The game rapper on the dating game gay dating texas
MTV and VH1 owner Viacom is trying to have litigation filed against it by rapper The Game dismissed via a so called anti-SLAPP motion.
As previously reported, The Game – real name Jayceon Taylor – sued the media firm after losing a civil case for sexual assault last year, because the woman he sexually assaulted was a contestant on a reality show he made for VH1.
"This was the first single from Monkey Business and we didn't want any monkeying around," he added with a laugh, noting that the group had to endure five costume changes during the video's two-day shoot in Los Angeles.
At the moment, the group is hard at work putting the finishing touches on its new album, which will include collaborations with James Brown and John Legend (see "Black Eyed Peas Bring In Legends Galore For New LP").
"Obviously, those guys are very funny and they added their Malloy touch.
Just to see them take an idea that I came up with and take it to another level has been super-fresh.
Priscilla Rainey, a contestant on dating show ‘She’s Got Game’, said that during a date with the rapper – which she believed to be part of the contest, although it wasn’t – Taylor became “intoxicated” and “out of control” and inappropriately touched her buttocks and genital area several times.
She successfully sued over the incident and was awarded .1 million in damages last November.
He will, of course, also be enlisting help from his star-studded Rolodex.
"It would allow us to be us, but keep us as a group. Ap is [not included] vocally in the song, he still has an important role in the video." The group pitched the new idea to another director, but when that budget came in sky-high, they tapped the Malloys (Blink-182, Avril Lavigne), who directed their "Shut Up" video last year.
"We pitched them this idea and they fell in love with it," Will said.
“Relationships are hard," says Susan Levison, VH1's executive vice president of original programming and production.
“We can't wait to go on this adventure with The Game as he searches for the woman that could ultimately be his match.”Not all is well in The Game's world, however.
