    Question Did Michael rap in any other songs?

    Did Michael rap in any songs other then shout?
    I really like shout (it's cool to hear Michael rap), so if there are any other songs where he raps I would like to know about them.

    Default The Day Basketball Was Saved

    I guess you can call this a proto-rap:

    I've listened to that song before but it just wasn't at the forefront of my mind when I made this thread, LOL.
    Still though thanks because I did ask for other songs where he raps.

    Thanks for all the responses y'all.
    I guess I was hoping that someone would come through with some really deep cut I haven't heard yet.
    That didn't happen though, but I'm gonna still go listen to the songs that have been suggested.

    Jam to a certain extent. Michael's way of signing was kinda similar to rapping even if he wasn't a rapper.

    The lyrics of TDCAU come to mind...

    Skin head, dead head, everybody gone bad
    Situation, aggravation, everybody allegation
    In the suite, on the news, everybody dog food
    Bang bang, shot dead, everybody's gone mad
    ...
    Beat me, hate me, you can never break me
    Will me, thrill me, you can never kill me
    Jew me, sue me, everybody do me
    Kick me, **** me, don't you black or white me
    ...
    Skin head, dead head, everybody gone bad
    Trepidation, speculation, everybody allegation
    In the suite, on the news, everybody dog food
    Black male, black mail, throw your brother in jail


    I remember at one point the genre for it on Wikipedia was 'Rock Rap' and I was like ... that's a pretty good point haha.

    I don't know if this is true or not but some have said that there is a demo or early version of She Drives Me Wild where MJ raps. I would love to hear that version if it exists

    That bridge part where MJ raps (from ‘Can’t Let Her Get Away’) is also one of his very few examples that MJ also swears in his songs (towards the bridge’s end).

    MJ had great difficulty in recording those lines (due to their very unorthodox, vocal style that demanded).

    It took him endless vocal takes to achieve the final, desired result, & as a result, that made this song one of the most difficult ones (if not the most difficult one) from a vocal point of view!

    Seems so! I always thought Scream was the first time we heard MJ swear but reading the lyrics for CLHGA the other night I learnt he says the f word!

    [Bridge]
    I got the feeling, trouble's gotta stop
    I got the feeling, she's never gonna try
    I got the feeling, she's never gonna stop
    I got the feeling but she's never gonna know
    My friends thought she's gonna like it
    I got the feeling but she's never gonna take it
    I got the feeling, her head's all f*cked up
    I got the feeling, she's out to play
    Can't let go
    Can't let go


    It's hard to make out what Michael's saying... but it plays along.
