The 10 Craziest Beefs of Game's Career

For Game, beef isn't just what's for dinner. It's also what's for breakfast, lunch, and snack time, too. Over the course of his career, he's been involved in dozens of different beefs and, judging by last weekend's events, he's going to be involved in many more in the future. On Sunday, Game posted a video of him assaulting fellow West Coast rapper 40 Glocc on WorldStarHipHop. The two rappers also took their beef to Twitter where they exchanged words and talked specifically about their physical altercation.

It was pretty nuts. But, are you really all that surprised by Game's actions? The guy loves getting into it with other rappers. So, in light of his most recent war with 40 Glocc, we decided to put together a list of The 10 Craziest Beefs of Game's Career. Something tells us Game's not done adding crazy beefs to his collection.—Chris Yuscavage

The Beef: Game vs. 50 Cent
Why They Were Beefing: At the height of 50's beef with Ja Rule, he was dissing everyone who worked with Ja, including guys like Jadakiss and Fat Joe. Game didn't like his approach to the beef and said so publicly. As a result, 50 kicked him out of G-Unit.
The Outcome: We put this beef first because it's easily the craziest (and most publicized) beef Game has ever been a part of. Even seven years after the beef started, these two still go at it every few months. And, while you'd think they'd just agree to disagree and move on, there are always rumors about a reconciliation. We don't ever see it happening. But, hey: With these two, who knows, right?

The Beef: Game vs. Jay-Z
Why They Were Beefing: Ummm…This one is up for debate. Jay has never really done anything to Game. But, Game has taken many, many shots at him over the years without getting a response.
The Outcome: This beef has basically been dead from the start. Although Game has released a slew of diss tracks aimed at Jay-Z and taken shots at him through the press on a number of different occasions, Jay has refused to respond to him and gone out of his way to let Game look like a fool for attacking him repeatedly. Game's also never really given us a good reason to think that he really hates Jay. But, with all of that said, we wouldn't put it past him to release another diss track aimed at Jay sometime in the future.

The Beef: Game vs. Joe Budden
Why They Were Beefing: Back in the early 2000s, Joe got into a war of words with G-Unit. But, with 50 busy trying to run the G-Unit empire, he sent Game after him and the two exchanged several diss tracks before the beef ran its course.
The Outcome: Initially, Joe and Game didn't really call any sort of truce or anything. Their beef just sort of dissipated. But, in 2008, Game was in New York for a show and decided to reach out to Joe to squash the beef once and for all. It's officially dead now.

The Beef: Game vs. Yukmouth
Why They Were Beefing: In 2004, Yukmouth approached Game at a club in Cali and told him that he had a problem with his mentor 50 Cent. Game responded by putting out a diss track a few days later aimed at Yuk.
The Outcome: After going back and forth and back and forth—and back and forth!—on records, a mutual friend helped these two end their beef.

The Beef: Game vs. Suge Knight
Why They Were Beefing: During their beef, Yukmouth claimed that Game had once been smacked by Suge Knight. And, Game responded by saying that Suge Knight would be "six feet under" if he ever tried to lay a hand on him.
The Outcome: At the 2005 BET Awards, one of Suge's Death Row associates allegedly tried to steal one of Game's chains. Then, at an after party for the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards, Suge was shot by an unknown assailant. Game denied any wrongdoing, but it was clear that this beef could potentially get out of hand. So, Suge and Game agreed to patch things up and put their beef behind them.

The Beef: Game vs. Lil' Eazy E
Why They Were Beefing: Eazy E's son claims that Game has misused his father's name throughout the course of his career.
The Outcome: Game didn't agree with Lil' Eazy's assessment. In fact, he believed that Lil' Eazy was simply trying to make a name for himself by attacking Game. So, he took some shots at him on his song, "120 Bars." But, he also admitted that he didn't really want to beef with Eazy E's son. So, the two squashed their beef during a radio interview.

The Beef: Game vs. Young Gunz
Why They Were Beefing: In the mid-2000s, Game was having trouble getting Jay-Z to respond to his disses, so he started taking shots at some of his Roc-A-Fella artists. That included Young Chris and Neef, who were called out on Game's track, "300 Bars." Game also recorded a track with Katt Williams after the Young Gunz took an innocent shot at the Katt Williams character "Money Mike" on their song, "Set It Off."
The Outcome: Young Chris ran into Game in Los Angeles earlier this year and took a photo with him. He admitted that the Young Gunz's beef with Game was petty and revealed that it was over.

