DJ ShOw pays homage to the Purple One.

I was in complete shock when I read the news that we lost one of the all time greats in music. Honestly, I'm in denial. Prince was one of those people that was supposed to live forever. Of course, this is true only his art.

His musical genius was so great, he has influenced every artist in every genre after him, whether directly or indirectly.

I paid my respects by playing a few of his songs as well as songs he either wrote or produced. And with a catalogue like The Artist has, it was tough to pick enough for a 26 minute mix.

And he was still the only man I know that could pull any woman he wanted while wearing their clothes... Come to think of it, I was probably conceived while some of his music was playing in the background...
