Game and 50 Cent have publicly for years, but behind the scenes, they’re still connected.
During an interview with DJ Skee, the former G-Unit member disclosed that he had a hand in clearing 50’s latest single “My Life”. Since Game shares the same management shingle with the Maroon 5 leader singer, Chuck Taylor got an early sample of the track where 50 disses him.
“Let me tell you what I feel like happened, and I don’t know the story. But it sounds old because the new 50 don’t even rap like that. He dissed me and [Young] Buck, but I heard it and I thought it was pretty funny,” he said. “I’m so far removed from that beef that I pretty much had to laugh at it. I’m a big fan of Eminem so I like what he did. Adam is my dude. I helped clear that record for 50. Me and Adam got the same management, so people had to come see me and play the record. So I heard me get dissed before people heard it.”
Game straightened out any false impressions about their business connections, though, stating that he hasn’t been tied to 50 on paper for awhile.
“The thing about that man is that people always say Game owes 50 money. I was signed to G-Unit for The Documentary only. After that album came out, 50, he made his money off The Documentary as he should have because he played a big instrumental role in its success. But from The Doctor’s Advocate on, it’s been all me, man. Interscope, grinding with Geffen. I got a good rapport and relationship with that building. I love my record label. So at the end of the day, it is what it is. 50, it’s really an old situation that needs to be hashed.”
