    ^ exactly.. Like I said earlier being a clean person is what BAD really is! not a thug.. the video makes it clear that Michael is not comfortable around his old friends and environment. the whole message Is you can be a good citizen and be a bad @ss because of it.. that's what 'cool' really is..


    Duran also you just said you can battle in a song from only one perspective and giving the example of how rappers rap separate songs about each other.. I'm not sure if you're just trying to find holes in what I'm saying but that is completely irrelevant to what I'm saying.. BAD is a song (singular) the lyrics as they stand would not make sense in a battle form unless BAD was MJs song and Prince had his own response song.. that is very different than what it was. they were going to do THE song together. so the lyrics most likely were not the same! maybe some verses and parts but it could not be a battle and it's one point of view in the same song.

    you know that.. lol

    Childhood is that far down in your list?? You put money above Childhood?? I'm about to have an aneurysm lol.

    I was just thinking the other day about how childhood is truly a masterpiece and should be ranked among his finest work.

    IMO, all mainstream music isn't bad/unlistenable, but often times overrated.
    For example, an artist could release a good song that is without a doubt a good/great song, but reviews will act like it's the best song ever made or something when in reality it really is only a good/great song and nothing more or nothing less.

    I do prefer MJ's music over the music of any other artist though.
    And although this time around isn't as fresh as some if the rest of MJ's music, I definitely don't think it's dated at all.

    Yeah, I don't feel good about myself. Same with putting Scream at seventh place.

    But truth be told, although it's grown on me over the years, his voice is exquisite and the lyrics heartbreakingly honest, I never fell for it and never play it unless I'm listening to the full album.

    For me HIStory is an album of two halves, 7 or 8 stunning songs showing Mike at the peak of his songwriting and genius and seven ones that are just good.

    I'd take an MJ song over any other song any day so to compare MJ old vs. whatever new is not even a thing to me lol!..


    I can only put MJ against MJ when it comes to what I like more.. I'd rather listen to the worse MJ track over anything out there!

    I am against the usage of the N-word, of course, but here I always felt that MJ let it stay there to prove a point. He could have easily have censored or removed that line.

    Yeah that would be nice... I agree. Even though this song didn't get much love, it doesn't take away from the song itself. It's a great song. I've always imagined it's about "Dom Sheldon", or some other man that has wronged him, perhaps a Tommy Motolla? idk

    i like this song the only problem i don't like about this song is biggie drops the N-word. there's is an censored version of this song. the things i like about this song is that this was few songs biggie did before he die and two even though i don't like how he drop the N-word i think michael kept it to say something about him. (i'm from an african descent so i probably get why he probably left it in there etc.)

    i don't think get a lot of love because of the swearing. it's only two swear words and michael was basically mad as heck in this album and era so it make sense.

    r.i.p to both.

    Why do you say this since this song came out after popular albums like The Chronic by Dr. Dre? Biggie's music is full of cussin' too. A lot of the hits today have profanity although the radio play the clean versions. But the dirty versions can be heard on Youtube and some get hundreds of millions of views.
