6:01 am
keeping that cred intact all the way. did you feel like you had to leave a piece behind when you left for hollywood? >> not really. as you mature, there's a natural polish that should happen with an artist that's here to stay. then new people, new businesses, new rents. what happens to the old ones? our resident hipster, jacob soboro soboroff, looks into it. >> so the people coming in, what does that do to everybody that was here? >> there's a lively neighborhood that existed here for generations, they're getting pushed out. plus hoda kotb introduces us to a high school student who left her home for america. the latest on the investigation into prince's death. he has been cremated.
6:02 am
with the results from friday's autopsy still pending, his public publicist said there was a small memorial with friends and family. . >> he was a spiritual man. as a musician, he pushed us. he made us better. and so we miss him deeply. >> prince's publicist says an announcement about a musical celebration of his life will come soon. blake mccoy is outside prince's paisley park recording studio near minneapolis. blake, good morning. people are mourning, approaching the home. i know some of the family came out yesterday. has the crowd gathered since he died a couple of days ago? >> reporter: remarkably, we're 72 hours now after prince's death was announced to the public and the crowds only seem to be getting bigger. yesterday we saw thousands of
6:03 am
people at a time coming out here to this memorial, dropping off flowers. you can already see at this early hour people coming out this morning. they've been dropping off signs, signing things on the wall. you see a lot of purple balloons, even some paintings. it's been remarkable, the outpouring of support we've seen in minneapolis. >> blake, had an about the investigation into his death? is there any speculation, people looking at what happened that night to prince? >> reporter: we've seen a lot of reports online that it may have been a drug overdose, prescription painkillers. authorities are not addressing those rumors. they're saying we need to wait for the toxicology results to come back. that's going to take several weeks. the autopsy itself has been completed, the body turned over to family and cremated. the autopsy took about four hours. sometimes with autopsies we get a preliminary autopsy, 24 hours after. that's not happening in this case. instead, the medical examiner says, you know what, we'll wait

6:05 am
delegates before the convention, saying the candidate can shift between being rabble rousing and presidential. >> being presidential is easy. i have to rant and rave or you'll fall asleep on me. >> trump keeps saying things like, i didn't really mean it, it was all part of my reality tv show, running for president will be on your screen. well, you know, what? if we buy that, shame on us. >> hallie jackson is on the rocky steps in philadelphia ahead of the pennsylvania primary on tuesday. great spot there for you, hallie. you have two candidates, hillary clinton and donald trump, who expect and could perhaps sweep all five states on tuesday. if that happens, what does this race look like on wednesday morning? >> reporter: on wednesday morning, it means for the republicans, they're turning to indiana, which is shaping up, willie, to be a big background
6:06 am
state. donald trump got on the phone with nbc news, he wanted to make sure we saw how enthusiastic his crowd was. he's feeling good about indiana even though ted cruz will come after him and the "never trump" movement plans to spend a lot of money to slow him until the west. if hillary clinton sweeps, she could end up with something like 90% of the delegates she needs to clinch the nomination. bernie sanders is hoping for a "rocky" monthment, but had he i leading right now. >> hallie jackson, on those "rocky" steps, thanks so much. police in ohio are still searching for the killer or killers of a family. at least 30 people have been questioned. so far no arrests. coast guard officials say a boat belonging to two missing

"game of thrones." what a collection of talent, writer at large for "new york magazine," in the past week alone he's written about prince, kobe, and hillary, that's steph,y range. amy holmes is the biggest thing to come out of the seattle since sir mix a lot, that's my editorializing. and jacob soboroff is covering the presidential campaign for msnbc where he mainly ambushes unsuspecting americans as they wait to vote. he has terrific hair. >> it will all fal out. >> we've got a lot to talk about. can we talk about lemonade, the beyonce event? >> my voice is hoarse from reading tweets. >> exactly. >> she broke twitter, is that what we hear? >> she released her album
6:09 am
untitled last night accompanied by an hbo video that tells the story of her relationship with jay z, it was a big fancy deal. >> it's been out for three weeks, how much stuff is on twitter and social media. >> it's all over. let's talk about prince. you wrote about him for "new york magazine." you wrote, prince stripped us down to our core. he was unmatched when it came to expressing vulnerability. and it wasn't always comfortable. prince's way of always being prince was often met with confusion. looking back, it was always necessary. how do you put into words beyond the great ones you've written there, the reaction to prince's death, the inspiration he gave to the range of artists from, you know, springsteen to timberlake to lil' wayne? it was like he was this god among musicians. >> i think he -- while he might not have been, in terms of his sheer number of fans, might not have been as big as michael
