'I Want You Back': Michael first found fame alongside his brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon in family band The Jackson 5, who were signed to Motown. The group hit number 1 with their first single 'I Want You Back' in 1970, and quickly beat out The Supremes to become Motown's biggest-selling artist. Here, they perform on The Ed Sullivan Show.
'Thriller' is released: The John Landis-directed, fourteen minute visuals for his 1983 single 'Thriller' is still considered one of the most iconic of all time. Costing half a million dollars, it was the most expensive video ever at the time. It's also the only video ever to be inducted into the Library of Congress' National Film Registry as a work of "important enduring importance to American culture"
The Moonwalk: Jackson's gravity-defying, signature dance move is one of his most iconic attributes. It was first premiered on TV special Motown 25 in 1983 during a solo performance of his track 'Billie Jean'. "There are times when you know you are hearing or seeing something extraordinary...that came that night," said Rolling Stone reporter Mikal Gilmore. The performance has gone down in history as one of the defining moments of Jackson's career.
What are your thoughts??

Taking a break i had to respond and repost this video because it hit home. I had to wrestle with this and my entire business team because for many years companies,corporations, entertainment people and people kept telling me you need to be a social media influencer, more followers more this yada yada yada. Many couldnt even sit back to sit down to understand that what i was called to do was history in the making. Being the first in hip hop to be discovered by The Miracles(Founding group of Motown) and Motown Legends and bridging the gaps Classic Motown, Hip Hop Pop Culture and The U.S. Military(Dept of Defense) that will.never be duplicated again in American History. Speaking to hundreds of thousands of youth across this country, military men and women, veterans,first respomders and all their families while making great music, accomplishing accolades upon accolades across the board and being groomed by The Jolly Green Giants and the fore fathers of Music, The #Motown Legends and Dynasty. Motown Icons taught me that being an influencer is changing peoples lives across the board for the better not just posts, claiming followers,cars, money etc but changing lives from the inside out. God called me to open up the door for the minority community to do something great and show the youth of all colors and creed that you can make a difference if you work hard. Its hard for many to believe that i have done all this at my age and walk in the circles of giants and power because i dont show up with smoke and mirrors and a big entourage like a circus. The most influential and powerful people are not loud and flashy and i was blessed to be taught by the powers that be. So now the world needs to understand whether they like it or not that there is an #AfricanAmerican male who has done the impossible and is a true #GlobalAmbassador and Advocate of Music and Entertainment making history and influencing people across the world.

Last night I saw @pjmorton at @bluenotetokyo . It was an amazing show. Such incredible musicianship and songwriting. I met the bassist @bcockerham81 after the set and I had a quick chat with him about his p. bass. I told him that before seeing his performance I was cutting up some Marvin Gaye samples at home so I had been listening to James Jamerson’s bass lines all day (Another p. Bass player/demi god). The brief encounter and the show were such an inspiration that I couldn’t sit still today. So I made this. A track heavily influenced by one of my favorite DJs/track maker @amerigo.gazaway . Enjoy! @pickupbeats#pickupbeats
