Earlier today I bought a copy of Toure’s new book on Prince I Would Die 4 U: Why Prince Became An Icon. Toure put it out a couple weeks ago, and it looks like a pretty short read, only 100 something pages, where Toure attempts to dissect the things that made Prince, and how he became such an icon in pop music, from interviews with people who were the closet to him and research he’s done. Even ?uestlove calls it the ultimate Prince book, so it must be good! I’m going to try and read a little bit of it tonight, but I got a lot of stuff I got to do, so I might not really be able to get into it until the weekend.
Also, earlier today I was finally able to watch the panel discussion that Toure led about Prince and his new book from last week, that featured special guest Questlove, Danyel Smith among others. It was a great discussion, and they went very in-depth in the discussion talking about race, religion, music, and even Prince’s personal issues that made him who he is. For those interested, here’s a link to the discussion.
P.S. I’ve been in a Prince kick lately, and been revisiting a lot of his albums. I use to have all his albums on my computer, so I’ve been having to put his albums back on m computer lol. Oh yea… and I still think Prince was badder than Michael Jackson! lol
