VH1′s “Marrying the Game” delves into the unlikely love story of double platinum selling rapper Jayceon Taylor, better known as his stage name “Game,” and his straight-laced school teacher fiancé Tiffney Cambridge as they both prepare to walk down the aisle.
After eight years, two children (5-year-old King Justice and 2-year-old Cali Dream) and four proposals, Tiffney has finally agreed to marry Game despite their troubled past; and each episode in the reality series shows not only the strength of their bond, but also how marrying the Game, though it may seem sweet, is not so easy.
Find out whether or not Game and Tiffny make it to the altar in “Marrying the Game.”
In the first episode, Game’s lack of involvement from day one comes to a head when he flakes on the day of the wedding walkthrough due to an all-night session in the studio.
And in the second episode, Game steps up his “Game” by becoming more involved in the marriage planning and learns that this marriage “stuff” sometimes comes with sweet rewards.

When Kendrick Lamar dropped his studio debut last month, J. Cole was photographed buying up a stack of physical copies to show his support, and K-Dot will have a chance to return the favor on January 28, when the Roc Nation rapper releases his sophomore LP Born Sinner.
Over the past few months, Cole has previewed new verses at shows, dropped freestyles (like "The Cure" over The Throne's "Lift Off") and released a couple of singles (including "I'm A Fool" at the request of a fan and "Get Free Coleworld" featuring Major Lazer), but he's still been relatively quiet considering the frequency of releases from most rappers these days.
"I ain't drop nothing in a while because I feel like we in this digital age where sh-- moves so fast," Cole told fans when he previewed a verse of"Chaining Day" back in July. "N---as got songs every week, you can't even keep up with this sh--."
Turns out all that time away from the digital world will result in a new album due out on his 28th birthday.
The North Carolina native hit Ustream on Monday night to chat with his fans and confirm the release date, also adding a few new posts to his Dreamvillain blog. One post is a short video clip which finds a little boy — Young Simba? — praying in an empty church, before flashing a few signs on white cards, which read: "Are we all sinners?" "Aren't we all saints?" followed by the album title "Born Sinner" and the January 28 release date. The clip was soundtracked by bare piano keys, a little reminiscent of what we got on the "Intro" to Cole's Friday Night Lights mixtape.
With the announcement out of the way, seems like some new music should be on the way soon.

According to TMZ, Wayne was ordered to pay Jones $2.2 million based on the countersuit which stated that the rapper blocked the release of his film, "The Carter," therefore infringing on its profits. The lawsuit made unintentional headlines last month when video of the Young Money boss' apathetic and dismissive behavior toward his lawyer during a videotaped deposition leaked online.
The tapes, released by TMZ last month, inspired thousands of posts on social media referencing Wayne's "hilarious" deposition. The judge overseeing the lawsuit at the time was not at all entertained by the videos, however, and admonished the Young Money CEO for his display of "unreasonable conduct in the deposition" and "irresponsible behavior."
The rapper, born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., originally sued Jones over what he called the director's "scandalous portrayal" of him in "The Carter," a 2009 documentary about the multiplatinum artist's life. Wayne also sued over the alleged unauthorized use of his music for the film.
In addition to his legal troubles, Weezy has been recovering from a health scare last month that required an emergency landing of the MC's private jet in Texas. Early reports that Wayne had suffered multiple seizures were put to rest when the rapper's reps released a statement that he had been successfully treated for a "severe migraine and dehydration."Wayne later took to Twitter to announce that he was "good" and thanked everyone for their prayers. He is reportedly still recovering at his mother's home in Louisiana.
*** How to watch tonight: With several battleground states having poll-closing times at 8:00 pm ET or earlier (Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio, Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania), we’re going to know a lot about how the race is breaking fairly early in the evening. How long does it take to call North Carolina (a state Romney probably wants to put away early) and Pennsylvania (ditto Obama)? Will Florida and Virginia take hours to call? (Remember, no state better matched the 2008 popular than Virginia did four years ago.) Here are all the final poll closing times in ET (NBC News will not call a race until all polls have closed in that state):
