix of Prince songs and he perked up. I asked him if he remembered who sang the song and he said "That's Prince of Course". We rocked out to a few of his favorites. It will be another reason why Prince will forever remind me of my pops and probably won't be able to ever listen to Sign of the Times again without getting choked up.

To this website.....shonuff it did. Prince,who I just watched in Atlanta playing on piano recently.

Anyway, I will say this to all those who truly appreciate musicianship when they experience it: this man, tiny man at 5'2 could hold the attention of 20,000+ people in an amphitheater by himself with an instrument. But one thing that stood out was and still is, he was a fan, supporter, brother and a mentor to women in music. He wrote for them, played for them, arrange for them and produce for them. He even had an all girl band playing for him. Those ladies must be devastated.

Ok, I said my 2 cents and hope I won't be back tot his site ever again.

this is worse than when michael died (for me)
at least then, i was in harlem, and as soon as the news were out, it felt
like harlem stopped to mourn. so it felt like being among people who were as devastated and so there was comfort in that.

i was crying in the cafeteria in school
i dont understand why the world is just going on as though nothing has happened.
its going to be a while before i can listen to prince without crying.
i was so looking forward to this tour.
it was lovely seeing him in baltimore

RIP Prince. I wasn't that big a fan of his (my wife is, she's hurting), but I recognized, admired, and respected his genius.

A legend not only for his music, but his fight to reclaim his music against the record company is also something he should be remembered and admired for.

If you say Purple, there's an entire generation worth of people that think Prince first.

There's a literal bank vault full of unreleased material.

There's so many stories about this man.....and they are mostly true. And people don't have the reaction to this news on par with other deceased legends? SMH. The fact that my local station (97.5 Raleigh-Durham) didn't halt the fucking programming to alert anyone makes me furious. This man deserves more than a moment.

In response to Reply # 166


  

          

He's been in need of a hip replacement for years. I can only imagine he never had it done because of the requirement of receiving a blood transfusion intra and post procedurally if necessary-- something Jehovahs Witness do don't. I can only assume he was on high doses of pain meds to midigate the bone on bone pain associated with his hip. High doses of pain meds can yield unpredictable outcomes... The only thing the hospital could have done is change his meds, but I'd imagine he's been thru that process a number of times in the course of managing his pain

These are a lot of assumptions obviously, but certainly not a simple solution

http://www.tmz.com/2016/04/21/prince-treated-drug-overdose-dead/#ixzz46WhE1bTz

Prince was treated for a drug overdose 6 days before his death ... multiple sources tell TMZ.

We broke the story ... Prince's private jet made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois last Friday, hours after he performed in Atlanta. At the time his reps said he was battling the flu ... something we questioned because his plane was only 48 minutes from home before the unscheduled landing.

Multiple sources in Moline tell us, Prince was rushed to a hospital and doctors gave him a "save shot" ... typically administered to counteract the effects of an opiate.

Our sources further say doctors advised Prince to stay in the hospital for 24 hours. His people demanded a private room, and when they were told that wasn't possible ... Prince and co. decided to bail. The singer was released 3 hours after arriving and flew home.
We're told when Prince left he "was not doing well."

I responded to the statement that inferred that is the hospital was a better then Prince may still be alive. If the report is correct, he left because he couldn't get a private room, against doctor's advice. That isn't the hospital's fault.

I can't believe it's truth, the world has lost another angel and us music fans lost another legend.

I heard the news while I was at my aunt's funeral, two people I looked up to are gone, I get home and over at bookface just saying "Rest In Peace to Prince" a million times, so I had to come over here and do the same at least once.

R.I.P. to all, Michael Jackson, Prince, Maurice White, Whitney Houston, James Brown, Phife Dawg, Sean Price, B.B. King, J-Dilla, George Duke, Natalie Cole, Luther Vandross, Leon Haywood, Gerald Levert, Teena Marie, Chuck Brown, Bobby Blue Bland, Ray Charles, Jimmy Castor, Donald Byrd, Joe Sample, Wilton Felder, & Wayne Henderson (all three of the Jazz Crusaders), Donna Summer, Vesta Williams, and soooo many other black legends.

Only saw him once at Madison Square Garden. It was great because it was the most diverse crowd I'd ever seen at concert.

I just knew it was only a matter of time I would see him in a smaller venue.

My friend told me once that after a George Clinton concert at (I think WWE restuarant that use to be in time square) the bartender told him to stick around if he wanted to see a special treat. After some time Prince rolls through and they rock until the early morning. Like they went so late my dude just had to leave and they were still going.

I just knew I'd eventually have my Prince story like that one day. Maybe 20 years down the line but eventually.