The Beef: Game vs. Video vixens Vida Guerra, Melyssa Ford, and Gloria Velez
Why They Were Beefing: On his song, "Wouldn't Get Far," Game disses those three women—and, to a larger extent, all video vixens—for getting famous by hooking up with famous celebrities. He also said that he hooked up with Guerra.
The Outcome: None of the ladies were particularly happy. But, most of them took the high road and ignored Game. Guerra, however, went on the radio and said that she'd never had any kind of relationship, sexual or otherwise, with Game.

The Beef: Game vs. Ras Kass
Why They Were Beefing: Ras Kass approached Game in a Los Angeles nightclub in 2006 and told him that he didn't appreciate some rhymes that he wrote that he felt were directed at his son.
The Outcome: Like Game's beef with 40 Glocc, this one got physical. On several occasions, these two reportedly fought. And, while Snoop Dogg tried to mediate a truce, they never really deaded their beef.

The Beef: Game vs. Triple H
Why They Were Beefing: Doesn't this prove that Game will literally beef with anyone? In 2006, the wrestler sued the rapper over his name, The Game, which was the moniker Triple H had adopted a few years earlier.
The Outcome: Rather than build a case in the courtroom, Game suggested a PPV fight between the two. He also said that he would "f--- him up." That never happened, though, and this beef disappeared just like so many of Game's other beefs. Is the 40 Glocc beef next?

YG Takes The "Stop Snitchin" Rule Back To Slavery Days In New Video

YG is trying his hand at more cinematically stimulating music video fare for his newest release. For the past two weekends at Coachella, the Compton, Calif. rapper worked through grief and treated the massive crowd to a brand new single from his forthcoming album, 4REAL 4REAL.

During his Coachella set, "Stop Snitchin" called out loose lips from the likes of Tekashi 6ix9ine and others, but the official video released today (April 24) pivots in a totally different direction: to slavery. In the slightly comical visual, YG plays one of several slaves who plots to escape the plantation in search of freedom. However, an individual reluctant to flee falls behind on the night in question and, as the song title suggests, rats them out.

Don't expect the video to be any sort of conscious offering—it gets a little weird when he's hanging from a tree—but if you need a chuckle-inducing break from a stressful day, let a dancing, old cloth-wearing YG be your relief.

As you wait for the fast-approaching release of his album, now due on May 3, watch the video for "Stop Snitchin" up top.

Lil Uzi Vert Returns With "That's A Rack" Music Video: Watch

Lil Uzi Vert is back! The rapper just dropped the music video for "That's a Rack" on Wednesday (April 24).

Nudity must be the theme of this video. The visuals open with Uzi weaving through rows of naked violinists and cellists. As it progresses, the camera shifts to naked women bathing and posing in blue paint.

"That's a Rack" arrives shortly after Uzi decided to come out of retirement. It follows "Sanguine Paradise" and "Free Uzi." "Free Uzi" was reportedly removed from streaming services, however, due to "licensing issues and copyright concerns."

Lil Uzi Vert is prepping for his next album, Eternal Atake. It's unclear when the album is slated to drop as Uzi has previously cited scheduling and production issues.

Watch the video for "That's A Rack" above.

Homecoming: The 5 Best Moments Of Beyoncé’s Documentary

Once Beyoncé became the first African-American woman to headline in its nearly 20-year history, we knew Coachella would never the same. To mark the superstar’s historic moment, the 2018 music and arts festival was appropriately dubbed #Beychella and fans went into a frenzy on social media as her illustrious performance was live-streamed by thousands. (Remember when fans recreated her choreographed number to O.T. Genasis’ “Everybody Mad”?)

With a legion of dancers, singers and musicians adorned with gorgeous costumes showcasing custom-made crests, the singer’s whirlwind performance honored black Greek letter organizations, Egyptian queen Nefertiti, and paid homage to historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Aside from the essence of black musical subgenres like Houston’s chopped and screwed and Washington D.C.’s go-go music, the entertainer performed “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” also known as “The Black National Anthem,” and implemented a dancehall number, sampling the legendary Jamaican DJ and singer, Sister Nancy, to show off the versatility of black culture.

