Former R.E.M. lead singer Michael Stipe has released his first-ever solo single "Your Capricious Soul."

“I took a long break from music, and I wanted to jump back in. I love 'Your Capricious Soul' — it’s my first solo work," said Stipe. "I want to add my voice to this exciting shift in consciousness.

Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
