That being said, there are some things in life that just aren't accessible for free on the internet no matter how badly we want them to be. One of those things is food. Another is live performances.

    Ray J's new cover art and single title are currently making waves in the blogosphere for their equally outrageous content. The title, "I Hit It First," may give you some indication that we're going to be getting something referring to his ex, Kim Kardashian, and the cover art makes it even clearer, if we weren't sure at first.
