R.I.P. Prince

2016-04-21 by Benjamin Kuettel STAFF | 136 Comments
Prince Rogers Nelson, better known as Prince, has reportedly passed away in his estate and studio. Cause of death for the 57-year-old singer is yet to be determined, and an investigation is underway.

Initially, hazy rumors of a death at his estate were circulating, but his publicist has confirmed that it is indeed him.

Prince had been suffering from flu-like symptoms for several weeks until his death.

I had a drunken conversation with a buddy of mine after Bowie died discussing who we thought might not see 2017...I went through the usual suspects and out of nowhere he said Prince and we both pissed ourselves (seemed funny at the time)

Not so funny now. He texted me and he hates himself right now...

Over the last couple years as I got way more into R&B music, I finally started to appreciate the brilliance of Prince. 1999, Purple Rain, Sign o' the Times... and those are just the MOST essential albums in a body of work filled with gems. Gutted right now.

Still sad.

I find it interesting though, that he was so adamant about keeping his work off the internet and being dispersed through media. Now that he's dead, how are we celebrating his life and work? By doing what he fought so hard against. It's a weird situation.
