Some more MIDI Muthafuggin' (that's that new ish for yall folks mane) Marc for you folks out there.
Please check this thang out just for the sheer game of MJ and MIDI. I already know it something classical homey.
p.s. Also, check out MIDI's explanation for the project below with the link. MJ lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Of course I'd like to thank God for blessing me with talent and drive and for blessing me with platforms to share His gifts. I've made thousands of beats, but this time there was a closeness to the music I've never experienced before.
Michael Jackson was my FIRST inspiration in music. There is literally no time in my life that isn't accompanied by one of his songs. Like so many others I was glued to the television, radio, tape, record, and cd player whenever he was there. His death, or murder rather, came as a shock to me and the rest of the world. His music is so awesome that even though you've never met him, you felt like you knew him.
Coincidentally I lost my grandmother Birdie Shivers days after MJ's death and it felt like I lost 2 family members the same week. Before the tragedy he was so reclusive that it still hasn't really clicked with a lot of folks that he's gone...maybe gone isn't a word to use in this case.
He left us with so much music that he'll never leave our memories. These instrumentals were created as a thank you to the greatest artist of all time, and in hope that my music inspired by MJ, will inspire YOU the listener to pursue your passion whatever it is with a sense of integrity, respect for the past, appreciation for the present, and an optimistic view of the future.
If you downloaded this project and are to young to have experienced new MJ's music, I pray that this tribute will inspire you to travel back in time with all of the music he has left you with as a time line of his life as well as history. He left you with over 40 years of magic..please experience it at any capacity.
I also want to thank all of my supporters..and there are too many to name and you know who you are...right?! I want to thank my parents for buying me MJ's music and for not getting angry with me when i scuffed up the kitchen floor from practicing my moonwalk. A special thanks also goes to Cole Audett for donating his time and talents towards the cover art for this projects.
In memory of Michael Jackson and my grandmother Birdie Shivers
