There are plenty of rappers I cannot stand. But topping that list might be The Game. After watching him dog his long-time girlfriend out, talk to and about women any kind of way, including some particularly disgusting musings on Erykah Badu, and instruct his entourage to push a woman off the stage when she refused to show him her breasts and spitting on another woman from his spot in VIP, I just have nothing left for him.
Suffice it to say, The Game does not like women, not really.
Still, every once in a while he’ll do something exclusively for the ladies. We all remember those d-ck pictures and the nasty hashtags that came with them. Being that I’m not a fan, I looked but was unfazed. And then when he persisted, I realized that this was more about thirst than it was about trying to do something nice for the women he’s so often belittled.
We shouldn’t be surprised really, The Game has shown us time and time again that he’s not really for us…even when he’s pretending to be.
It happened again.
Today, he posted this on his Instagram, account.
In a world full of insta-famous, 1/2 clothed, airbrush your skin app using, duck lip doing, poke my but out, find the right angle, selfie taking for attention, club hosting for scraps, 500k followers with no morals having women, you're lucky if you find her…. & if you do, crown her… for she is YOUR QUEEN. One time for the working class women, the single mothers grinding that 9-5 as well as the future, doctors, lawyers, teachers etc… who value their self worth & just finished finals & are glad to finally be on Christmas break cause they worked so hard this semester to get closer to achieving their dreams….. This ones for you 👑 #itsGottaFeelGoodToHaveACareerOtherThanWaistTrainingTeaDrinkinOrTeethWhitening 😂✌🏾️
Before he issues a compliment to one set of women, he takes the time to berate “the others,” calling out Insta-famous, 1/2 clothed, poke my butt out, selfie taking for attention women. And that’s the short version.
If I didn’t know any better I would swear The Game was talking about himself. Let’s just be honest, these days we know The Game more for his reality show shenanigans (He knew he had no intention of marrying that Tiffney.) his clapback game on social media and the pictures he posts of his penis print. That’s it. So the fact he wants to talk about half-clothed attention-seeking is laughable. Not to mention the fact that the little cartoon characters are also naked.
Then, he turns his attention to the “good women.” The lawyers and teachers who are educated and achieving their dreams. As if someone with a college degree just couldn’t be shallow, half naked and attention seeking.
But aside from that, there’s the fact that The Game himself had one of these so-called good ones. Tiffney Cambridge, his former fiancée and mother of his children, was a teacher herself. And taking her through season after season of a tv show where he only claimed he was going to marry her and allegations of abuse, The Game did anything but crown her.
All of this is yet another way men like to blow smoke up our a–es, so they can control us with these impossible-to-reach standards. The notion is that if we can check off all of the listed requirements then surely we’ll get the title, the ring, the crown or hell, maybe even something radical like respect. But ask Tiffney how that worked out for her…and she took it a step further by giving The Game two beautiful children.
And Tiffney is not the only one. Before her, there was Valeisha Butterfield, the daughter of a Congressman. Butterfield is a author activist and political strategist. She was voted one Essence’s top 40 executives under 40. And how did The Game treat her? None of us can really say but the two called off their engagement in 2006. The first of his three children was born during their relationship in 2003.
So, while over 90 thousand people liked this post and women were thanking him all up and down the comment section, I would advise y’all to beware of The Game and men like him who love to tell women how to live their lives, as if they’ve figured out the answer to be a good woman in this world.
Put some clothes on and figure out your own situation before you try to criticize and crown women through Instagram but not through action.
Update: And if you need any more evidence of his lunacy, check out how he responded to this very civil critique of his Instagram post.
VH1 has been winning in the reality TV game for quite some time now. Before “Love & Hip Hop” and “Basketball Wives,” series like “Flavor of Love” and “I Love New York” dominated the network’s programming. Thankfully, they’ll be returning to their dating game show roots this August. Earlier this year, we told you that “Marrying The Game” star Jayceon “The Game” Taylor would be returning to the network with a new series titled “She’s Got Game.” Similar to “Flavor of Love,” 10 contestants will be tasked with winning the heart of the 35-year-old rapper.
The network recently dropped a trailer for the series, which premieres August 10, and surprisingly, the engagement ring (or a replica of the ring) that once belonged to Taylor’s ex-fiancée, Tiffney Cambridge, makes a major cameo.
“I lost the best thing that ever happened to me,” Taylor says in the trailer while holding the ring. “But now, I think I’m ready to find that special someone.”
As you may recall, Taylor and Cambridge’s relationship issues were put on display for several seasons of “Marrying The Game” before they finally called off the engagement. So yeah, Taylor is now trying to recreate that magic with someone new.
It’s unclear if the contestants are simply competing for a chance to date the rapper, or if a marriage proposal is actually being offered. But what is clear is that VH1 is playing all types of games with this trailer!
Watch the sneak peek below and let us know your thoughts.

Since Tiffney can’t seem to marry The Game, perhaps his celebrity friends can set him up with women for another reality show on VH1. Sound too messy to be true? Well, it’s happening.
Just today, the network sent out a press release confirming the new one-hour weekly series starring The Game as he embarks on his national summer tour.
Despite the fact that he was professing his love to Tiffney in February, saying he wanted her back, the rapper is now looking for a new woman. And he hopes to find her being turning the reigns over to some other people.
We all know The Game from his hit VH1 series “Marrying The Game” as an amazing father as well as family man, that goes without saying. But what we don’t know is if there is a woman out there that would satisfy him enough to slow him down. In the past we’ve seen him give being a family man his all, but sometimes in life and love other cards come into play. Now, in the new series “She’s Got Game,” The Game sets out in pursuit of his perfect love match while he embarks on a national tour. The 10-episode series is slated to premiere summer 2015.
Tired of picking the wrong women, in “She’s Got Game,” Taylor turns to his celebrity friends to see who can help him most when it comes to matters of the heart. Each celebrity will select a young woman to accompany Game on his national tour. But which women will succumb to the not-so-innocent rock star lifestyle, and which will have his back and ultimately win his heart?
The Game aka Jayceon Taylor also serves as one of the show’s executive producers.
We already know this is gearing up to be the hottest of messes, but will you watch?
The teacher and mother of two spoke about how her book’s main character handles her emotions as her parents separate and begin to co-parent. In the interview, Cambridge also reflected on how her own children reacted to the news of her and The Game’s split, “Kelly and Justice, I believe adjusted well, knowing that Mommy and Daddy are in separate homes and they are loved in both homes.”
Cambridge also included that sometimes children believe they had a role in their parents’ divorce and separation: “Children have nothing to do with it and a lot of times they put that burden on themselves and that responsibility, thinking they may be the problem or something they did caused their parents to separate.”
Many children whose parents divorce usually become overwhelmed with their family dynamic and identity changing, but hopefully Cambridge’s book will help little ones cope. For more insight ofrom her, listen to Cambridge’s interview below.

Things between Tiffney Cambridge and rapper The Game have been in shambles for quite some time. Ever since they exposed their relationship on the Vh1 reality show, “Marrying The Game,” she’s accused him of being too juvenile and stuck in the stereotypical disrespectful ways of a rapper. He felt that she was too controlling and uptight. Eventually, those issues, along with more serious ones, pulled them apart while they were trying to plan their wedding, and from there, things got ugly. At one point, there were allegations that the rapper broke Cambridge’s nose during an argument, and he claimed that she was keeping him from their kids.
But a lot of time has passed, and things have improved between the two, even though they aren’t romantically involved again. However, that doesn’t mean that the rapper doesn’t want to make something happen again with the woman he was so close to marrying.
Cambridge posted a picture yesterday of Beyoncé and Jay Z on the set of their short film for the “On The Run” tour. The Game decided that was the perfect time to remind Cambridge of how he feels about her, and when a fan told him to go get his “woman” back, he said that he has tried:
I do think that Cambridge brought a sort of calm and stability to The Game’s very hectic lifestyle, but at the same time, they seemed to be going in two different directions. Do you think the two should get back together? Cambridge’s followers sure do…
“It’s undeniable the Love you too[sic] share, she is Queen and she definitely brings out the King in you! If you don’t go and sweep her off her feet, we are rooting for you @losangelesconfidential”
“I think it’s safe to say you guys have a lot of supporters that want to see yall together. Of course we never know what goes on behind closed doors, but we all fell in love with you guys from the show. Hope it works out for you guys!”
“You guys have a beautiful family. And even tho, we all make mistakes we can always forgive and forget and try to make things work.”
“Thanks For Helping Me Grow As A Person”: Despite Past Drama, The Game Sends Tiffney Cambridge A Loving Birthday Letter
Rapper The Game and former fiancée Tiffney Cambridge have been through a lot over the years. From breaking up to making up and trying to make it down the aisle on their reality show “Marrying The Game,” to the former couple allegedly getting involved in a violent fight earlier this year that resulted in Cambridge sustaining a broken nose (when we asked her about that fight she said, “I prefer to just keep some things private and personal between Jayceon and I.”) and the rapper claiming that she was turning their kids against him, the two have had a very volatile relationship. But as Cambridge celebrated her birthday on Sunday, the rapper sent her a very loving message on Instagram, thanking her for making him a better person despite all they had been through.
