The #BALLSOHARD Podcast – Michael Jackson’s XScape Review

Michael Jackson's XScape review

This is the first episode of The #BALLSOHARD Podcast, which will generally center around sports, music, pop culture and things of that nature. For my first guest, I talk to my friend Big Money Mike (@popblerd), founder and editor of Popblerd! and also, the biggest Michael Jackson fan I know.

Here’s what you’ll hear on the podcast:

- The upcoming five year anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death
- Our memories of the day he died
- Discussion about the first posthumous Michael album
- A review of XScape including how it was put together
- The teaser single and how it shaped our view of what to expect
- Adding Justin Timberlake to Love Never Felt So Good
- The time frame of the original recordings of the songs
- Our thoughts on the original songs versus the Timbaland (and others) mixed versions
- Whether or not LA Reid should be in charge of another posthumous release
- Who else should be the executive producer if not Timbaland
- A short discussion about the Jackson family and whether his kids will try to follow in his footsteps

Let us know what you think.