194. "RE: TMZ SAYS PRINCE IS DEAD. (swipe/link)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

A few thoughts

1."Damn, damn, damn" Florida Evans style

2. We here in the Okayplayer universe already knew that he was one of the best to already do it but it needs to be said again. His musical legacy is puts him on the Mt. Rushmore of black music. While it might be an almost too easy comparison, he really was a love child of Jimi, James and Sly. Think about how high reached standing on the shoulders of those giants....

3. It nice to see the love from mainstream. A friend wrote, "just saw the news while in a meeting. Unbelievable! No better way to shut up a room of 40 and 50 somethings than by saying "Let's take a short break. They say Prince died earlier today." When Prince went of the reservation and his chart success began to falter, it became easy to think that the rest of the world had forgotten about his genius. Folks all seem to remember today.

4. The music, the glorious music that will be with us forever. Almost 40 years of funkpunk and R&B for us to enjoy until the end of our respective days.

How they basically hired him to shoot a documentary on Rainbow Children and confiscated all the footage, and the assistant told him that Prince pulls stunts like that all the time.

The question is less about if they are there, but who's going to go through all those vaults making sense of decades of a man's life.

Erykah Badu’s Heartfelt Poem To Prince Will Only Make You Cry Even More

Shenequa Golding @GoldingGirl617 | April 22, 2016 - 8:00 am


The news of Prince’s passing hasn’t gotten any easier for fans to digest. While his autopsy is reportedly scheduled for today (April 22) it’s safe to say the loss of such a music icon is too great and to devastating to accept.

Artists such as Questlove, Talib Kweli and others have all come forward to express their shock and grief. President Barack Obama issued a statement, and Will Smith took to Facebook Thursday (April 21) in complete disbelief as he wrote in a post he spoke with the Purple One the night before his untimely death.

And while music and the world has no doubt lost a legend, Ms. Erykah Badu –who had a close relationship with the late artist–took to Facebook to write an honest and heartfelt poem about their musical kinship. Everything from the time he told her that her third album Worldwide Underground wasn’t finished, and how down-to-earth he was to come to a “hood club in South Dallas” to play guitar.

Do ensure your Kleenex is on hand because this poem doesn’t make Prince’s death any easier.



That time Prince was your rhythm guitarist
then sent you the picture.
The time Prince was so gracious to come to your club in the hood of South Dallas and play for 4 hours into the night...
The time you recorded "Today -the earth song"
at Paisley Park.
All the times y'all shot pool and argued over religion.
The time Prince got in your Lemo to tell you that 'World Wide Underground ' wasn't finished yet and you 'felt a way'. Lol
The time Prince "evolved " and wouldn't sign yo mama's 'Dirty Mind' album cover cause he said he wasn't into that no mo and yo mama told him
"well you shouldn't have made it then" and you were embarrassed.
The time Prince had a "swear jar" and you just put a 20 dollar bill in it when you walk in.
The time Prince and Larry Grahm had you cornered in a Jehova's Witness...well, witness session.
The time you presented Prince with the ICON Billboard AWARD with 20 (Janell Monáe).
The time you sang "I wanna be your lover" on the 3rd grade talent show wearing a swim top and the teachers cut you short because it was "inappropriate".
The moment you remember how much he means to you...
You've been here all my life .
And You will live F O R E V E R in my cells.
Sometimes it snows in April?

Badu

213. "That seems weird."
In response to Reply # 209
Fri Apr-22-16 04:08 PM by denny

          

Not implausible....but weird. Why would he take percocet instead of oxycontin? I'm sure he had a doctor that would get him anything he wanted. There's literally no reason to take percs instead of oxy but there's alot of reasons not to. Then again....it's drug use and not always rational. Them perc pills are huge....and even for a complete novice...you'd have to take 50 or so to warrant a save shot. Not sure if Prince drank....but that could be a likely cause too. Even just a few drinks increases the dangers of opiate use ten-fold.

That message should be printed on billboards in every city. Such a simple message could save thousands of lives. Something like:

'Drinking and taking prescription opiate pills simultaneously is MORE dangerous than shooting heroin by itself'.

It's like more than 90% of opiate overdoses involve alcohol and often in small, seemingly harmless amounts. If most opiate abusers KNEW that they would do without the few drinks added into the mix. They're better off just doing MORE of the opiate pills than adding in those drinks. Giving them the option of getting higher while being safer is something we haven't really explored from a PSA perspective.

Sometimes people use the name 'percocet' interchangably with any form of oxycodone. Not that any of this matters. End of day....how and why he died is for his friends and family. It's probably none of OUR business as fans. But any chance to make these very simple PSA statements might make it worth it.

