Has the King of Pop’s legacy changed over the last 5 years?
Stars gathered Wednesday night in Berverly Hills to celebrate an occupation that does a lot of the work behind the scenes but rarely gets to go on stage to collect awards — music executives. The 7th Annual Toast To Urban Music Executives turned the spotlight on the people who make it all possible, honoring names including Eesean “E” Bolden (A&R Capitol Records), Michael “Blue” Williams (President of Primary Wave Management) and G.O.O.D. Music’s very own 5 Time Grammy Award Winner, Malik Yusef.
But Wednesday also marked the 5th anniversary of the late Michael Jackson’s death and HipHollywood wanted to know what people thought about his legacy in 2014.
“You don’t really realize how special a person is until they die unfortunately and their music is just as strong as it was 10, 20 years ago. In my opinion, he is still making better music than everybody today and he is dead,” honoree, Eesean Bolden told cameras.
Find out what stars including Slim from the group 112, and Ernest Lee Thomas had to say about about MJ’s legacy by watching the video above.