“Happy birthday to the beautiful @lovetiffney… The best mother, care taker & provider for our children I could ever ask for. In relationships, there are ups & downs… negatives & positives but no matter what the years have brought & left… On this day I want you to know that you are both acknowledged & very appreciated. Through the years, we’ve been through a lot but no matter how big the hurdle…. We got up & over it & have always managed to get back to a peaceful existence. & again, for blessing me with @kingjusticetaylor & @lilmisscali.. I am forever in debt & will make sure you guys are always taken care of…. #1 because it’s in me to do so & #2 is because you are very deserving of it…. Thanks for helping me grow as a person & being there to say the least. Enjoy your birthday….. & do not let anyone steal your sunshine. Love”
Looks like these two might be on better terms, or at least, he cares enough to just acknowledge all she does for her birthday. Either way, it was a nice gesture from him.
A few months ago, terrible domestic violence allegations involving The Game and Tiffney Cambridge hit the web. Since then, several other negative reports pertaining to the couple and their deteriorating relationship made headlines as well. We were recently able to catch up with Tiffney, who revealed where she currently stands in her relationship with the rapper-turned-reality-star and what’s next for her.
MN: At the conclusion of season three of “Marrying The Game,” you and The Game expressed that you were accepting of the fact that things were over between you two. Does that still stand or are you all trying to work it out?
Right now, we are working on our friendship and co-parenting and raising our kids. Things are good between us right now.
MN: Since it appears that there won’t be a wedding in the near future, does this mean that there won’t be a season four of “Marrying The Game?”
We don’t know yet if there will be a fourth season. Things kind of just wrapped up with season three, so we haven’t really started speaking about season four yet.
MN: In the season finale, you were kind of on a date with someone. Are you currently seeing anyone new or interested in getting to know anyone in that way?
Right now I’m just keeping my options open.
MN: A few months ago, there was talk of a domestic violence incident. The Game took to Instagram and denied that any abuse ever occurred between you two. What do you say to that?
Well, I think that in every relationship, there are things that go on that should stay between the two people in the relationship. I prefer to just keep some things private and personal between Jayceon and I.
MN: What was your reaction when The Game blamed your friend Tami Roman for destroying your family?
I really didn’t have a reaction to that because that wasn’t true. When you’re with someone for an extended period of time, you know how they react to situations. Jayceon is a person where he gets upset and kind of lashes out and rants. He goes on those tirades and stuff like that. He may say things that are not factual or true because he’s upset in that particular moment. And that’s just his personality. When he does things like that, it doesn’t really effect me either way because I know how he is. He’ll probably calm down, come off of it and we move on.
Tiffney Cambridge Says There’s No Truth To The Game’s Accusations That She’s Keeping Him From Their Children
Back in April around the time that domestic violence allegations surfaced, The Game accused his ex-fiancée, Tiffney Cambridge, of conspiring to drive his children away from him.
“Everyone has a BREAKING POINT & my weakness is my children,” he expressed. “Loving them too much has turned them into weapons to be used against me,” he went on. “& I say that to say, today I am……. LUCKY: I got to spend Easter & eat lunch with my 1st born. UN-LUCKY: haven’t got to spend time with both of my younger kids in over a month.”
“FACTS: My 3-year-old daughter told my mom that her mother told her that I am very bad man & a terrible father furthermore brainwashing Cali to harbor hate towards me preventing her from even wanting to speak to me. 3 year olds just don’t make these things up.”
Tiffney recently sat down with HipHollywood and she’s telling a different story. According to the “Marrying The Game” star, she’d never spitefully try to keep her ex-fiancé away from their children.
“I would never keep Cali and Justice away from him”, she said. “He’s their father. They love him and he’s loves them. That’s apparent to myself and everyone else, and no their hasn’t been an occasion where I’ve kept Cali and Justice from him.”
As for Jayceon’s social media rant where he accused her of doing so, Tiffney says:
“Jayceon takes to social media to address things that I feel are personal, I let that be his lane and I stay in mine,” she said.
Well if there were ever a time that The Game was not seeing Cali and Justice, judging by his Instagram page, he is back to seeing them regularly, which is great news. We can only hope that he and Tiffney continue to put their children first as they work through their differences as co-parents.
