It requires a serious pair of brass balls to take an MJ track with the certified King Of Pop seal and let your own beat lay claim. Samples and mash-ups are to be expected, but to just take on the song as a whole is nearly outlandish in concept. Outlandish, I say! Balderdash. Poppycock. Fortunately, in Australia, there is, apparently, a Titanium Testicle factory right around the corner from <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/m-phazes">M-Phazes'</a> house.
