Michael Jackson Inc., the new book by Zack O’Malley Greenburg (author of the Jay Z biography Empire State of Mind), reveals that Jackson, known by many as the greatest entertainer of all time, was also a revolutionary when it came to business. Jackson was one of the first pop stars to launch his own clothing line, record label, sneakers, and video games, creating a fundamental shift in the monetization of fame and paving the way for entertainer-entrepreneurs like Jay Z and Diddy. Greenberg discusses Jackson’s far-reaching impact on the music – and business – of hip-hop with legendary hip-hop artists Fab 5 Freddy and DJ Clark Kent.
