Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: ERTS) announced today that former Long Beach State University pitcher and Major League baseball Rookie of the Year finalist Jered Weaver will grace the cover of MVP™ 07 NCAA® Baseball, scheduled for release in February 2007 under the EA SPORTS™ brand.

Jered Weaver made a name for himself at Long Beach State as a hard-throwing pitcher, where he won the Roger Clemens Award (2004) as the top pitcher in NCAA baseball. He was also recognized that year as an NCAA First-Team All-American and the Golden Spikes award winner, given annually to the top player in college baseball.

Weaver, who now plays for the Los Angeles Angels, tied a 56-year-old MLB record in his rookie year, for most wins to start a career when he won his first nine consecutive starts in the Major Leagues, equaling the record set by Whitey Ford of the New York Yankees in 1950. The six-foot-seven right-handed pitcher finished his rookie season with an 11-2 record and an ERA of 2.56 to become a top candidate for Rookie of the Year honors. Now you too can pitch like Jered Weaver in MVP 07 NCAA Baseball with Rock and Fire pitching, an all-new pitching innovation from EA SPORTS.

EA continues to innovate on its acclaimed gameplay engine by introducing Rock and Fire Pitching, a revolutionary pitching mechanic that will forever change the way you deliver that blistering pitch past the batter. Rock and Fire pitching gives you ultimate control and increased feel to more realistically emulate the real life presence of stepping onto the mound, winding up and delivering the ultimate pitch.

With ESPN announcers Mike Patrick and two-time All-American Kyle Peterson back behind the microphone calling the action, this year's MVP 07 NCAA Baseball promises to deliver the most authentic NCAA baseball experience to date. Continuing to deliver on our partnership with ESPN, MVP 07 NCAA will include ESPN real-time features* such as an ESPN ticker and live ESPN Sportscenter radio updates. Cheerleaders, crowd chants, and team fight songs are additional elements that add to the atmosphere and realism of this year's title. Plus, there are now an increased number of conferences, teams and authentic stadiums, creating a true-to-life NCAA baseball experience.

MVP 07 NCAA Baseball joins NCAA® Football and NCAA® March Madness® in the EA SPORTS™ family of popular NCAA-licensed properties. Produced by EA Canada in Vancouver, British Columbia, MVP 07 NCAA Baseball is not yet rated and will be available on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system.

DJ Clue

After a way-too-long six year break between official album releases on the Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam label, mixtape impresario and Desert Storm mogul DJ Clue? returns on December 19th with the arrival of THE PROFESSIONAL, Part 3, the long-awaited sequel to the all-star-studded The Professional, Pt. 2 (released February 2001).

If it were possible to outdo the guest-list on Pt. 2, then THE PROFESSIONAL, Part 3 has done it - with the Who's Who of hip-hop's A-list, starting with "Like This." The album's first single pick, co-written and produced by fellow Def Jam artist Kanye West, features Kanye and Fabolous, the newest Def Jam mega-signing. Brooklyn-born Fabolous has been the core artist on DJ Clue's Desert Storm imprint for his two albums in 2003 (the RIAA platinum Street Dreams) and 2004 (Real Talk, certified gold). His upcoming Def Jam album debut, From Nothing To Something, will drop in early 2007.

DJ Clue? exercises his craft as a producer on a hefty six tracks of Part 3, starting with "Middle Figure U" featuring Camron and Juelz Santana, then "It Was All Good A Week Ago" (Part 1 featuring Mario Winans and Part 2 featuring the Game and Mario), followed by "I Really Wanna Know You" featuring Jagged Edge and Fabolous; "The Gold" featuring Mobb Deep; "Liberty Bell" featuring Beanie Sigel and Cassidy; and the album's closing track, "Da Animal" featuring Stylez P.

And the guest list doesn't stop there - that's just the beginning. There's Snoop Dogg on "Almost Fucked" (produced by Lt Hutton); Young Jeezy and Juelz Santana on "Fuck Off" (produced by Develop); Lil Wayne, Ransom, and Rick Ross on "Da Scene" (produced by Doughboyz); Jadakiss on "Ugly" (produced by Swizz Beatz); Mike Jones and Paul Wall on "Grill & Woman" (produced by Chops); Fat Joe and Remy Ma on "U Don't Wanna" (produced By Baby Paul); and M.O.P. on "NY Giant" (produced by the Heat Makerz).

