Game is no stranger to beef, but his latest war of words has him crossing over into a new medium. The West Coast rapper recently became engaged with Fox News personality Michelle Malkin after she slammed the album art for his recently released LP, Jesus Piece, as blasphemous. The artwork depicts Jesus wearing a red bandana and gold, jewelry-encrusted necklace.

"It's basically there's a reporter on FOX News 11 named Michelle Malkin who voiced hate for the album cover and racist remarks because of what is our art form, what is something as simple as just art in the album cover," Game said in a recent interview with SkeeTV.

Malkin, an arch conservative known for making inflammatory statements, has been contending with rowdy Game fans on Twitter ever since speaking out against the album. In his interview with DJ Skee, Game defended the right for anyone to depict Jesus as he or she sees him.

"However you depict him in your own mind, in your own visions, through your artwork, through your own religion, that's on you. It's not my place to hate on that," he said.

Game has since called for a boycott of Fox News.

"I'm going to do everything I can to shut them down because we can't allow that, especially going into a new year," he said.
