These days, the Game is sporting the red color as a promo tool for his upcoming R.E.D. Album. On his upcoming song Red Nation, Lil Wayne, who has a liking for the color red, brought the hook. MTV News hooked up with the Game on the set of his video shoot, and the Compton- born MC revealed how he got Weezy involved on this project.
“I called Wayne and I was like, ‘Yo I need you to kill this hook.’ He was like, ‘No problem,’ and he did his thing for me,” Game recalled.
The Game likes to record his guest artists’ material in the studios himself in his own presence, rather than receiving pre-recorded content through the internet or mail. However, he made an exemption for the Young Money boss. He explained that since Wayne was on the road for his ‘I Am Still Music’ tour and therefore it wasn’t feasible for him to meet the Game in his studio. Because both of them have worked together under one roof before he knew Wayne’s working style and was fully confident that the delivered material will be according to his liking.

The exhibition was staged a day after Nate was laid to rest, and even though it wasn’t a memorial for the former Death Row musician, it eventually turned out to be an event where his music was celebrated yet again when his long-time pal DJ Quik decided to play Nate-only music. The DJ/producer also introduced Nate’s song Nigel to the listeners and he rapped his father’s highly acclaimed record ‘Regulate’.

Rick Ross must have been disappointed after not being able to sign 2010’s breakout MC Wiz Khalifa, who rejected Ross-owned Maybach Music Group’s advances in favor of Atlantic Records. But as things turned out, the Miami MC isn’t complaining, after seeing his own prodigy ‘Wale’ shine.
Ross believes Wale’s potential is of the same level as of Kanye West and Yeezy, Wale also has an unorthodox style that could eventually make him as big of a star as West. In an interview with MTV, Ross boldly predicted that Wale is destined to emulate Kanye’s success one day.

Songs have impact; this impact often inspires other artists to make their own version of popular songs from the past. Sometimes, the audience gives a negative review of the revision—inspired, no doubt by some fond memory they have of the original. At other times, the cover version makes much bigger waves than the original; sometimes to the point that everyone forgets who initially sang it. With all of that in mind, we have compiled a short list of covers that ended up better than the originals. Continue reading Cover Songs That Beat the Originals »
