West Coast rapper Game has come under fire for his latest fashion statement: a bright, red mohawk.
Responding to criticism via Twitter, Game defended his new look.
“N!ggas hatin on the mohawk ha ha ha… I didn’t dye my sh!t for you Ms J azz n!ggas ! Let’s see how the women feel ???,” Game tweeted Tuesday (April 6).
“Don’t be mad my n!gga, Red mohawks & flipping fries @McDonalds just dont mix. Some n!ggas just cant pull it off……”
“It works when u walkin in the bank to deposit $100,000 though.”
“Somebody go dye they va-jay-jay RED. Then twitpic it, then I’ll know you serious ha ha ha” (Game’s Twitter)
A photo of Game’s new hairstyle appeared online Monday afternoon.
Let the promo begin. The leader of the “Red Nation,” Game, has dyed his hair red in honor of his upcoming R.E.D. Album. The West Coast rapper showed off his fiery red Mohawk courtesy of his barber, pictured. The first single from his album, the Lil Wayne-assisted “Red Nation,” is scheduled to hit iTunes on April 12 and a video will be shot tomorrow in Los Angeles. (Rap-Up)
Known for stirring up hype, Game recently discussed face tattoos and his butterfly ink job.
“I seen Gucci’s new face tat and as soon I did, I thought ‘finally they can get off me about this 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, icecream 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)
Last month, Game shared his insight on the state of hip-hop.
“I just think that every now and then in hip hop, there’s a dead space so we need some substance,” he tells Billboard.com’s The Juice. “I think that I just might be one of the last artists that really cares about hip hop and not rap, not the culture, not poppin’ bottles, not the cars, chains, broads, I just actually care about nurturing and giving back to this sort of foundation on which I grew up on, which is real hip-hop.” (Billboard)
