Fat Joe Claims Drake is the 'Michael Jackson of This Time'

Mahlik Campbell music /

Drake once boasted he could "dance like Michael Jackson" – a bold claim after simply hitting the "Toosie Slide." Yet Fat Joe appears to agree with this comparison in more ways than one.

Chopping it up with Rick Ross on Instagram Live, the topic of Rozay's friendship with Drake came up, leading Joey Crack to voice his opinion that Drizzy is the MJ of this generation.

"Drake is possibly the hardest person to get in touch with," Fat Joe says around the 40-minute mark of the conversation. "And let’s be clear: Every song he does goes No. 1. He’s just like the Michael Jackson of this time."

Ross went on to say that the love Drake shows him is "genuine" and that he himself never "little homie'd" the Six God at the beginning of their nearly decade-long relationship, a couple of the reasons their bond is so tight.

"It's been like that for close to a decade now since he came into the game," Ross says. "Even when I might have been the hottest at the time I never 'Little Homie'd none of the n****s coming up."

Once Fat Joe's take on the new King of Pop made its way to social media, nothing could stop the flow of reactions. Many people persisted that there's only one Mike; a handful of others sympathized with Joe's point.

Forget the Drake debate. Let's just all agree that Fat Joe has the best "Lean Back" and MJ the greatest lean forward. I mean, that dip in "Smooth Criminal" is serious!
