Moving Monday. We're moving non-stop to get the week started, going first with 2 Chainz joining Jay-Z's 40/40 Club? Well, not quite. Staying on the topic of tall rappers, did Game get down and dirty with one of Drake's ex-girlfriends? And it was all a celebration in Miami courtesy of Lil Wayne, Diddy, Kanye West and a handful of others. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. The 40/40 Club

We all get old but could 2 Chainz really be a bit older than we all thought? It's no secret that he's been grinding it out for a few years but is he well past the age of 40? Even saying he's in his late 30's was pretty surprising, but claiming he's rapping as a 42 year-old? Media Take Out has the fact-checker out on this:


November 26, 2012: spoke to a record exec who told us that rapper 2 Chainz . . . is really 42 years old. Tells the insider, "He doesn't want people to know how old he is . . . but he's one of the oldest rappers in the game." Wow . . . if 2Chainz can be THIS good in his mid-40s . . . maybe MORE old dudes need to get in the game. (Media Take Out)

When you think about it, is there really any issue here? Some of the hottest rappers are in their 40's, look at Eminem, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, Diddy, Fat Joe, you name it. But could this put a damper on any record sales? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Sleeping W/ The Game

Isn't Game married with kids? Well, looks like he had some dicey words for Sean Kingston over a certain lady in his life. How appropriate is it that Game would use his "Stripper" track to talk about, what else, a stripper named Maliah Michele? All Hip Hop Rumors has the rundown:

For someone who posts pictures of themselves going to church ever Sunday on Instagran, this isn't very Christian-like of Game. The West Coast rapper has released yet another diss song - this time aimed at teenage singer, Sean Kingston. But what does Game have against a popcorn singer who clearly shouldn't even be on his radar? Well, it's over a girl, of course! Sean Kingston is currently dating Drake's ex, stripper-turned-video vixen, Maliah. Kingston has taken Maliah to numerous red carpet events, and the two are said to be hot and heavy, with Kingston even professing his love to her. The Game is not very happy with that, because according to him, he has slept with Maliah as well! Even though the Game is engaged and starring in a reality show called "Marrying The Game" with his fiance and his children, he still is a little peeved about Maliah dating Kingston. Wow, Game went in! Did Sean Kingston really deserve that? In a recent tweet, Game said that the song, which is titled "Stripper" featuring Wale, was suppose to be on his upcoming album, Jesus Piece, but it didn't make it " because some old fart wouldn't clear the sample ha ha ha.... All good, enjoy the FREE music." (All Hip Hop Rumors)

Could Game be using his old tactic of name-dropping to garner some attention and have people interested in his new LP? Seems like a desperation move on his part. But the real question is was it to sell records or get more people to watch "Marrying the Game?" #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. It's A Party

If there was ever a place every club-going person should go to, it's got to be Miami. They've got a new baseball team, a championship-winning Miami Heat basketball team, beautiful beaches and tons of hip-hop stars walking the streets night and night. TMZ has a snapshot of a huge hip-hop gathering over the weekend:


Lil Wayne returned to the Miami club scene last night ... with some of the most powerful people in the rap game ... including Diddy and Kanye West ... and TMZ has the pic. It all went down at LIV nightclub inside the Fontainebleau Hotel ... where Weezy and Co. spent the end of their Thanksgiving weekend partying their faces off with the likes of Busta Rhymes, Fat Joe, DJ Khaled, Timberland, Ace Hood and French Montana. We're told the guys were all celebrating DJ Khaled's birthday. Wonder who got him the nicest gift? (TMZ)

DJ Khaled is known for packing some pretty hot compilation albums, but to the caliber of this many rap stars coming out and showing support? How deep do his connections go? Looks like he's got a strong supporting cast in the rap game. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
