Game recently hit up Tim Westwood TV to chop it up with the UK DJ about everything from contacting former manager Jimmy Henchman while on trial and 50 Cent's comments on the situation to the roots of his friendship (just friendship) with Khloe Kardashian, including a possibly sarcastic revelation that Khloe used to stay with him in the hood.
On the rumors he's dating Khloe Kardashian:
"Ain't no situation, man. We cool. Khloe used to stay in a house in the hood, with me and three of my homies in a dope spot. Khloe, she was the girlfriend of one of my homies. Khloe used to have this H2 hummer, and she used to let us do drive-bys out of it. Could be true, could not be true."
On Jimmy Henchman:
"I talked to Jimmy via text through the prison system, and he's optimistic. All I do is pray for him, tell him to hold his head and wish him the best in this situation. It's a very unfortunate situation. Jimmy is one of the best dudes."
On 50 Cent's Comments Regarding Henchman:
"He ain't got nothing else to do, you know? It's them energy drinks, you drink enough of them sh**s, you'll start rambling too."
Watch the interview for more details of his label situation, working with new producers and a possible partnership with Cash Money. You can also peep photos of Game's trip to the UK above.
Saul 'Canelo' Alverez made his return to boxing since his first career loss to Floyd Mayweather by defeating Alfredo Angulo this Saturday in their non-title super welterweight fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV.
According to USA Today, Alvarez (43-1-1, 31 KOs) landed 197 power punches to Angulo's (22-4, 18 KOs) 78 throughout the fight. Referee Tony Weeks stopped the match in the 10th round, much to the displeasure of the packed house at the Grand Garden Arena. Angulo with two swollen eyes, wanted to continue, but Weeks refused to let the fight go on. Angulo was also stopped in his last fight vs Erislandy Lara after his left eye swelled shut in the 10th round.
"The referee stopped the fight, not my problem," said Alvarez after the fight.
The murder for hire trial of former record label exec James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond and co-defendant Rodney Johnson resulted in a hung jury on March 7th on each of the four counts of murder for hire and conspiracy for both Henchman and Johnson, according to Henchman's lawyer J. Bruce Maffeo. The trial began on February 10th and included testimony from more than 35 witnesses. The jury began deliberating on March 4th.
If found guilty, Henchman could've possibly faced another life sentence according to the US Justice Department. Rosemond is currently serving a life sentence for drug trafficking, of which he was convicted of back in October 2013. The current charges relate to the shooting of Lowell "Lodi Mack" Fletcher, a G-Unit affiliate killed in the Bronx in September 2009.
50 Cent has made a number of statements in regards to Henchman's trial, including allegations of police cooperation.
Daylyt has once again made history in the sport of Battle Rap. He and 40 B.A.R.R.S. turned up the heat in their main event battle for QOTR's "Caskets or Classics" event, but no one anticipated exactly how intense Daylyt was going to make it by performing his boldest antic yet. VladTV Battle Rap Journalist Michael Hughes was present on the scene, reporting on all of the drama that filled the building during this historic event.
The show kicked off with a great battle between WeGoHardTV's Cee vs Deisel, as both ladies displayed great bars, punch-lines and solid performances which had the crowd amped up from the very beginning. Following their clash was a very uneven battle between Ms. Miami vs Lady E. Twice in a row now Miami has faced off against opponents who weren't mentally prepared for the battle, as Lady E wound up choking throughout the entire three-rounds just like Precyse did before her.
After the energy had been brought down in the venue, the rematch between Ms. Murk vs Karma Kane breathed some life back into the hearts of the fans. Both ladies put on a solid show, but Murk's punchlines connected with a much greater impact than Kane's, and awarded her more crowd reaction. Overall, a very solid performance from both women. Next up was a true clash of QOTR titans between Official vs C3. This battle became an instant classic from the very first round and is without a doubt a top contender for QOTR battle of the year and should be considered among the Top 10 battles of the year in general. They each went lyrically ballistic in this battle, and it is a certified "MUST SEE" for any Battle Rap fan.
Don Ladyii and Star Girl Lady Red went toe-to-toe next, and they both impressed the crowd with their display of bar quality and more polished performances. They each elevated their lyrics, and showcased much better delivery that produced a very good battle overall as the crowd was very responsive to the both of them. Next up, was the historical battle between Daylyt vs 40 B.A.R.R.S.
First off, this battle made history because it was the first battle to ever take place between a man and a woman consisting of a full three rounds. Secondly, it was historic because of the incredibly bold antic that Daylyt whipped out - pun intended. Now before I go any further, let it be known that this section of the event recap contains SPOILER ALERTS.
40 kicked off the battle doing what she does best, spitting nothing less than heavy-hitting bars, showing everyone that her pen-game is always sharp no matter if she is battling a man or a woman. She wore a very seductive and curve hugging body suit which was also very pleasing to the audience.
When Daylyt began his round he donned his notorious skii mask and spit nothing but serious bars at 40, which he carried on for the first two rounds. Daylyt utilized the angle of exposing the women of Battle Rap on exactly why they are not equal to their male competitors and that the lady spitters should know their place within the sport. Daylyt even wound up pulling out a very religious prop during his second round to make his point clear. It wasn't until the third round, after many quotable bars had been spit, that Daylyt did the unthinkable.
He addressed the crowd and informed all of the men in the venue who had an issue with him stripping down into a thong during his battle in London, to leave immediately. The crowd feared what was coming next, and many men actually began exiting the building. He later began rapping about how big his genitals are, and asked the crowd for a show of hands, who wanted to see his private parts, and that if at least ten people raised their hand, he would "whip it out." Many more than ten women, and some men, raised their hand, so without hesitation, Daylyt climbed onto the top of one of the corners of the ring, unzipped his pants, and whipped it out.
After looking out into the faces of the crowd, all that could be seen was jaws hanging low uncontrollably, and many women's eyes nearly about to pop out of their heads. Although I chose not to look, along with many others including 40, many of the women around me couldn't stop commenting about how it looked like "a big arm." The crowd was left stunned and couldn't be silenced for the remainder of Daylyt's round. After the battle concluded everyone was in awe at the fact that he really did what he did. Regardless of the fact that the battle was a classic when it comes down to the actual bars both Daylyt and 40 spit, it felt as though he 3-0'd the entire battle as a whole with that one antic alone.
For the record, Daylyt did warn everyone on Twitter a day prior to the battle of what was going to happen when he tweeted, "To marrow i get ass naked agen! Wshh."
Fans have taken to Twitter to comment on his bold move. Check out the fan reactions above. What are your thoughts regarding Daylyt actually whipping it out during a live battle?
