Black Wall Street leader Game has opened up about ending his past feud against Jay-Z and how big of a role producer Pharrell Williams had on his decision.
Speaking with radio personality DJ Envy, Game credited the Neptunes hitmaker for ceasing his tension toward Young Hov.
“Pharrell man, Pharrell pulled me to the side and he was like, ‘There’s only one thing that can’t happen,’ he said, ‘you gotta stop those shots at Hov. Like, that’s my man and I talk to him and he really don’t understand your gripe with him, he don’t have no problems with you, and I think he respects what you do and I know for a fact that you respect what he does so, you know, nip that.’ And I was like, aight, that’s fair. All’s fair, that’s it.” (Power 105.1)
Last month, Game talked about brushing his past differences with Jay to the side.
“Maybe I stepped over the line because I listen to Beyonce‘s music,” Game said in an interview. “My girl listens to Beyonce’s music. All girls do. So, when I did that, I got rained on by like, it was like a chick army at my next show. Plus, I didn’t really mean that much harm, man. It’s just rap, man. As far as Jay, he’s a good friend of Pharrell’s and he worked with Jay recently. I decided, along with [Dr.] Dre and Pharrell, that being at odds with him wasn’t beneficial to what we’re trying to do in the future, so later for that.” (Yahoo)
Based off a recent album listening session with Complex, Game’s “Infared” R.E.D. Album song features the rapper contemplating his stance with Jay.
Produced By: Cool & Dre Complex says: The Compton rapper’s forays into name-dropping have recently been hit or miss, but over Cool & Dre’s 70s funk-jazz-influenced instrumental, the album’s intro is a major hit. Game drops attention-grabbing lines (“Will I ever go at Nas? H*ll nah! / Will I ever go at Jay-Z? I don’t know”) and doesn’t waste a second spewing his fully automatic braggadocio. It’s an instant head-nodding banger for a kickoff. (Complex)
Last summer, Game released his Jay-Z diss, “I’m So Wavy.”
“N*ggas pop tags, I pop the 4-5,” Game raps. “N*ggas got swag, I got the tech nine…Yeah, you got cheese and I kill rats/Translation, I still trap/Now do something with that, or respond to this/And with those big a** lips, you got my name in your mouth I hope it taste like uhhh, no homo, one more time/uhhh, that’s your promo/And I been hard to the core since I went solo/Only man on my horse like my all black polo…Got the camel in a choke hold/Tryin’ to son me, I’m not from N-Y-C/You can’t even have a child by your Destiny/And I ain’t mean to take a shot at B, I blacked out like you did Free.” (“I’m So Wavy”)