6:10 am
jackson or something like that, he seemed to be a lot of people's number one guy. he was the person that kind of gave people -- made people feel comfortable to take it further than they ever would have, other individuals, other artists. everybody was like, if prince cannot only do that and get away with it and be cooler than anyone else, maybe i can do that too. i saw a lot of that in the reaction. >> i heard somebody say, imagine if michael jackson played the guitar like jimmy hendricks, then you would have prince. he was important culturally because he blurred the lines with sexuality and music and gender. >> and race. >> and race. but at the core, he was a phenomenal musician, played all the instruments on his albums and arranged and produced them. >> he didn't just capture the
6:11 am
zeitzeist. he inspired other musicians. yes, culture and art should mix, that there should be borrowing, evenco opting. somebody like prince being sung by bruce springsteen. >> to me, willie, i've never been accused of being particularly musically inclined, but when you look at at a guy like prince, this is one of these individuals that everybody knows. you know him for whatever reason, it might be the music, as jimmy fallon last night on "saturday night live," the man had his own color, how many people had their own color? on "morning joe," they tease me because i'm wearing these fingerless gloves, but those are prince. he owns everything. he owns so much about what we know and love about our culture. >> prince was the one thing that could blot out the sun that is donald trump in presidential politics this week. donald trump's campaign, amy, is
6:12 am
making the case now that he's a lot like ronald reagan in 1980, which is to say, mocked and underestimated, but he's going to win the general election and become a great president. do you buy that argument? >> he was supposed to be presidential. blink and you missed it. he's already saying, i don't have to do that, i need to rant and rave to keep all you people awake. comparisons to ronald reagan are silly. reagan had a deeply developed political outlook, including fighting the soviet/communist threat to the world. donald trump is twitter and doesn't get much deeper than that. >> he called ted cruz "senator cruz" during his victory speech, and a lot of people thought he was being more presidential, and an hour later he was "lying ted ted."
6:13 am
>> it's amazing to kind of watch -- make people believe, okay, maybe it's all over, and then four minutes later, he goes back and proves to you that he's still playing this crazy game and somehow winning. >> it did start to feel, jacob, this week, not acceptance but not resignation inside the republican party that he could get to the delegates, that he could get to 1237, especially if he rolls through these states on tuesday. >> he's going after unbound delegates in places like pennsylvania that could get him over the limit. if there is any comparison to reagan, it's that they could both end up coming out of a contested convention, in 1976 reagan went up against gerald ford and lost. donald trump hopes he doesn't have the same fate. >> news out of the treasury department, harriet tubman is going on the $20 bill, they'll try to accelerate it and get her on in 2020, just four years from
6:14 am
now. to me, this was a great choice but also a great time for americans to go back and read about harriet tubman and the life she loves. we know the broad strokes of the underground railroad. she was a spy in the union army. the risks she took to get people to freedom were incredible. >> i was giddy when i heard the news. it's still just $20, i don't get $25. but i thought not only is this like a great moment to move past like the four bullet points that you get with a lot of historical figures, black history month figures, but the identia of see a black woman on monday is incredible, even before a black man. in terms of a symbol, i know there's lots of conversations about capitalism, blah blah blah. but take a step back from that, there's a world in which this is cool and this is a good thing.
6:15 am
>> i loved it, i thought it was extraordinary. harriet tubman was a great hero of man. we of course read about her in elementary school and now we get to read even more. i think to have a conversation that our national symbols, it is a discussion, and that we are a democracy, and we can change them. now, donald trump of course had to weigh in and said that she should be put on the $2 bill which would replace thomas jefferson, i'm not sure about that. >> trump said he wanted a new denomination of money, he said we should have a $2 bill, which we do. >> the bottom line for him is he wants to see his face on every denomination. >> that's coming. did you see the picture of prince george in the hugh hefner robe? >> everybody wants a robe with their name on it. >> you want to eat him up. >> the president of the united states and the first lady come to tuck you into bed, that's pretty cool too. then to roll up in a robe like that. something about that kid. >> willie, puppies and babies,
