West Coast rapper Game recently discussed an admiration for his hometown Los Angeles Dodgers and why new co-owner Magic Johnson should consider displaying some team spirit with an LA-themed tattoo.
Known for his LA tat, Game said he could see the iconic retired NBA champion donning some facial ink.
"Yo, man. I was gonna recommend that Magic gets the same tattoo I have but just the blue star. I think that'd be so cool. I talked to [Dodgers star] Matt Kemp in the club a couple of weeks ago," Game said in an interview. "I even brought that up, that Magic should get a face tat. He was like, 'I don't know.' Hopefully, man. He's gonna see what he can do. I think it'd be dope. We'll see. It's Magic. Stars are affiliated with magic. Even at Disneyland, when Mickey wears the little magic hat, it's got stars on it. So what I'm saying is it might be a good look for Magic, man." (ESPN)
In late March, Johnson made headlines for helping purchase the cherished Dodgers team.
Magic Johnson and a group of similarly deep-pocketed investors were the winning bidders at an auction on Tuesday night to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers for a staggering $2.15 billion -- easily breaking previous records for the amount of money shelled out for a U.S. sports franchise. Racked by debt, the legendary Dodgers had been previously owned by Frank MCourt; McCourt will enter into a new venture with Johnson et al on the land surrounding the Dodgers stadium. (Us Magazine)
Last year, the platinum-selling rapper talked about Atlanta's Gucci Mane donning an ice cream tattoo.
"I seen Gucci's new face tat and as soon I did, I thought 'finally they can get off me about his butterfly/star/LA sh*t.' That's what I thought. But you know what man, I don't give a f*ck about what they say about anybody, a muthaf*cka could tattoo a butterfly, ice cream cone, apple pie on their cheek. Bottom-line, if you know Gucci, you know he's real. He been on trial for his life and all of that. He bodied people. So he could tattoo a f*ckin' tampon on his face for all I care. You can't say he's buster or whatever. And me I done been shot, stole sh*t, robbed people, everyth-f*ckin'-thing you can think of. Tattoos don't mean sh*t, they ain't nothing but good art." (VIBE)
Back in summer 2011, tattoo addict Machine Gun Kelly sat down with SOHH and opened up on facial ink.
"Nah dude, nah, no ice creams on my face," Kelly told SOHH referring to Gucci Mane's publicized face ink. "I'm trying to score those movie roles, man. I'm trying to be on the big screen like I'm f*cking Ronald Reagan, f*cking Harrison Ford. [laughs] I mean, hmmm... Tom Cruise. Leonardo DiCaprio. As soon as I lay the major movie role where I'm satisfied, like, never having to be in a movie again, I'm going to tattoo the sh*t out of my whole body." (SOHH)
