I'm like Michael, recycle, these are not 16's
TAKE YOUR PICK!
Which “Michael” here?
Pop legend Michael Jackson? Hov has called himself the “Mike Jackson of pop” in the past
Basketball legend Michael Jordan? No end of comparisons here
Legendary boxer Michael Tyson? He’s referenced earlier on this same record
Or, per Biggie, all of them
This could also be a playful nod to the children’s book Michael Recycle
Or it could be the Archangel Michael, who goes to war with the Dragon (Satan) in Revelation
Song references “Losing My Religion,” so it could be R.E.M. singer Micheal Stipe, who is big into enviromentalism
