A year after Michael Jackson's death, multiple artists (including rappers Ludacris, Busta Rhymes and Drake) reflect on his legacy. "I know there's a lot of people that … may have been influenced by him and you may see certain things in music and dances. But at the end of the day, he's untouchable," Ludacris said of Jackson's legacy. "I feel like the best way to pay homage and to preserve his legacy is to let him stand alone and continue to be the star that we remember him as." Busta says the "The King Of Pop" needs a new nick-name. "It ain't even just the King of Pop no more. I think we gon' bury that and we gon' give you the new attribute that goes along with your greatness, as the 'King of Music,' " Busta said.
Young Money star Drake recently spoke on Jackson saying "That was sort of my reference point; that phenomenon of Michael," he said about a recent project he was doing. "He was young and had the world excited and anticipating his every move. That was my homage to him and the impact that he had on the world that I live in. It's also … great for people to say. Especially, unfortunately what happened to him, just to honor him was great."
