West Coast rapper Game sat down with George Lopez on Lopez Tonight and discussed his stance on his “Red Nation” music video’s ban from MTV and BET, and as well as shed light on the real issue behind the decision.
Game said music television outlets called the clip inappropriate for children.
“I like to take a little bit of credit myself, too,” Game told George Lopez when told the MTV and BET ban helped create a strong online buzz. “They said that they had kid viewers and, you know, it was too gang affiliated but I understand. I got kids, so I didn’t argue it. I said cool and went straight to YouTube and now we’re at almost four million views.”
