Game's "Red Nation" Video Banned From BET, MTV

MTV and BET decide they aren't feeling Game's "aggressive content."

As Game gears up for his long-delayed R.E.D. album's release, BET and MTV have apparently decided to ban the music video for "Red Nation."

Citing too much gang-related content, the networks have elected not to show the video for the song, which features Lil Wayne.

Though neither network has officially said anything, Game took to Twitter to tell his fans the news:

Game noted that the networks originally banned the song "One Blood," until it received over one million views on YouTube.

    Goddamn niggas and their fucking anal-ysis! Game may be red(blood), but this fucking song off da r.e.d. album has another meaning, rededicated! 2 hip hop, and that video isn't worse than hova's "run this town", he aint even takin up the gangbanging aspect in the lyrics or the fuccin video, game got banned cuz he didnt joint the elite, and thats what the problem is. faggots

  • Real Talk

    I find it hilarious people bashing this song because it's based on Gang Affiliation when Snoop and others have been doing it for years. Everyone use to love Gangsta Rap and now it's all about that girly pop rap bullshit with no good fruity shit loops beats produced by some no talent ass clown and rappers just singing raps trying to be RNB. MOST modern Rap is a joke. And the ones buying that shit needs to stop. You fans ruin the music by supporting bullshit. MTV and BET are a bunch of hypocrites. They'd play just about anything in the 90's but now you can't show shit. Take the skirt off and put some pants on MTV and BET. I swear we need a second coming of N.W.A or something because the skirts in hip hop are flying these days.

  • Kobo

    WTF is a Vivo Game lol

  • hiphop

    thats cuz these 90s babies keep supporting pussy music

    • Big Wo0orm 45

Big L, Jay, Nasty NaS, BIG, n my nigga Darkman X. fuck outa here. i fuks wit all 90s music and real hiphop. all dez bubble gum rppers and dey new pussy style aint accepted over here homie.

    • Jesus

  • jesse breese

    God TV ststions espesally MTV are such pussies

  • jnr

    Ok, so let me get this straight... Some of you guys are hating on GAME for making an aggressive rap song because it's gang affiliated? Werent you the same guys praising him in the music section when this song came out? and now you wana diss him just because MTV and BET dont wana air his shit? You guys never once dissed him in the music section about it sounding gang affiliated and now you wana do so just because of MTV and BET? oh please... Also the young generation dont have to listen to his shit on MTV or BET because they already listen to Lady Gaga,Rihanna, and some pop related rnb etc... Just like he said, you guys would have dissed him if he had made some bubble gum song and yet you still diss him just because he stayed on his lane? WOW... GAME has always rapped about gang shit since he came out and you never dissed him so why now? Every rapper raps about some dumb shit and the occasional sense-making songs( GAME included) so stop with the hate and enjoy the music if not then cool but dont hate!

    • ryan

      i agree wit u hes keeping it real but his last album was full of bubble gum shit shit like wit neyo and chris brown wtf but seems to hv his hed screwed bk on like he did on his frist two albums its like lax never even exsisted so keep making them hits gme this tune will be big nd theyl finally show it on mtv and bet but i cued give a fuck either wy as long s he keeps it gangsta

  • Dey both not wit the bizz

  • hk

    mtv/bet can show inappropriate vids like S&M and others why can't they show red nation? it's not little kids listen to Game, whereas the likes of rihanna have a lot of fans that are young. MTV/BET need to stop with the BS.

  • SmartBlackDude

    Ignorant ass nigga helping young impressionable niggas become old worthless niggas. Congratulations, dumb fuck. And Lil Wayne knows he is too damned smart to be associating with dumb fucks like Game. Wayne doesn't even have to make dumb, "I'm a nigga that shoots people" music. Yes, he often talks about sex, drugs and money, but promoting gang violence only encourages the stupidity of stupid niggas and there is no reason for him to do that. Seriously, what is positive about stupid ass niggas shooting each other over what color shirt or hat they like to wear? Also, typing "locc" intead of lock does not make you "gangsta." If you know how to use a computer and have access to the internet, you are too intelligent to be sucking off Game because his ignorant ass got a video banned. I hate dumbass niggas. They just make my people look so bad.

      He doesn't talk about the problems and declares that they're wrong, he GLORIFIES them to impress little dumb fucks like you. I wonder how many people think they're gangsta when the buy a cd of this faggot.

