Two years ago, the world received major shock when they discovered Michael Jackson was dead. While he was not a hip hop artist, Jackson has been very influential to all aspects of music. Throughout his lengthy career, Michael Jackson has worked with nearly every genre.

Michael Jackson's history in the music industry goes without saying. As a member of The Jackson 5ive, as a child, he helped keep Motown Records on top. Later in his career, as an adult, he helped Jive and Epic Records of Sony make records that still exist, sales-wise.

Many consider Jackson's 1982 release, Thriller, to be the greatest album of all-time. Selling 25 million copies in the United States, alone, it is the highest-selling, by far. Today, Hip Hop Vibe is going to take a trip dowm memory lane, featuring videos and interviews of Jackson, along with the regular dose of music videos, new songs, articles, and interviews.
