The G-Unit artist went to his Instagram to post a clip from Tucker’s 2015 Netflix special “Chris Tucker Live,” where the comedian joked about a time when he and the King of Pop were in a car together and the track from “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” came on.

The “Rush Hour” actor said everything was “cool” until Jackson started rapping along with the lyrics. 

“Michael, Michael, no! Michael, no! Don’t sing the words. Please,” said Tucker who claims that Jackson responded, “I love that song. I love that beat. I love it. That is a cold-blooded beat. Of course I wouldn’t go in the club with a bottle full of ‘bub. I wouldn’t do that! But I love that song!”

Just recently, another artist compared the South Jamaica, Queens native to Michael Jackson. During his stop in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center on The Final Lap Tour, 50 brought out Dreamville rapper J. Cole, who made a statement about 50’s biggest album. 

“Get Rich or Die Tryin’ is the best album of all time I don’t give a fuck what you talking about.” Cole told fans at the concert, “It’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ at number one, and it’s Thriller at number two, and I love Michael Jackson.”

This isn’t the first time 50 Cent has been compared to the pop icon. As previously reported in 2019, the “Many Men” rapper made a post on social media where he stated that “CB [Chris Brown] better then MJ to me now.” and then posted a clip of Brown doing backflips on stage during the concert and commented, “All I’m saying is I never seen MJ come out like this.”  

Fifty followed that up with an edited picture of his face on the “Thriller” album cover with the caption, “CB ain’t got shit on me.I got moves fool #lecheminduroi #bransoncognac.”
