West Coast rapper Game recently reflected on his relationship with late music icon Prince and revealed what caused a collaboration to fall apart.

According to Game, his need to include a curse word on an untitled Prince collabo caused an artistic rift.

“I wanted him to get on a song and he was down to do the song, right, so we met at Doug Morris’ office at Universal a few years back and he heard the song and it was one curse word in it and he was like, ‘Yo, I can’t get on that. It’s got a curse word in it.’ … That’s the evolution of people in their lives. You get older, you get wiser. Prince became a Jehovah’s Witness and he stopped – he cut out all that. We didn’t do the song ’cause I needed that curse word. I definitely needed it. I don’t even remember [the lyric] but Prince wasn’t feeling it and we laughed about it again when I saw him, I forget, at one of these BET Awards or something. We laughed about that moment. It was real dope.” (TMZ)
