Game Calls Out Frank Ocean In New (And Unnecessary) Diss Track “Bigger Than Me”: Listen

Rapper Game surprised as the romantic lead of Nicki Minaj‘s “Pills N Potions” video. There, he obliges to draping fur over his bare chest, biting on one of Minaj’s bunny ears and, most importantly, gazing wistfully at the Pink Print femcee’s direction. In short, he did the complete opposite of what he’s done as of late: maintain the tough-gangsta persona of his West Coast upbringing, but with groan-worthy beefs that now overshadows his (otherwise respectable) musical output.

Then came “Bigger Than Me,” a misogynistic diss track that declares him to be the black Marshall Mathers (he’s gotten over his beef with Eminem, see), takes aim at XXL‘s new Freshmen class wholesale, and while calling out Frank Ocean in the process: “Tampon lyricists, evacuate the premises / Mute BET cyphers, because I don’t want to hear that shit / May be you rest in piss, f— n—-s / hey Frank Ocean, go ahead and f— these f— n—-s.” He ends by suggesting that Miguel sing to his song.

Nicki Minaj’s “Pills N Potions” Video: Watch Her Hang With Game & Take Out Her Boobs

Game-Playing
Did we read somewhere that Nicki Minaj‘s “Pills N Potions” video, directed by Diane Martel, was supposed to premiere Monday (June 9) evening? It actually didn’t arrive until well after midnight, but no matter — Queen Barb’s latest is here in full, and you can see it above.

What you’ll be watching is Nicki crying tears of what appears to be liquid mercury, hanging out with a shirtless Game and wearing bunny ears while posing rather sullenly. Oh, and she also pulls her boobs out of her shirt at one point, and there are a few obvious product placement scenes (hello, Official Beats Pill and Minajesty By Nicki Minaj perfume), so if you’re into that sort of thing, then you’d better get to watching.

Rudimental Discuss Collaborating With Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding & Game: Interview

Feel The Rudimental Love
Two weeks ago, Rudimental made headlines when they tossed a photo on Instagram indicating that they’d just recorded new material with Game and Ed Sheeran. Earlier this week, the hit-making UK drum and bass/dance-pop act played a gig in Central Park with their friend Emeli Sande, and we took the opportunity to lure the lads into our studio and have a chat — and it turns out Game and Ed weren’t the only big names making music with the quartet recently.

“We did a session in L.A., in La La Land, with Ed Sheeran, and The Game turned up as well,” explains Rudimental’s Amir Amor. “[Game] actually phoned [Ed Sheeran] and was like, ‘Hey, man, my girl really loves your music’…and Ed invited him to the studio… Ellie Goulding popped in as well.”

Ne-Yo Releases New Single “Lazy Love” Off ‘R.E.D.’ Album: Listen

Ne-Yo was probably only hoping for good vibes surrounding his upcoming fifth studio album R.E.D., but no album release comes without controversy. The R&B singer recently got some heat for the name of his album, as rapper Game came out with similarly-titled LP (The R.E.D. Album) just last year. None of that heat, though, came from Game, who seems cool with the “Let’s Go” artist using a similar album title: “I dont know what that’s about, but I’ve always known Ne-Yo to be a cool dude, so I’m pretty sure he got his reasoning,” he told XXL mag.

It’s not often we see two artists avoiding a beef. Well done, guys. Now let’s enjoy the first musical offering off of R.E.D., the mellow jam “Lazy Love”. More »

Drake Drops A Verse On Game’s “Good Girls Gone Bad”

Game’s newest release The R.E.D. Album officially drops August 23, though the Internet is being gifted with selections from the LP. Drake cameos on track “Good Girls Gone Bad”, and though Game sounds genuine when he says the song is dedicated to missing teen Natalee Holloway (“I feel for her daddy so I wrote this on Father’s Day”), the Take Care rapper keeps it silly by filling in his verse with references to cartoons. Listen below.