He was known not to drink at all, not allow alcohol at Paisley Park, strict vegan. The pain pills makes most sense to me tho, whatever was used, if his hips were really in that bad shape. It could have been flu on top as well, will wait and see. Just sad all around no matter what.

231. "Incredibly prolific, inspirational and passionate artist"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

even if you didn't fuck with him, you had to fuck with him. he gave you no choice. his reach in music was immeasurable. his thirst for art was insatiable. he was an unorthodox sex symbol, unmistakably and uncommonly lusty for life. i was never really the type to listen to his studio stuff and even still as a live act he moved me like few others and he was an INCREDIBLE guitarist. it's a shame that his insistence on pushing on and mistreating himself in favor of his art cost him so much in the end. for me it's been touching seeing the outpouring of emotion over his life and his oeuvre, just seeing how many people he touched. i also think that for all the identity politics talk about madonna, no one opened up that discussion like prince, almost to the point where he closed it, too. he had that kind of enigmatic, androgynous thing going on but when you started asking "what is he?" you quickly finished answering "who the fuck cares?" he opened a lot of minds and bridges a lot of gaps. real ass dude, all the way, a true artist and someone who isn't sufficiently given his due by the word "icon."

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

I did a search for "prince austin" on Twitter and found a party last night. Outside of myself and 3 comics I told about it, the place was VERY lightly attended. It was really upsetting. I was legit mad at Austin.

Then tonight, I saw Princess. Maya Rudolph's Prince cover band...at the Paramount Theater. Hundreds of people, all standing, all singing along...and outside of Let's Go Crazy, Controversy, Purple Rain, Darling Nikki, and a few others - these were deep cuts. They went IN. Even played Purple Music.

And then Maya gave a speech at the end of the show without the band behind her. All you could hear were her words and the sniffles from the crowd.

Faith restored, Austin.

I posted this in the Lesson, but thought I'd post it in this thread too:

This is the Glasper Trio at the Village Vanguard covering a Prince classic (they been performing this on the regular for the Covered album). Because I don't know how long YT will keep this up, I named the video a corny math joke (math major here sorry). It's dope af and a way better performance than anything on Covered (which was way too dumbed down than need be IMO).

I peeped the Music Snobs posted their Prince episodes right away. I'm happy because I never got to hear those eps but it just seems like all of his wishes went out the window with his passing. I wonder how this will affect his music releases going forward.

239. "this one hit me and my son hard"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

like most of you music is a huge part of my life. Ive posted on here and on twitter about how much my son loves music. When he was born I would make mix tapes and play them for him. I would strap him into his car seat and set him down near me while I messed around on my turntables. Sometimes we would just go on drives around town listening to music. No destination in mind just enjoying the day.

Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and Prince made up the majority of the soundtrack to our days. We continued the afternoon drives and the nights in front of the turntables as he got older. I kept introducing him to new music but Michael Jackson and Prince remained his favorites. At 2 years old he would be in the backseat requesting a Prince or Michael Jackson song.

Shit now when he hears a Prince song he has never heard before he knows it is Prince because of the production. When he heard Jungle Love for the first time we were in the car heading some where and it comes on the radio. When the song finished he tells me it sounded like a Prince song but that wasnt Prince singing. So I start giving him Prince's history with The Time. The whole time my wife was just in awe like what 6 year old can pick up on something like that? Not that long ago he heard Ready for the World's Oh Shiela and thought it was a Prince song...like many people do. I told him it wasnt and we argued about it all the way home. No it is not a Prince song. Yeah I think you are wrong dad this is Prince. No its not. Youre wrong son! We argued until we got home and I showed him the credits on the 12". He still says I am wrong,

The day of his death I found out while I was cutting the lawn. Stopped to take a water break and checked my phone and the first picture that showed up on my instagram was a picture of Prince, It wasnt from someone that normally posted about music so I knew something was up. My wife is still mad at me because I just kept reading the news and stories about him and didnt finish the yard before I had to leave for work. She had to sweep up all the grass on the driveway and sidewalk. Oops.


Anyway I got to work and went about my day. Checking twitter here and there. Then a fellow okp(Tish) reminded me of a video I posted almost 6 years ago of my son dancing to Prince https://youtu.be/G1KnG-1nGrU Then it hits me that he doesnt know that Prince passed. I left to work before he got home from school. So I called home and asked the wife if she told him and she hadnt. So she put him on the phone and I let him know. He was quiet for a little while then said why do all the good singers like Michael Jackson and Prince keep dying? Then he said now we cant go to a Prince concert together. I had promised to take him to see Prince when he was older. He was pretty bummed out about it for a couple of days. Since Thursday when he is in the car all he allows me to listen to is Prince.

November 8th, 2005 The greatest night in the history of GD!

