“I flaked on the video,” Game said of the track, which features Lil Wayne and Birdman. “Bird was like, ‘Listen, daddy, you can come down here. Junior is gonna turn himself in next Wednesday. You can come down here. We can shoot the video before Junior go in. You just have that in the safe.’ I blew it. I didn’t make it down. Once he went to jail, I was like, ‘I can’t use this.’ I didn’t want to save it, so I gave it away. That was like, ‘Single!’ ”
So what was so important that he couldn’t make it to Miami for his own video? He was finishing up tracks with the most successful hip-hop producer in the world.
“I think I was in with Dr. Dre. I couldn’t move,” he thought back. “I think we was finishing up his records. When Dre is mixing, you don’t leave. You gotta stay posted. But I couldn’t move. So I gave it away. Fans appreciate it, though.” – MTV
What do you think about this ❓ Would you of liked to see a video for “Everything Red” ❓ Do you think Game was right to miss the video shoot to be in the studio with Dre ❓
In other news, Drake revealed a special version of his “Light Up” track with Jay-Z and Weezy to Rap-Up yesterday: “Drake reveals a special version of his Jay-Z-assisted track “Light Up” on which Lil Wayne spits a hard verse “live from Rikers” over a non-mixed, raw-sounding beat.” I can’t wait to hear this… if we ever will!
And in more news, Eminem spoke to Skyrock Radio in Paris over the weekend and mentioned Tunechi: “I’ve always respected what Wayne does, and Lil Wayne, to me, is definitely one of the greatest in the game right now”. I think we can all agree with what Shady said.
