The Game Responds To 50 Cent's Thoughts On His Photo With Lloyd Banks

The two MC's seem to be at odds again.

On Wednesday (Feb. 17), The Game posted a bevy of photos to his Instagram account highlighting his trip to Dubai. But one photo made headlines not because of his activities in the Middle Eastern country, but because of the other person who was featured in the image.

After an extensive rift with G-Unit, it appears that The Game and Lloyd Banks placed their differences aside and snapped a photo for the 'gram together. The Game simply captioned the image with "Still," but someone else has a few more words to add to the occurrence.

Still.

50 Cent reportedly took to his social media account to share his thoughts on the matter. On the now deleted post, the Queens native wrote, "What do you see when you look at this picture? I see confusion, I'm not sure if it's just me, I'm a Cancer sh*t don't get old with me."

The Game caught wind of Fifty's response, and decided to post his own thoughts. The "100" rapper said once he learned that Banks was also in Dubai, he reached out to him to meet up. "It's been 11 years since I seen banks & the funny thing is, I told myself.. When I got there I was going to go off his energy... & when we seen each other, it was instantly all good energy."

He later turned his attention to Fifty, writing, "As for me & you "50" ... Our past has proven we could both get on some gangsta sh*t if need be, being that lives have been lost on both sides....." he stated. "If you choose to ignore the GROWN MAN approach & continue to harbor HATE for me & my side... That's your decision. I can't speak for Banks, but my pride was swallowed last night along with a shot of Hennesey in that club......"

In response to "50"....... When I heard banks was in Dubai, I told my niggas, "we're goin thru to holla".... My team thought I was on some bullshit & thought we was going thru to kick off some bullshit... I then told them, "Naw, we ain't on that... We on the other side of the world enjoying ourselves, 1/2 y'all ain't never even left LA... So we gone go thru, show banks party love & im going to personally let him know that me & him are đź’Ż... It's been 11 years since I seen banks & the funny thing is, I told myself.. When I got there I was going to go off his energy... & when we seen each other, it was instantly all good energy, so we chopped it.. threw back a few dranks & took a flick for old times sake to kill the negativity & tension that had once tore one of the GREATEST RAP GROUPS ever apart !!! At some point, you gotta be a MAN about certain situations so last night that's what I decided to do.. It was MY DECISION !!! Whether Buck, gone admit it or not... I talk to that nigga all the time.. As recent as few months ago when I was in Nashville & it was all love.... Don't front now my nigga... This is ME !!! As for me & you "50"... Our past has proven we could both get on some gangsta shit if need be, being that lives have been lost on both sides..... Lives have been taken from friends, & fathers taken from kids.. Which could've easily been MY LIFE or YOURS..... If you choose to ignore the GROWN MAN approach & continue to harbor HATE for me & my side... That's your decision. I can't speak for Banks, but my pride was swallowed last night along with a shot of Hennesey in that club...... Whatever it's gone be is what it's gone be, I said my peace #HateItOrLoveIt

Rihanna Is Suing Her Father

Rihanna has had enough. Riri is reportedly suing her dad, Ronald Fenty, for using the Fenty brand to launch a talent agency and solicit money without her permission, TMZ reports.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the ANTI singer claims her father launched a talent development company in 2017 called Fenty Entertainment. The problem – Rih trademarked "Fenty" years ago so that she could use it for her blossoming businesses.

The lawsuit claims Ronald is profiting from the reputation that was already created with Fenty Beauty and her apparel lines. Additionally, the docs allege that her dad falsely advertised themselves as her reps to solicit millions from fans.

The entrepreneur claims that her dad made $15 million in false bookings for shows throughout Latin America and attempted to trademark "Fenty" to use with resort boutique hotels.

While it may seem extreme to file a lawsuit against her own bloodline, Rih reportedly sent multiple cease and desist letters to him before she was forced to take full legal action.

Rihanna is asking a judge to place an injunction on Ronald using the name Fenty and to compensate her for the damages.

VA Basketball Referee Banned After Inspecting 10-Year-Old Girl's Braids

A white, basketball referee has been banned from officiating children's games in a Virginia City after he reportedly singled out and publicly inspected a 10-year-old black girl's braided hairstyle on Saturday (Jan. 12), WAVY-TV reports.

The young girl was reportedly wearing braids with blue extensions during the basketball game. Erica Guerrier, the mother of the young girl and coach of the team, said the referee mistakenly stated that hair weaves and braids are against the rules. Guerrier claimed the ref then made a "spectacle" out of her daughter during the game.

"At the end of the day, they're 9 and 10, so why does it even matter?" she told WAVY-TV.

Following the incident, Virginia High School League Executive Director Billy Haun said that the referee should not have raised concerns publicly.  Hampton Roads Basketball Association commissioner Rick Ennis announced that the ref is under investigation and is banned from officiating future games in the Chesapeake, VA area. In addition, Guerrier said that she would like the ref to apologize to her daughter for the embarrassment.

This isn't the first incident to occur at a sports event involving a black player's hair. A New Jersey high school referee received backlash after chopping off a black wrestler's dreadlocks in front of the entire school prior to his match. The ref was fired following public outrage.

Guerrier hopes her daughter's incident will be a lesson for other refs.  "I'm hoping that if the refs can get more education, more training, than we can see a decrease in these issues," she said.
