This week in entertainment news, Rick Ross announces the title of his new album,
Rihanna covers Vanity Fair, and Tupac’s letter from jail is selling for $225,000.

First up, rapper Rick Ross announces the title of his new album. During an interview with The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1, Ross revealed that the album would be titled “Black Market.” “What we do is build on what we got and take it to the next level. And I think that’s what this project is a lot about,” said Ross. During his visit with Charlamagne and the crew Ross also premiered his brand new single “Sorry,” but that wasn’t what stole the show. The rapper and his new fiancé, Lira Galore, have been the talk of the Internet for the past few weeks and it was only right that Ross bring her along with him to answer those inescapable questions from The Breakfast Club. Some strong points from the interview included Ross speaking on the rap beef between rappers Drake and Meek Mill, his Black Dollar mixtape, his upcoming album “Black Market,” and him being sued for rape.

Next up, singer Rihanna covers Vanity Fair Magazine’s November issue. Shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz, the photo-shoot for this issue took place in Havana, Cuba. Shots stretch from Rihanna standing amongst her adoring fans to lying across the bed naked. In her cover story with Lisa Robinson of Vanity Fair magazine, the singer talked about her past relationships with Chris Brown, Matt Kemp, hooking up with people just for the fun of it, collaborating with Eminem, and being discovered by Jay Z. When asked about her current relationship with Chris Brown, Rihanna stated, “I don’t hate him. I will care about him until the day I die. We’re not friends, but it’s not like we’re enemies. We don’t have much of a relationship now.”

In our final story, Tupac’s letter from jail is selling for $225,000. While incarcerated in the New York Clinton Correctional Facility, Tupac penned a 5-page letter of advice to the young black men of America. The letter was addressed to Nina Bhadreshwar, who is the editor of Death Row Uncut magazine. Tupac’s letter and note that was found with it is now selling for $225,000 on Moments in Time which is a memorabilia website. “They become addicted to death. A True Boss Playa knows when to advance… You must play the game, not let the game play you… A regular Playa plays women… a Boss Playa plays life. A Boss Playa is a thinker, a leader, a builder, a moneymaker, a souljah, a teacher and most of all, a Man! I want all my homiez to know there is another level,” Tupac said in the letter.
