As the searing responses pour in after the recent police killing of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, not to mention the current tinderbox moment occurring after the shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott by authorities in Charlotte, NC, Game is now rethinking his ongoing rap feud with Meek Mill.
In a video posted by TMZ, the "92 Bars" rapper admitted to having mixed feelings his current war of words with Meek in light of the recent tragic headlines impacting society. According to the rapper, he is "torn."
"I find it a little difficult to be actually beefing with another African American artist," Game said. "On one accord, it's like, I should be on this Black Lives Matter push, and this cops killing African Americans thing. And then on the other side, I got this beef with Meek going. So it's kind of like I'm torn. It makes me look bipolar."
Last week, Game ignited the feud with the release of "92 Bars" and the claim that Meek "snitched" on him. Offended by the claim, Meek responded with "Ooouuu" featuring Dreamchasers affiliates Omelly and Tak, as well as fellow Philadelphia native Beanie Sigel. On Tuesday (September 20), the Compton rapper issued his rebuttal via the six-minute track "Pest Control."
Game's comments echo what Nipsey Hussle expressed over the weekend, calling for an end to the senseless beef in light of the current issues plaguing society.

In his talk to TMZ, Game reflected on the rash of recent police shootings of unarmed black men, calling for a solution. "At this point, you can obviously see that we're being targeted," he shared.
Game, who recently led a peaceful rally with Snoop Dogg and fellow West Coast rappers to meet with the LAPD in July, and Meek, who vowed to refrain from promoting gun violence in his music after DC4, clearly share a common bond that we hope will soon overshadow the senseless friction currently taking place. There's a bigger mission at hand and the world needs influential figures like them and many other to bind together for a greater (and much bigger) cause.
