Another weekend, another Hip-Hop Financial Summit. Uncle Russy headed out to the Lone Star State to continue spreading his message of financial empowerment. I’m beginning to think that Chingo Bling’s sole purpose at these lectures is to hang out and wait for photo opportunities to pop off. Who knows, the Hot Tamale King of Texas may just have some actual knowledge to share.
Texas wasn’t the only playground for rappers over the weekend. In conjunction with the City of New York and the Entertainers Basketball Classic, VH1’s Celebrity Hoops basketball game went down yesterday at BK’s Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center. A group of new school rappers went head-to-head with some old school legends like Melle Mel, Luv Bug Starski and Grand Master Caz. While rappers like Maino and Remy Ma played nice, Jayceon and the Black Wall Street gang didn’t during a recent trip across the pond.
Game just can’t seem to keep his name out of headlines and rumor mills. Like the old saying goes, any promotion is good promotion. During a recent trip to the London, Game and members from Black Wall Street were involved in a brawl with 3 representatives from Slash TV. Judging from the video footage on YouTube, shit got crazy during a routine interview/ promo drop session. Check the clip out for yourself:
