KANYE WEST , THE GAME TIDBITS

 

Michael Jackson's Thriller, the best-selling album of all time, is getting big love in time for Valentine's Day. In celebration of the release's 25th anniversary, Epic/Legacy is revisiting it with a deluxe edition containing unreleased bonus tracks mixed by or featuring Kanye West, Akon, Will.I.Am and Jackson himself. Thriller was originally released November 30, 1982, and the new 25th Anniversary Edition, dropping February 12, will have eight extra cuts: a fresh Kanye remix of "Billie Jean"; Akon and Will.I.Am's new take on "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' "; "The Girl Is Mine" and "P.Y.T." remixes by Will.I.Am; the rare unissued song "For All Time," a track from the original recording sessions that has been newly mixed and mastered by MJ; "Someone in the Dark"; "Carousel"; and the original "Billie Jean" demo. The set will also house a DVD with Jackson's Thriller short films, which have been digitally remastered — "Thriller," "Beat It" and "Billie Jean" — as well as his Emmy-nominated performance of the latter song on 1983's "Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever" TV special. Lastly, it will also have an exclusive Jackson-penned greeting to his fans. While the Thriller deluxe edition doesn't drop until February, the Jackson action actually starts in December when he releases a new single and launches a new global-marketing campaign.

 

Rapper The Game (born Jayceon Taylor) has given TMZ.com an autographed pair of sneakers and a signed T-Shirt to auction off for charity. The "one of a kind" Emerica kicks, which have alligator skin and gold detailing, were given to Game by the Bishop Don Juan and are available for bidding at the auction website eBay. The auction, which ends on Dec. 3, is currently going for $1,125. Proceeds will benefit A Place Called Home, an L.A.-based enrichment center for at-risk youth. The non-profit center provides a "positive family environment" and educational enrichment to help youth rise above gangs, drugs and poverty.
