50 Cent and The Game have a lengthy history together. The Game’s and 50 Cent’s relationship has been tense for years, and there appears to be no resolution in sight. The Game recently backtracked on his claim that 50 Cent didn’t put him on while speaking with Fat Joe.
The Game and 50 Cent feud isn’t going away anytime soon either. The California rapper has opened up about his early history with G-Unit. A war of words erupted online recently after Fif made jokes about Game on social media.
Game retaliated with remarks about 50 Cent and his girlfriend Jamira Haines, and he returned with a couple more things on his mind. The Game addressed his relationship with G-Unit in an interview with Fat Joe, dismissing rumors that 50 Cent was the one who put him on.
“I was in a group with those n*ggas but I wasn’t breaking peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in half with G-Unit. I didn’t see them n*ggas until it was time to work. So I didn’t grow up—I grew up to Fat Joe! On Fat Joe music! On Pun, on Terror Squad. Cuban Link, like, I was locked in… when I first started smokin’ weed, it was to Cuban Link’s album, bro!”
“So, I was confused because I thought I was supposed to be loyal to where my heart was, and my heart wasn’t—a lot of people like, ‘N*gga, 50 put you on.’ No, 50 did not put me on, bro. People don’t understand that. At that time in L.A., I was it. I was the n*gga. That’s why Jimmy [Iovine] took me and told 50 he was putting me in G-Unit, and 50 accepted it because n*gga my name was ringing bells in the streets of Hip Hop. I was already on.”
“I’m not saying that like, Aftermath and Dre and 50 and those n*ggas didn’t help because that is my story. But if I would have signed with Terror Squad, I would still be The Game.”
It wouldn’t have mattered to The Game if he had signed a deal with another company like Bad Boy or Murder Inc, he insisted. What do you think about this? Did really 50 Cent put the Game on G-Unit or not? Let us know in the comments. For further updates stay tuned to Thirsty.
