Michael Jackson turned down a request to appear on 2Pac's 'The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory' out of loyalty to Biggie, claims producer QDIII.
November 5, 2018 So I set up a meeting at Neverland , said QD3, who worked with director Allen Hughes on the upcoming FX docuseries Dear Mama which examines Pacs relationship with his Black Panther mother Afeni. I go up there and told Michael about it. And do you know what Micheal said? He liked Biggie. Thug Nature, which samples Jacksons 1983 Thriller hit Human Nature, didnt end up making the album. It eventually wound up on the 2000 Death Row compilation Too Gangsta For Radio, as well as various posthumous 2Pac projects. QD3, who also produced All Eyez On Mes Heaven Aint Hard 2 Find, delved deeper into his experience working with Tupac Shakur during his chat with BET. Pac would take all my beats including the ones I would never play for people, he said. I learned a lesson that you gotta be spontaneous more and he taught me how to just think and just do it. Pac would get irritated when you sat there and fiddled with sounds almost like you were disrespecting his time a little bit. He added, I would say he was manic. There would be moments that called for quiet voice and candles and all that and he would be screaming and smoking Newports. He was on fire with this manic push. He was always pushing. You could tell he wasnt comfortable in some way and there was something that was making him uncomfortable.
