The Game has been pumping out albums since 2005’s The Documentary. Needless to say, his experience in the music industry runs deep. On Tuesday (February 25), the veteran rapper hopped on Twitter to let his one million followers know the internet is to blame for pushing subpar music on the masses.

“The internet forces you to listen to wack ass music,” he wrote. “It’s so much of it, you’re brainwashed to thinkin the shit actually sound like sumn.”

Reactions to The Game’s post varied, although most of his commenters seemed to support his sentiments.

An Australian fan wrote, “Mate what has happened to US rap tho. Old school all the way,” while another woman wrote, “Couldnt agree more and not to mention all these mumble rappers.”

Is he right?

Pop Smoke’s “Dior” has debuted at No. 49 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his first solo track to earn a spot on the chart. The late rapper previously earned a Hot 100 entry with “GATTI,” a collaboration with Travis Scott from last year’s JACKBOYS compilation.

The Brooklyn-bred artist was shot and killed during a home invasion in Los Angeles on February 19. According to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, streams of the slain rapper’s music experienced a 392 percent increase following his death.

Pop Smoke racked up 24.7 million on-demand streams in the U.S. on the day of his passing. “Dior” alone pulled in 5.2 million streams.

“Dior” set a new career peak on the Hot 100 for Pop Smoke, who had reached No. 69 with “GATTI.” The single originally appeared on his debut mixtape Meet The Woo, which was released in 2019.

The song was also featured as a bonus cut on his follow-up Meet The Woo 2, which dropped just a few weeks before he was killed.

Pop Smoke was 20 years old. No suspects have been arrested as police continue to investigate his murder.

DaBaby Reportedly Settles Extortion Lawsuit With Model

DaBaby has reportedly put one of his legal battles to bed. According to The Blast, the Interscope Records artist has settled a lawsuit against a model he accused of extorting him.

Defendant Marjorie Guaracho was one of the models hired to be in the background of DaBaby’s “VIBEZ” video, which was filmed last September. After the visuals were released in October, Guaracho sent a cease and desist letter to Interscope claiming her likeness in the video was stolen and accusing DaBaby of making it look like she “endorses pornography.”

She also sought damages, which she estimated to be in excess of $75,000.

DaBaby fired back by suing Guaracho, asserting she and 40 other models were informed of the video’s concept prior to the shoot and signed a release to be in it. According to him, she was paid $100 for being featured in the visuals for less than two seconds. He sought an unspecified amount of damages in his suit.

As part of the settlement, Guaracho has agreed DaBaby owns the right to use her image in the “VIBEZ” video.

“The essence of the settlement is that the Plaintiffs have full and complete rights with respect to Plaintiff’s image and likeness in connection with the video entitled ‘Vibez,’” the court documents read. “One of the conditions to the settlement is the entry of an order confirming the settlement, acknowledging the Plaintiffs possess all of the Defendant’s rights with respect to the Video.”

No monetary details of the agreement have been revealed, but The Blast reports the judge hasn’t signed off on the settlement yet.
