Michael Jackson is the "King of Pop," and the late megastar dabbled in a wide variety of popular music genres; disco, quiet storm, dance pop, New Jack Swing, hard rock--but a YouTube video imagines what MJ would've sounded like had he tried his hand at trap music.
Posted by OGCano, "If Michael Jackson Made Trap Music" features The Gloved One adding some "shamones" and "hee-hees" to an ominous trap beat; as he fires missives at his haters.
"They call me Peter Pan. No, I can't be yo man. Cuz I'm the King, my man. So watch me as I do my dance," raps Michael Trapson as he gets turnt up with his Day 1s and dances outside in the yard.
Michael Jackson flirted with hip-hop throughout the 90s, recording with rappers like Heavy D, Naughty By Nature and the Notorious B.I.G. And he recruited hip-hop-rooted producers like Dallas Austin, Rodney Jerkins and Teddy Riley.
Jackson's estate has been in the news recently. It was reported in March that, after a 21-year partnership with Michael Jackson, Sony Corporation America (SCA) is looking to purchase the late entertainer’s stake in its Sony/ATV Music Publishing company for $750 million. The megastar’s estate will make a $702.5 millon profit over the initial $47.5 million invest Michael made when initially purchasing the company back in 1985.
