The world stopped and it hasn’t quite figured out how to get going again, as the universe deals with the loss of one of the greatest icons the music world has ever seen, Prince Rogers Nelson.
The owner and publisher of The Source, L. Londell McMillan, was a close friend of Prince’s and his former attorney. McMillan is widely known for being the lawyer who helped Prince emerge victorious from his legal battles with Warner Bros. in the early 90s, forever changing the way artists view themselves in the marketplace. Prince ultimately explained McMillan’s freeing of his musical output from the binding Warner Bros. contracts, after an 18-year turbulent relationship with the label, as “emancipation,” which would also be the name of his 1996 double-platinum release, America’s fourth best-selling triple disc album ever.
Watch above as Londell discusses his relationship with Prince and reflects on the history they made with CNN.
