The police think something is strange about Prince's death and that is nothing to you? eek

I am sure there are things Charles cannot say because the investigation is still open but all along he has been hinting that this is not an open and shut case concerning a simple overdose.

I don't think Chazz knows much of anything about it, why would he? He's a cousin, not one of the heirs, nor a sibling. Notice no other cousins or other family members are saying anything about it, at least nothing I've seen nor heard. Saying his death was strange says nothing at all, we all already know it was strange in spite of what minimal official info we've gotten.

I'll have to listen again, don't have a straight 3 hours these days to just listen too many distractions. But... from what I have heard it is very much worth it. Liked what the interviewer said in the beginning, and he definitely let's Chazz finish his thoughts. Interesting history stuff. The only thing I haven't heard him confirm what Tyka said, maybe that's in the stuff I wasn't able to hear but it is frustrating there's no united front on what happened to him.

It is a good interview and I am going to have to listen to it again in parts. The last part is just Charles talking about stuff they did growing up and some of the history of their teen group. Very funny and cool to hear about that time.

I am glad Mike let Charles vent about how he is being left out concerning information and had to have his own sitdown with the cops to get info. The sibs are actiing strange even toward other family members and they all seem to frustrated( who has security at a memorial service and why was Omarr up in Charles's face). What in God's green earth could be so bad that other family memembers are not allowed to know anything?.My God if he had a terminal illness or just killed himself what is the big deal with the secrets. ( They act like he ebola or something ) Maybe Charles has a big mouth but he was family and he would stop making a rukus if they just told him what was going on.

I am glad he put it out there about the cameras having been removed and how Prince could have gone down the street to Hazelton whom he had knowledge of because of his sister but instead got a non doctor from California. As if he was getting substandard help courtesy of the people around him. It is shady as hell.

Lots of question. Regarding the highlighted part, I feel like a damn pendulum swinging around in circles. But at least we know the investigation is still pending that was a big question.

Listen Up. Chazz isnt even a first cousin.

Maybe not even a second.

Cops usually only talk to siblings not cousins so removed I cant even count the number.

He is writing a book, and needs attention.

He has never gotten over the fact Morris took his place as drummer.

Chazz needs to take a seat.

—Chazz never said he was a first cousin but they did grow up together. Not unusual for people who grew up in a segregated community to know all their cousins. I know and associate with 5 and 6 cousins. If Chazz lives in Eden Pirie why would he not be familiar with cops who I believe are the ones dropping info to the local media. Do you think it is okay for the local media to get tips and not family members? Chazz talked at length about being replaced and said he is only bothered by the fact that Andre keeps lying about the entire stiuation and remember Andre already apologized about saying he brought Prince his first guitar. So Andre did caught in one lie. Chazz was clear that he had been satisfied with his life and makes a good point that in the end Prince did not have a lot of family around which was his choice and look how his life ended. He had moron employees who had a non-doctor come from another state to administer care when he was suppose to be gravely ill. Also so what if Charles wants to write a book. If idiot ex-wives can write books and own trademarks why can’t his own cousin have a say. Why does family have to shut and go away while everybody and their mom spins their stories
and makes a dime. Andre will right a book next and I guess that would be okay.

So which lies of Chazz's are you believing?

The interview where he said P was perfectly healthy and had sworn off drugs at an early age?

The interview where he said the family knew of the addiction and tried to get him help in every way you can think of?
Take a seat Chazz.