One year after #Beychella’s historic set, the insightful concert film, Homecoming, began streaming on Netflix and unveiled the rigorous months of planning that went into the iconic event. The 2-hour 17-minute documentary highlights Beyoncé’s enviable work ethic and dedication to her craft, proving why this performance will be cemented in popular culture forever. Here are the best moments from Beyoncé’s Homecoming documentary.

The Intentional Blackness

“Instead of me bringing out my flower crown, it was more important that I brought our culture to Coachella.”

Throughout the documentary, Beyoncé made it known that everything and everyone included in the creative process leading up to the annual festival was deliberately chosen. “I personally selected each dancer, every light, the material on the steps, the height of the pyramid, the shape of the pyramid,” says Beyoncé. “Every tiny detail had an intention.” When speaking on black people as a collective the entertainer notes, “The swag is limitless.” Perhaps the most beautiful moments in Homecoming are the shots that focus on the uniqueness of black hair and its versatility. What’s appreciated above all is the singer’s commitment to celebrating the various facets of blackness and detailing why black culture needs to be celebrated on a global scale.

Beyoncé’s Love And Respect For HBCUs

#Beychella — which spanned two consecutive weekends of Coachella’s annual festival — was inspired by elements of HBCU homecomings, so it was no surprise when the singer revealed she always wanted to attend one. “I grew up in Houston, Texas visiting Prairie View. We rehearsed at TSU [Texas Southern University] for many years in Third Ward, and I always dreamed of going to an HBCU. My college was Destiny's Child. My college was traveling around the world and life was my teacher.” Brief vignettes in the film showcased marching bands, drumlines and the majorettes from notable HBCUs that comprise of the black homecoming experience. In the concert flick, one of the dancers affectionately states, “Homecoming for an HBCU is the Super Bowl. It is the Coachella.” However, beyond the outfits that sport a direct resemblance to Greek organizations, Beyoncé communicated an important message that remains a focal point in the film: “There is something incredibly important about the HBCU experience that must be celebrated and protected.”

The Familiar Faces

Despite being joined by hundreds of dancers, musicians and singers on-stage, the entertainer was joined by some familiar faces to share the monumental moment with her. While making a minor appearance in the documentary, her husband and rapper/mogul Jay-Z came out to perform “Deja Vu” with his wife. Next, fans were blessed by the best trio to ever do it as Kelly and Michelle joined the singer with renditions of their hit singles including “Say My Name,” “Soldier,” and more. On top of this star-studded list, Solange Knowles graced the “Beychella” stage and playfully danced with her older sister to the infectious “Get Me Bodied.”

Her Balance Of Being A Mother And A Star

Originally slated to headline the annual festival in 2017, the singer notes that she “got pregnant unexpectedly...and it ended up being twins.” Suffering from preeclampsia, high blood pressure, toxemia and undergoing an emergency C-section, the entertainer candidly details how difficult it was adjusting post-partum and how she had to reconnect with her body after experiencing a traumatizing delivery. “In the beginning, it was so many muscle spasms. Just, internally, my body was not connected. My body was not there.” Rehearsing for a total of 8 months, the singer sacrificed quality time with her children in order to nail the technical elements that came with the preparation for her Coachella set. “I’m limiting myself to no bread, no carbs, no sugar, no dairy, no meat, no fish, no alcohol … and I’m hungry.” Somehow, throughout all of this, she still had to be a mom. “My mind wanted to be with my children,” she says. Perhaps one of the most admirable moments in the film was witnessing Beyoncé’s dedication to her family but also to her craft.

The Wise Words From Black Visionaries

Homecoming opens with a quote from the late, Maya Angelou stating, “If you surrender to the air, you can ride it.” The film includes rich and prophetic quotes from the likes of Alice Walker, Nina Simone, Toni Morrison, and notable Black thinkers, reaffirming Beyoncé’s decision to highlight black culture. The quotes speak to her womanhood and the entertainer’s undeniable strength as a black woman.

Blue Ivy’s Cuteness

Last, but certainly not least, Blue Ivy‘s appearance in the concert film is nothing short of precious. One of the special moments in the documentary zeroes in on the 7-year-old singing to a group of people whilst Beyoncé sweetly feeds the lyrics into her ears. After finishing, Blue says: “I wanna do that again” with Beyoncé replying with “You wanna be like mommy, huh?” Seen throughout Homecoming rehearsing and mirroring Beyoncé’s moves, Blue just might follow in her mother’s footsteps as she gets older.
