Game seemingly at random dissed Meek Mill on “92 Bars” last week before Game revealed why: Meek and Sean Kingston allegedly accused Game’s crew of stealing jewelry from Kingston, then ratted his entourage out to police. That caused Sean Kingston to comeback with a slew of videos calling Game a “stripper,” then Meek — with Beanie Sigel by his side — responded. Today, though, Jayceon took to the same beat Meek and Beans used to respond to his original claims — Young M.A’s “OOOUUU” — to offer more harsh words toward the two. On “Pest Control,” Game said Beanie should’ve

It appears that Tyga has found himself in the middle of the tug of war between Lil Wayne and Birdman. TMZ reports that Lil Wayne is less than pleased that Baby let Tyga out of his contract with Young Money Records without first consulting him. Given that Weezy is founding partner and 49% owner at Young Money, he allegedly felt that at minimum, his signature was needed for Tyga to be dropped. Weezy would have reportedly vetoed the move, if he had been consulted and Tyga would probably still be on the Young Money roster. Following his split from Young

Wiz Khalifa is demanding that his former manager’s $2 million lawsuit against him be thrown out of court, according to theJasmineBRAND.com.
