Rza: “I Could Never Take Game to Court”

Game’s attorney should go ahead and save his suit for another day. Contrary to earlier reports, RZA has no interest in suing the Compton rapper over “Heartbreaker,” a track the Wu-Tang leader produced that was included in Game’s recently released Purp & Patron mixtape.

Rza made the clarification in a message to MTV. “I could never take Game to court,” he told MTV’s Rap Fix blog. “I love that dude. He is my favorite from the new generation of West Coast [MCs].”

In a January interview with, Game expressed concern that RZA had threatened him with a lawsuit. “I think RZA [is] tryin’ to sue about [‘Heartbreaker’] or somethin’,” Game told the site. “That’s fuckin’ crazy. Like, I don’t even know how RZA sues The Game.”

Game later told the L.A. Times that RZA’s concern stemmed from the fact that the beat contained an unauthorized sample. “There’s no love lost. I have nothing but love for RZA. It had to do with sample clearances that neither of us had control of.”

RZA appears to share Game’s good spirits, saying that he’s sure the two will resolve the issue in an amicable manner. He is currently in Shanghai, China filming his directorial debut, The Man With the Iron Fist. —Henry Adaso
