My Thoughts On The Passing Of The Great Dr. Maya Angelou At 86.

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Full story click here)

MAYA-ANGELOU-large300I do not throw around the word great to much. Micheal Jordan was great. The late King Of Pop Micheal Jackson was great. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was great. Muhammad Ali was great. The late Whitney Houston was great. N.W.A was great. Former guest on “Music Inner City TV” Big Daddy Kane is great. Larry Bird was great. So many you can call great.

But a TRUE great person left us at the age of 86, Dr. Maya Angelou. When ever I saw a interview with her on TV I sat and listened. Because when she talked it was like going to school because I always learned something from this great African American lady.

Yes I was a little bothered when she came out and supported Hillary Clinton in 2008 instead of then Sen. Barack Obama. The first African American who had a chance to be President.

But she had her own reason. As did another great person “Magic” Johnson and another great businessman, Bob Johnson. But that did not stop me from having profound respect for Dr. Angelou. Her good friend and former guest on “M.I.C-TV” Oprah was not happy too because Ms. O was a huge supporter of Sen. Obama.

But anyway Dr. Maya Angelou was a towering force for African Americans. Just a flat out dynamic legendary person. A great great poet, a actor, a writer and much more. Maya would write a poem and read it and it will leave you crying. Just the way she delivered the poem. So emotional and so deep. So much thought put into it.

The world is a much better place because of the GREAT Dr. Angelou. That is for sure. RIP Dr. Angelou. We all love you.  By the way I have to leave you with this. HEY YOUNG PEOPLE IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD OF THIS GREAT PERSON…READ AND LEARN ABOUT THE GREAT DR. MAYA ANGELOU.  Gordon Curvey

Music Inner City News Magazine Bio: Prince

Prince Performs “Munity” on Arsenio Hall Show (Click here)

BET Awards '06 - ShowI have had conversations recently about the state of urban music today with a few friends and it was very interesting to hear other people’s opinion on the state of urban music today. I have my strong opinions.

Then I turn on “The Arsenio Hall Show” and saw a performer who has stood the test of time and marches to his own beat and for years has made his own style and does his own thing in the tough music business and his name is Prince. Prince has his own built in fans who follow him and his music for years and years since he arrived on the music scene in the late 80′s. He is one of a kind.

Prince is not a fan of the internet and that is a fact. He feels people are downloading music and many times artists are not getting paid what they should be paid. He made that point on Arsenio’s program. Fans of Prince know he really does not do to many interviews so it was great to see and hear the Purple One be a guest on Hall’s program and answer questions. He even answered questions from the audience.

The song “Munity” is pure FUNK!! Real music. The way music was back in the day. A song that makes you want to dance. A great tune. Classic Prince for sure. Young artist need to learn from a artist like Prince. He is a GREAT artist and a GREAT entertainer!! The one and only…Prince!
