I just came across this video of Freddie Gibbs telling the story of Michael Jackson's return to Gary, Indiana back in 2003. If you didn't know, Gary is where I was born and raised. I was still living there at this time and from what I remember it happened pretty much the way Gibbs is telling it.
In 2003 there were two things we thought we would never see; a black man as president of the United States and Michael Jackson walking the streets of Gary. So when it happened it was like a miracle. Pure comedy!
