The Game: Yummy

In the new LA Weekly, Jonathan Gold makes another rare foray into music writing, profiling rapper The Game. He makes it to paragraph three before mentioning a restaurant. (Okay, so the restaurant is Taco Bell, in the context of holding one up, but it’s still food.)

It’s actually a good article, a notch or two above a lot of the Weekly‘s music coverage. But I hope Gold isn’t getting bored with the food beat. Speaking of which, can someone please explain to me what the hell Arty Nelson is talking about every week? Citybeat should include a decoder ring.
