The Game had plenty of people in his ear telling him to drop the graphic lyric about sex with Kim Kardashian West … but the rapper stuck to his guns, despite risking very personal relationships with the Kardashians.
Sources close to Game tell us … the single he just unveiled was wrapped weeks ago. The line that’s causing friction … “I held Kim Kardashian by the throat, n****. I made her swallow my kids until she choked, n****.”

We’re told before debuting the track, Game had both close friends and business partners urge him to 86 the Kim lyric — because of a possible/likely ferocious reaction from Ye — but he wouldn’t budge.
Our Game sources say he was advised, at the very least, to reach out to Kanye before dropping the track, but Game didn’t feel a heads-up was necessary. We’re told that, at the end of the day, Game chose to rap his truth regardless of the consequences.
You’ll remember … Kanye came down hard on Drake and Nick Cannon last year for bringing up ANYTHING about Kim Kardashian.
Can’t imagine the Game lyric is sitting well with Ye. So far, no reaction.
Bam Margera‘s friends are seriously worried about his ongoing battle with alcoholism, even though he’s clearing the legal hurdles stemming from his DUI case.
On the same day fellow ‘Jackass’ star Brandon Novak told us he’s concerned over his buddy’s drinking habits, Bam’s lawyer was busy submitting legal docs informing the court that Bam was ahead of schedule with the terms of his DUI sentence.
According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Bam completed a 3-month online alcohol program and attended 10 AA meetings. He’s still on probation.
Brandon told us he was super sketched out when Bam checked himself out of a Bay Area rehab facility earlier this month, because he believes Bam could end up killing himself if he doesn’t clean up his act.
Ariana Grande‘s “7 Rings” drops Friday … and we’re told Ariana and Co. expect the song will become an anthem for female empowerment … with more than a mention of retail therapy as a cure for breakups.
Sources involved in the recording say “7 Rings” wasn’t just a random song title … the name was inspired by something that happened shortly after her breakup with Pete Davidson. Ariana went out with her girls on a shopping spree, meandered into a jewelry store and bought 7 engagement rings for her friends.
One verse goes like this …
They say money doesn’t solve your problems
Whoever said that must not have enough money to solve them.
The lyrics also reference her breakups — just like “Thank U, Next”
“7 Rings” is Ariana’s first single since releasing “Thank U, Next” … and her people think the new song will do at least as well as its predecessor.
We’re told the song will also feature a new music video.
