The other night, Supreme Team hosted The Game’s official birthday celebration, an all black “Black Friday Affair” in Los Angeles at Friday Night Rox at Roxbury. Among those on hand for the rapper’s birthday were Wiz Khalifa, Ty $, Too Short, Joe Moses and Laura Govan. Wiz kept the bottles of Ace of Spades coming and enjoyed several spliffs, while Game opted for Dom Perignon Luminous. Game also took to the mic to thank everyone for coming out in his honor, but then kept a low profile. Ty $ went on the mic to perform his hit single, ‘Paranoid’. Check out additional pictures after the cut. (more…)
Game visited with 92 Q in Baltimore the other day to promote his new VH1 reality series ‘Marrying The Game’, where the rapper talked about how it compares to other reality shows and how his fiance Tiffney Cambridge talked him into being on the program.
“It’s her reality show. She was like, ‘I’m tired of teaching. I’ve been teaching for 10 plus years and I need to be out there like Shaunie O’Neal and Evelyn and do my thing. Would you just take the meeting with the VH1 people?’,” Game explained. “I’m like yo, I’m not a reality show type of dude you know what I mean? Finally she wore me down. Sometimes your woman, she got ways. She bought an outfit and she twerked it a little different way than she did the last week, so she got me down there and they start talking about a million dollars or something like that. Whatever we’re shooting for, a million dollars, I’m with it. So we did it and reality set it so if the wedding was on, then it was off, and the rest of it November 19th the world is gonna be able to watch.”
As for how the show differs from T.I. and Tiny, he said, “You know what, I love T.I. and Tiny’s show. It involves family, it’s a street dude and Tiny, they good. They’re like the good hood couple that made it. LaLa have coy, she’s playing it safe and Melo he’s an NBA superstar, it’s all good. Jim and Chrissy they do their New York thing, they’re doing their thing. We’re in LA, we’re ratchet fabulous. My family, my kid’s crazy man. I’m a little crazy. The only one that’s got sense on the show probably is my grandma and wifey depending on which episode you catch, but even she gets on her character a little bit and she’s all the way Christian, but we’re dealing with infidelity and clubs and chillin and getting a little crazy man, so it’s dope. Ours play out a little bit more like a movie than a reality show.”

Game is out with behind the scenes footage from his ‘Celebration’ music video, directed by Matt Alonzo. The track is from the Los Angeles rapper’s upcoming fifth studio album ‘Jesus Piece’.
Game introduced the video saying, “You all know what it is. It’s Game. Hurricane. The song is ‘Celebration’, produced by SAP and Cool & Dre, featuring the homies Lil Weezy, Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa and Tyga. We’re gonna be out here all day just having fun. The video is a little bit reminiscent of ‘Like A G Thang’. I wanted people to come and really be having a good time. You know, eating, playing ball, having fun, a little drank, a little smoke. Kids will be out here. Good time, man.”
Matt Alonzo described his gameplan stating, “I really wanted to show what the artists life were like away from the stage and limelight and all that stuff. That’s kind of what we captured here today. Barbeque, real life stuff… It’s a nice, relaxed day. We’ve got a nice audience here. Saturday, nice audience is here, chilling, the sun’s out. It couldn’t be better.”
After the shoot rapped up on the third day, Matt said, “Crazy, crazy video. Crazy three days of shooting. I’m done, I’m tired. It’s now time to go to the editing board and start cutting stuff up.”

Snoop Dogg posted highlights from his show with Busta Rhymes, T-Pain, The Game, Nelly and Fat Joe in Australia on the Doggumentary Tour. Watch performances of ‘Dreams’ and House Of Pain’s ‘Jump Around’ via YouTube below.
Snoop Dogg videotaped himself making a phone call to The Game, who injured himself smashing a guitar trying to be a rock star. “I damn near cut my finger off, smashed a guitar and sh**,” Game explained. Snoop then told him he had three weeks to recover for his basketball game. Listen to the conversation via YouTube below.
The Game doesn’t want to be referred to as a gangster rapper anymore thanks to a lawsuit being directed his way and a desire to win a court case, prompting TMZ to get sarcastic about it and repeatedly call him a gangster rapper. A lawyer for the ex G-Unit artist is asking the judge to remove references to him being a gangster or gangster rapper during the trial spawned from a lawsuit filed against him for allegedly punching a man during a pickup basketball game. Game fears the description would prejudice the jury against him.
A TMZ report at MySpace has since been removed.
Tila Tequila updated her Twitter followers earlier today in response to The Game’s interview with Harvey Levin of TMZ (watch below) on Friday, where the rapper denied being the father of Tila’s baby, assuming she’s telling the truth about being pregnant in the first place. The ‘Shot At Love’ reality star writes:
hhah YES TMZ I AM WATCHING AND GAME IS LYING! IM HEADED TO YOUR STUDIO NOW TO TELL YOU THE REAL DEAL! ON MY WAY!!!!!! POW!
Game didn’t even know how 2 answer Harvey’s questions. He kept stuttering cuz GAMES A LIAR! 9 Months from now I will take the Paternity Test
Game not only lied to the world, to you guys, to me, but he also lied to his OTHER baby mama Which I Didnt know he had! So he fu**ed himself