    • bolow1

      But you would rather have sirup sipping addicts promoting homosexuality with bars saying complete and utter nonsense then game talking about some serious shit going down and pretent reality in south central is a bed of roses and every dude is iced out in heaven with a million prostitute strippers, partying 24hrs a day, convicing youngnz to rap for an easy living instead of opting to get that education

  • king6924

    damn game, love your music when you put effort..i dislike when you mention the cars clothes money hoes and being a blood. if your a blood, cool man do your thing GAME. understand that when you rap about being in a gang, those that are in a gang think its cool to be in a gang. it may be cool to them, but whers their education at? how many gang bangers make it to college, make a decent salary, make it out the hood?!? gang banging to me is funny. i respect what they do, holding it down for the hood and the homies, thats whats up. but to me, whoever bangs the hardest, is really just the most "caught up." my two cents, listen to what everybody has to say, throw out the bullshit you'll get rich.

  • noivad12

    they should be ashamed of themselves promoting that gang bullshit like that to kids..good they banned the bid..non of u niggas is bangin you rappin irrelevant if you did it before,,thats not how u make a living now quit selling these kids a lifestyle that isn't real or a lifestlye that won't prosper them.

    • ssk

      I agree with noivad12 to an extent here. Gangs shouldnt be what is "cool" for young people in the sense all its going to lead them to is a future in jail or dead. Lets face it though rappers if they do come from that background are going to rap about it but they shouldnt act like they are still in the streets doing pablo escobar, tony montana, george jung type shit in the hood. I know im going to catch flack saying this but i enjoy 50's music for the most part because his aggresive content is him recalling stories and i personally enjoy hearing rappers telling their past. On the other hand like red nation its just glorifying gang banging saying you get the bitches cars and respect. just my two cents who gives a fuck just listen to music and enjoy it. oh an i think game is a phony G-unit lol

      so your saying gangs arnt real? your saying the bloods and crips dont exist? come on nigga. get off your ass and go to the streets nigga.

      +1 Agree with every point you've mentioned there. One week they'll be denouncing drugs & gangs and the next they're promoting them all over again in a new song.

    I don't understand why some of these video chicks can be half naked and influence the young women of the world freely but as soon as someone's gang affiliated they can't get their video up. Either ban neither or ban both, dickheads

    These 2 clowns, Im talking bout Game and Weezy are damn near 30 still talking bout gang bangin are u fucking serious??? What a lifestyle to promote to the teens of America smh... Shit like this is why we got all these fake thugs around now... Now its all of a sudden cool to join gangs and get 100 tattoos, this makes me sick... Only pussies join gangs for no reason and followers join gangs cause their friends are in them... Im from the hood and i know some people in gangs but that didnt mean i had to join one, that shit is just for suka niggas that need protection... If you grown and still banging, setting a bad example for the youth DIE SLOW MUTHAFUKA...

    If RED has verses from GAME like on the GFKs "Drama", IM IN.

  • Ganjarelli

    On some real talk, this is my favorite Game track in a long time. Wayne on the hook ain't even that bad, reminds me of "My Life". Game been hella consistent lately as well. "Rough" was excellent (imo) as well as the finished "Gangster" cut with Devin the Dude. "Keepin it Real, "Only One" & "Monsters in my Head" were all great too, but that "Violin" wasn't for me and "Pot of Gold" was too much Chris Brown (the other C.B. joint with Game was just enough). I wasn't feelin his last effort with that DJ Skee mixtape as much as this new shit, so I got to say that he on a roll. Can't wait to see the vid on Thursday.

  • marc_aurelius

    Who cares. BET and MTV don't even play videos so it wouldn't see the light of day anyway. Plus the Game and the whole gangsta shit is played out anyway. People came out the wood work claiming blood nation in the mid 2000's and it was boring then. Dudes flow is wack. Nothin' but name dropping. The whole gang affiliated shit is played out. Next topic.

    I don't know what everyone is talking about...Game is one of the few popular artists that comes with it on every track and stays true to himself. And if MTV and BET can't handle that because it isn't some Katy Perry video or good business then fuck them.

      He stands true to himself, because he can't change his style for once, this nigga talks about the same (actually nothing)on every fucking track.

    MTV & BET should start banning play from artists like Lil Wayne, Drake, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj because of the bad influence making people think that it's good when in reality it's horrible. So any bad rapper should get banned bring back Yo MTV Raps and have some real emcees on there.

  • Bowski

    Who still watches MTV or BET these days? In my opinion if you're over 30 and still watch those "Watered Down TV Stations" then you're part the problem w/hip hop today. They're "Bandwagon-Type" media outlets and are UNTRUE to the culture anyways.

    • Ben Grimm

      @Anonmous: The fact that your spewing that bull out of your head reflects what you've been doing of late. @Bowski: People of ages under 30 shouldnt be watching that crap either. The truth is the controversy is all that sells as a franchise. If this video is banned, the game will put It on the internet. If It blows on the internet then MTV put it onto theyre channel. If It goes onto their channel then they look x10 "cooler" to the impressionable youth for showing a video that was originally banned. Everyone wins, right? No, some youth starts copying the stuff in the video(red hair dye etc) and ends up getting beaten or killed.
