Poem, My Tribute to Amy Winehouse

Dear Amy,
I thought you went to Rehab…
Maybe you just couldn’t Help Yourself…
Tears Dry on Their Own… or do they?
Take the Box of tissues for me, please…
I’m In My Bed — You Sent Me Flying…
I know you’re Stronger Than Me…
R.I.P.

Just Friends,
James Pong, a so-called fan

Jay-Z’s Epic Tribute To The Beastie Boys

Jay-Z filled in for The Beastie Boys after they were forced to pull out of All Points West after Adam Yauch was revealed to have cancer. Jay-Z made music history by becoming the first rapper to headline a major American rock festival as he performed Beastie Boys’ classic Licensed To Ill track, “No Sleep ‘Til Brooklyn.”

Poem, My Tribute to Michael Jackson

Dear Michael,
Black or White, You Rock My World.
The Way You Make Me Feel, I Just Can’t Stop Loving You.
Gone Too Soon, Ain’t No Sunshine.
2 Bad, I Can’t Help It.
Speechless, Heaven Can Wait, Cry.
Whatever Happens, Dont’ Walk Away.
Keep the Faith, Remember the Time.

Love,
James Pong, a Michael Jackson fan

Kareem "Biggs" Burke, Jay-Z and Dame Dash (Roc-A-Fella)

Dame Dash and Kareem “Biggs” Burke laughed on Monday (October 15) when they came up with a new crew name on the spot: “Block-A-Fella.” The “Block” in question refers to their new social-networking Web site, BlockSavvy.com, which has also served as a platform for Dame to blog and, maybe most significantly, resurrect Roc-A-Fella Records material from when Dash and Burke were tight with Jay-Z.

They were so tight that a few years ago, Dame wanted to pay tribute to his onetime inseparable buddy by having several artists on the label remake some of Hov’s tunes from his various albums. The project was called Beyond a Reasonable Doubt.
