The two hitmakers linked up last week and collaborated over a Hit-Boy beat using a reworked Eazy-E sample. They are turning heads but not just for their notable lyrics, rather the disturbing artwork used as a cover.
President of the animal rights organization, Ingrid Newkirk, issued a statement to Billboard on Friday, slamming the duo for the artwork on their new single “Eazy” which shows a skinned monkey.
Newkirk said the photo reminded her of the primates PETA has found, adding that they are not to be abused for any reason.

“I’m JUST GONNA SAY THIS… BE READY !” videographer Kevin Wong captured on Instagram. “Man what I heard tonight Went CRAZYYY.”
He would go on to tag all three artists. “IF WE DON’T WORK. WE CAN’T EAT.”
In a separate clip, the trio and a group of guests, which reportedly included Alexander Wang, vibed to a new track that featured an Eazy E sample. You can hear it and see footage from the session below.
The “Hate it or Love it” rapper says the music industry hasn’t shown him the respect he deserves.
Popular West Coast rapper The Game believes the music industry is yet to acknowledge him because he is yet to be a “puppet” for money. On Sunday, October 24th the emcee took to Twitter to express his feelings about his Hip Hop career.
” never got my flowers from the industry cause wouldn’t be a puppet for the dollar bill #ThugLife,” he tweeted. “You know how many of your favorite WEST COAST artists I hand a hand in puttin on??? Just being a good n***a. Was offered finders fees, could’ve signed n****s….. etc, I just wanted to see n****s from my side win.”
The Game then added, “Ask Dr. Dre…. Ask Top Dawg, ask n****s… I been solid for n****s since 2003 in this shit. The definition of “GOOD LOOKIN.”
According to REVOLT, the form G-Unit rapper said that he was the best rapper to come out of Compton — even being ahead of Kendrick Lamar. The Game made this statement during a Clubhouse conversation with West Coast rappers Kxng Crooked and Glasses Malone. “Can’t nobody in Compton out rap Game, n***a. Can’t nobody in Compton out rap me,” he stated. “Kendrick my n***a. Kendrick doing his shit. I love that n***a to death. N***a, I flew past Kendrick when that n***a was on foot, n***a, in a Range Rover and showed him how to do this shit.”
He continued with confidence, “Don’t play. Don’t play with Game name. Compton, n***a. Hardest n***a in Compton, rapping, lyricist, me. Any n***a that say any different, I’ll body him and any n***a he fuck with.” The rapper also claimed that he considered, Kendrick Lamar, MC Ren, and DJ Quik to be the top three rappers from his hometown, aside from himself.
The Game has been around for a long time, and as his recent claims say he did put artists on songs and give them a bigger platform but it is factual that no one holds him on the same level as other Hip Hop legends.
Born on this date in 1975, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is undoubtedly one of the most influential forces in the game today. From music to movies to successful business ventures, Fif has always stayed on top of his game ever since he made his unconventional entrance at the end of the last millennium.
What has always kept 50’s name in the people’s mouths is the fact that he always had someone else’s name in his! Not to be confused with the common studio gangster, 50 has not only survived, but remained triumphant and relevant after all of his beefs.
Here’s a short list of some of Fif’s most mentioned beefs in and out of the studio:
1. Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff
This beef between street soldier and kingpin became a story reminiscent of David and Goliath, with 50 Cent battling the most feared gangster in his Jamaica, Queens hometown. This riff was depicted in 50’s blockbuster film Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. The real ending? Fif is a successfull businessman and Supreme is currently in a federal supermax correctional facility for life.
On 50’s first widely recognized track “How To Rob” featuring The Madd Rapper, he creatively spits scenarios about him catching several of your favorite rappers and R&B singers slipping. One of them happened to be the Terror Squad top recruit Big Pun, who didn’t take it very lightly. On Pun’s Yeeeaah Baby! album, he tells Fif on one of the tracks, “I’m gona make a song called ‘How I beat your fuckin ass’…”. Nothing never happened off wax with this beef and Pun passed suddenly on February 7, 2000.
