Prince, legendary performer and musical genius, has passed away at age 57. Authorities in Minnesota confirmed earlier today that they had been called to the artist’s famous Paisley Park Studios complex to investigate a fatality, but have only just confirmed that it was in fact Prince who had passed. The singer was hospitalized on April 15th after his private jet made an emergency landing due to an unspecified medical emergency. A couple of days later he appeared at Paisely Park to reassure fans that he was ok. Prince’s influence on popular music and Hip-Hop specifically can not be understated, and as I’m sure my fellow children of the 80′s can attest, this is an especially tragic loss. R.I.P Prince
