*Sigh*… I was really rooting for this dude. Loved The Documentary, loved the (ironically titled) Doctor’s Advocate. Both albums had superior production and solid lyrics, despite the man’s penchant for name-dropping. Whether or not this dude is a studio gangster or an ex-Change Of Heart contestant, I could give a fuck – just like I could give a fuck whether or not Rick Ross ever *really* sold crack. At the end of the day, it doesn’t make a difference, Game’s made some great music.
But I can’t get over the actions Game takes in the media, time and again. His Stop Snitchin’, Stop Lyin’ DVD gave the first look into his obsession with 50 Cent, as he created awkward moments for himself, staring into the camera talking directly to 50 or asking people on the street if they had seen 50 Cent around. The climax of the DVD came with Game breaking into 50′s backyard and stealing his basketball rim. This actually caused the DVD to be pulled off shelves because it showed the rapper involved in an illegal act for which apparently there was a court case attached. Nice one, Fif.
Don’t get me wrong, 50 can be a punk as well. I don’t think I need to go into details here, just google “50 Cent beef” and you can see the lengths he has gone to crush his enemies, usually timed with whenever he’s about to drop a new album.
But Game’s latest stunt in this ancient, over-with saga was to use his interview time with MTV to… what else … talk about 50 Cent. In the above clip, Game compares the original G-Unit/Shady/Aftermath line-up to The Beatles saying that Jimmy Iovine said they should never have broken up and that all of the members haven’t had the same magical chemistry since. He then goes on to apologize to 50 about *everything* that has gone on over the years, and continues to reiterate how dope it was when everything was good. There’s also some strange extended metaphor in there about leaving his luggage at the airport. Or some shit.
Okay, we agree G-Unit should have never broken up, Game was hot on Aftermath, 50 hasn’t released a classic album since Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, and never a single hotter than “In Da Club”. Doesn’t matter though, 50′s rich.
The problem with this video is that Game looks like a desperate fool, trying to get the band back together for one last tour, so to speak. The obvious difference here is that 50, Dr. Dre, and Eminem don’t need Game anymore, but Game needs them tremendously, and this video screams it. Just watching him sitting in the chair, breaking down the situation with such poise, it’s hard to take anything he says seriously with that L.A. tattoo next to his eye winking at you all the time. You’re waiting for him to break down and get on his hands and knees at any given second.
This video is embarassing for anyone whoever was a fan. I’m done – I just can’t take this dude seriously anymore. – DJ Pizzo