In response to Reply # 0
Mon Apr-25-16 07:09 AM by murph71

          

The bulk of this piece breaking down Prince's genius has been said/written before...But it's this kicker from a Vulture article that sums up PERFECTLY why Prince is/was a giant even amongst other larger-than-life artists:

"I just laid out four areas that, if Prince had only mastered one, would’ve made him legendary. He mastered them all. The range of his talent was that immense. And he made so much music! Jimi Hendrix was perhaps as broadly talented, but he made three studio albums; the Beatles were together for eight years. Prince released hundreds upon hundreds of songs over his nearly 40-year-long recording career. I don’t want to sound hysterical, but “Moonbeam Levels” is the best song you will hear this year, and Prince never even officially released it! That doesn't even make any sense! He created so much music, over so long, in so many different styles. Prince may be gone, but he left behind many lifetimes of, yes, musical genius....."

This^^^^was the secret sauce in Prince's genius and what separated him from ALL his peers...He was more dedicated to the art of making music MORE than anyone else....He made Frank Zapper, one of the most prolific acts of all time, look downright lazy...Dude had the mindset of an early 70's artist who thought nothing usual of releasing an album a year...And during his prime he wasn't just releasing songs just to stunt...Dude was creating some of the best sounds of his era...

He was simply BETTER....

243. "I watched a youtube vid of a concert at Capital Hall from 1982. "
In response to Reply # 0


          

gotdamn I wish I was a little older so I could witness his earlier shows.

My dad took my oldest sister to see this concert when it came to Pittsburgh.

My sister took me to see Purple Rain at the Fulton Movie Theatre downtown. On the day it came out she went to the first showing at 10AM and watched every showing until Midnight. Both my sister's were fans from day 1 so I had no problem picking Prince over MJ. Something about that music spoke to me when tho MJ had some hits and the videos to match. Prince was just funky.

She also took me to see my first Prince concert in 1988. The Lovesexy Tour. They had a basketball hoop on the stage and he hit a 15 footer. This is what made the Chapelle skit hilarious for me. I saw Prince put the ball through is legs 3 times in heels then hit a jumper in front of 20K people then go back to playing music like it was nothing. I knew that story had to be true.

I saw Prince 2 more times. He came to Charlotte a few years ago and we got there late cause my wife had to work. We were so pissed we said fuck it and bought tickets to the Greensboro show and Chaka opened up for him.

last but not least, I used to work in Philly on 15th and Locust and one day a tour bus stops and Prince runs out in heels and asked the newspaper stand for directions. I froze. I didn't believe I just saw what I just saw at 10AM on a random Friday.

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

There are some moments for which the word “remember” is simply inadequate. Some moments, for better or worse, help fuse your psyche. Some moments recode your DNA. There is no remembering. There is only you. I don’t remember the day my cousin Ann died, as I watched my mother and sisters weep for what seemed like forever. I don’t remember when our entire neighborhood had a picnic at Rock Creek Park, a moment that I’m certain is top 10 for all participants. I don’t remember spontaneously jumping off my Uncle John’s boat into the Chesapeake, too young to know swimming isn’t instinctive for humans, seeing all of that life under the water and, eventually, my father’s hand. I don’t remember all of the prep time of that November morning when our family braved the stinging cold to celebrate Dr. King’s birthday becoming a national holiday. I don’t remember the day my father left home, exploding into the bedroom he shared with my mother and yanking the television from the wall as my friend Randy and I played Combat on Atari. And I don’t remember the day I discovered Prince. It’s all just who I am.



After my father left, my time out of school was my own. There were no more long bike rides around the city. No more fixing cars. No more reading the comics in the paper. I filled a large portion of this time listening to music. My older sister, Princess (yeah, I know), had all of Prince’s albums through Controversy. Prin (which she prefers) had an impressive album collection: the Dreamgirls sountrack, Kiss, Queen, David Bowie, Marvin Gaye, Parliament, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Michael Jackson, the Sugarhill Gang and so much more. I listened relentlessly to all of them, especially Dreamgirls, The Message, and Thriller.



However, I ignored the dude in the bikini briefs on one album cover and sitting naked atop a goddamn pegasus on the back cover of another. I was too young and it was just all too much. Prin would listen to Prince while getting dressed in the morning, vibrant and confident, like all young women who listen to Prince. Not only did it sound like something I shouldn’t be listening to, it sounded like something I shouldn’t want to listen to. One time, I blurted out that that the hook on that song she loved so much sounded like “Touch-Your-Pus-sy” to me. What else would that freaky looking guy be singing? My mother laughed her big laugh and Prin facepalmed so hard. When they explained to me that I was wrong—by holding up the album cover and demonstrably sounding out the word “Con-Tro-Ver-Sy)—I decided right there I was going to see what was up with this dude.



