The Game Thinks 50 Cent Needs Him to Be Musically Relevant Again
The Game and 50 Cent had a beef that nearly turned deadly in 2005, but after squashing their beef in 2016, Chuck has recently admitted he would be down to reunite with Fif. In fact, he thinks the Queens rapper needs him if he wants to return to power musically.
Game was a guest on People's Party with Talib Kweli, in an interview posted on Saturday (Dec. 7). During their talk, the Compton rapper's relationship with 50 was a highlight. The Cali MC admitted he wouldn't be against getting in the studio with Fif.
"Me, I would entertain it," Game said. "I'm unselfish. I'm an unselfish MC. I feel like I would do it for the sake of cats who want to hear it, who want to see it, who relish in that moment that me and 50 had. If me and 50 never had a beef, my nigga, we might be billionaires by now. Me and him in the studio by ourselves with engineers was like A,B,C,D,E,F,G. Like, he knew what to do, I knew what to do. We put our voices together and that shit made magic. I got songs with 50 that are still on hard drives at my house that are timeless."
While Game sounds game to collab, he isn't sure 50 would be down considering how turbulent their split went. While 50 is hot on the TV side with Power, Game believes if Fif wants to return to be a major force in hip-hop again he needs to reunite with him.
"I know one thing for sure, if 50 is gonna be a power in hip-hop any moment from now, or come with anything that's gonna be really looked at and judged as 'Damn, 50 back,' he gotta be standing next to me."
The Game is fresh off the release of what he says will be his final album, Born 2 Rap. The new album features guest appearances from Nipsey Hussle, 21 Savage, Dom Kennedy, Anderson .Paak and more.
