XXcLusive: DJ Whoo Kid Remembers Meeting Michael Jackson [Audio]

Some things in life are truly unforgettable. The first day of school. Childbirth. Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” video. For DJ Whoo Kid, a chance meeting with late legend Michael Jackson is forever etched in his memory. In honor of the King of Pop—who tragically died of cardiac arrest yesterday (June 25)—we asked Whoo Kid to share his 2006 encounter with MJ in Bahrain. The G-Unit spinner’s recollections were so vivid that we decided we’d let you hear them straight from the source. Here, the DJ remembers meeting Michael, the legend’s phone conversation with 50 Cent and Mike’s feelings on Eminem’s retirement. This is one testimony you’ll never forget. –John Kennedy

    • DetroitDraper

      Lmao and he probly turned it way way up Paris Pershun style

      • EReal

        If MJ was anyone else he’d be buried under a jail.

        I respect dude’s contributions and his art, but he’s a fucking pariah.

  • d

    DJ Whoo sounds like an un-educated fool telling this story, a little class please.

    • PHARO

      SHUT THE FUCK UP!

      THAT UNEDUCATED FOOL IS WORTH MILLIONS.

      HOW MUCH ARE YOU WORTH D?

  • Mutada al sader the king

    ^Yea really for all the talk of him being this great behind the scenes “business man”, he fucking sounds like an idiot.

    Even 50 TRIES to speak with intelligence, you know how a 50 Cent interview sounds now a days->

    The ACTUAL, market is what ACTUALLY, pushes the ACTUAL, product to the ACTUAL, consumer, for the ACTUAL radio format, to be ACTUALLY, successful, to support the ACTUAL, music of the ACTUAL artist.

    Good story, though nice way of tying THE BEST ENTERTAINER OF ALL TIME to hip hop.

    Lets not forget he did a song with Biggie, on HISstory also

    • PHARO

      What the hell is wrong with you people, pay attention to what the mans saying stop being a bitch.

      If you have a problem interpretating what he is saying that’s your lack of inteligence.

      I never heard him say anything stupid there, he’s just being himself which a lot of people are scared to be these days.

      • matty21

    Apparently, the last 2 commenters had their dose of haterade this morning. I know Whoo Kid personally and he is the sweetest and funniest dude. Which is something a lot of industry people are not.

    Just remember… actions speak louder than words and Whoo Kid’s actions and accomplishments speak volumes.

    So he’s not very articulate… who gives a f*… get off his d* and stop hatin’

  • Buck

    LMFAO Mutada that is some funny shit about 50 cent. You nailed the way that nigga talk perfectly.

  • nessness138

    i will always love that photo

    @ D
    what the fuck do you mean he sounds uneducated? where the fuck do you live? He’s a street dude who made it, he’s telling a story from his past, how would you like him to talk? have you ever met anybody who lives outside of your gated community? Not everybody goes to college you fucking douchebag.

    • Truth

      D is not a douchebag as you so “nicely” put it Sincere. Just b/c someone has a thought doesn’t mean they don’t know what’s good around the hood so to speak. You don’t have to go to college to speak like you have some sense. People need to stop adapting to their environment, but rather set trends for people in the community to follow. It’s NOT ok to walk around sounding like some ignorant nigga. It has nothing to do w/ hatin on a brotha, b/c trust and believe money ISN’T everything!!!

  • brandon

    how about every rapper’s “fuck you if you hate soulja boy because hes dope” to the fans of hip hop who hate souljaboy by jumping on the turn my swag on train

  • brandon

    or how about trey songz jumping on every other rappers song and dissing them in it as an even bigger “fuck you if my first single was for the bitches but watch me now get respect in this game by putting me being better than you on your own shit out for free” to all of the people who didnt respect him enough to buy his album

  • brandon

    but then how about the hip-hop/rap movement being another target in society as a tremendous “fuck you to all news casters broadcasting about the negatives in mj’s life and not the fact that he was the greatest entertainer ever” when the better on the other side tribute comes out and there is an awkward variey of people on it doing the complete opposite
