West Coast rapper Game has publicly revealed his stance on family and why he intentionally distances himself from them.
Writing via Twitter, the Black Wall Street leader called out his family’s lack of support in past years.
“AYE, i gotta confession to make: F%$K FAMILY !!! from the bottom of my heart. Y’all think yall gone run me dry…. hit ya#brakelights hoe,” he wrote Monday (August 9) evening.
“Aint gotta piece of lint for you.”
“QUESTION: how many of my “FAMILY” members came to see me when I was in the hospital all shot up ? THE ANSWER: 0.” (Game’s Twitter)
Game’s brother, Big Fase, hit up Twitter yesterday to call out the rapper’s lack of support.
“F*CK A N*GGGA WHO DO A SONG ABOUT HIS SISTER LIFE WITHOUT HER BLESSING, BUT WONT HELP HER WHEN SHE REACHES OUT DOIN BAD.”
“THIS AINT ABOUT NO F*CKIN ‘BRAKELIGHTS”…ITS ABOUT THE TAYLOR FAMILY AND THE FAMILY MEMBER WHO GOT $ AND LEFT EVERYBODY BEHIND..MOM/DAD.ALL.” (Big Fase’s Twitter)
In August 2009, Game was sued by his cousin, Robert “Kirky” Kirkwood, over a physical brawl they had at his sister’s funeral a year prior.
Robert Kirkwood just filed a lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming the The Game and four others assaulted him at his sister’s funeral in July of ’08. The suit says the throwdown started when Robert confronted The Game because the rich rapper wouldn’t pay for a part of the funeral costs. Robert says he suffered “severe and permanent injuries” during the alleged fight. Robert is suing The Game — along with the four other people he claims took part in the fight — for medical expenses, loss of income and general damages. (TMZ)
Game previously spoke on the incident in a 2008 interview.
“Two days prior to this funeral, my cousin Kirky, he’s already got his Crip homies at the funeral,” Game said in an interview. “He called my brother Fase and asked him would he jump in if him and his homies jumped me at the funeral…He’s already plotting on me. When I get there, I’m thinking the funeral and the death of his sister would calm all that. When I see him, I shake his hand, I go sit down and tell him I love him…Mo money, mo problems. Now, my family is my worst enemy. I hate them more than I hate 50 Cent man.” (98.3 Jams)
The rapper is currently putting together his upcoming R.E.D. Album, set to drop later this month.
“I think I should stop saying when the album is gonna be released and just say ‘when it’s released, just pick it up,’ man. And I think that no matter how long people wait, we’re not gonna get into a Detox situation and wait over 10 years for that…August 24th was real realistic to me until I started touring. Before I get really locked into it, when I get home on the 8th man…you know, it might still be the 24th once I talk to [Interscope CEO] Jimmy Iovine. He’s overseas and he gets back when I get back so I’ma sit down with him and have a meeting and we’ll play everything I got. I think I’m missing my huge single like “My Life,” or “Hate It or Love It,” or “One Blood.” And I think I really need to find that…Like I’m looking for a cross between “One Blood” and “Hate It or Love It.” And I think that it wouldn’t be successful or right for me if I put my album out before that.” (Complex)
