Game’s fallout with 50 Cent has been long documented through diss tracks and public slander, but the former G-Unit member is ready to bury the hatchet. On “Dead” off his recent mixtape Purp & Patron, the Compton rapper spits, “What up 50, let’s talk it out/ But until we talk it out/ Don’t end up dead.” So was he just being facetious?
Turns out, the West Coast MC is prepared to make peace with just about everyone—including his nemesis. “Man, I’ll have a sit-down with anybody. I’m not opposed to anything,” Game told Rap-Up.com. “That was just a lyric in a song that breeded maybe hope for some fans out there. Not necessarily saying that’ll ever happen, but I’m always open to chopping it up and letting bygones be bygones to any situation in life pretty much—unless it persists to piss me off or rub me uneasy. But other than that, I’m game.”
While the back and forth could eventually wear a rapper down, the Cali spitter claims that battling is the only thing that doesn’t grind his gears. “Nah, I don’t really grow tired of nothing,” he said. “I grow tired of working, man, and being in the studio late. I don’t get tired of anything that doesn’t require any energy.”
Following the success of Purp & Patron, Game is releasing the follow-up The Hangover, a collection of leftover tracks from his recent studio sessions. The 15-track offering is scheduled to drop today at 4:20 p.m. PST.
