What a day, I literally just got a text from a family group chat saying "PRINCE IS DEAD?" I had no idea he was even sick. I hadn't heard any of the stories about him having the flu, or being in and out of a pharmacy. Such a sad day. Prince was the coolest dude, it is so sad to see him go. I don't have much to say about this boss, so I'll let Charlie say it for me.
Great story from Charlie Murphy, and exactly the type of crazy shit I picture Prince doing. Here are some of his greatest hits to remember him by. R.I.P. PRINCE.
