Rock The Mic Right

Will the Gloved One and Curtis ever make hot fire together? It’s on. It’s off. It might happen. There’s no way it’s happening. I for one am sick of all that talk. You won’t find a bigger Mr. Jackson fan on the planet (don’t get twisted I like pedis not pedophiles, but you can’t fuck with his catalogue) but the secret’s been out: my boy’s already made several records with a touch of hip-hop and that’s never worked, jerk-offs. It’s been written: The thriller and rap just don’t mix. Here’s the history so you know I just ain’t whistlin’ dixie, you little pixies.

Michael Jackson feat. Heavy D “Jam” (Epic, 1991)

Swagger jackin’ his baby sis, the Smooth Criminal strikes out with Da Heavster.

Michael Jackson feat. Wreckx-N-Effect’s A+ “She Drives Me Wild” (Epic, 1991)

This featured “Rump Shaker” author didn’t even get a writing credit for this clunker.

Michael Jackson feat. Treach “Scream (Naughty By Nature Remix)” (Epic, 1995)

Thankfully no one remembers this mash-up between MJ and the NJ tongue twista.

Michael Jackson feat. Notorious B.I.G. “This Time Around” (Epic, 1995)

The King of Pop and the King of NY together! Don’t believe the hype.

Michael Jackson feat. Shaquille O’Neal “2 Bad” (Epic, 1995)

This misses the mark like big man at the foul-line.

Michael Jackson feat. John Forte “2 Bad (Refugee Camp Mix)” (Epic, 1995)

This Fugees flunkie should be arrested for his involvement in this mess.

Michael Jackson feat. Notorious B.I.G. “Unbreakable” (Epic, 2001)

MJ takes a Biggie verse from Shaq’s album (I sense a connection here) for this posthumous pairing. Shameful.

Michael Jackson feat. Fats “Heartbreaker”(Epic, 2001)

Rodney Jerkins force-feeds his artist on this hot garbage.

Michael Jackson feat. Fats “Invincible” (Epic, 2001)

Politic, ditto.

Michael Jackson feat. Jay-Z “You Rock My World (Remix)” (Epic, 2001)

The King of Pop and the King of Rap together! Still don’t believe the hype.

P.S. This doesn’t even include unreleased collabos dude did with Run-DMC and LL Cool J.

P.S.S. Next time, extra anchovies!

    Shit with jay was hot

  • Mikey Ess AKA SukedowN

    I almost thought those two read:

    Michael Jackson feat. Fats Domino…

    WOW!!! What could’ve been…

  • Therapist

    I just noticed how long MJ’s intro’s are… jesus they let the beat ride in for like 40 seconds until he even makes a sound…

  • Therapist

    some really bad music up there tho, minus the Jigga…

    and I can’t front, JAM was my shit (I was 6)

  • motorcitykidd…

    Michael Jackson “The Soulful Years: Volume 1″

    Sounds like a shameless plug (it is) but hey, it had to happen…
    If you REALLY appreciate Mike, this is the mixtape for you and it should be right up your alley since you’re into breaks and the true flavor shit.

    By the way my name is Jaycee, one eighth of the crew known as The Aphilliates. We’re definitely holding things down here in the A and wreaking a lil’ havoc in the industry right about now. I also DJ for Ludacris and sometimes other cats in DTP, the folks that you’ve had a good time bashing for the last few years in your blogs and elsewhere, lol. We won’t get into any of that though because this is about MJ. Hit me back with your info and i’ll make sure you have a copy on your desk ASAP. Holla!!!

  • Vik

    curtis+mike = never

    however, if whoo kid can get michael to get fid of the halloween costumes and ice out, who knows?

  • bob

    yn is such a bastard. 50 keep you in his pocket nigga.

  • medi

    mike’s the king, 50′s his fan, why not

    i really hope this happens, but it’s not a big deal if it doesn’t, ’cause MJ can make a comeback with or without 50

  • medi

    can u imagine MJ on jay-z’s girls, girls girls?
    ’cause there were reports in 2001 that they did it together, but mike’s label didn’t want to release it…

  • thebestout!!


  • StraightG

    I want that Mike and 50 collab to happen. That shit would be hot. That Jay shit was hot too on that rmx. I’ll neva forget when dude brought Mike out durin Summer Jam. That shit was crazy. I got mad respect for my nigga Mike.

  • angie

    Michael will work with 50 with Curtis gets a jheri curl with baby hair on the side. Please, I can’t stand 50 cent and the rumor about him working the King even more. Its such an old rumor too.

    And don’t front, ya’ll know Jam was the ish. Remember Kriss Kross in the video? haha

  • Sam…
