Back in the day when both were SMOKIN, the debate would be Prince or Michael Jackson? Who was better?
I'd say when it came to music, although Michael was around longer, Prince was on top because he wrote all of his songs and played all of the instruments.
Michael had to be way on top on the entertainment level. Prince could jam and rock and give one helluva concert, but M.J. was in a league all to himself. (Think of all the wannabes, even today cough*Usher*cough, cough*Chris Brown*cough*)
"Old heads" like me remember that it was Michael that caused MTV to play videos of Black artists!
People often say they are offering prayers for the family of someone who died, but in this case, the family needs it regardless.
Michael Jackson, R.I.P.
I guess Rx drugs and "Jesus juice".
