As I'm sure most of you guessed, April Fools.

Justin Fargas recently signed a three-year, $14 million contract with the Oakland Raiders. Why, then, is he so blue?

he musically-inclined Fargas owns 3rd Eye Entertainment. His record label released his first rap album, "Young Hugg in Black and White," for Christmas 2006.

Yes, Justin Fargas plans to release his first country album, "Black, White and Blue," in time for Christmas 2008. But why the change of heart?
