In an emotional interview, Stevie Wonder revealed some of his last words to his longtime friend and fellow music legend Aretha Franklin before her death on Thursday.

“She wasn’t able to speak back, but her family felt that she could hear me, and so I just said all the things that I’ve always said and told her to say hello to my sister – that I lost this year as well,” Wonder said on “CBS This Morning” while choking up about his visit to Franklin’s home in Detroit on Tuesday. “But, you know, she did incredible music, incredible singer. She touched every genre. Every singer was influenced in some way by the way she sang, and they will forever be influenced by her because of her voice, her emotion, her sincerity is unforgettable.”

Wonder said he and Franklin were talking about collaborating as recently as two months ago.

“We’d been talking about it. There was a song that I had written called ‘The Future,’ and we were going to sing it together. And so,” Franklin said, pausing as he was overcome with emotion, “I thought I cried my last tear.”

He pointed to Franklin’s power to transform songs and make them her own.

“I knew ‘Respect’ from Otis Redding, but when I heard her sing it, it was like hearing a whole new song. Amazing what she did with the song, originally done by Otis Redding,” Wonder said. “But, you know, another similarity to that is the song that I wrote, ‘Until You Come Back to Me.’ … The greatest gift for me was when I heard her sing ‘Until You Come Back to Me.’ Someone said on one of the channels yesterday that when she sings your song, she takes it, and you don’t get it back. And that’s what she did.”

“I don’t mind it at all,” he added.

Wonder said being raised in Detroit, Franklin was one of his great inspirations.

Franklin’s family said the artist died from advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type. The cause of death was confirmed by Franklin’s oncologist, according to the family’s statement.

Radio station stops playing Kodak Black Songs over insensitive comments after Nipsey’s Longtime Partner

Published

Reports say that an LA-based radio station would no longer bump Kodak Black songs after he made a highly insensitive comment about Lauren London, Nipsey Hussle’s longtime partner.

He said he wanted to begin a relationship with her when she moved on from Nipsey Hussle in a video that started circulating on Saturday. These were his words.

“Lauren London that’s baby, though. She about to be out here single. She’s finna be a whole widow out here,”. “I’ll be the best man I can be for her. I’ll give her a whole year. She might need a whole year to be crying and (expletive) for (Nipsey).”

“I ain’t trying to shoot (my shot) at her.” he added. “I’m saying, listen. She can do two, three years. I’ll try to be like the friend if you need to holla or a shoulder to lean on. She can call my line.”

Hussle was shot and killed at his Los Angeles clothing store March 31. The rapper was well-known and celebrated for his humanitarian efforts. He and Lauren shared a son together in addition to creating a blended family with their children from past relationships.

The suspected gunman, Eric Holder, has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday. He also pleaded not guilty to two attempted murder charges.

In response to Black’s Instagram Live comments, Power 106 FM DJ Justin Credible said his station will not play his music.

“We stand with the family of Nipsey Hussle and are appalled by the disrespectful and poor comments made by Kodak Black,” Credible tweeted Saturday. “With that, Power 106 will not support Kodak Black’s music.”

Rappers The Game and T.I. also called out Black for his comments.

The Shade Room reported The Game told Black and others who had negative things to say about Hussle to keep his name and London’s name out their mouths.

“Hey, Kodak Black: You outta pocket. … Fix that (expletive). Quickly, expeditiously,” T.I. said in an Instagram video. “You outta pocket. Ain’t nobody else gon say it. … If I see you, I’ma say it to your face. You outta pocket… Get your (expletive) self together.”

Black made another Instagram Live video in response, saying, “Man, listen. I said what I said. Y’all tryin’ to misconstrue what I said (…) don’t give a (expletive) what y’all talkin’ about,” he said. “T.I., man, I don’t care. I’m in Georgia right now. I don’t care.”

The Shade Room reported Black ended up apologizing early Sunday.

“If I disrespected you Lauren London, in any shape or form, I’m sorry, even though I didn’t,” he said. “And rest in peace to dude. Y’all already know what I said. I said dude encouraged me to do (expletive) for the community. But, anyhow, my bad to them two. But, like, for all you other people like trying to fake act like y’all little boy-ing me on the internet or checking me on the internet, if that’s how y’all feel, that’s how y’all wanna feel, I got a whole tour … I’m in Georgia right now and tomorrow I’ll be in Norfolk, Virginia, like wherever y’all see me, if that’s how y’all feel, that’s how y’all feel.”

Black has his own things to be concerned about. The Associated Press reported that he is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct after a woman claimed he raped her after a concert in 2016.