The million dollar dreams of Young Jeezy turned into cold hard major label reality when Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101 (released July 2005) shot to #1 on the R&B and Rap albums charts and #2 on the pop side, and blew up to RIAA platinum in 11 weeks. The break­through hit, "Soul Survivor" took the #1 spot on the R&B chart. Jeezy was named to Rolling Stone's New Faces: Artists To Watch and MTV News' You Hear It First, as a phenomenal seven tracks from Let's Get It found their way onto radio and the charts - "And Then What," "Soul Survivor," "Trap Or Die," "Go Crazy," "Tear It Up," "Trap Star," and "My Hood." Let's Get It went on to top critics' year-end lists and was named by The New York Times as the Pop Album Of The Year.

It was nearly a decade ago that Jamaica, Queens, NYC native DJ Clue? (Ernesto Shaw) made the transition from the burgeoning mixtape industry to the major label domain of Def Jam Recordings with his first over-the-counter release, The Professional (1997). His parallel career as a New York vj and dj - first on MTV's "Direct Effect," then on radio station Hot 97, and later on Power 105 - combined with his imaginative remixing skills gained him access to the hottest new tracks from hip-hop and pop's most important names.

The Professional (which hit #3 on the R&B chart and #26 on the pop side) spun off a pair of Top 40 tracks, "It's On" and "Ruff Ryders Anthem," and was eventually certified RIAA platinum. DJ Clue Presents: Backstage: A Hard Knock Life (released in 2000) documented the touring that accompanied his pal Jay-Z's multi-platinum album. The Professional, Part 2 was first released in December 2000, propelled by the hit single "Back 2 Life 2001," featuring Mary J. Blige and Jadakiss. The album also featured new exclusive music from hip-hop notables Jay-Z, Eminem, DMX, Snoop, Foxy Brown, Method Man, Li'l Kim, Busta Rhymes, Miami natives Trick Daddy and Trina, and many others.

Danity Kane drops a new single "Ride For You" with their classic R&B melodies and harmonies. Check out the audio and lyrics below.

Real

Windows

[Verse 1 - Aundrea]
Lately, I've been tryna fight whatever's pulling us under
it's got a hold and really making me wonder
what it takes to get through
I gotta stick with you, my baby
Baby tell me:
Maybe I'm foolishly overreacting
But being without you I can't imagine
It's just to close to the heart and
And I won't stand it if were broken apart

[Chorus - Group]
Do you hear me?
Baby ya gotta believe in the things that make you & me win together
Don't you throw in the towel
I'm keeping my promise to you I got ya back now
When the chips are down
It seems like it's so hard for you to move ahead
Just know that I am by your side
There aint no ifs, buts, or maybes,
I'm gonna stay down and ride for you baby

[Verse 2 - Dawn]
We've been cutting it close with the backwards & forwards
It's rocking the boat; we gotta get control of this
Let's take it back to three years ago
When you said that we could make it through whatever, ever
And to me it sounded like you meant forever, ever
Leaving was not an option, baby, never, never
Now don't you believe in a love that's worth a fight
In you is everything that I'm missing
So give us a chance

[Chorus]
Do you hear me?
Baby ya gotta believe in the things that make you & me win together
Don't you throw in the towel
I'm keeping my promise to you I got ya back now
When the chips are down
It seems like it's so hard for you to move ahead
Just know that I am by your side
There aint no ifs, buts, or maybes,
I'm gonna stay down and ride for you baby

[Verse 3 - D. Woods]
Don't you dare tell me we gotta let it go...
We been on top for too long just to let it go under
I don't wanna hear that
I just can't hear that
and know
Wherever you wanna take me
I'll go
I been with you for too long to start over with another
I know that you hear me
Just tell me you hear me

[Chorus]
Do you hear me?
Baby ya gotta believe in the things that make you & me win together
Don't you throw in the towel
I'm keeping my promise to you I got ya back now
When the chips are down
It seems like it's so hard for you to move ahead
Just know that I am by your side
There aint no ifs, buts, or maybes,
I'm gonna stay down and ride for you baby
