Rappers on television this week include Ludacris, who visits ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Monday; Snoop Dogg, who visits ‘106 & Park’ on Monday; Ice Cube, who visits ‘The Jon Stewart Show’ and ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’ on Tuesday, ‘Live with Regis and Kelly’, ‘Total Request Live’, and ‘106 & Park’ on Wednesday; Damon Dash, who visits ‘Last Call’ on Wednesday; Mos Def, who visits ‘Live with Regis and Kelly’ on Wednesday; and former G-Unit member The Game, who visits ‘106 & Park’ on Wednesday.
‘Hate it or Love it’ is 50 Cent and The Game’s newest hit, and the video version is featured on The Game’s debut CD, ‘The Documentary’. But an extended version on 50’s CD, ‘The Massacre’, is apparently too much for one Maryland man to take. ‘Celebrity Justice’ reports that Kwasi Jones claims The Game and a crew of more than 20 assaulted him and a radio DJ after an interview back in January at a station near Washington D.C. He claims The Game then rapped about it in a song.
Former G-Unit member The Game tells High Times magazine that once he started smoking marijuana, “There was no turning back.” The rapper added, “I became a smoker and I’ll forever be a smoker. Weed is good.” As for his thoughts on the world capitol for legal weed: “Amsterdam is like weed heaven. I almost cried when we had to leave.” Game concluded, “You just feel more manly when you smoke Blunts.”
50 Cent was a no show as former G-Unit member The Game was on hand to present the $200,000 he and 50 donated to Compton Unified School District’s Education Foundation on Wednesday (April 6) at Vista Community Hospital in Los Angeles, California. Check out pictures from WireImage.
According to an admin posting at GUnitWorld.com, Xzibit has responded to former G-Unit member The Game who said the ‘Pimp My Ride’ star’s “time’s come and gone”. “I think that The Game is a young dude that is definitely coming into a serious game and its hard to say man, I don’t think the dude really understands the ramifications of really talking out of turn you know,” Xzibit said. “I mean I don’t come from speaking on other things, I come from just actions and I don’t know I mean if he has a problem with me im not hard to find. I think that hip hop is going to the degree of the ‘WWE’ and when people feel as though they need to feel personified by their image and what not, but im a real dude, I’m a father first and I don’t think he understands that when you are dealing from a level of realness that all that sh** don’t matter, its like everybody’s shooting and everybody can be touched. I just hope that where he’s coming from is from a genuine place and if he really has those genuine feelings towards me, he needs to come speak and address that cause I’m not hard to find.”
The Game Performed in Peterborough, Ontario (which is just outside the City of Toronto) on Tuesday (March 22) at Vibe Nightclub. Security was tight – no camera phones, no video cameras, they even made us take off our shoes! Anyway, as The Game was performing we noticed a light skinned chick with curly hair wearing a beige trench coat video taping and for the longest time we were trying to figure out whether it was Mya.
It was only when I had to leave the club b/c security caught me trying to video tape the 2nd half of the show on my PDA, that I saw her come out of the truck. So I yelled, “Mya Mya can I get a picture?” and homefry was like, “Sorry girl, but I ain even supposed to be here…”
After The Game’s performance, I confirmed with the DJ if it was her and he said yes. Rumor has it is that he flied her to Toronto and spent the whole day (I don’t know which day in particular) in a hotel room.
Former G-Unit member The Game lashed out at Xzibit after the ‘Pimp My Ride’ host said he was overrated. “I hate Xzibit. His time’s come and gone, and he had no reason to hate on me,” Game said. “He said I was overrated. Now I’m platinum in two-and-a-half weeks in America. Him, along with a string of other rap artists, are pretty much bullsh**.”
