The Game Says Michael Jackson Asked Him To End His Feud With 50 Cent
Talk about an unlikely peacemaker! Hip-hop fans know that former G-Unit labelmates – rappers The Game and 50 Cent – were once embroiled in a beef so tense, that many believed that it would end in physical violence. However, The Game says one person tried to intervene in the conflict by offering a collaboration as a peace offering – iconic musician, Michael Jackson.
Still, The Game says that MJ’s camp tried to portray their phone conversation as The Game reaching out to the gloved one, when in reality it was the other way around. The Game told Hip-Hop DX:
“I’m in Canada on tour- I’m like, ‘Michael Jackson wants to talk about what?'”
He detailed their conversation:
“That was weird as f*ck. It’s like, this ain’t how I wanna meet Michael Jackson or talk to Michael Jackson. I kinda felt like Mike was on some lame sh*t. Like, who sent you type sh*t, but at the same time it was like, you know that voice, Michael Jackson’s voice that you hear. Like, that n*gga wasn’t talking like that. It was like, lowkey deep. You could still tell it was Michael Jackson but it was more like…it was like regular.”
The Game continued:
“[Michael Jackson said,] ‘I think that you and 50 did great work. It would be a travesty if the world never got to hear you guys again. Would you be open to having a conversation and squashing that beef and doing something for my album?’
At that time I was so in it with 50 I actually hated 50. I wanted to kill him at that time. He probably had the same mutual feelings for me. That’s where Mike lost me. In my head, I was just not open to doing that. I can’t remember how we ended the conversation or whatnot. I didn’t tell Mike no, but it never came to fruition.”
What do you think a song featuring Michael Jackson, The Game, and 50 Cent have sounded like? Let us know in the comments.
