He helped to shape the sound of Motown in the s, first as an in-house session player and later as a solo artist with a string of hits, earning him the nicknames "Prince of Motown" and "Prince of Soul". During the s, Gaye recorded the albums What's Going On and Let's Get It On and became one of the first artists in Motown to break away from the reins of a production company. Gaye was born Marvin Pentz Gay Jr. His first home was in a public housing project,  the Fairfax Apartments  now demolished at 1st Street SW in the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood. Most buildings were small, in extensive disrepair, and lacked both electricity and running water.

The song is no longer the black cri de coeur it used to be, but balm for hypocrites, especially the limousine liberals of leisure media like Rolling Stone. It is necessary to call out this BLA alliance in order to clarify the usurpation of black American social and spiritual aspiration by the plainly political, even satanic aims of social domination. Only Morrissey has dared to record a song addressing citizens who take to fearful compliance. His emotional amplitude evokes a different sensibility and moral awareness than the generation raised on petulance knows. Gaye espoused a loving philosophy that has not been taught to those who believe dissent means that only they are right. A greatest album poll by the activist magazine The Atlantic would no doubt exploit Marvin Gaye and produce the same specious result: Black pop as a decoy for elitist power.
