[video] Dr. Umar Johnson on Prince, Michael Jackson & 2Pac’s Deaths Being Set Up

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.”

Dr. Umar Johnson recently sat down with VladTV and offered up his thoughts on education and the African American community, as well as his plans to open up his own school.

When asked about why he thinks that education isn’t celebrated in hip-hop, Dr. Umar Johnson told DJ Vlad that an emphasis isn’t put on education in the African American communities in general, especially for boys. He added that he started caring about black history after taking a mandatory class in elementary school, and later learning that he was related to Frederick Douglass during his first family reunion.

During the sit-down, Dr. Johnson revealed that he’s planning to name his residential academy after his famous ancestor, Douglass, and Marcus Garvey. While he doesn’t have the exact location acquired yet, Dr. Johnson said that he knows the student body will be 100% compromised of black students. However, he added that he couldn’t advertise the school as being exclusively for black children, although there are schools for LGBT children.
