According to Page Six, Prince’s vast music vault may be opened soon for the world to hear, and money to be made. Prince’s longtime lawyer and manager L. Londell McMillian and Charles Koppleman, former head of EMI Music, have been placed in charge of the late musician’s treasure trove of assets. Bremer Trust, court approved administrator of Prince’s estate, appointed McMillian and Koppleman. Koppleman said in  a statement, “There’s so much to be done with this estate. There are vaults full of music.” Koppleman also dished on plans for a possible Broadway musicial featuring Prince’s music. Koppleman continued, “Prince was an icon on the level of the Beattles and Michael Jackson, and his legacy should be honored. Though his name was Prince, I always thought he was the king of music.” Whether you agree or disagree with the plan to  release never before heard music from Prince’s vault, it’s on the way. Fans who haven’t done so should be certain to get their copy of singer/songwriter/producer Daron Jones’ new single “The Way We Used To Be”. This is the first new music from one  half of the R&B group 112  in some time, and he doesn’t disappoint. The track features a smooth laid back groove with Jones’ smooth delivery adding a wonderful touch. “The Way We Used To Be” is available on iTunes and Google Play. Rapper Childish Gambino is back. As promotions for his forthcoming “FX Show Atlanta” make their rounds, the MC/actor/comic also announced a trio of West Coast  shows in September, dubbed “Pharos”, where he’s promised to give fans the “full album experience” via a link to the  “Pharos Earth” app on his Twitter page. Gambino will be teasing new music during his upcoming stint in Joshua Tree, CA, on Sept. 2, 3 and 4. There are options for on-site camping with tickets running $99 a piece. The upcoming album serves as the follow up to 2013’s Grammy nominated “Because The Internet”, which contained the single “V. 3005” and “I Crawl”. Pre-sale for the shows go on sale on June 24 at 9 a.m. P.T.
