Have I died and gone to heaven? A Fitty and Michael Jackson collaboration being released a year and some change after the King of Pop's passing?
I've come to learn Michael had a little gangsta in him.
Considering the photo below (courtesy of Bossip) and forgetting he appeared with Jay-Z at Summer Jam back in 2001. He also had Biggie drop a verse on This Time Around on his HIStory album.
I didn't know about the Biggie thing until today!
|This photo disturbs me.|
And now...a track with 50 Cent!?!
Wonder if MJ ever heard 'Patiently Waiting' when Fitty says he'll make his enemies look like a 'Michael Jackson jacket with all them zippers'?
Random I know, but isn't that basically Michael's middle-name?
Yes, I know Joseph is his middle name but still!
Off MJJ's posthumous album Michael, the track Monster produced by Blackstreet's Teddy Riley (yeah, he's still around) features 50 Cent!
At first I felt this track may have been disappointing because it features two of my favorite artists, but I really like it. I'm sure others may disagree because everyone seems to hold Michael to a high standard by constantly comparing him to his Thriller and Billie Jean days. The song is tight and I can most definitely imagine hearing it at the club. However it's nowhere near classic-status-Michael Jackson.
But I think we ALL figured that.
The song also features the typical-MJJ natural sound of breaking glass that has been apparent in his later songs stemming from the Dangerous album. That's so played-out.
Unfortunately I couldn't find the song in its entirety online. So here's a snippet.
When I find the full song I'll post it ASAP.
Sidenote: What's with all of these artists jumping on the monster-bandwagon? First Gaga (who I feel originated it), Ne-Yo, then Kanye and now Michael.
