The Game on His Role in Operation Neptune Spear: “I Feel Real Patriotic”
The Game was excited to learn about the role he played in the death of Osama Bin Laden. In Esquire‘s new story on the man who pulled the trigger during Operation Neptune Spear, “The Shooter” reported that he listened to Game’s “Red Nation” while training for combat, saying “It’s about putting blood on the ground. We were the Red Team and we were going to leave some blood.” Today, Esquire followed up with Game, who expressed delight upon learning that his music played a part in the manhunt. “I feel real patriotic. I feel real American,” he said. “I feel like I had — ’cause what if he was listening to, like, John Mayer? Than he probably would’ve missed the shot or something. But I feel like “Red Nation” had him on-point.” Check out the rest of Esquire’s interview with Game here.
