^i agree...the game is tight--real hip hop, or as close as he could get and still get radio time--and the rest of g-unit sucks. i'm glad he has been 'excommunicated.'

One man was wounded in a shooting at New York's Hot 97 Monday night (February 28) just as 50 Cent was making an appearance at the radio station to announce that the Game had been booted from the G-Unit.
Police said a man in his 20s from Los
'How We Do'
Angeles was shot in the left leg during an altercation at the station and was taken to St. Vincent's Hospital. The injury was not serious, and the victim is expected to fully recover.
An NYPD spokesperson offered no additional details about the incident, and initial reports differ as to whether the young man was affiliated with 50 and his entourage. New York's FOX affiliate reports that the rapper and his crew were escorted from the building via alternate exits following the shooting and escaped harm.
The shooting occurred while 50 was appearing on Funkmaster Flex's show, where he told the DJ that the Game had been excommunicated from G-Unit because he feels the Compton rapper isn't loyal.
50 told Flex he was disappointed with comments Game made on the station Saturday night, when the West Coast MC revealed he would not be getting involved in the beefs 50 is stirring up with 'Piggy Bank' (see '50 Cent's LP Pushed Up, Harsh 'Facts' Sound Like Disses On Leaked 'Piggy Bank'').
According to Flex, Game even said he was going to do a song with Nas. 'He's gone,' 50 scoffed. 'He might as well make the record.'
50 also said Game should stop saying 'G-Unit.' 'He thinks he's doing me a favor when he says that.'
During his conversation with Flex, 50 claimed Interscope was going to drop the Game until 50 stepped in and got involved with The Documentary. 50 also insisted that he's making more money off The Documentary than Game is, and that he wrote more choruses than he's credited for.
Believe it or not, Game was on Hot 97 earlier in the evening, talking to host Angie Martinez. When listeners called in to ask about his and 50's problems, Game simply said he was going to continue to make 'good music.' Two nights prior, Game had said on-air that he and 50 did not have to be friends as long as they worked toward that same common goal: making good music.
For weeks there'd been rumors of friction within the G-Unit camp, but they'd always downplayed or outright dismissed the talk, and they even held it together long enough to shoot a joint video for 'Hate It or Love It,' which debuted Monday on 'TRL.'
A rep for Interscope had no comment on the implosion.
In February 2001, Lil' Kim was at Hot 97 when a shooting occurred outside, and she was later indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice for allegedly lying to police and failing to cooperate with their investigation (see 'Lil' Kim Indicted For Lying About Hot 97 Shootout With Capone'). That case is currently in the jury-selection phase.

read some of the other realted stories, 50 will get shot here..jadakiss and fat joe are all pissed over piggy bank, and nas is just being smart and not even saying anything, the game is getting booted from g-unit, black wall-street and piru will kill 50, or fat joe and jadakiss will at least come for him.....
does anyone else think that the rap world is much like that of professional wrestling?? perhaps a lot of this stuff is made up bullshit that is just done as publicity stunts...maybe dre is vince mcman
'Lawrence, what would you do if you had a million dollars?'
'I'll tell you what id do man, two chick s at the same time man'
'thats it? if you had a million youd do two chicks at the same time?'
'damn straight, always wanted to do tha
YES to CamelIT. That's exactly what it sounds like. The rap world is more than a bit of a joke. And as for the "how many records did your last album sell" question... hell, how many records did Ashlee Simpson's last record sell? Doesn't mean she isn't a flaming douchebag. These guys are an extremely violent soap opera, and that's it.
game is a really smart guy who knows alot and is by far the most intelligent rapper/hip-hop artist that i have seen in the resent times. i odnt know if he is actually out of g-unit but he is a very sick rapper to ski to for sure
HA HA HA HA HA HA. wow sorry there I thought you said intelligent. hahahahahaha. Generally if you are speaking about a rapper's intelligence it would help if you spelled recent correctly...and then actually looked at artists who aren't the Game. I personally think the Game is a sick rapper for mainstream; however, calling him the most intelligent rapper in recent times is like saying jessica simpson is the most intelligent pop artist in the recent times.
Look up Sage Francis, Immortal Technique, MC Juice, Brother Ali and then make a comment about "intelligent" rap.
