The Game Loses Rolex (Records), Starts The Firm (Records)

(AllHipHop News) Some artists send out emails to journalists, others forgo press entirely, Game uses Instagram as his press conference. After starting Rolex Records with Stat Quo in late December, legal battles with the luxury watch company Rolex has forced him to change the label’s name.

Check out the long Instagram post below:

 

No mention of Stat Quo being apart of The Firm.

    You mean Rolex won’t give Game the rights to use their name….OH MY GOD…SHOCKING!!

    • haers

      Im sure he was aware of that. What i think he wanted to do was for Rolex to invest/sponsor in the record label sorta like a crosspromotion thing where Game and his artists help advertize the Rolex company and Rolex invest a few into the label. It happens all the time in the industry but people don’t realize that.

      Of course i could be wrong.

      • Yeah, but one should get the approval first!

        #IJS

      • remember when it was stated he bought 30 of his homies rolexs? i guess he wanted those comped too

      • I think that was just Game nut riding on some dumb ‘chet if he even brought them REAL Rolex. (*No Ace Hood)

        He should have brought them low income multi units for the same price so that they have a place to live & residual income later in life.

        Cosign. Give me something I can take to a pawn shop. Hammer had it right he just tried to hook up the whole damn city as opposed to the loyal few.

      • “You can’t touch my riches Even if you had MC Hammer and them 357 bitches” …Big ~ Come On

        Hammer gets much props, he employed 700 people, but…”Give a man a fish, feed him for a meal, teach him to fish and it will feed him for a life time” applies.

        This just highlights our overall lack of “PowerNomics”.

      • hoeyuno

        Hammer was good to the city of Oakland. but he was too generous and thought that rap money would always come. didn’t leave enough meat on the bone for himself.

      • Didn’t invest it…he only spent it.

      • hoeyuno

        Haha no shit. game got 10 broke mofos on his couch at all times wearing 20000 dolla watches. I woulda been the first to pawn mine. I’d be at the rolex boys photo shoot and game would be like “where the fucc your watch’….

      • Hahahahaaa @ Game asking about watch!

      • hoeyuno

        I think that was the game trying to buy rolexs Cosign. didn’t work.

    • hoeyuno

      game ain’t the smartest mofo. he lucked out. I’m surprised Rolex didn’t take him for everything. those corporate lawyers are beasts

    • hoeyuno

      No shit. I wonder why rawse hasnt had legal issues with maybach music??

      • YahMamma

        Because “Daimler announced in November 2011 that Maybach will cease to be a brand
        by 2013 and manufactured the last Maybach-vehicle in December 2012.
        This was due to poor sales having only sold 3,000 cars since their
        revival in 2002”. Clearly all 3k of those cars were bought by rental/leasing companies to rent to rappers. 3k is not relevant, hence the brand, like Ross’s career, are dead.

    What happened to Black Wallstreet?

    • dehova

      I think his brother owned the name (now that’s some 50 cent type shit if ever I saw it). I remember Game trying to be slick with The New BlackWall or some bollocks but, I mean, which artist signed to that label has or ever will release an LP? I find Game entertaining but as a rapper, I just don’t get him.

  • brotha_man

    *looks at nas* so…..

  • junj03

    The Firm? oh Steve Stoute,Nas & Dre will sue his ass soon…

    • loco_en_el_coco

      More like John Grisham.

      • brotha_man

        nice!!

    • king sodomy

      there was a movie called the firm before the group

      • dehova

        And before that, that’s what the indigenous British organised crime group associated with the Kray Twins was called

    Does anyone know if this guy received an inheritance lately? Seems to be the new Monty Brewster (The film Brewster’s Millions for you young bucks is a classic) and just giving that money away. Maybe now Henchman ain’t around to extort him he enjoys giving his money away.

    • hoeyuno

      Nah he always makes the forbes list. I guess there’s a lot of people who still like wack recycled music

      • dehova

        Kl. To be fair, I had just woken up when I left that comment and as per usual, I was chatting s***

      • hoeyuno

        Haha its all good… I actually think when he was signed to the unit 50 was paying him good money to go after them and keep that beef going.

  • NEWSKULL

    Good News

  • brotha_man

    this dude cant think outside the box for ish

    • hoeyuno

      No. hes a trendy mofo.he’s like a 16 year old girl following what’s “cool”.. he wears tight clothes now.

    • Papi Peligro

      You can tell by his raps he don’t know nothing outside of cd crate.

    Does he ever come up with his own ideas. black wallstreet, Rolex and the firm are all taken. didnt he buy like 20 rolexs when he launched that shit. he thought that would make them turn the other cheek… stat quo dope tho. didn’t know he was involved.

  • Record Labels are a thing of the past…Game need to understand that his music is not going to be hot and popping forever.

    BLACK WALL ST,ROLEX RECORDS,WHO GIVES A F*CK…THE GAME IS GARBAGE

  • RBG

    another dumb ass move. first off he should have stayed with g unit until he started his own label, and got artists in the game. then he should have said “g-unot”. he tried to use them and run but tripped at the starters block. if you go back to early 50 cent interviews he said that he wanted his artists to start their own shit so they didnt have to rely on him. nobody listened. and look at all of them now. roley records is a wack name. i know that he is a father, maybe he could have used a combination of his childrens names. roley records is as original as maybach music.

  • DesignatedH8R

    Everybody’s always hating on this man. Game is one of the best rappers right now, He’s got an ear for talent, he was the first dude to give Kendrick Lamar a shot to appear on one of his mixtapes. Might not be the best name for a record label, but I hope something works out for him.

    • ear for talent? he’ll do a song with anyone… has done a song with everyone lol…

      • DesignatedH8R

        That’s not true. He refused to do a song with Knoc-Turnal. I look at it as an accomplishment he’s collaborated with most of the best rappers alive.

  • Biting off of NaS now?… SMH!

  • theres nothing original with game … never has been never will be, he made a lot of money off scrunching his face up and talking tough

  • he tried to pull a maybach music tyoe of thing and couldnt ahahaha

    • brotha_man

      they stopped making maybachs so mercedes could careless

  • king sodomy

    he could always go with timex records

  • Jay

    foxy,az,nas, and mega are the firm not this nigga
