Former G-Unit member Game recently discussed where he stands with one-time label boss 50 Cent and what exactly sparked their memorable mid-2000’s feud.
In Game’s opinion, age and ignorance ultimately fueled their problems with one another.
“Um, it’s, I haven’t seen him in about eight years,” Game revealed to Larry King when asked how his relationship with 50 is these days. “It was a rift. We had a shoot-out, in New York, in front of a radio station, [guns], yeah, it was a little bit more than a rift. [Why?] Egos. Young and dumb, being ignorant, who knows? [Who drew first?] Um, the Game. Yeah. Nah, no charges.” (“Larry King Now”)
Last year, Game said he could see himself making a follow-up to his hard-hitting “300 Bars” 2005 G-Unit diss record after getting dissed on Fif’s “My Life.”
“Maybe he got something he wants to tell us, you know, about his secret life,” Game said in response to 50’s “My Life” reference. “Ain’t nobody worried about 50. Let’s just ask the people. That’s really the best he can do. You know what I’m saying? Buck is in jail, his situation is that, he can’t defend himself from there. … Every now and again, you get these zombie movies where no matter how many times you shoot them, they keep [getting back up]. … My last freestyle was probably ‘500 Bars’ and like 26 minutes long. The freestyle that killed G-Unit, the whole staff, record label, the clothes is ‘300 Bars’ and I might have to go and double that up and just really say everything I want to say. There’s more to say.” (Power 106)
On “My Life,” Fif takes direct aim at the former Unit rapper in his opening verse.
“Yeah, 03, I went from back filthy to filthy rich /Man, the emotions change so I can never trust a b*tch/I tried to help n*ggas get on, they turned around and spit/Right in my face, so Game and/Buck, both can suck a d*ck/Now when you hear ‘em it may sound like it’s some other sh*t/Cause I’m not writing anymore, they not making hits” (“My Life”)
In summer 2012, the West Coast rapper spoke on being interested in a potential G-Unit reunion.
“Hey Whoo Kid, man, you know what it is,” Game told Whoo Kid. “I’m telling you, soon as I get off the phone, it’s everywhere. Eh, Ron-Ron hit me like, ‘Call up the Whoo Kid,’ I looked at the man, I had to put my iPhone way back and look at it. I’m like, ‘Yo, this n*gga just texted me like, ‘Call up the Whoo Kid?’ F*ck it. Whoo Kid’s my dude. I ain’t talked to [you] in a while. … [G-Unit reunion?] If it’s an opportunity to make some money, then it’s all good. If not, you know 50 [Cent] let his ego go, that’s good too but I’m all good. I’m not tripping off nobody until somebody’s tripping. Then I’m going to turn it all the way up.” (“G-Unit Radio”)
