Game Talks Rick Ross, Funkmaster Flex & The Marines, David Banner & 9th Wonder
Compton, California rap star Game took offense to Miami rapper Rick Ross' song "B.M.F. (Blowin Money Fast)" in the latest issue of Complex Magazine.
In the interview, Game seems to take offense to Rick Ross' glamorization of Black Mafia Family gang leader Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory and Gangster Disciples' founder, Larry Hoover. While Game rarely hides his own affiliation with The Bloods street gang, he stated that he didn't want to lead his fans in the wrong direction. "All these people thinking they're gangsta. And after the Rick Ross song B.M.F. everybody thinking they're Big Meech again, Larry Hoover. Nobody really should wanna be that or aspire to be that 'cause you're gonna end up in a coffin," Game told Complex. "And trust me man, most of these rappers outside of me, 50 Cent and maybe Waka Flocka and a few others, have never felt bullets man, ain't never had a brush with actually having your life erased. So a lot of these rappers out here playing. That's just not the message I'm trying to send across no more."
Funkmaster Flex is teaming with The United States Marine Corp to build and customize a 1968, Chevy Chevelle. Flex has teamed with The Marines to promote its recruiting efforts, in addition to showing a human side of the Marines. Flex and company will re-create the 1968 Chevy Chevelle from inception on paper, to finished product, which will be displayed in The Marines' booth on Funk Flex's Custom Car & Bike Show Tour. The build out will be featured on Funkmaster Flex's show on MTV2, Funk Flex's Full Throttle, which airs on Sunday mornings.

The duo will release their next single "Be With You" featuring Ludacris, which will also be accompanied by a video. "If rap music was a woman, she would be locked in a basement deprived of love. Death of a Pop Star is her first attempt at sex in a long time and its going to be Tantric," David Banner said in a statement. According to representatives for David Banner and 9th Wonder, Death of A Pop Star will hit stores November 9th.
