Michael Jackson Reportedly Turned Down A Tupac Feature Because He Was Friends With Notorious B.I.G

Back in the 90s, rap beefs were real! You had to make it known whose side you were on; the East-Side (Biggie and Badboy) or West-Side (Tupac and Death Row).

According to Quincy Jones III, the King of Pop was team Biggie all day! So much so, he turned down a feature with Tupac because he loved Biggie so much.

In an oral history of Tupac’s posthumous album “The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory” produced by BET, Quincy Jones III details how Michael Jackson turned down a feature on the 1996 album.

They wanted him on a song called ‘Thug Nature’, which sampled Michael’s classic hit ‘Human Nature’, but Michael refused because of his relationship with Biggie.

“So I set up a meeting at Neverland [Ranch],” said QD3. “I go up there and told Michael about it. And do you know what Micheal said? He liked Biggie.”

So, because Michael turned them down, the song ended up being scrapped from the album, but was eventually released in 2000 on the Death Row compilation album “Too Gangsta For Radio”.

Dubbed the “King of Pop”, Michael Jackson is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century. Over a four-decade career, his contributions to music, dance, and fashion, along with his publicized personal life, made him a global figure in popular culture.
