    Today, August 29th, marks the Born Day of the one and only late, great King of Pop, Michael Joseph Jackson. Though frequently sampled for rap songs MJ himself has only collaborated with rappers a handful of times in his illustrious career (and we don’t mean those “remixes” everybody and their cousin throws up on youtube). Originally published in ego trip’s Book of Rap Lists, here we re-present (with a few unreleased curiosities) an official run down of those emcees truly down with the King. MJ RIP.
