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 trap MJ as he dances around the neighborhood.
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.
