Let it be known that Gucci Mane is apparently a huge Michael Jackson fan.
The Atlanta rapper has MJ references FOR DAYS on his new single, aptly titled “Moon Walk.” Produced by Mike Will Made-It, the slow burner finds Chris Brown and Akon switching off hook duties, bragging away about their sexual skills. Gucci, meanwhile, handles the verses, declaring, "Gucci Mane's a smooth criminal / Billie Jean is not my lover.” That kicks off a string of MJ references throughout the song, like “King of Pop, come rock with me / Show you who bad, I beat it, beat it” and “Diamonds dancing on my pinky, like it's Michael Jackson's glove.”
Oh, and the song comes with MJ-featuring artwork, to really drive the whole thing home.
Gucci’s been on a steady roll the past few months, beginning with his first post-prison album Everybody Looking in July, followed by his Woptober mixtape, which dropped two weeks ago. He’s also announced another new album, The Return of East Atlanta, which is expected to arrive in December.
