Every part of an athlete's life is put under a microscope at all times. This is not news to those of us who follow professional sports, nor for me as someone who interviews athletes and covers fights on a weekly basis. The scrutiny comes with the paycheck. The more successful you are, the greater the focus becomes, and athletes are expected to "pay the price" with dignity and grace.

Audio: Soul Khan - "Shine"

SK: My new single, "Shine" is available now for sale everywhere through Tommy Boy Entertainment. I hope that y'all like it because it is a different approach from me. The song deals with a lot of the emotions and ideas I have grappled with in terms of fighting rather than contributing to the climate of stigma and alienation. And it's produced by J57 so you can obviously expect magic.
