"Later today / video of spike lee, snoop dogg, the ((((orb))), and myself at prospect park Michael Jackson day!" - Pharoahe Monch

Michael Jackson

"Michael Jackson's birthday is being remembered around the country, but unanswered questions about his death shadow the celebration of his life. [August 29th] would have marked the King of Pop's 52nd birthday, had he not passed away last June, at age 50. Recent developments in the music icon's murder trial may call for the exhuming of his remains. The controversy makes it difficult to celebrate Michael Jackson's birthday, when he may have to be laid to rest yet again." [AC]

Spike Lee, DJ Spinna Pharoahe, Snoop, and many others didn't have trouble celebrating Michael Jackson's birthday in Prospect Park on Sunday. More about Pharoahe/Snoop along with two more sets of pictures coming later. For now, this first set of pictures continues, below...
