50 Cent recently discussed former G-Unit member, Game, and explained why the Black Wall Street leader's street credibility should be questioned.
From Fif's perspective, Game's tactics are based upon creating a strong rap buzz for himself.
"They didn't have morals," 50 said about Young Buck and Game. "They haven't been brought up under the same circumstances. We've been taught not to bite the hand that feeds us. It's just not the right way to go. For Game's part, I don't really fault him as much as Buck. Game ain't really from the streets. He's a hip-hop baby. He's doing what he thinks he's supposed to do to generate the most interest. This is why you constantly see him flip-flop from one thing to another thing. He doesn't care, as long as you're interested...I generate attention, and the association gave him attention, initially. I wrote the records that you know him for from the very beginning. See, my respect for Dr. Dre is there because I feel like you might not have heard 'P.I.M.P' the way you heard it if you didn't hear 'In da Club.' You might not have embraced 'Many Men' or felt other things on my record if I didn't start with 'In da Club.' So when a man has his first three singles, from an artist perspective, with material that I wrote for him -- whether it's 'Westside Story,' 'How We Do,' or 'Hate It or Love It' -- then it's clear he'd be like 'I ain't gonna go against that,' but he doesn't have that thing that stops him. And he doesn't mean it later, because you'll see him apologize. It seems like he's sick." (VIBE)
50 recently said he would not be willing to make a collaboration record with Game.
"No," Fif said flatly when asked what his response would be to Dre's request for a reunion collaboration. "No, I wouldn't do it. I'd be on a record, on a song, on the [Detox] album, but not on that record [with Game]. That's not making a song, that's making an event -- things for people to talk about...So there's a verse there that you think would be great for both of us, I just say, 'Erase his verse and put something in better than that.'"

Despite Game's "exit" from the Unit back in 2005, Fif claims the West Coast emcee is still signed to his label.
"[Young] Buck is still signed to G-Unit Records, hopefully he can come up with a record. If he can come up with a song, we can get my money back, you know what I'm saying? I hope he can come up with something right quick. Game is still on G-Unit Records. [With Game,] I'm looking forward to that check at least. They gotta pay me not to put the [G-Unit] logo on it."

Displaying his stance on Buck and Game, the rapper discusses both artists on Before I Self Destruct's "Strong Enough."
"Crib the size of a New York City clock now/Okay, okay, try me and get shot down/I'm like a Zebra, I got so many stripes/I'm the f*cking general/I run my click right/There was five of us, all of us millionaires/Now one's a junkie and one's a f*cking queer/Now it's three of us/That's the way it started..." ("Strong Enough")
