Okay, it was suspiciously close to April Fool's Day when we first mentioned that Michael Jackson had his eye on 50 Cent as a possible partner in crime (not literal crimes; one expects that their "alleged" rap sheets wouldn't mesh very well). But the musical matchmaking effort of G-Unit's DJ Whoo Kid is no joke.
Whoo Kid says he's traveling to Bahrain in a couple of weeks to pick up a few things Jackson has been excitedly laying down in the privacy of his own home. The first single -- yes, MJ's laying down music; what did you think we were talking about? -- is called "Now That I Found Love" and is set for release on November 21st. It's possible, then, that your holiday shopping at year's end could involve buying new music from Michael Jackson and Guns N' Roses.
The bigger question is whether any album from the deposed King of Pop will feature the signature drawl of another famous Jackson -- Curtis (a.k.a. 50). For now, mum's the word for the rapper's camp, who have said that there is no "commitment" at this time. DJ Whoo Kid has previously said that he wants to combine the two musical forces on a mixtape, and he sounds confident that can make it happen.
