The Game Uses Controversial Lyrics to Rap About Sex With Kim Kardashian
UPDATE: On Fri., Jan. 25, another video from Game's listening session surfaced, and in the clip, we can hear the rapper referencing Kim Kardashian-West's sister Kylie Jenner.
“Her sister made a billion in makeup/I used to make her frosted flakes when she wakes up,” he rapped in the clip.
The Game just previewed a new song that's sure to cause some controversy.
Late last night (Jan. 24), Eric Bellinger's personal assistant uploaded videos of the Compton, Calif. rapper previewing a new tune in which he graphically describes violent sex with Kanye West's wife Kim Kardashian-West.
On the song, Game raps, “I held Kim Kardashian by her throat nigga/I made her swallow my kids until she choked nigga/I should apologize, 'cause 'Ye my folks nigga/This for all my Vicelords and locs, nigga."
Violently sexual lyrics are nothing new in hip-hop, but when examined through the lens of the #MeToo movement, it's no longer possible to look at them in a vacuum. For The Game this is especially true.
The Game's incendiary new lyrics come just over two years after a judge found him liable for damages in a sexual assault lawsuit filed by reality TV star Priscilla Rainey. Rainey alleged that Game sexually assaulted her on the set of VH1's She's Got Game. Given that outcome, it should be noted that Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly docuseries, which focuses on two decades' worth of abuse allegations leveled against R. Kelly, is also very much in the national discussion three weeks after its premiere.
With all of this background in mind, did The Game go too far? That's a question that people will likely try to answer going forward.
