Although it’s been nearly two month since The Game revealed the cover to his fifth album Jesus Piece, controversy over his artful touch continues to roll in. The album, which officially dropped five days ago, became food for criticism for Michelle Malkin, a conservative commentator on Fox News. And then all Twitter hell broke loose.
It all started when Malkin posted the album cover to her website with a link that read “see the blasphemously “dope” album cover here.” Her comments did not sit well with Game, who backfired with a tweet that read “She’s racist, & makin racial & blasphemist comments about my album.” The passionate words ignited a Twitter back-and-forth in which the rapper urged his followers to boycott Fox News. The public exchange got so heated that Games’ fans jumped into the fight, sending Malkin angry tweets and even death threats. “Aw, what’s wrong — is your trashy album not selling?” she tweeted to Game. “Not afraid of you or your race-baiting misogynist gangstas.”
Game spoke to DJ Skee thereafter to defend his album and his comments. Watch the entire interview after the jump…
