Went with Biggie's spot on "This Time Around", and I see I'm not alone.
I don't know if everyone feels that way, but to me it was more of an statement from Biggies side. You instantly recognize the use of the n-word and the meaning behind it - it wasn't drowned down and meaninglessly overused like in almost every rap song.
It was more a statement about he's still cool with Michael and the skin color has nothing to do with who Michael is underneath.
I didn't care much for the Butterflies remix, and the YRMW mix was an acquired taste.
thanks to Chris Cadman (For The Record author and owner of MJ Archives), here's some retrospective material on what could have been a smashing collabo between two legends of two different worlds:
MJ's handwritten lyrics to Crack Kills:
And yet they had no problem recording a wrestling theme song for a former "blueblood", a former country-western singer and man who called himself "Mr. Ass".
To be fair, the song was pretty good though (DX's "The Kings")
Would loved to have heard that collab though.
I believe there is a Greatest Hits CD that has Crack Kills Demo on it without Michael. I cant find it atm.
My favorites were Heavy D and Notorious B.I.G
Butterflies, w/Eve for me.
The rest of them would have been better w/o the rap.
Michael I love you endlessly. I miss you every second of the day. There is a great void in my heart and it will never be filled. Your children and family will always be in my prayers. I will love & miss you forever.
You were ripped away from us. I will not rest until the people responsible take responsibility for their actions.
I want the truth!
Tell me, "How can I get to you, by doing what I do?" -mj
