Atlanta-based trio Travis Porter recently sat down to speak with AllHipHop.com about the group’s recent success and their hit song “Make it Rain.”

It feels good to go to people’s states and being able to take n****s b*****s and s**t."

An altercation with family members at a funeral in July of 2008 continues to haunt Compton, California rapper Game, who was ordered to pay $50,000 for beating his cousin during the altercation.
Game became involved in a physical altercation with his cousin Robert "Kirky" Kirkwood, over the cost of a funeral for Kirkwood's sister, who died after a six-year illness.
According to TMZ.com, a Los Angeles judge recently ordered Game to pay $50,000 for Kirkwood's medical expenses and other damages, although Game's cousin has yet to receive a cent.
The fight began when Kirkwood confronted Game outside of the church, over an alleged promise to pay half of the $14,000 funeral bill during the services.
In October of 2008, Game was also sentenced to 36 anger management courses over the fight, which erupted when he showed up to the funeral unannounced.