With the G-Unit at the top of the rap tier at the turn of the 21st Century, if you weren’t with them, you and your crew were definitely getting rolled over. The Game, who happened to be the only recruit on the Guerrilla Unit squad that wasn’t from the East Coast, made the mistake by believing that his career would remain afloat without 50. With no help against the barrage of battle records from G-Unit to the unsuccessful “Boycott G-Unit” campaign, it’s safe to say that Fif come out on top of this one.
The Bawse seemed to be the only artist that has even been able to maintain his relevance after beef with Mr. Jackson. Ironically, this beef started over an alleged wrong look at the BET Awards towards Ross. These two traded bars until Fif came out with the “Officer Ricky” track, in which 50 promised told Rozay “Ima fuck your life up for fun’. At the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards in ATL, Gunplay from Ross’ Maybach Music Group allegedly had his chain snatched and Fif was seen wearing the chain days later.
His battle with 50 Cent should’ve been a warning to the rest of the artist who came after him with a problem with the Queens MC. These two were from the same hood, which made the beef that much more personal. While 50 claims that Rule hid behind the protection of “Supreme” McGriff, who was suspected of facilitating the unsuccessful hit on Jackson, Rule maintained a successful career until the continuous physical confrontations and vicious shots proved to be too much for certified platinum Murder Inc. artist. This year, these two bumped heads on a flight, but time must have healed old wounds because the two just greeted each other with a “what’s up” as they flew together.
The Game penned a heartfelt message to his son on Instagram following the 17-year-old’s accomplishment of graduating high school and earning a scholarship to the University of Oregon.
In the message, the game lets fans in on how it all began for him. “I can remember your mother @___aleska telling me she was pregnant with you & us both not knowing what on earth to do or how we were going to do it… But on that day, I promised her that by the time you were born I’d be a millionaire & at the time that was 100% cap,” he began.
“I just wanted her to know that I was in it with her for the long haul no matter what was ahead. I started watching 106 & Park while bagging up dope just to keep us afloat & there was this one episode where the rapper ‘Shyne’ was on the show. I said to myself, ‘that’s it… I’m bout to learn how to rap’ !!! I was trash af in the beginning but as the months passed & your mothers stomach grew, I got better & better. By the time you were born, I was signed to Dr. Dre & looking back,” he continued by saying he thought he shouldn’t have made it out alive but was able to overcome adversity to reach success.
“I really don’t know how the hell I was able to grind the way I did as fast as I did to secure that deal but I did it. I did it for YOU… I did it for your mother & I’ve never told you about everything that happened in between to secure your future but I shouldn’t have made it out alive,” he stated.
“From the day you were born to your 8th grade graduation, to now, I’ve given you my all & I’m so fucking proud of you today that even shedding tears wouldn’t convey my hearts inner most joys. You are more than I expected you to become & I will always be here to support you as I have been. You are a champion & today… a CALABASAS HIGH-SCHOOL CLASS OF 2021 GRADUATE & that my son is the greatest gift you could give me & your mother at this level in life. Thank you & I love you more than life,” the rapper concluded.

It has been 4 long years since Kendrick Lamar has dropped an album. At this point in his career, it is no surprise when it comes to K-Dot’s time lapses between albums. His previous release, DAMN, is his fourth full-length release since his Section. 80 debut in 2011. He followed that with his major-label debut, Good Kid, M.A.A.D City a year later. That would be the last time K Dot dropped projects in consecutive years.
The time lapses between projects are something that TDE has adopted with each artist. One can speculate that K Dot would have dropped a project last year, but it was not the most opportune time.
According to The Game, 2021 is the return of King Kendrick Lamar. He recently took to IG live to commend J. Cole’s rapping on The Off-Season, feeling inspired and K. Dot’s upcoming release.
“I talked to Top Dawg, says The Compton rapper. “You know, he told me Kendrick ’bout to hit ni**as with some sh*t real soon and sh*t. So, you know, who knows how real soon that it but if Kendrick is working, that sh*t is always major. “That’s my lil ni**a. Love that ni**a to death.”
