The whole world knows that I’m a huge Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Prince buff.But the other beast of a soul artist that I love to death is Marvin Gaye, of course! His music deeply expresses the soul of a man.The most bewildering thing about Marvin that I’ve come to understand more in my adult years is how he was able express his life experiences so artistically despite all his traumatic upheaval. I mean, his pops was a cross dressing preacher that practically despised his own son. I’ll never forget the day I found out his dad took him out, the day before his birthday! I couldn’t understand it and I was sad as hell. But life is wild that way. All that pain he endured led to greatness.

(Tom Joyner interview) The most honest interview I think I’ve ever seen an artist do while they’re STILL dealing with their issues, not after.


His dad was illmatic!

And a suggested read… Divided Soul: The Life Of Marvin Gaye by David Ritz (who actually co wrote Sexual Healing)
This book will change your life and have you paying more attention to Marvin’s lyrics. I guarantee it!

I grew up with his music like so many so I thought it was only right to bless the world with a mix. Included here
