We get deep with Andre Cymone in a new interview where we delve into his new album, Black Lives Matter, tour dates, performing with The New Power Generation and he goes there when it comes to his friend PRINCE.
In an extremely candid interview, Cymone delves into how much has really changed when it comes to race relations from then to now. Nothing is off limits when we discuss his upbringing with Prince and sets the record straight about many things from his perspective including the first appearance on American Bandstand, who came up with his wardrobe, and who did “Do Ma, Baby” really belong to.
It is important to Cymone and myself that we make sure people are not revising Prince history. Andre was very forthcoming talking in detal about things that he has never talked about before or hasn’t talked about in quite a long time. We appreciate Cymone opening up to us for Prince’s legacy and to actually maintain that legacy. We walk the walk and so does Cymone. So were people really Prince’s manager at the start of his career? We touch base on everything because just because it says it happened on a REELZ special doesn’t make it fact.
Make sure to pick up Andre’s new album 1969, which shows Cymone’s growth as an artist, musician, and songwriter.

John Blackwell Jr. passed away on July 4th, 2017 at the age of 43. Blackwell was a phenonomal drummer playing for Cameo, Patti Labelle, Justin Timberlake, and the musicician’s musician; PRINCE.
John Blackwell was suffering and recovering from brain tumors he experienced while touring in Japan last year. He couldn’t use the left arm and other bodily functions. We always thought john would recover but it wasn’t meant to be.
In this special podcast episode, we pay tribute to the drumming legend that was John Blackwell. He was taken way too soon.
He recently as of 2013/14 recorded an album with PRINCE entitled NPGQ that featured John, Gouche, Marcus Anderson, amd Xavier. John worked with PRINCE at a time where he was taking on more of a jazzy feel with albums such as The Rainbow Children, Xpectation, & N.E.W.S. to name a few Song staples of Blackwell’swhen he was in the New Power Generation would be The Everlasting Now, D.M.S.R., & Shhh, just to name a few.
