Michael Jackson, Michael Album

Epic Records

If you're Randy Jackson and you wanna be startin' somethin', Twitter is obviously the way to go.

The youngest Jackson brother questioned the authenticity of Michael—the first posthumous album of supposedly new material from the late Michael Jackson—by unleashing a series of rants on his account...

"I heard the music and I immediately said it wasn't his voice," read one of about 50 consecutive tweets Randy sent out last night.

"Me and my nephew were the first to say that it wasn't his voice on some of the tracks," he pointed out, before criticizing the people handling Michael's estate ("We don't see eye to eye") and those involved with this new collection of songs.

"[Jackson estate coexecutor] John McClain insisted that no family members were allowed at his studio where the project was being completed," he wrote. "My first thought was, what are they trying to hide."

Randy also lashed out at Sony, saying the record label "has 250 mil reasons to convince the public that it is his voice, if you know what I mean."

But what's upsetting Randy most is that his "brother isn't here, and all these people are more concerned about making money off his death," he said. "My brother was a perfectionist, and they are paying no regard to quality.

"This story has not ended, things are still unfolding," he concluded.

In other words, 50 tweets and counting.