Back then, the weekend was peak listening time for me. I’m the youngest by a decade, so everyone had something to do or someone to see. In those days, a teenager or young adult staying in the house was a treasonous act, so everybody was gone. I could sit with those albums sun up to sun down, without a hint of interruption.

The time had come. I was going to see what was up with the dude in the bikini briefs. I needed to understand why Prin became so alive every morning.



So, at nine-years old, I pulled 1999 from its sleeve and I noticed the artwork on the cover for the first time. There’s a lot there, but the feral eyes in the 9s set a tone. I felt like the album was staring back at me, giving me a last warning. Enter if you dare. I forged ahead. Every track was sonic quicksand. How had I missed it all those mornings? Of course I knew 1999, Delirious and Little Red Corvette. Those were the hits. But, D.M.S.R.? That groove completely eviscerated Another One Bites The Dust, which was my favorite song of that time.

I sank deeper. Something in the Water (Does Not Compute) and All the Critics Love You in New York? To this day, I still don’t know what they are. They’re music, but I don’t know what kind. They were recorded in 1981 or 82 and they STILL sound like the future. Free? Honestly, I still don’t understand my connection to that one, because not even other Prince diehards love it as much as I do. But, I reflexively hear it every time I’m confronted with the idea black people don’t love America or shouldn’t love America. I wouldn’t even say it’s a great song. It’s just an incredibly sincere statement. Automatic? The actual song, which is brilliant, is just a warm up for an unforeseen collision into a wall of Prince spoken word, spooky synths, guitar solos, sobbing succubi and extraterrestrial backing vocals. This is music? 1999 is the album that ruined radio for me. After listening to it for a few hours, my young mind understood that radio is for entertainment, not for art. If I wanted art, I needed to go find it.



At some point, I got around to Controversy, after 1999 and Dirty Mind took me past lunch and into the late afternoon. Now, I’m just going to say this and you can take it how you want: If the Ramones had recorded Ronnie Talk to Russia…undisputed greatest punk song ever. EVER. You think about that and be honest with yourself.



Well, moving on…



Before I heard Annie Christian, I was about 6 or 7 hours deep. I already knew I was a fan. I knew I would listen to this dude for as long as he made music. But, Annie Christian is The One. That song made me believe God had a hand in this. God wanted me to hear this man’s music. Prince’s delivery on the track sounds like he’s possessed. There’s no life in his voice. There’s only the words.



Annie Christian wanted to be a big star
So she moved to Atlanta and she bought a blue car
She killed black children, and what’s fair is fair
If you try and say you’re crazy, everybody say electric chair
Electric chair



Annie Christian, Annie Christ
Until you’re crucified, I’ll live my life in taxicabs



She killed black children? Here I am, a nine-year-old black boy, hearing this man offer this to the world with the indifference of a veteran cop writing a parking ticket. I was scared to fucking death. But, I must’ve picked up that needle and dropped at start of that song over a dozen straight times. I had to hear it. I became possessed. The song is so damn unnerving. But, I loved it. It made its way into my cells. And as the years passed, more of his music would do the same. It’s been been there every day of my life since that day. Every high and every low.



Earned a new belt at martial arts school? Play some Prince. Let’s Go Crazy.



Win another basketball trophy? Play some Prince. Baby, I’m a Star.



Graduate? Play some Prince. Delirious.



Get married? Nigga…Adore. Adore, nigga.



Mom dies?



Stand tall, sweet baby, don’t you fall
(Tall, baby)
You ain’t the only one gettin’ beat down
Happens to us all
The road you chose to walk in this life
(The road you choose to walk in this life)

Is one that leads into the next
So sweet baby, stand tall
(Sweet baby, stand tall)
Stand tall
(Sweet baby)



I know most people would guess Sometimes It Snow In April. I also played that one on the worst day of my life, but Sweet Baby absolutely gutted me. It still guts me. I have never listened to that song again. I still don’t know why I even played it that day, other than I was supposed to.



First child? Play some Prince. The Holy Trinity: The Love We Make. Let’s Have a Baby. Friend, Lover, Sister, Mother/Wife.



