Dearly beloved… we are gathered here today to celebrate this thing called life… Prince’s life to be exact. Long time fan and intimate friend, Spike Lee, is hosting the biggest shindig to commemorate the life and trajectory of the “Purple One” the only way he knows how – by having a big ol’ block party in Crooklyn/Brooklyn NYC. The “Prince Born Day Purple People Party“ takes place tomorrow afternoon between the hours of 12pm and 6pm at the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration – Party will be emceed by Spike and MTV’s Veejay Sway. Attendees are to dress in purple and are reminded (via AD) that this is a “grown folks” party – no whipper snappers or silly antics will be tolerated. Moreover, Spike uploaded a pic onto his Instagram of a fresh pair of Air Jordans sporting of the legendary artist on both sides – perhaps a preview of what he’ll be wearing the day of? we’ll have to wait and see. The gorgeous purple sneakers are a Van Monore creation – and to see full pic, peep it above. On another note, are any of our loyal readers set to party like it’s 1999? Comment below and let us know.
