The feud between The Game and 50 Cent has been going on for over a decade. The two got introduced through Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine from Interscope Records. Dr. Dre placed The Game on G-Unit with 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, and Tony Yayo. The introduction started smooth sailing but quickly ran into tough terrain. 50 became furious when Interscope Records pushed back the release date of his sophomore album “The Massacre” for The Games’ debut album “The Documentary.”
Despite selling 1.14 million copies in the first week, 50 Cent was still upset with the way things went down. 50 felt slighted, especially considering he did a lot of work for The Games album. 50 was featured on three songs, “Hate It or Love It,” “How We Do,” and “Westside Story.” 50 Cent received an executive producer’s credit for his work on the album. Things began to spiral ever since, and 50 went on record multiple times saying he wrote the majority of The Games album. Tensions began to rise between the two superstars, and unfortunately, they haven’t been cordial since.
50 Cent and The Game Going At It Again
Recently the feud between the two has begun to rise once again. The Game has been spending a significant amount of time in the spotlight promoting his new up-and-coming album “Drillmatic.” He was on Fat Joe’s show and was asked about the incident between 50 Cent.
The Game feels that he was the hottest rapper in LA despite 50 Cent. He is grateful for the guidance Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine gave him, but either way, he was going to be successful. No matter where he signed, he felt his talent spoke for itself. It would’ve been any other major record label if it wasn’t Interscope Records.
This wasn’t the first time that the feud between 50 Cent and The Game was brought up in recent months. 50 took a shot at The Game just a few weeks ago when a video surfaced of Jimmy Iovine snubbing The Game at a Lakers game. 50 accompanied the video with the caption, “LOL, The Man didn’t even look at him. Get this guy out of here 50 wrote the records. LMFAO. @bransoncognac @lecheminduroj”