I could go on forever about what that man meant to me. I would love to talk about how prolific and versatile he was. I could talk about how I could hear him in songs from Nine Inch Nails to Lil Wayne (Trent Reznor and Wayne would proudly confirm it for you, too). I could rage on about how he was underrated as a lyricist and guitarist with malice by music critics who didn’t want to accept that a black man from Minnesota was the apex predator of music, the preferred artistic medium of the universe, for the vast majority of his life. I could present my case for him being not only the greatest talent of the Rock era, but the greatest musician who has ever lived. But here’s what I’ll never do and have never done:



I’m not selling anyone on Prince. If you don’t get it, it’s fine with me. It’s a very personal thing and I don’t like to trivialize it with petty debate centered on music industry metrics. I’ve always likened meeting another true Prince fan to meeting someone of the same mutant race. The other parts of them, good or bad, do not matter to me, because we have a primordial bond. You can be an absolute scumbag, but if you’re up on Moonbeam Levels and Electric Intercourse and The Grand Progression and Rebirth of the Flesh and Train and Billy’s Sunglasses and Movie Star and Empty Room and the guitar solo on Just My Imagination…like, if you get IT, I got time to talk to you. There’s a place for you in my heart, because I understand that we’ve had the same profound experience at some point in our lives. We heard the future.



When I learned of his death, I was surprised by how composed I was. I opened my laptop to confirm he was gone. But, just as I started to get down about it, there he was in my head again…



Once upon a time in a land called Fantasy
Seventeen mountains stood so high
The sea surrounded them and together they would be
The only thing that ever made you cry
You said the devil told you that another mountain would appear
Every time somebody broke your heart
He said the sea would one day overflow with all your tears
And love will always leave you lonely

But, I say it’s only mountains and the sea…

Greatness Was Never Enough: The Life of Prince
A look at the genius of an icon.

Keith Murphy

The greatest artist of his era was never satisfied. Indeed, Prince Rogers Nelson — whose death on Thursday (Apr. 21) rocked pop culture enthusiasts, die hard music heads, instrumentalists and every rule-breaker worldwide — was not one to wear presumptive labels or revel in seemingly career-defining victories. When the ridiculously gifted Minneapolis, Minnesota, product signed his first recording deal with Warner Bros. in 1977 at the age of 19, he was billed as the next Stevie Wonder. Prince, a card-carrying Wonder fan, was having none of that. The 5-foot-3 bantam musical prodigy wanted to set the world on fire on his terms. His first single, “Soft & Wet,” was bubblegum soul on the outside and an obscene, sexual adventure on the inside: “Hey, lover, I got a sugarcane / That I wanna lose in you /B aby can you stand the pain…?” No, this was not “Isn’t She Lovely.”

It was a glimpse into the boundless future of one of pop’s most challenging, unpredictable and influential acts; an artist who got off on confounding his critics. When 1979’s “I Wanna Be Your Lover” made him into a R&B sensation, a restless Prince had other ideas. The game-changing Dirty Mind, released in 1980, was less soul and more brazen, X-rated, new wave rock and roll. Prince was Black. Never mind the eye-winking press releases that portrayed him as a half-Italian/African-American one-man-band force of nature who could outplay most of his peers on guitar, bass, drums and keyboards. Prince had no intention on being boxed in by race, or sartorial confines for that matter; he appeared on the album cover in a blazer and high-rise briefs.

The album’s flag-planting title track could have been a whitewashed, synthesized Gary Newman number. “When You Were Mine” boasted the best rhythm rock guitar of the ‘80s. The censorship destroying combination of the funk absorbed “Head” and punk-leaning “Sister” aimed straight for the gut. Prince explained his mixed up musical palette in a 1981 Rolling Stone interview: "We basically got all the new music and dances three months late, so I just decided that I was gonna do my own thing,” he said of his time growing up in a mainly white Midwestern city. “Otherwise, when we did split Minneapolis, we were gonna be way behind and dated. The white radio stations were mostly country, and the one black radio station was really boring to me. For that matter, I didn't really have a record player when I was growing up, and I never got a chance to check out Hendrix and the rest of them because they were dead by the time I was really getting serious. I didn't even start playing guitar until 1974.” Prince was an eye-winking quote monster, too. “I never got a chance to check out Hendrix…” It was Prince’s way of saying, Yeah, I play guitar… but don’t be lazy. Not every Black man with an ax is Jimi!

He was born into the music, for God’s sake. His father, jazz pianist John L. Nelson, bore the Prince Rogers moniker on stage alongside his mother Mattie Shaw, years before the name would evolve into a legendary mononym and bearer of the “Minneapolis sound.” After his parents’ divorce in 1966, Prince would spend time between both of them before branching off on his own, an early sign of his staunch, necessary and unwavering independence.

And so Prince went on to do whatever the hell he wanted. When he wanted his own funk band, he made live horns obsolete (a shock in ’81 for R&B-based acts), plugged in his Linn drum machine (which would become the back beat of his influential sound) and created The Time. When he felt like there was a space for a blush-inducing girl group fronted by his ridiculously gorgeous better half Denise “Vanity” Matthews (who also passed away this year), Prince put together, wrote and produced “nasty girls” Vanity 6.

