“You Really Got A Hold Of Me” right dad?

I won’t even start to talk about my feeling about the King of Pop. I am very interested in the case as is everyone else in the world. MJ has issues, no doubt, but I am not gonna throw him under the bus. I’ll just sit here and watch the drama unfold and listen to everyone else yell their opinions at each other.

What I will do is post this track I have laying around. My WinAmp was shuffling through the thousands of songs I have, and came across this oldie but goodie. In the spirit of MJ watching, I thought I really should post this one.

~MJ speaks on the team-up with Bigge and hip-hop love.
Unbreakable VIBE Magazine Interview – March 2002

VIBE: Are you feeling hip hop?

MJ: I like a lot of it, a lot of it. I like the music. I don’t like the dancing that much. It looks like they’re doing aerobics.

VIBE: How did you decide to feature Biggie Smalls on “Unbreakable”, off Invincible?

MJ: It wasn’t my idea, actually. It was Rodney Jerkins’s, one of the writer/producers working on the album. It was my idea to put a rap part on the song, and he said, “I know just the perfect on – Biggie.” He put it in, and it worked perfectly.

VIBE: Why did you choose Jay-Z for the remix of the first single, “You Rock My World”?

MJ: He’s hip, the new thing, and he’s with the kids today. They like his work. He’s tapped into the nerve of popular culture. It just made good sense.

VIBE: What was it like for you to appear at New York’s Hot 97 Summer Jam concert as Jay-Z’s guest?

MJ: I just showed up and gave him a hug. There was a tumultuous explosion of applause and stomping, a lovely, lovely welcome, and I was happy about that. It was a great feeling – the love, the love.

~PS.
The song title is ripe for comments and jokes by the way. Feel free to post your comments or just vent. I think I’ll pop my copy of “The Wiz” in the VCR and reminisce of the gloved one’s better days.
