Black Wall Street leader Game has finally released his highly-anticipated "400 Bars" record, which is 20 minutes of freestyling over Jay Electronica's "Exhibit C" instrumental.
On the track, Game opts out of choosing a particular rap rival aside from a brief mention of 50 Cent.
"The beat insane, Just Blaze on this motherf*cker," Game raps, "the car's outside, K's in this motherf*cker/I should let off a couple strays in this motherf*cker/F*ck that, I'm trying to get laid in this motherf*cker/Meet me in the parking lot, license plate 'Aftermath'/Screaming out 'F*ck 50,' I wouldn't snitch for half his cash/If he wasn't such a b*tch, nobody wouldn't have to blast/Steel is down in Jacksonville, don't make me have to wrap your Jags..." ("400 Bars")
Following its release, Game shared rappers' reactions to the song via Twitter.

Earlier this year, Game said he was trying to place his "400 Bars" song on a DJ Drama mixtape.
"I got so many amazing records, I don't know if I should go hard to the streets or go radio," Game said about his upcoming R.E.D. Album. "But before the album there will be a mixtape with DJ Drama, Red Everything. Red Everything mixtape -- it's a bunch of tracks I did specifically for Drama. They're full songs mixed with a few freestyles. I'm trying to finish up '400 Bars' and get it on there. Ain't nobody piss me off that much. But even if that ain't on there, the mixtape is still gonna be crazy." (MTV)