Then the man got downright ambitious: "Oh, you don’t think I can be a pop chart marauding star? Here’s 1999, haters. What’s that? No one can compete with Michael Jackson? Well, I’m going to create a racially/gender mixed band called The Revolution, drop a modern day rock movie classic entitled Purple Rain, gross a shocking $70 million at the box office, sell over 14 million albums, play to sold out stadiums, unleash the weirdest omnipresent No. 1 single you’ve ever heard with 'When Doves Cry,' win a freaking Oscar just because and do it all while rocking the finest blouses...."

Prince owned from 1984 to 1987. He’s the reason we had parental advisory stickers on albums (The too-bold “Darling Nikki” literally kick-started the government-backed PMRC, which deemed Prince and other artists as too obscene for the virgin ears of music fans). His synth-heavy, keyboard, funk-rock-pop sound was seemingly everywhere from the Pointer Sisters to Janet Jackson. So what’s a world-beating superstar to do when he literally has the world at his feet? You deliberately turn your back on the plastic fandom; embracing your inner, quirky, rule-breaking bandleader.

In a lot of ways Prince was a mirror image of his friend, the ever-evolving jazz giant Miles Davis. The Purple Rain hype hadn’t even cooled off yet when Prince released 1985’s psychedelic, ‘60s rock-inspired Around the World in a Day, which contained arguably his purest pop triumph “Raspberry Beret.” He then shot for music geek heights with Parade, a jazz-classical-funk-rock-experimental work that showcased the rich contributions of his Revolution outfit, in particular guitarist Wendy Melvoin and keyboardist Lisa Coleman. And just in case there were still detractors out there who believed that Prince no longer had the ear of the masses, he walked out the studio with “Kiss,” a No. 1 hit so ubiquitous within the Prince canon (No bassline! Prince doing his best James Brown without a tightrope) that it still gets played at family functions and clubs like some cool national anthem.

Prince did it his way. His landmark 1987 double album Sign ‘o the Times remains his artistic zenith. Just download the mind-blowing “The Ballad of Dorothy Parker,” which contains some of his finest lyrical moments (“I took another bubble bath with my pants on…” = safe sex).

Throughout the ‘90s, Prince’s career hit its proverbial highs and lows. There were more hits like “Thieves in the Temple,” “Diamonds and Pearls,” “Cream,” “Sexy MF” and “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World…” But hardcore fans deemed his hip-hop obsessions as watering down his lane-switching sound. Again, Prince gave no Fs.

We should all thank him. Certainly, musicians of every stripe should celebrate a figure who had the balls to take on his own record company at a time when it would have been easy to just take the $100 million check and smile. When Prince changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol during a high profile battle with Warner Bros. over the label’s control of his music and masters to his mammoth catalog, the press was quick to mock him. But years later, his fight for artistic (and monetary) freedom in the music industry is now viewed as a Nostradamus moment. Now the recording industry is barely holding on; 360 deals (labels dipping their hands in touring and merchandising revenues) have become standard. Prince said no to recording contracts. By the late ‘90s, he was already utilizing the internet to sell his music and connect to fans before it was deemed as viable. Show off.

Prince never stopped. He never gave you a chance to put him in the nostalgia closet. When he made his 2004 comeback with the critically-acclaimed, sold-out Musicology tour, he included his album of the same name in the ticket packaging to boost record sales and chart movement. On its own, Musicology would have gone platinum, but Prince bucked the system and moved an extra million plus copies from ticket sales. Billboard balked at the enterprising move. Again, Prince won.

So who was Prince? A guitar rock god who could melt off collective faces with solos that have become legend. A protest artist who was so moved by the death of Freddie Gray in 2015 that he released a song entitled “Baltimore,” as well as put on a sold-out Rally 4 Peace concert in the city that had nearly burned down in anger just days before. Oh yeah, Prince knew that Black lives mattered. His Afro returned. And he never stopped dropping music. The most recent HITNRUN Phase One and Phase Two showed an artist who never rested on his legend.

Maybe we should have seen his shocking death coming. His plane made a surprise, mysterious hospital landing last week (Apr. 15) following the Atlanta stop on his stunning Piano & a Microphone tour. But even before that, something was different. It was just the man himself — live onstage with his prodigious talents telling stories about his now-deceased father. Like all of us, he wanted his pop’s attention, his admiration. “I can't play piano like my dad. How does dad do that?" the enigmatic great said in a rare moment of openness. No, Prince. You could play. It was just in your own follow-me-or-sit-down way.

Know genius.

i connected w/several of my best friends via Prince's music. i agree - we must share some mutation.

