Game has never been a stranger to beef—no rapper who has ever been associated with G-Unit is—throughout his years in the hip-hop world, and he hasn’t been shying away from controversy recently, either. Whether it was his personal problems with his fiancé, his long-running feud with 40 Glocc or his seemingly-random dive into the Tyga/Lil Durk beef—not to mention his predictable reaction to the G-Unit reunion—Game has been in the headlines full force in the past few months. With a new label deal, his charity work and a slew of new projects on the way, Game is firmly back in the public eye. Here are 9 of his most controversial incidents over the past few months.
Game Vs The World
UPDATE: Game calls himself the “Black Marshall Mathers” and goes off on everyone in the industry on his newest single “Bigger Than Me.” He comes at the XXL Freshmen 2014 class, calling them soft. Disses Frank Ocean, Spawn (a comic book vigilante) and pretty much the new generation of hip-hop.
Game Vs His Fiancee
Game was reportedly being investigated by the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department for allegedly beating up his fiancé, Tiffney Cambridge. Cambridge filed a police report following a March 19 incident where she claims Chuck attacked her during a heated argument. As a result of the alleged attack, Cambridge was said to have suffered an injured eye socket and broken nose. Game’s former fiancé Tiffany Cambridge has successfully obtained a restraining order against the rapper. Game, who’s real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, has openly denied the allegations, saying he “never laid a hand on her.” In his open letter, Game criticized Cambridge for refusing any visitation with his kids.
Game Vs 40 Glocc
The beef between Game and 40 Glocc is well documented and it seems to have re-ignited recently over the Internet. Multiple pictures were uploaded to 40 Glocc’s Instragram account that taunted his Compton nemesis. When XXL interviewed 40 Glocc , he says that he doesn’t see his beef with Game ending anytime soon. Game states that he was acting in self-defense in his infamous 2012 fight against 40 Glocc after 40 pulled a gun on him.
Game Vs Donald Sterling
After the recent Donald Sterling scandal Game started a campaign to boycott the Clippers’ games while the L.A. franchise was in a playoff series against the Golden State Warriors. Dubbing his ploy the #EMPTYSEATCAMPAIN, Game is asked all fans to refrain from attending the remaining home games.
Game Vs L.A.’s Supperclub
Things escalated rather quickly outside of the Los Angeles club Supperclub when mutual acquaintances of T.I. and Game got in a physical altercation with the club’s security. A group of men associated with the two rappers were denied entrance to the club and began arguing with security outside. One thing led to another and a member of the crew threw a punch at one of the security guards–which you can clearly hear in the fight video below. The L.A. nightclub issued an official statement removing both T.I. and Game from any involvement of the incident.
Game Vs Lil Durk and G-Count Of the L.E.P. Bogus Boys
The tensions between Tyga and Lil Durk reached it’s peak when T-Raw went ahead and released “ChiRaq to LA” featuring Game. Game goes after 40 Glocc (again) but also puts his focus on Lil Durk. Surprisingly , fellow Chicago native sided with Game and Tyga, even retweeting it on his social networks. However, G Count of the L.E.P. Bogus Boys didn’t like jumped on Nicki Minaj and Lil Herb “Chiraq” beat and responded to Tyga and Game’s record to denounce Game. T.I. stepped in and played a major role in squashing the beef between Game and the L.E.P. Bogus Boys after the two traded shots. Before things escalated between Game and G Count, T.I. intervened by placing a phone call. He got on the phone with both Game and G Count in hopes of putting an end to the beef after they each dropped their respective tracks.
Game Vs LAPD
Game voiced his opinion in regards to the LAPD and Club Lure, calling them racists. Game said the LAPD and Lure have joined forces to ban black people, athletes, and minorities from getting into their club. Later after calling out the LAPD and Club Lure, Game settled the dispute saying that they settle the issues privately. However he did go on to say that the Hollywood division of LAPD were threatening club owners & promoters with closing clubs if black entertainers or athletes were allowed in their clubs.
Game Vs Gucci Mane
Seemingly out of no where Game was a target of a diss from Gucci Mane. Why Gucci Mane is coming at Game is a mystery, but the imprisoned rapper’s team decided to let this track on to the Internet.
Game Vs Kevin Durant
Game bet KD $20,000 and a spot on his basketball team that he could make an NBA-range three-point shot. With NBA players and rappers like James Harden, DeMar DeRozan, and Drake looking on, Game nailed the shot and won the bet. The $20,000 is being donated to a youth league team in southern California. Kevin Durant is denying that he wagered on the rapper’s shooting skills and no check is on the way. Game went on his Instagram to call out KD for being a “sore loser.”
