3T take up Michael Jackson legacy

MILAN – Michael Jackson’s nephews and heirs to his musical talent are ending a 15-year hiatus prolonged by his dispute with Sony and untimely death.

Taj, TJ and Taryll Jackson, who form the group 3T, are preparing for a European tour this fall and are working on a new album.

Taj Jackson told The Associated Press that their career stalled when they lost rights to an album during Jackson’s dispute with Sony in the early 2000s. They were planning a comeback and were in the studio recording on the day Jackson died in 2009.

The brothers, sons of Michael’s brother Tito, decided that focusing on Jackson’s three children was the priority – but now the kids are pushing them to resume their careers.

The brothers attended a fashion event Monday in Milan.
