More attention is being sent rapper Game's way, and the controversy is heating up. Early this week, Jay-Z's Hot97 freestyle -- that many believe is aimed toward.
Game -- made its way to Europe where Game is touring, and the rapper responded with some words for Jay-Z.
During a performance in Amsterdam last night (February 10), Game expressed his anger regarding the freestyle by saying, "Jay-Z can suck my d--k, and Roc-A-Fella can suck my d--k."
Tonight (February 11), Game called into DJ Skee's Hype Radio show on Sirius Satellite to speak on the situation. "I keep hearing it man, and people keep talking sh-t about it, Jay is killing you; Bleek, they all [are] killing you; the Young Gunz are killing you on the radio. So what I did in Amsterdam, I did to cover my ass," Game told DJ Skee.
"If Jay takes offense to it and wants to come out, and start this beef or start this so-called war, then I'mma use my creativity as a hip-hop artist and my best judgment to pan out what this is. If I think that he's trying to dismantle my character and my career, then I will come out, but it's something I'm not looking forward to," Game continued.
On Monday (January 7), Jay-Z visited New York's Hot 97 radio station, and dropped an explosive freestyle, which seems to take aim at a specific rapper -- many think it's Game. Jay has since dismissed any rumors that he aimed the freestyle at anyone in particular (see "Jay-Z Dismisses Rumors That He Is Dissing Game In Radio Freestyle").
Even though Game lashed out at Jay-Z on stage, he feels like he was wrong, and doesn't want beef with the retired rap star.
"I had a show in London tonight and I didn't put Jay's name in my show," said Game. "I didn't do that because I kind of felt in the wrong for what I did [in Amsterdam]. I don't wanna beef with Jay. I don't wanna beef with anyone I respect, but at the same time, respect only goes so far."
Th respect for Jay might be enough to stop any further exchange of words between the two, but if Jay's former Roc-A-fella labelmates Memphis Bleek and the Young Gunz want it, Game seems very much willing. "I'll bury those dudes man," Game said nonchantly. "They ain't on my level. I'm on a whole other level; I'll squash them ni--as man."
Game is currently on tour in Europe with Snoop Dogg, and his debut album The Documentary has been certified platinum with over 1 millions units sold in 2 1/2 weeks.
