Sunday, Jul 5, 2009 2:00PM
The Game recently spoke on his relationship with Chris Brown and updated fans on how the singer in light of the publicized domestic dispute with pop star Rihanna.
In addition to speaking on Chris Breezy, the Black Wall Street leader also discussed his initial difficulty in convincing him to appear on the "Better On The Other Side" Michael Jackson tribute song.
"They were really edgy about getting on it," Game explained in an interview. "I think [his managers] wanted Chris Brown's first look to be kind of strategically thought out, and I came so fast with the Michael Jackson tribute -- but we talked it over, and at the end of the day, they thought it was a good idea, so we went ahead and did it...He's like a little brother to me. I talk to him all the time, and I give him my support. You know, I'm no stranger to trials and tribulations in life, and the court system." (CNN)
New York-based rapper Maino discussed his thoughts on Brown recently and how he should be able to avoid any future criminal actions.
"My predictions are coming true, if you didn't know earlier in the year I predicted that Chris Browns and Rihanna's relationship would not make it to September and earlier this week, he got 5 year probation for the events that caused them to break up," he wrote via a blog posting. "I just want to say that he'll be all right, I don't see him getting into anymore trouble to violate the 5 years probation. [What] happens is they give your a** those 5 years and hope you mess up so they can give you state time. But, like i said earlier he will be all right I have friends that got 20 times worse, so that ain't nothing major. It's just a good feeling to see a lot of my predictions come true, knowing that I got a crystal ball lying aroundin my home and I can see everyone's future." (Global Grind)
Aside from receiving support from others including Suge Knight earlier this year, Brown has shown signs of returning to the spotlight via Game's tribute song.
"With nearly five minutes of footage, both The Game and Chris Brown are seen in various screen shots recording their tribute song in a studio. The West Coast emcee also appears to be getting a Michael Jackson tattoo and is seen in a bath tub with a bottle of liquor and note pad. Other shots include fans, kids and adults alike, wearing shirts with Jackson's face, dancing, smiling and keeping the singer's memory alive." (SOHH)
Breezy avoided jail time after appearing in a California courtroom late last month.
A plea deal has been reached in the assault case against Chris Brown, defense attorney Mark Geragos said in a hearing Monday. Under terms of the agreement, Brown will serve five years of probation. Los Angeles Criminal Court Judge Patricia Schnegg decided against allowing cameras into the courtroom during Rihanna's testimony, court spokesman Allan Parachini said. (Headline News)
