The Game, Diddy, Chris Brown and more have joined forces to pay tribute to iconic singer Michael Jackson with the tribute-based song "Better On The Other Side."
Paying homage to the memory of Jackson, the trio are also joined by the likes of Mario Winans and Boyz II Men.
"You're Michael Jackson, I'm Michael Jackson," Game raps. "We all Michael Jackson, I guess what I'm asking, is everybody bow their head for a legend/Don't breathe for a second, now let air out, grab the hand of somebody you care about/So you can hear my message, hear my confession/Everybody tell Usher, I seen a moonwalk/Guess the young Thriller touched him/He touched me, like he touched you." ("Better On The Other Side")
Diddy is also heard on the track bigging up Jackson.
"People can say what they want about you," Puff says. "We gonna remember the miracles you showed us, through your music, through your hands...You're the one that made us all realize, we are the world. You were the one who showed us the moonwalk. You gave us the beat, you gave us the rhythm. You gave us the soul. Through us, your legacy lives on." ("Better On The Other Side")
50 Cent released his version of a tribute on "Where You Are" which featured the G-Unit leader trading bars with a young Jackson.
"They say I ain't lyrical, they say I ain't a miracle," 50 raps. "I say some hard sh*t, then they say I ain't spiritual/They act like they know God better than me, I know God a lod, I used to pump crack up the street...N*gga you ain't ever gonna see me in the hood, f*ck that sh*t, n*gga I'm too good/Run and go tell 50's boogee, don't buy his CDs, don't go see his movies/Don't act like you used to in juvie, on that medication, that n*gga be looney...Can it be I've been away too long/I've been away man, did you forget me? I'm back baby, I'm back...Oh, I'm in Southside, this is that sh*t right here." ("Where You Are (MJ Tribute)")
Diddy also wrote via Twitter to express the impact Jackson has on his life.
"Michael Jackson showed me that you can actually see the beat," Diddy wrote. "He made the music come to life!! He made me believe in magic. I will miss him!" (Diddy's Twitter)
