This Is What Millennial Michael Jackson Would Have Sounded Like

This Michael Jackson impersonator is giving us a glimpse of what millennial Michael could have been like. He goes by the moniker “Michael Trapson,” which if that’s not clever enough, dude also dresses, sounds and kinda looks like the king himself. He’s got the glove, the loafers and a pretty sick moonwalk.

Youtuber and trap rapper, OG Cano, who now goes by “Michael Trapson” is showing us all what MJ may have sounded like if he were a millennial.

He even recreated the classic music video for “Thriller,” in an epic 14-minute music video, complete with trap, dance and monsters.

His videos have started going viral on Facebook and Instagram and he recently dropped a new song on iTunes.

The artist, who used to go by “OG Cano” described himself on this artist website as half Dominican and half black (“best of both worlds,” he says), has gone through several evolutions. He started as OG Cano, before playing with a Michael Jackson persona and eventually impersonating Prince as well, but it seems like MJ is working out best for him.


Although his sound is mostly trap, he has sampled some Michael Jackson songs.

Most recently on the song “Out The Bong/Don’t Stop ‘Til You Smoke Enough” which Trapson released just after 4/20, he samples the classic hit “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.” Smoking is a common theme in his music, indicated by his song “High” where he has used a sample from the song “Human Nature.” The song features the lyrics “smoking loud, in the night time,” which if you sing it, it’s a perfect blend of what music has become and where it’s come from.


Another song where he imitates Michael’s sound is on his song “Peter Pan” where he uses the rock guitar sound from “Bad.”

The song may be the one that ultimately turns true fans away as he’s clowning on Michael Jackson’s history with children. In the song, Trapson sings “now I don’t sleep with little boys…”


Although he is sampling only some of Michael Jackson’s music, it’s MJ’s essence that he’s mostly imitating.

He’s totally capitalizing on the entire look, using MJ’s lingo, his style of speaking and pulling off some killer dance moves. Namely, he’s using the exclamation “shimone,” throwing lots of “hee-hees” around and moonwalking like a pro.


And, if you can do your best to not be hurt that someone is impersonating the undisputed King of Pop, it’s music you could actually party to.

The music video looks just like what you’d expect from a dope trap song. And the music itself is no different from music being released by trap and mumble rap artists like Migos and Lil Yachty, and lots of people are jamming to that.


The artist was featured in a Complex News segment called “Shit We Can’t Unsee.”

Although they had a good laugh about it, Joe Budden reluctantly co-signed him, saying “I’m just happy they know who Michael Jackson is.”


Hey, as long as he’s keeping Michael Jackson alive, and we can all have more opportunities to shout shimone! and hee-hee!, it’s all good.

The fashion industry has long been criticized for its impact on unhealthy body images among young women. Recently, the fashion industry has started to change with some fashion designers embracing and celebrating all body types. This has given rise to some plus size models that have become household names.

Mercedes, along with friend Maria Castellanos, is showing the beauty of all body sizes.

Who doesn’t like rocking a little overall every now and then? The outfit is as annoying as a romper but denim is everything so it makes it all worth it. If you have ever wanted to rock some overalls, take them for a spin in your apartment right now.

Never shy away from a little bit of midriff, especially over the summer.

The hotter it gets, the less you want to wear. No one wants to spend the summer sweating. It isn’t a good look. Let your body feel the sun this year and just rock your style, mija.

This bestie brunch chic look is stunning.

The top is all fancy business and the blue jeans make it comfortable and fun. Plus, who doesn’t like a cinched waist via an oversized belt? This is one look that anyone can rock and everyone should.

You can definitely enjoy a comfy t-shirt dress.

Again, the waist belt is all you really need to give your hourglass figure the kind of attention it deserves. Curves are beautiful and something our community knows a lot about. Let’s celebrate them.

It is summer so why not wear a fun summer piece.

Get some safe, socially distanced sun and fresh air this summer. We are all allowed to go outside to get fresh air and spend time being active in parks ad beaches. Don’t gather, obviously, but go get that summer tan you love by walking on the beach if you can.

And, of course, some ’90s-inspired looks are always nice to bring back.

A nice little dress with some black, patent leather boots is a solid look, y’all. As we see here, it is one look that we can all get comfortable wearing around.

