Former G-Unit member The Game recently revealed a secret conversation he had with the late Michael Jackson and said the iconic singer aimed to cease his rap war with 50 Cent in 2005.
Claiming the phone call took place while he was on tour in 2005, Game explained his conversation with the "King of Pop."
"He got to this one thing that makes me laugh, man." Game said in an interview. "He said, 'I don't know how you're gonna feel about this, but I want to ask you something. I don't want you to judge me, but I don't really know everything that's going on between you and 50. But I want to be the middleman behind you putting this situation to bed.'" (MTV)
Game recently paid homage to Jackson's legacy with a tribute song featuring Diddy, Chris Brown, Mario Winans and more.
"You're Michael Jackson, I'm Michael Jackson," Game raps. "We all Michael Jackson, I guess what I'm asking, is everybody bow their head for a legend/Don't breathe for a second, now let air out, grab the hand of somebody you care about/So you can hear my message, hear my confession/Everybody tell Usher, I seen a moonwalk/Guess the young Thriller touched him/He touched me, like he touched you." ("Better On The Other Side")
50 Cent released his version of a tribute on "Where You Are" which featured the G-Unit leader trading bars with a young Jackson.
"They say I ain't lyrical, they say I ain't a miracle," 50 raps. "I say some hard sh*t, then they say I ain't spiritual/They act like they know God better than me, I know God Allah, I used to pump crack up the street...N*gga you ain't ever gonna see me in the hood, f*ck that sh*t, n*gga I'm too good/Run and go tell 50's boogee, don't buy his CDs, don't go see his movies/Don't act like you used to in juvie, on that medication, that n*gga be looney...Can it be I've been away too long/I've been away man, did you forget me? I'm back baby, I'm back...Oh, I'm in Southside, this is that sh*t right here." ("Where You Are (MJ Tribute)")
Following his departure from the Unit, Game launched a G-Unot campaign which aimed to end the careers of 50 Cent and other members in his rap group.
The Game had released images depicting the rap group in many parodies on some of his previous mixtapes, including Ghost Unit, which pictures them as parapsychologists, The Ghostbusters. The Game launched a boycott of G-Unit called "G-Unot". (All Hip Hop)
