[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.”

Lord Jamar shared his thoughts on slavery and Native Americans during a recent interview with VladTV, and the New York rapper said that there is substantial evidence to support that Africans are what we now think of as Native Americans. He explained that he has read about early settlers lying to unknowing younger generations about how they took from Africa and making them believe that they weren’t born in America.

The conversation also brought up evolution and skin color, which Lord Jamar believes starts with the mind, not geographic location. He also disagreed with evolution, as he told DJ Vlad that Black people were in Europe long before white people.

During a Twitter rant this year, Azealia Banks tweeted, “N***as don’t hear you unless you pass that paper bag test,” which was referring to women with lighter skin tones. The controversial rapper then revealed that she has been bleaching her skin, which Lord Jamar addressed during a recent interview with VladTV.

The Brand Nubian rapper explained that he feels that all types of body modification show signs of self-hatred, as he includes weaves, bleaching, and surgery in the same category. He then added that it all speaks to dissatisfaction about one’s self, and Jamar believes that there are different degrees of modification.

Lord Jamar, who has been outspoken about rappers and male celebrities wearing more feminine clothes, shared his thoughts on Jaden Smith recently saying that he wears skirts so that kids in the future don’t get teased. The rapper explained that while it seems that Jaden is trying to be a martyr in the situation, Lord Jamar believes that he’s adding to the feminization of all men in society.

Based on the severe backlash he has gotten the past few days, I am going out on a limb that he won’t be pulling this stunt anymore. On the surface, let’s hope that this backlash will nip this trend in the bud, Kanye withstanding.

This colossal push to strip men of their masculinity has been popping all over pop culture the last few years and it seems like an hidden agenda has been set in motion. What is that agenda? It’s just ‘fashion’ is the sentiment provided by his childhood friend Marlon Wayans who got into a twitter war with outspoken rapper/actor Lord Jamar who took exception to his style of dress for his interview on The View.

Is this a trend you support?
