According to Quincy “QD3” Jones III, Michael Jackson was supposed to be on 2Pac’s ‘The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory’ but he turned down the collaboration because of his loyalty to the Notorious B.I.G.
Vlad got more;
Recently, it was revealed that 2 Pac’s album ‘The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, ’ released two months after his death in 1996, was supposed to have a crazy feature that never went down.
BET recently published an oral history of the storied album following 2 Pac’s 51st birthday. During the oral history, Quincy “QD3” Jones III revealed some shocking information about Tupac’s album, saying the rapper’s camp reached out to Michael Jackson with intentions of getting him on the song “Thug Nature.”
QDIII went on to claim Jackson turned down the collaboration solely out of loyalty to the Notorious B.I.G., who was Tupac’s rival then. “So I set up a meeting at Neverland [Ranch]. I go up there and told Michael about it. And do you know what Micheal said? He liked Biggie.” The track “Thug Nature” didn’t make the album and samples Jackson’s “Human Nature.”
Mike was a very loyal guy.
Michael Jackson was more of a Hip-Hop head than he publicly admitted. He chilled with Biggie, T-Pain, and Warren G, and the 2001 Summer Jam almost exploded when he joined Jay Z onstage.
Lost among duets with Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger were hardbody cuts by Mike featuring some MCs who were legendary and some who were just commercially successful. Hit the jump and see if you knew about these 13 rappers who worked with Michael Jackson.
Jackson worked with Biggie and of course Jay Z.
The actually “Thug Nature” does exist and the song is fire and it would have been even more fire if Jackson would have been singing the chorus.
RIP to two legends.
