West Coast rapper Game is really raising the stakes for his new album. The hip-hop veteran has sent out a personal message to fans about what his next solo LP means to him.

The Los Angeles native went to Instagram last night (January 27) and kept things 100 on the album’s significance.

Recent reports claimed Game had ample warning about reaching out to rap star Kanye West before making an x-rated reference about Ye’s wife Kim Kardashian on a new song.

We’re told before debuting the track, Game had both close friends and business partners urge him to 86 the Kim lyric — because of a possible/likely ferocious reaction from Ye — but he wouldn’t budge. Our Game sources say he was advised, at the very least, to reach out to Kanye before dropping the track, but Game didn’t feel a heads-up was necessary. We’re told that, at the end of the day, Game chose to rap his truth regardless of the consequences. (TMZ)

Heading into the weekend, Game stepped forward to defend his controversial lyrics.

Once the untitled song went viral, social media immediately trolled Kim’s husband over Game’s x-rated snippet.
