DJ Jazzy Jeff presents: He's the King, I'm the DJ

2009 was a banner year for celebrity deaths. And that being said, none were more ballyhooed than Michael Jackson.

Considering the nature of his relationship with the media, I suppose the circus was inevitable (the shady doctor and babies mama drama couldn't have helped matters).

Still the endless analysis and sudden posthumous fawning in which the press engaged was nauseating.

With this tribute Jazzy Jeff reminds us why regardless of his personal life, Mike's contribution to music is beyond question. Culled from 4 decades in the game, this mix of almost fifty jams includes the all the obligatory highlights as well as some exclusive remixes.

Props to Jeff for giving the King of Pop a royal send off.
