50 Cent is open to getting in the Verzuz ring with The Game if the opportunity presents itself. During an appearance on “Big Boy’s Neighborhood,” the “Many Men” emcee expressed that a battle with the former G-Unit member would make the most sense, adding an additional rule: “He can’t play no records with my voice on ‘em.”
Despite his tumultuous relationship with The Game, he acknowledged that the Compton rapper has a lot of hit records, noting he’d want him to “benefit” from the record number of song streams typically acquired by Verzuz competitors.
“As much as we fought and argued in the early stages I rather see him benefit from the momentum than someone else,” 50 said. “He’s still going to be part of G-Unit and part of the legacy overall, even if you just want to focus on the break-up.”
The Queens native’s interest in a battle with The Game comes after Wack 100 announced he’s working to bring the former labelmates together for a Verzuz competition.
“I got em to shake hands and function in the same clubs together twice,” he wrote. “With a little help from @unclemurda & @djkayslay, it just might happen. All Respect @50Cent. You told me we was good. Let’s give em what they want. @losangelesconfidential smiles everyday — #BridgingTheGap.”
50 Cent previously said Snoop Dogg’s discography would make him a good opponent, but given his history with his “How We Do” collaborator, a matchup between 50 and The Game would be one for the books.
50 Cent’s relationship with The Game will be the focus of a new STARZ series “Moment in Time: The Massacre.” The show will explore his 12-year relationship with The Game and outline the events that “led to an all-out street war, pitting G-Unit against music impresario Jimmy Henchman, resulting in a murder-for-hire plot and Henchman serving a life sentence in prison,” NME reported.