THAT is why i haven't been to any public tributes. that is why i have not been on the Internet since Saturday night. i haven't been ready to share my grief w/casual Prince fans. and i'm definitely not ready to share it w/ppl who don't know his music. i was at work when i heard the news and i overheard my coworkers immediately talking about his appearance on The New Girl. if THAT is what one thinks about when one hears that Prince has died then that's someone who cannot understand my grief and i don't want to share it w/them. and i figure those ppl were populating the tributes this weekend - i can't. they can have those and i'm glad they do but i need to be around ppl who get it.

THIS. I skipped most of the events in BK on Thursday... partly b/c I really just couldn't get out of bed... and partly b/c I'm not up for the Kiss and When Dove Cryers to be all up in my face. I can't. And there are but a small handful of DJ's I would trust to really do this. An ex OKP-er and I were hoping (still are) that there might be a brief reunion of the NPNY but so far have not heard much. So... we've planned our own celebration. We will play music loudly and drink banana daiquiris until we're blind.

261. "the only thing I've done Prince-related outside of the home"
In response to Reply # 251


  

          

was to go see OKP revolution75 and friends spin some DEEP Prince cuts and things the night of. We all talked the music, the impact of the loss, the real shit.

one of my favorite moments was talking to one of the people there while "Lady Cab Driver" was playing about how I loved how that song turned out in the 1999-era live shows, and RIGHT as I said that, they switched it into a 1999-era live rehearsal of that song (my favorite take of it, ever).

He (rev75) also played about 6 hours of straight Prince, no holds barred -- the hits, and the bootlegs live on the radio yesterday.

I'm wearing peach and black today.

People that get it, will get it

266. "i went to the african american museum on thursday"

wearing my prince baltimore t-shirt
i'd been feeling some kind of way about the earth still spinning
while prince is not here anymore
that just seems wrong
the lady at the museum let me and my friend get in free
after we spent 30 minutes communing about what he meant to us
and how we first got into his music
and the moments that mattered.
the same thing happened at the restaurant we were at
the chef came out to talk about how he wanted to take days off to go to the memorial
if there was going to be one
that ended up being a beautiful day
finding communal spirits sharing in our mourning

this passing felt so different
when mj passed i was in harlem and we all went to the apollo and cried together
being in baltimore.... ive felt so alone in my grief
the city moves on.... i dont understand

thanks to these posts.
thanks basaglia and whomever else has shared

267. "when i heard,"
In response to Reply # 253


  

          

i was at the cafeteria on campus
a friend called from new york, assuming i'd heard, and he was calling to see how i was holding up
i ended up bawling in the cafeteria
and (going to the bathroom when i got too loud)
i still find myself crying at random moments
like yesterday when i was at the grocery store
seems like something triggered this, dont even know what
the first thing i think about when i get up in the morning
is damn.
this really happened.
how?

In response to Reply # 245

i can remember the first time i heard prince
actually, i saw him
this was back in nairobi, so he wasnt that big on the radio
my mom finally had enough money to buy a vcr and colour t.v,
and we rented music videos from the video store (which we never returned because we never went back)
and one of these had the video for 'lets go crazy'
this was the kind of music i had never heard before
it took coming to america to really discover prince (and okp played a big part in this)
my first time really seeing him... i was living in NC at the time, he was playing in Philly
i got tickets, and we drove down to get to the concert in time
i had to turn around and drive back as soon as it was over because the next day was the first day of classes
(and i had to attend, in order to get into this one required class)

ever since... its been rare that prince is playing close to where im at and i dont go
even when broke
the last time i saw him was in baltimore.
i thought i would catch him during the piano and mic tour

what saddens me the most is that the possiblity of a prince tour just ended.

its still so surreal.

i completely agree that prince is not someone you convince to love
you either feel the music or dont
but when you feel it. omg
it never lets go.
you always find the one song that just speaks to the moment.

2016 can go fuck itself

I'm still listening to his stuff and having sporadic, unpredictable crying fits. Like yesterday 'Come' made me cry in public. Come!! Lol. Lord.

But tonight I'm going to a tribute with some Prince geeks. I'm only going bc they'll be there and I trust them not to trip if I start crying over songs like 'We Can Funk' (true story, that happened 2 days ago).

its the first realization i have every morning.
this is what the world is, without prince

i was only able to start listening to the music yesterday
and i dont think i was ready,
crying on the train, crying while walking
sunday i was crying at the grocery store
it just came out of nowhere

whats been really hard for me is not having someone close
who knows how hard this is
im just walking around dazed and the world keeps spinning

Listening sporadically to some songs is all I can manage. Listened to one podcast yesterday while doing some yardwork to try and keep busy. But I lost it somewhere in there and that lawn didn't get finished and I ended up with dusty tear tracks flowing down my face
