The Game has worked hard to establish himself as one of the best rappers in the world of hip-hop. He is highly successful, but it wasn’t always that way for the rapper, as he lived in poverty as a kid. He’s also taking a mental health break.

Social media is certainly one of the best things that could have happened to the world as well as one of the worst things. While fans can easily interact with their favorite stars easier, there is also a lot of rampant toxicity in play.

The Game recently took to his Instagram and announced that he will be taking a mental health break. The rapper explained that the time off is necessary to ensure Drillmatic: Heart Vs. Mind arrives on the current release date of August 12th. The album has already been pushed back multiple times.

PSA to any & everyone it may concern:

I’ve always prided myself on my transparency in tow with sharing every part of my life & myself with my family, friends & my fans… the past two weeks have been a nightmare for me. I have witnessed disloyalty on levels unimaginable by people I’ve trusted with my heart, money, career & livelihood. Not only have I been backstabbed & betrayed.. I’ve been left to pick up the pieces alone.

I’m in no way shape or form angry with anyone for choosing to act in the manner they have as of recent & send love & well wishes from this day forward as there is no hate, malice or vengefulness in my heart.

On top of that, I’ve been in therapy for 2 weeks for my back for inflamed muscles & a bruised tailbone from over working out. I also had an accident last night n cut my finger to the bone & had to recieve 6 stitches.

It’s been rough.. so I’ve decided to take a step back from my phone, social media & group settings, clubs etc so I can focus on completing my album so that my fans are happy with the delivery. The date is AUGUST 12TH 2022 & I promise you it will not change or move. I’ve given everything that I am to this album & I guarantee GREATNESS.

If any of my family or close friends are looking for me & it’s important… DM @almighty__joey & he will give you my email. I will reply when I can.

This break is for my MENTAL HEALTH & to afford myself the capacity to complete my album in full & stay committed to my release date.

I thank everyone for supporting my most recent freestyle & all who have supported me throughout my career.

Stay safe, Covid & Monkey Pox free… & just know…Life is short so LOVE on who LOVES YOU !!!


We certainly understand why The Game decided to take a break, as he simply wants to release the album that fans have been so long for. We’ll have to see when the album will finally drop.
