Just days after his unlikely arrest in LAX, Kanye West and road manager Don Crowley have been released on $20,000 bond. Their arrest came from an altercation with a photographer, upon which both Kanye and Don broke the photgrapher’s camera – and TMZ.com caught all of the action on video. Though we’re not really used to seeing this side of Kanye – I think everyone can agree it’s some BS that he was actually arrested. According to Ye’s Blog, he’s “cool with the papparazzi, but this guy was not cool.” Rehardless, look for new music from Kanye’s new album – 808′s and Heartbreak.

Turns out our boy Kanye got himself arrested at LAX airport today after a little altercation with a pap who had got a lil too close the Love Lockdown rapper. TMZ were also in the area and they too started to film Kanye’s lil tirade and got into a further altercation with the rappers assistant. Both Kanye and his assistant were booked and allegedy charged with vandalism. All this excitement a year to the day since he went head to head with 50. kanye

In 2006, rapper The Game released his second LP – The Doctor’s Advocate. Two years, one four-month trip to prison and countless struggles with estranged supporters Dr. Dre and 50 Cent later, The Game has dropped LAX. Hopping on the ubiquitous popular rapper manifesto, Game said this album would be his last, because he supposedly has nothing left to prove.

However, the album – a 19-track feature-heavy compilation – is definitely not a high note for Game to leave off on.

The album starts with a prayer from rap’s new preacher DMX, and just as quickly as you can press next, Game brings you the somber and boring “LAX Files.” A few skippable tracks later, Lil’ Wayne lends a T-Wayne singing feature to his West Coast cohort on “My Life.”

Ultimately, this album is marred by poor production and boring lyricism by Game, save for a few tracks like “Dope Boys,” “Cali Sunshine” and “Angel.” On “Angel,” Game scores Kanye production and a Common feature for a cliché yet catchy ode to their leading lady – hip-hop.

In previous albums, listeners looked forward to an entire album of hearing The Game’s witty lyricism and knocking production picks – no matter how vulgar or hard it got – because they knew what to expect. But on LAX, The Game enlists so many features (there are only three solo songs!) that any message he was trying to get across gets far too diluted and commercialized.

If this truly is his last album – he better not expect to be mentioned in the same breath as Pac, Biggie and Jay-Z…or even Wheezy baby.

The Game demolished the first week sales of his enemies in G-Unit by moving an impressive 238,382 albums. According to Nielsen Soundscan, The Game’s L.A.X. debuted at the No. 2 spot on this week’s Billboard 200. Metal group SlipKnot’s album All Hope Is Gone actually took the #1 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 Album’s chart, beating L.A.X. out by only 1,134 units.  There was an error with the Soundscan numbers earlier this week that put the Compton MC at the #1 spot.

He might have been reaching out to all those rappers he has had words for over the last few years in NYC the other night as he took to the stage at the Irving Plaze, but perhaps Game needed to deal with mending bridges a little closer to home. Stemming from an altercation at a family funeral with his cousin back in July, the rapper now faces charges of criminal battery which could see him back in jail due to currently being on probation for a firearms charge brought against him.

Game and his cousin got into an altercation which saw the LAX rapper punch Robert ‘Kirky’ Kirkwood in the face at the funeral of his sister. Game had allegedly offered to help the family pay for the funeral but had avoided footing the bill when it needed to be paid.

Sources close to Game hope that the family members will rectify the issue and the charges will be dropped.

OK a good friend of mine sent me this, not sure where it came from but had to post it as it made a Monday morning seem a little brighter when I read it. This list people is just who Game allegedly mentions on his up and coming album LAX. We all know he likes to name drop from time to time, but if this is a bona fide list, dude isn’t leaving much room for any other  words. Shocked he doesn’t mention Banks, Yayo or Vida thoughGame
