Michael Jackson was quite a collector while he was alive. A very interesting set of sculptures formerly owned by Jackson just went up for sale, but they must be sold together.
Eminem threw some lines about Michael Jackson in a couple of his songs. That didn’t make the King of Pop very happy. He was obviously upset, but he had his own way of getting revenge. MJ just bought everything Em did.
Benzino recently revealed that Michael Jackson bought Eminem’s entire music catalog. Then Jackson called Benzino up to talk about how disrespectful Eminem is and how the music industry is being run by “the devils.” At the time, Benzino had no idea about MJ’s recent purchase.
So I was at the Turnberry Hotel in Miami when I got a call from Michael, and we talked for about 45 minutes about Eminem disrespecting him. He thanked me for standing up to him and spoke about in his words, the devils running music industry. He mentioned Tommy Mattola and a few others. I’ll never forget that conversation. I had no idea he bought the catalogue.
Benzino posted a meme that explained the entire story, as crazy as it is to tell. “When Eminem did a diss on Michael Jackson in 2005. Michael made no comments. He went and bought Eminem’s whole catalogue and then got paid every time Eminem performed.”
Journalist Kim Osorio somewhat confirmed that this conversation took place. She claimed that Benzino put the phone up to her ear so she could hear Michael Jackson’s voice.
I remember when u put the phone to my ear and it was Michael on ur phone saying “the nerve of this boy”
Michael Jackson is no longer with us, but Eminem’s catalog of music is likely wrapped up in his estate. It just goes to show that you should always be careful who you throw shade at, especially if that person wrote Thriller.
