Prince in Essence

So much for the competition-now we know who's really bad. cool


In the latest edition of Essence magazine with Mary J. Blige on the cover (June 2008) there is a one page (page 67) write up on Prince.

"HE IS LEGEND"

The story talks about the great things he has done in his career and that he is about to hit 50. The picture is from Musicology era..... Nice little story...


Picture from the article




From their website

CULTURE

67 He Is Legend We celebrate Prince’s thirtieth anniversary in the game
68 Our Summer Music Hot List See who scored the No.1 spot
72 The Arts The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater celebrates a major milestone
82 Books Sidney Poitier’s new book; a collection of stories about African children; top ten beach reads

Prince deserves respect, and he always gets it througout the Black community, especially Jet, Essence and Vibe magazines.

Glad they showed the love again.
One small problem I had with the story was that it didn't mention anything he's done new in the 2000s.
They recognize his staying power, but no mention of any project, tour or performance post '90s.
