When we interviewed up-and-coming rapper Kid Cudi a while back, he told us the Jackson 5’s “Can You Feel It” was his favorite music video of all time, so we asked him what he thought about the Michael Jackson of today. On the day of Michael Jackson’s death, it seems fitting to re-post his comments:
I’m a super Michael Jackson fan. I never judge anybody, I try not to and sometimes I joke around and I play around and make fun of people. Michael has got a good spirit, he’s misunderstood – I’m a Michael fan forever. He inspired me and millions of other people, he’s the reason why people still wanna create and create and create. Everyone’s trying to top his shit but you really can’t ‘cause it’s so dope.
