Peace Out to Neverland Ranch. It’s looking like the housing crisis is fucking with everyone…. Even the King Of Pop. Mike’s problems are a little bit bigger than a bad sub prime loan, but his spot Neverland has been foreclosed on! Mike has an outstanding balance of a little more than $24.5m and if its not paid by March 19th his pad, Neverland Ranch, is going to be sold to the highest bidder on the courthouse steps. Dag, that’s serious. We need some kind of investigative reporter to get to the bottom of this whole Mike Jackson thing. And not some bootleg journalist who is trying to become popular by taking advantage of Mike, but someone who spends about 3 years researching all things Micheal Jackson and figures out what the hell is going on with him. I want some Enron level investigation into my guy. It seems like he is just gotten to the point where he is the inept CEO of a major corporation only he cant be fired. This man has sold a ton of records, literally, 500m+ at last count, and he is forever in financial peril. Is he of the mindset of “fuggit, I want my last check to bounce?” Does he not just give a fug, or is he simply overwhelmed and helpless now to all of the people taking advantage of him. It is just a sad sad story.
This is some new hot shit. Rhymefest has done what he is calling a dedication album to the King Of Pop because he is an admitted fan of MJ. Its brought to us from Chicago rapper Rhymefest and Grammy-nominated producer Mark Ronson. Inspired from Jackson’s earlier work, Rhyme and Mark come up with some pretty nice jams. It is available for free on Marks website as well as on Rhymefest’s myspeezie page. Check it out and read up on the work in a review here.
This is the album cover for Janet Jackson’s upcoming Discipline album due out in late February. The first single and video is called Feedback… its aight.. I guess Janet is trying to get her Madonna on, and I am not mad at that. If Madonna can keep selling out tours and making records, why can’t Miss Jackson… or soon to be Mrs. Dupri. Speaking of touring… there is a rumor of a Jackson 5 reunion. Janet has suggested the Mike get back to making music and get on stage with the brothers and her. I am interested to see how this turns out.
