Got to Be There

Globally known for being the King of Pop, at the root of Michael Jackson's historic and trailblazing career is his love for Black urban culture (from which hip hop springs forth). And Michael Jackson has been down with hip hop since his years with the Jackson 5, when he began helping to expose aspects of the culture to mainstream audiences in the '70s.

In honor of the fifth anniversary of his death, check out Mike's key hip hop moments and how he's repped the streets since day one.
