50 Cent is one of the three featured guests in Michael Jackson's upcoming posthumous album which is due in the U.S. on December 14. The rapper joins forces with Michael in a track called "Monster", and he calls the collaboration as the 2010 version of MJ's iconic "Thriller".
Fiddy recalled how the duet happened. "I didn't have the opportunity to physically be in Michael Jackson's presence," he said. "But my DJ, Whoo Kid, he had the opportunity to actually meet Mike, because he was interested in working with me and he said that he had something he wanted me to actually hear, a song he created."
After Michael died last year, Fiddy was invited to record his portion in the track. "When I sat down and listened to the actual song, I was excited. I said, 'This is the 2010 version of Thriller'," he stated. Missing the chance to really be in the same room with Michael, he wanted to make "something more."
"I made adjustments to my cadence so I don't sound like I sound on music that people have previously heard from me, because I'm adjusting to the production," he explained, promising the track will introduce a different side of him and at the same time satisfying the fans of the late King of Pop.
Despite all the controversies surrounding "Michael" CD, Fiddy is adamant that the album is "special." He added, "It'll be embraced different because it's the last of really great material that Mike created, so I think people will want it to go in their actual collection to go in their Michael Jackson material. It's a great example of how the art and the material will last longer than we will."
