Tag Archive: The Game


As you may know MMA fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson starred in the big-screen adaption of The A-Team this summer, although it was to the dismay of rapper “The Game.”

Both tried out for the role of B.A. Baracus, formerly played by Mr. T, and Rampage was selected. Game didn’t take to this kindly, and had a few words of constructive criticism for the wrestler.

“He couldn’t f*** with me. No disrespect to Rampage, but my dude Rashad Evans whupped that a**,” Game said. “When he had that UFC fight against Rashad Evans and he lost, I felt like that was me [winning]. ‘Don’t you know n****? I play Mr. T better than you! I pity the fool! I went in there [the audition] and I killed the Mr. T role on my screen test.”

Of course being an aggressive person by nature and profession, Jackson retaliated. “He totally disrespected me and stuff. So I told The Game: ‘Look here Game, we could have an act off where you play the role of B.A.; then we can have a rap off where you rap and I rap; then let’s get in the cage and have a sparring match, let’s see who’ll win.’ I told the Game that and he shut up talking. No response, it’s like crickets for real.”

This could get interesting, or it could die down within the next couple of days as 99% of these disputes usually do. Either way A-Team has grossed over $76 million to date, so I doubt the producers have any regrets about their decision.

Check out The Sporting Rave on Twitter and Facebook, if you’re into that kinda thing.

The new big three, aka LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade, have already been at the center of attention in the sports world for the past week, and now tales of their companionship is venturing out into the music industry.

Rapper ‘The Game’ has released a new song called “M.I.A.,” and as of now that is the only known reference to the Miami Heat’s terrific threesome.

The lyrics go “I keep three heats on me, 45, Glock, and the gauge, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and D-Wade. Any n**** try to stunt, get sprayed.”

So yeah, not the deepest or most thoughtful lyrics you’ve ever heard, but nonetheless it’s always interesting to see sports references in music. I’m just waiting for the first “The Decision” reference. Wouldn’t surprise me if it came from the Bloodhound Gang.
