Nearly a decade since his run with G-Unit ended on bad terms, West Coast rapper Game has taken pride in declaring himself the killer of 50 Cent's rap crew.
Along with claiming he killed the Unit, Game also taunted his recent physical altercation with fellow West Coast rapper 40 Glocc.
"#ThrowbackThursday Who knew this lil baby would kill G-Unit & beat the vagina outta 40 glock ha ha ha.... #J http://instagr.am/p/QqPgxEGosM/," Game tweeted, showcasing a childhood photo of himself. (Game's Twitter)
Back in March, he reflected on his mid-2000's beef with the G-Unit boss.
That was short-lived," Game said referring to his feud with 50. "It lasted about about a year or two and it took up a lot of my time and frustrated me and a lot of people. So I phased that out once I started working on my third album, my second album. Now I'm starting the fifth, so. ... I think I was a little bit more wise and I'm from Los Angeles and I just didn't follow straight into that trap. ... I think it has a lot more to do with the fans and the critics egging it on and what it does to two enemies, which were me and 50 and sometimes it gets out of your hands and you can't control it."

On a recent "VH1: Behind The Music" broadcast, the West Coast rapper also discussed his past "G-Unot" campaign.
"50 didn't write my songs, that's just his ego rising above the team aspect of what Aftermath was all about," Game says. "I could easily say, 'Yo, I wrote this song on "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" it was a team effort." Game continues to explain how his anger towards 50 Cent and G-Unit turned into a movement. ""300 Bars," when I wrote that I was angry I wanted G-Unit to die as a brand, a record label, a group... There was a bar that said 'you sell records but a G-G-G you not.' And all it was, was a metaphor. I didn't know what I created. Next thing I know fans started yelling G-G-G U NOT! [They] started making T-shirts and the movement it got bigger than me." (Billboard)
In 2009, 50 talked about his falling out with the one-time G-Unit member.
"I doubt that strongly," 50 said about collaborating with Game in the future. "I never really understood, I didn't know what the motivation was for The Game issues. Initially it was a decision on his part, I went over it in my head like a million times...I didn't have a long period of time with Game, we worked for five days. Dre spent a year in the studio with him, so he had a chance to be around him and gauge what kind of character he is. Right after [his debut] was out, it was like, 'I'm hot,' because of the actual number of records he sold at that point...You'll see Rick Ross out there as if he was a correctional officer when I went into his background. This guy is rapping like he's a drug dealer when he's a correction officer. Game background, when you went into that, he used to be a stripper. He used to work at his mom's strip joint. So it was interesting themes that I seen from both of them but it didn't match what the content was and then I seen the transformation myself." ("Big Boy's Neighborhood")
