Interscope recording artist The Game is currently gearing up for the release of his latest album, LAX, due in stores early July. The Game broke into the music industry by working with 50 Cent ‘s group, G Unit. Eventually The Game left G Unit to write as a solo artist; however, many saw this as an insult to 50 Cent and his G Unit crew. The Game has no intentions of having a bad relationship with 50 Cent or his former G Unit members. According to The Game “flat out hatin’ – it kills, it’s poison and it’s a disease… it’s killing us. And when I say “us” this would be the first time that I spoke of race because I’m of African American decent and so “us” – it’s killing us. Ignorance, it’s gonna kill us.” A native of the streets of Compton, a city known most for its heavy gang activity, The Game has become an influential figure in West Coast gangster rap. “I’m the last of who I am. I’m a gangster rapper, which is a form of rap that hip hop artists today have taken on that was generated by the godfather of gangster rap – Eazy-E…I’m the last gangster rapper that you’ll probably see on the scale of being a superstar in hip hop, period” says The Game.
