V Exclusive: Game Breaks Down Jay-Z Diss Track 'Uncle Otis': 'It's Just The Truth...'

The VIBE offices turned into a barbershop moments ago when we came across "Uncle Otis," Game's latest verbal attack against Jay-Z and... helpless victims Kreayshawn and Marc Anthony.

As the laughter and banter ensued, we felt the need to get Game on the phone and see just why Chuck Taylor decided to hurl more rocks at the Throne.

"Hurricane Game is backno more games," Game tells VIBE on his latest scathing diss track. "It's R.E.D. Album timefuck the bullshit. I'm about to go back to my old self and start killing everybody."

"Man, with everyone [the beef] is ongoing. It might have died for a minute but I aint never forgot about it. With 'Uncle Otis,' it's just a shot in the dark, man. it aint for nobody to take personal. It's like my version of 'How To Rob.' I'm just having fun, getting back to the days when I was just spittin."

"I did this shit at like 5:00 AM man with five-seconds on the clock. I heard 'Otis' before I got to the studio, like 'Oh this is 'Otis'?. I gotta kill this shit.' We couldn't find the instrumental , so my man Mars 1500 did a new beat."

Reciting the craziest lines from "Uncle Otis," we had to ask for a detailed expalnation for each. —Mikey Fresh

Game breaks down the most lethal diss lines on "Uncle Otis" below:

At Jay-Z: “Here is a dome shot to this n—a named Otis/ Niggas think they the coldest but n—a you just the oldest/N—az be chasin they youth but its gone/Yo, ‘Ye this n—a ain’t even wanna put you on and you turn around and put on Shawn…"

Game says: It's just the truth man, Jay had a time when he was unfuckwitable. Nobody could touch him and I feel like that time has kinda passed. Jay is like Sugar Ray Robinson if hip-hop was boxing. There comes a time when you gotta be like Lenox Lewis and you gotta go out when you're on top as king. Versus trying to do the MIchael Jordan thing playing for the Wizards.

At Jay-Z and Kanye: “Who run the world?/Jason./Will Kelly Rowland come and be my “Motivation”?/if you invented Swag then I invented gangsta/ got one in the chamber/the throne is now in danger…”

Game Says: I feel like they saying 'Watch The Throne' I'm watching. Let's go! I'm not impressed with nothing right now. The Throne is for the taking, anybody can get it right now. I'm take my shot on August 23rd.

At Kreayshawn: And I dont wear no Fendi Fendi Gucci Gucci Prada/ I'm Charles Loubotin/U niggas aint saying Nada/ Little white bitch betta stay in ya place /call me a nigga, I'm stick the K in ya face

Game says: I was just fuckin' around. I never met her in real life or even know what she looks like. I just seen the N-word shit on Twitter. It's just a shot in the dark and I don't really think she could do anything if she takes it personal. But her saying "nigga" ain't cool. That ain't never gonna be cool, ever ever.

Tyler: “I created Tyler the Creator/ Here go courtside seats / You’re now tuned into the greatest”

Game says: He's from the West Coast and anything that came after me on the West is something that I had a hand in creating. Just like Snoop and Dre with me. It ain't a shot, we just talked this morning. It's all love.

Marc Anthony: Jennifer Lopez just got a divorce and I already got her in the Porsche/trying to teach her “how to love, how to love”/ Marc Anthony too short look at that n—a look and I’m “6 Foot 7 Foot 8 Foot”…”

Game says: I just had to put my two cents on it, J.Lo's back on the market. [Laughs]

Final Words: If see you Uncle Otis, tell him to holla at me. - Game

Erykah Badu Denies Producers Contacted Her For 'Surviving R. Kelly'

Erykah Badu is hitting back against dream hampton after she claimed that producers of Surviving R. Kelly contacted the singer to appear in the Lifetime docuseries. Badu claims that she was never contacted, and would like hampton to provide the receipts or apologize.

It all started when a fan pointed out that Badu and R. Kelly worked with one another years ago, which is why she allegedly chose not to be apart of the docuseries. Erykah rejected that comment, stating that she had never worked with him on music or declined to appear in the documentary.

Hampton stepped in by claiming that a producer attempted to contact Badu, but did not receive a response. "I asked Producer T. Farris to contact @fatbellybella to be in doc because I wanted clarity on two things: 1) a quote attributed to her, 'No one has done more for Black people than R. Kelly' & 2) what she was thinking when she called him her "brother" at Soul Train Awards," dream tweeted.

Badu quickly responded: No ma’am. I WAS NOT EVER contacted by anyone to be in [email protected] You know that’s not true. I wasn’t a necessary component. You had all the right people, the ones close to the situation...But for now, produce this “producer’s” request or... APOLOGIZE. It’s simple."

Badu and hampton's latest back and forth comes only days after the neo-soul artist was criticized for seemingly defending R. Kelly amid his sexual abuse allegations at a concert in Chicago. She later clarified her remarks about the disgraced singer, saying that she did not approve of his actions, but believed he was deserving of love and assistance.

Check out Badu and hampton's exchange below.

Judge Removes Tekashi 6ix9ine's Lawyer From Racketeering Case

Tekashi 6ix9ine is in need of new legal representation. A judge has reportedly removed one of 6ix9ine's lawyers from his racketeering case ahead of his trial, XXL reports. The decision was made during a pre-trial conference on Tuesday (Jan. 22).

The presiding Judge Paul A. Engelmayer ruled that the 6ix9ine's lawyer, Lance Lazarro, would have to be removed from the case due to a potential conflict of interest. Lazarro reportedly represented Tekashi's co-defendants, Faheem "Crippy" Walter and Kifano "Shotti" Jordan before representing 6ix9ine in his racketeering case.

During the conference, Engelmayer stated that he was upset that Lazarro had not disclosed his relationship with the co-defendants previously. Lazarro reportedly represented Walter for a gang assault charge in Oct. 2018 and Jordan for numerous charges in 2009 and 2015. He explained that he didn't think the matter was important to mention.  Judge Engelmayer responded by noting that it wasn't the attorney's place to determine whether his previous work was significant.

Lazzaro will not be able to act as Tekashi's lawyer until he sends letters detailing the extent of his relationships with Walter and Jordan. If the judge finds no conflict of interest, Lazarro will be able to return as an acting attorney for Tekashi. Dawn Florio will continue as part of Tekashi's legal team.

As previously reported, the "Stoopid" artist, Walter, and Jordan are awaiting trial for a racketeering case. Tekashi pleaded not guilty to the federal charges in Nov. 2018. If convicted, he could face a life sentence in prison. His trial date is slated to begin on Sept. 4.
