Though I remain an avid Rock Band and Guitar Hero player, I’ve long ago stopped caring about the releases of new songs for in-game play. I have more than enough to play right now, and I’m broke as a joke most days, so downloadable content is out—well, unless those songs can be as good as one of the new tracks that will appear on the first portable edition of Rock Band.

The hip-hop impresario counts among his holdings the Atlanta club Studio 72, and he’s throwing a Jackson 5-themed New Year’s Eve party this year. And the theme is so driving the party, Michael, Marlon, Jermaine, Tito, and Jackie–and maybe, just for good measure, Dupri’s girlfriend Janet–are all going to be there! (Maybe.)
