Michael Jackson was without a doubt one of, if not the, biggest pop stars of our time. His music and life touched millions, and even in death his memory still lives on a year after his passing.
This Sunday (August 29) the King of Pop would have celebrated his 52nd birthday. In honor of his life and legacy, Spike Lee will be hosting “Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson Birthday Celebration” at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park for the second consecutive year.
MTV2’s “Sucker Free” host DJ Envy spoke with Brooklyn MC Fabolous about the event being thrown in his home borough.

“I mean Brooklyn is just one of the many places across the world who lived Mike’s music and, you know, Spike is probably one of those people that felt like it was only just die to give him his props in BK,” Fab told DJ Envy.
The event runs from noon to 5 p.m. Those attending can expect to hear classic MJ hits like “Beat It,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Thriller” and numerous others.
