West Coast rapper Game is not backing down from going at former Bad Boy Records artist Shyne days after he taunted music newcomer Kendrick Lamar‘s long-awaited studio debut album.
Game said Shyne’s jabs could get him into some sticky situations including a face-to-face confrontation.
“Whenever a shot is taken at Kendrick, I think that’s the pool I’ma dive in head-first, whether there is water there or not,” Game said in an interview. “Personally, I think Shyne should just back away and let the kid breathe and if not, I don’t know, we might find ourselves face-to-face or sh– that nobody really wants to see happen. Kendrick is non-confrontational, he’s not a thug, he’s not a gang banger, he’s just a dope, hip-hop lyricist, but he’s from the streets and he got a lot of ties out here and a lot of good hood n—as with him and I’m one of them.” (MTV)
Earlier this week, Game and Shyne publicly exchanged some dicey words.
“RT @OriginalShyne: Listened to the Kendrick Lamar album during lunch and @OriginalShyne was right. TRASH! – B*tch, shut up !!!,” he tweeted late Wednesday (October 24).
“RT @OriginalShyne: @thegame Wassup son? Why u involving yourself on something don’t concern u? – If its bout KDOT.. It CONCERN ME !!!!!”
“RT @OriginalShyne: @thegame u outta pocket youngster!!! I felt gkmd album was trash, deal wit! – naw blood, YOU TRASH.. Deal wit that !!!”
“The west is mine !!!!! Protect it & EVERYTHING in it at ALL COSTS !!!! F*ck n*ggas !!! Thank God. #JesusPiece” (Game’s Twitter)
Fellow West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle shared a similar sentiment toward Shyne.
