On June 25, 2009 The King of Pop passed away from a cardiac arrest due to a drug overdose at his house in Los Angeles. Michael Jackson’s death triggered a global outcry to which the day music, gossip and all other media news stopped. To this day fans and music lovers still gather at his estate, hollywood star, and Motown headquarters to pay their respect. Michael Jackson will never be forgotten for the major impact he had on the entertainment industry and no one will ever take his place as The King of Pop. Rest in peace Michael.

Last night, MTV showed a documentary called Better Than Good Enough. The documentary follows Toronto’s hometown hero Drake on a 4 month journey from city to city around the world performing live and putting together his album Thank Me Later. Shout out to yardie for the clips.
