Will Smith is preparing for a musical comeback, according to a new report.

Producer La Mar “Mars” Edwards confirmed he is working with “Big Willie” on a new record.

“We’re working on Will Smith, bringing him back,” the producer, who has worked with the Game and T.I. told hip hop magazine XXL. “That’s actually him on the other line right now. Snoop’s daughter, we just put out her first single. We’re doing the whole album. Mario wants me to do a mixtape with him, we’re working on that. I’m working on Ashanti. We’re just working on as much as possible.”

No further tidbits about Will’s return to the rap world were dropped.

Will’s last album, his fifth artist LP, “Lost and Found,” was released in 2005. Will’s big hits over the years included “Getting’ Jiggy Wit It,” “Miami” and “Parents Just Don’t Understand.”

The star is currently working on the next “Men In Black III,” which is due for release in 2012.

Chuck Taylor shares that he’s been thinking about making moves to a different label.

Game has revealed that he is considering signing with Cash Money Records after his Interscope Records contract is fulfilled. With only one more album left on the plate following the August 23rd release of R.E.D. Album, the Compton, California native explains that he plans on abandoning Interscope and signing with the house that Birdman and Slim built.

“We been playing with the idea of going over to Cash Money or trying to marry that and Black Wall Street,” he told XXLMag.com. “So, we’ll figure it out before the end of the day. I definitely think that’s where I’ll probably end up. Cause they winning, they want to win and I been winning and want to continue to win.”

Game, who explained that his relationship with Birdman dates back to before he dropped his debut The Documentary, has collaborated with Cash Money’s Lil Wayne several times throughout his career. On an unreleased track from R.E.D. Album titled “All I Know,” Chuck Taylor speaks on the label proposal.

Game’s Alleged Gang Ties Raises Red Flag For Customs

2006 American Music Awards - Arrivals

Some days ago, West Coast rapper Game (born Charles Louboutin) was detained in Canada for several hours until he was deported back to the U.S.

Apparently Game’s love for the street gang Bloods raised a red flag for Canadian Customs. The Hate It Or Love It rapper definitely reps red to the fullest. In fact, his new moniker is inspired by the Red Bottom Man himself, Christian Louboutin.

According to TMZ, a rep from the promotion company behind the tour, Substance Entertainment Group, stated that the tour promoter got a call from Canadian Customs while the Red Nation rapper was on the plane.

The rep went on to explain that customs informed the promoter that Game would be denied entry upon arrival ”due to new information received that Game is affiliated with organized crime and is an active member of the Bloods street gang.”


The Canadian promoter claims that they were hit unexpectedly with this news because concert organizers had secured all permits and received approval a week prior to his arrival.

Apparently, Game is not the only rapper try to cut through red tape to resolve legal issues with customs. In December 2010, Cam’ron and protege Vado was denied entry into Montreal, Canada because of prior felony convictions.

Game Defends Shyne Dissing 50 Cent

Posted: Friday – April 23, 2010

Has anyone ever had that girlfriend/boyfriend that just wouldn’t get over the past and continue to bring up, even years down the line?

With Shyne’s recent attack on 50 Cent and Game attempting to deliver a knockout on “400 Bars”, it is evident that these two rappers still have some sort of fixation with the G-Unit general.

There’s such an enormous amount of hate, one would think that 50 got their baby’s mothers pregnant or something. After awhile, the relentless dissing just sounds like a mosquito that keeps buzzing around a person’s ear…annoying.

During an interview with VIBE, the leader of the G-Unot campaign spoke on Shyne’s attack on his former labelmate.

“That’s him man [with the beef], and I’m glad he can take that 50 Cent beef with him. I’m slowly but surely phasing it out, and I might poke a little fun here and there but for the most part I’m over it.”

So, is there like a 12 step program or a detox to get 50 Cent out of a person’s system?

He also commented on Shyne’s “bumpy” return to rap.

“I’m sure he’s rough around the edges. It’s kinda like if Kobe [Bryant] just decides to sit it down, and you come back out your first three, it’s probably gonna be an airball, you know? You just gotta give him a little room, a little space, let him breathe and I’m sure you’ll get the old Shyne back.”

Making the comparison to Kobe might have been a little over the top and it might be better to just call it Michael Jordan when he returned and moved to the Wizards.

Man, what if they were to team up and go at 50? I don’t know about you, but a diss the length of a sitcom would surely only make them both come off a little questionable if all these bars are for one man.

Rappers, spending so much time holding a grudge for years can’t be beneficial health wise. What’s done is done, so move on.
