ROGER “PRINCE” NELSON TO GET A STREET

Here's a fun fact, did you know Prince released over 40 albums? His most popular album was obviously "PURPLE RAIN" but he wrote so much music, he had to create groups and give them songs. The Time, Vanity 6, Shiela E, Apollonia, are some of the groups and solo acts he wrote for. He also wrote songs for Sinead O'Connor, Chaka Khan, Morris Day, and many more. I personally think that alone gives him the due to receive a street in his hometown of Minneapolis. The neighborhood council is currently getting permission and of course, they will have a ceremony for the event.

He also stood up for musicians to have ownership of their masters and did not collaborate with other musicians if they did not own their work in the last half of his life. Prince was entangled in a "war" with record labels and this is the reason for him changing his name to the "symbol." It all had everything to do with ownership of his masters. Did you know Prince denied working with rapper NAS because he didn't own his masters at the time? Such an interesting person. Prince quietly played piano on a Mobb deep song which also featured Snoop Dogg, and unfortunately, died suddenly in April 2016 after an accidental opioid overdose at age 57.
