Stars Remember James Brown

(DiR) Nas, Snoop and Ice Cube have all issued statements about the passing James Brown

"I had the opportunity to meet him and present an award to him this year with Al Shaprton , Jesse Jackson and others. I spoke in front of hundreds in his honor. I looked directly at him. He smiled while I told him how I used his music with mine and how much he's done for us and how I love him. I'm lucky to have had that moment, shook his hand. He was pure greatness." - Nas

"James Brown was the first solo singer that I loved as a kid. He was not only the Godfather of Soul, but the Godfather of Funk and Rap. Music will never be the same..." - Ice Cube

"I am hurt. That's my Godfather, my soul inspiration, the hardest working man in showbizness of all time. He'll be missed, but his music and his legacy will live on through me, in everyway you can imagine. Soul brother #1...we miss you James Brown." - Snoop Dogg
