Apparently, the rapper had agreed to headline at the festival and was paid $35,000 in advance. Yet the day of, the L.A. rapper did a no show for his set after he found out that he had been bumped down from the headliner spot.
According to Courthouse News, the game was wired a deposit before the show. Although, he didn’t show the rapper did not pay the amount back.
The promotion company received a call from The Game’s manager on the day of and said that “The Game would not be performing unless he was headlining the event.”
Would you pick your Pride over the money or should he have behaved differently and did his part?

President Obama’s credit card was rejected at a New York restaurant last month, while he was visiting the United Nations.
“It turned out I guess I don’t use it enough –so they thought there was fraud going on. Fortunately, Michelle had hers,” Obama said at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on Friday.
“I was trying to explain to the waitress, ‘No really, I think that I’ve, uh, been paying my bills.’ So even I’m affected by this,” he added.
Obama narrated the story as he signed an executive order on identity theft.
The order commands chip-and-pin technology on federal government credit and debit cards. It also provides new and improved help for victims of identity theft and finally, it works with businesses to encourage more identity theft prevention measures.
What is your opinion on the story? Should his credit card have been declined? And do you truly believe that the new executive order will make a difference in Identity Theft?
If you have been keeping up with the Michael Brown shooting which happened in Ferguson, Missouri, you will find interest in this.
In the wake of the shooting, The Game has recruited a group of 10 rappers and four R&B artists. As they come together they protest on a musical Molotov “Don’t Shoot.”
The song by The Game features Diddy, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh and the R&B super-group TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank).
In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, The game says, “The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this.”
“I am a black man with kids of my own that I love more than anything, and I cannot fathom a horrific tragedy like Michael Brown’s happening to them,” he added. “This possibility has shaken me to my core. That is why this song must be made and why it was so easy for so many of my friends to come together and unite against the injustice.”
In a show of solidarity, the rappers on the track are a Pan-American show.
“I managed to get everyone on board fairly easy, simply because we have the hearts,” stated the game. “We care and are inclined to take a positive approach to resolving an issue that has existed since the beginning of mankind and that is racism and hatred towards one another as human beings.”
Listen to the song and purchase it on iTunes, the money raised from the track will go to the Justice for Mike Brown GoFundMe account.

As we have seen throughout the past couple of months, just about every celebrity has accepted the ALS ice bucket challenge and then continued to challenge their celebrity friends and family. 50 Cent on the other hand, decided to change the challenge.
The rapper challenged his not-so friend, Floyd Mayweather to read one page from a Harry Potter book without stopping, starting over or messing up. If Floyd accepts the challenge, Fifty said he would donate $750K to a charity of his choice.
As you’re probably imagining that this could be just for laughs, The Breakfast Club took this challenge to another level by airing an unreleased audio of Mayweather struggling to read some drops for the radio station.
Although, DJ Envy says this would take someone about 10 seconds to read, Floyd is heard repeatedly stopping and starting over as well as fumbling some of his words.
Watch the video of Fifty challenging Floyd, then listen to the audio released by The Breakfast Club.
Do you think that Floyd will accept the challenge or will he ignore it as if it never happened? What is your opinion?
