Since the recording of these interviews Dr. Umar has taken issue with the titling of Vlad’s previous parts of this interview even going so far as to calling him a ‘fuckboy’. Now Dr. Umar may have a point but taking the most salacious part of an interview no matter how minuscule is part of click bait marketing in order to gain as many views as possible. It probably lines Vlad’s youtube ad revenue bottomline but it also gives Dr. Umar more people watching his interviews.
Dr. Umar Johnson stopped by VladTV to talk about his thoughts regarding the murders of Prince, Michael Jackson and Tupac. Dr. Umar began by providing background on the deaths of the late celebrities. “Michael Jackson owned the rights to the Beetles; he owned a significant portion of Elvis’s catalog, who’s more popular than them, two guys? In the world of white music, and a black man owns the rights, Sony Records deliberately sabotaged Michael Jacksons last album…” Umar explained that if Michael had gone on tour, he would have had the liquid cash to pay off a debt he owed to Sony Records and he would have been able to keep his catalog. Umar went on to go into depth about how he feels the music industry works. “You know the music industry functions like any other white racist society; it gets down to lay down, so Michael was murdered.”

Griffin was (and continues to be) a supporter of the two men who have faced an onslaught of ridicule for sexual allegations in numerous separate cases. “There is a systematic effort to destroy every Black male entertainer’s image,” Eddie told DJ Vlad. “They want all of us to have an asterisk by our name.” Griffin believes, like Michael and Bill, that most African-American male entertainers are singled out for their illicit behavior. “Nobody leaves this business clean,” he stated while pointing out the cases of others. “You’re not going to die clean.”

Your thoughts please…should frivilous beef, and cooning and bufooning be left behind in the ’09? How can Hip Hop govern its bufoonery?