Trapera Cazzu Pretty Much Confirms She Had A Relationship With Bad Bunny In A Super Awkward Interview

Like any creative industry, the world of trap music is teeming with collaborations both artistic and romantic. Of course, the love story shared by Anuel AA and Karol G has been making headlines since late 2018, but rumors about other possible power pairs are always circulating on the internet. Bad Bunny, one of the biggest names on the Latin trap scene sin duda, has been the center of many romance rumors over the years, with fans wondering about possible relationships with a variety of famos@s (from Spain’s neo-Flamenco cantante Rosalía to Argentian trapera Cazzu).

Although speculation about Big Bunny’s involvement with Cazzu emerged in 2018

Los veo ya mismo en el Luna Park ????????

A post shared by BAD | BUNNY (@badbunnypr) on

Following a spicy onstage kiss at Luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires, Cazzu all but confirmed their hot history in an interview at Cap Cana’s beachfront Paradise Festival in the Dominican Republic. And even if you don’t care about Cazzu and Bad Bunny’s relationship, the interview is worth watching for its abundance of deliciously awkward moments.

Cazzu’s interview was conducted by Eric Tirin of the Alofoke Radio Show.

Throughout the conversation acknowledged Cazzu’s rising fame and talent but also persistently pressed her for information about that iconic kiss with Bad Bunny.

“We pretty much met on stage, because there wasn’t time to meet before the show, [but] it was all really natural … and I don’t really know what happened, it was all very weird, but we practically forgot that there were 8,000 people in front of us,” she said, referring to the kiss. “But yeah . . . We had good energy and . . . we became friends. Good friends.”

Cazzu also went on to discuss their relationship further, insisting that she and Bad Bunny weren’t dating, but that they were friends—and still are—but that there was a different kind of closeness to their relationship. While all of that may be true, she certainly alluded to the fact that the two artists share a meaningful connection, saying that she and Bad Bunny “shared some moments together, in the moments where they were meant to happen, y ya.”

Cazzu then flashed a coy smile suggesting that those moments were definitely special. She also brought the conversation back to music, saying that even though she and Bad Bunny had connected in a significant way, they almost always talked about music, because music was the central force of both of their lives.

Still, Tirin continued to prod Cazzu for more details. “Una intimidad sexual?” he asked, causing the trapera to stop and look at the camera like this:

And then dismiss the question like this:

But Cazzu was a good sport throughout the interview, even trying to answer that particularly blatant question before deciding not to bother. Rebounding from that slightly cringy moment, Tirin asked something a bit tamer: whether they ever shared an unforgettable moment, something crazy and fun that they did together. Cazzu shared a story about them sneaking into a closed park for kids in the middle of Buenos Aires, almost getting caught by a guardia and ultimately running away.

And you almost can’t blame Tirin for his insistence—even Cazzu’s story about visiting a children’s park has an air of romance to it (can’t you just imagine it as a scene in a rom com?), and they shared several photos after their famous kiss that seemed to pretty much prove that Cazzu + Bad Bunny = Amor.

But Boricua social media comedian Jorge ‘Molusco’Pabón would disagree—he cited Tirin for simply being oblivious to all the hints Cazzu dropped during the interview, slamming Tirin’s “mierda de preguntas” on IGTV and insisting that Cazzu actually revealed the whole truth with two simple words: “y ya.”

That’s right—Pabón hypothesizes that when Cazzu spoke about the “special moments” she and Bad Bunny shared, all that was left unsaid was actually made obvious through her casual “y ya.” Because, according to Pabón, the whole world knows that this simple statement is a way of insinuating that there is too much happened between them to adequately describe. Or, perhaps, the complicated details of all they shared are not really anyone’s business. Y ya.

Although nothing was confirmed in literal, word-for-word answers, fans of Bad Bunny and Cazzu can definitely use this interview as evidence to speculate on what actually went down between them. (And, if you agree with Pabón, you probably already feel like you have a good sense of all that.) What we do know for sure: Cazzu and Bad Bunny have major creative potential. He hopped on a remix for her song, “Loca,” back in 2018, and perhaps 2020 is the year for another musical collaboration between the two. Ya veremos!
