Rapper Game has commented on his upcoming video for "Red Nation," which was banned from being aired on MTV and BET earlier this week.
According to Game, the album will be released through VEVO this Thursday (May 12th), in addition to the rapper's Twitter account and his official website, ComptonGame.com.
"No love is lost for BET and MTV" Game told AllHipHop.com in a press release. "I know they have standards for all ages watching the networks. I didn't want to change the artistic integrity of the music video and with the amount of people watching videos online, I know that all my fans will still be able to find it."
"Red Nation" is the first single from Game's highly anticipated studio release, R.E.D. Album, which is due in stores later this summer.
EA Sports has put together a 15 track soundtrack to get you ready to do battle in a 12-round throw down with their forthcoming Xbox 360 & PlayStation3 game, "Fight Night Champion."
The game, which is hitting stores across the U.S. on March 3rd, boasts some of today’s most talented Hip-Hop acts.
With music from Aloe Blacc, Black Milk, Chiddy Bang, Murs & 9th Wonder, N.E.R.D., The Roots, and Tinie Tempah, fans will only be able to hear the soundtrack in game.
Murs also took the time to speak about his latest project "Melrose" with Terrace Martin, his Paid Dues Festival and his thoughts on the new EA Sports "Fight Night Champion" video game.
Speaking on "The Problem Is" Ft. Sick Jacken (produced by 9th Wonder) Murs said: "the song has this energy, that makes you want to punch someone in the face."
Being the huge gamer that he is, Murs issued challenges to all other rappers, especially Tinie Tempah who accepted his offer to take it to the ring in "Fight Night Champion."
“Hey Murs listen bro, I’m gonna knock you out in the second round,” Tinie Tempah exclaimed via video.
A couple months ago Kanye West caught a bunch of hate for his video for Power which I don't know if i'd even consider that a Music Video, but now he's outdone himself again, The clip for his new song “Runaway”…will be a 40-minute dark video in Yeezy-speak) to go along with the track!
Ye' says “It’s the story of a phoenix fallen to Earth, and I make her my girlfriend, and people discriminate against her and eventually she has to burn herself alive and go back to her world,”
West also recently told New York Magazine:
“I’ve been feeling the idea of the phoenix,” he said. “It’s been in my heart for a while. It’s maybe parallel to my career. I threw a Molotov cocktail on my career last year, in a way, and I had to come back as a better person.”
Missed the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards last night? Well you didn't miss much....nah, j/k. The performances were probably the best they've been in a while on the VMA's. Eminem opened the show with "Not Afraid", as If he was in a nightclub performing, before walking out to a shiny stage with the L.A Skyline as his back drop. After Not Afraid, Rihanna came out wearing a white dress and all Red Hair to do "Love The Way You Lie" Host Chelsea Handler then is introduced, she cracked jokes on everyone from Lady Gaga to the Jersey Shore cast. Shortly after...performaces by Justin Bieber followed, Usher (who I thought was the best of the night) Drake, who came out with Mary J. Blige and Swizz Beats. And of course the"Elephant in the Room" as Chelsea Handler referred to him Kanye West closed the show with a Brand New song "Toast to the D-Bags". As far as winners go....Laga Gaga pretty much won every award, Eminem won for best Male Video and Best Hip Hop Video.
