Rapper The Game is paying tribute to Nelson Mandela with a new tattoo.
On Instagram the rapper revealed a picture of his recently completed tattoo depicting the late South African leader looking out from his prison cell.
Tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado had the honor of adding the new ink to the right side of Game's back. Game also said the tat took more than seven hours to complete.
Game also has tattoos of Trayvon Martin and President Barack Obama, as well as the late singer Aaliyah and the late TLC member Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes.
Following Mandela's death last Thursday, Game took to Twitter to call Mandela "one of the greatest leaders of our time."
Being a musician is dangerous work - at least according to Kanye West.
In an interview with syndicated radio show Saturday Night Online Live with Romeo that aired over the weekend, Kanye compared his job to that of a police officer.
"I'm putting my life at risk... this is like being a police officer, or like war or something," Kanye told Saturday Night Online's Garrett. "You're literally going out to do your job every day knowing that something could happen to you."
He seems to be following in Tom Cruise's footsteps, who recently compared his job as an actor to being at war.
Other highlights from the interview:
Kanye equates himself with other great artists: "I'm great like Michaelangelo... Disney."
Kanye's response to people who don't appreciate his rants: "What you call a rant I call a visionary stream of consciousness."
