HOLLYWOOD, FL — We were overdue for another “LET’S GO CHAMP!” session. At the Hard Rock, Wladimir Klitschko was holding a Q&A session with former champions Michael Moorer and Evander Holyfield until Shannon Briggs inserted himself into the proceedings. Things remained playful for a few minutes until Klitschko touched Briggs’ beard, prompting a quick pull-apart.

Briggs will be back in action this weekend, facing Michael Marrone. Wladimir is currently in camp for an October 24 title defense against Tyson Fury.

Janet_Jackson_Unbreakable

Janet Jackson shares her “unbreakable” spirit with family and friends on the title track from her comeback album Unbreakable (October 2). From this and the previous single “No Sleeep,” it sounds like fans who’ve been missing the Velvet Rope era Ms. Jackson will have their dreams answered.

Rick_Ross_Black_Dollar_cover

As promised, Rick Ross has delivered a project of all-original material today entitled Black Dollar. The Dat Piff exclusive features guest spots from Future, Wale, Anthony Hamilton and August Alsina. It’s a shame this isn’t an official album, since the quality is superior to what we heard on Mastermind and Hood Billionaire. This album solidifies an opinion I’ve had for years — Ross should never rap on a trap beat ever again. The soul-based production (whether it’s 80s synths, orchestral, or smooth/quiet storm) is the landscape where he’s a master.
