Drake And The Game Donate $22,500 For Funeral Of Ohio Woman’s Partner And Children

Drake donates money for children's funeral

Drake may be the softest rapper in the game, but there’s something to be said for Wheelchair Jimmy’s heart of gold. Ohio woman Anna Angel was working her shift at the local Burger King when a blaze tore through her trailer home, killing her boyfriend and their five young children. Drake and fellow rapper The Game, who recently pledged $1 million to The Robin Hood Project, have promised to donate the full $22,5000 fee required for the funeral of Angel’s tragically lost family. Drake posted a picture of the family to his Instagram on Tuesday, writing alongside the photo, “Myself and @thedocumentary are donating a total of $22,500 to Ana Angel.. who lost her boyfriend & their 5 children in a house fire on behalf of @therobinhoodproject #therobinhoodproject … What @thedocumentary is doing will never be forgotten. Honored to be able to help people along side my brother.” Good work, boys. [Gossip Cop]

Remember that Michael Douglas movie “The Game,” where Michael Douglas’s loser brother Sean Penn gets him a ticket to “The Game” for his birthday, only “The Game” is some horrible, weird live-action adventure thing where he’s constantly chased and threatened, and ends up in a shack in Mexico? Yeah. I made everyone promise to never “The Game” me after I saw that.

I guess a guy named Adam Thick also saw “The Game,” but it inspired him to start a Genius Biz.com Idea: Extreme Kidnapping. Keep reading »

I just did my taxes last night and felt justified writing off my legitimate business expenses. Stuff like books I bought or taxis I took to and from work events. I’m very proud of how anal I am about saving every receipt. Apparently, a number of rappers such as The Game, Jim Jones, Bizzy Bone, Daz Dillinger and Lil’ Flip feel that their legitimate business expenses should include money spent at strip clubs. TMZ spoke to a few of the rappers crusading for the “make it rain” tax deduction. Their pleas to Uncle Sam after the jump. Keep reading »

“Whatever my friend Rihanna wants to do.  It’s whatever she wants to do. [To] forgive is a word that people need to rethink and actually figure out whether they can do that, or if they’re just saying that they can forgive and they actually can’t and don’t possess the power to do that. And [Rihanna] does, [and] I do, along with a lot of people I know do. You know we’re all human at the end of the day. This isn’t ‘hey, [I'm] sticking up for this person, or whatever.’ It’s not about that. It’s really about what I was taught as a kid. This is how I thought the world was supposed to work, you know. We want forgiveness when it’s us, but we don’t want forgiveness when it’s somebody else. It’s like you’re in a glass house and and you’re casting rocks out … You’re just shattering your own house because the same willingness you have to not forgive someone else, you have to understand that one day you’re going to have a child and that child may do something that you don’t sincerely approve of. But you have to start to understand that we are human and this is how it is.”

“Top Model” ["Pot Ledom"] All-Stars Go Viral

Watch Video

Last night’s episode of “Top Model” (or should I say “Pot Ledom”?) was “absolutely epic” to quote Amelia. The all-stars had to write, record, and make music videos to “go viral.” Best catch: they had to work the hook “Pot Ledom” (Top Model spelled backwards) into their songs. Another weird-as-s**t Tyra brainchild. Of course, Tyra  made an appearance in every video along with internet sensation Keenan Cahill (I somehow have no idea who he is). There were many deliciously cringe-worthy moments — like watching Alexandria Everett try to dance. Rapper The Game, who directed the videos, referred to her as the Tin Man. Okay, getting to the nugget of gold in the episode — because there is always a nugget in every “ANTM” episode. The Game, oddly enough, became obsessed with Allison Harvard, who wrote  an emotional and haunting song called “Underwater” about her deceased father. I’ll admit, I have been singing it all morning and annoying my co-workers. I just can’t stop! In judging panel, The Game called Allison (who obviously won best video) “the most weirdly beautiful person he’s ever met” and admitted to Tyra that he was attracted to her. It was just … wow. All these cycles and “Pot Ledom” never loses its appeal.

What did you think of Allison’s video? The other girls? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Mind Of Man: Pity The Pick-Up Artist

Some of you might have heard of or read Neil Strauss’ The Game, a fawning book about a silver tongued Casanova who goes by the mysterious code-name Mystery. Probably many more of you have seen ridiculously dressed beanpole Mystery tutor his homoerotic boy-cult on Vh1′s reality show “The Pick-Up Artist.” Is it just me or does he look like cross between a Las Vegas magician and a Dr. Seuss character? What you don’t know is if you know a guy who’s signed up for a class in picking up women (like New York’s “The Art of Charm”) or sloppily employed the social tools taught in these classes, written about in books, or demonstrated on television shows.

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of August 26th 2008

MUSIC

  • Solange Sol-AngeL and the Hadley St. Dreams
    Beyonce’s baby sister, Solange has finally stepped out of her sister’s shadow and made a record of her own. A jazzy, poppy collection of laments, it just doesn’t have the bitch slap of her sister’s dance tracks. From the sounds of songs like “Tony”, Solange has been whining behind the scenes for a while, broken-hearted, waiting to breakout. But just like most moaning for attention, who wants to listen?
