Game Compares 2005 Beef With 50 Cent To Tupac Versus Notorious B.I.G.

From their CGI scenes in the "Hate It Or Love It" video to their broken truce, Game details every step of the fractured relationship with 50 Cent in his VH-1 special.

Based on comments from his VH-1 special, “Behind The Music,” the 2005 beef that led to Game’s split from G-Unit and an exchange of gunshots outside of Hot 97 could have been much worse. Revisiting the situation seven years later, Game said the rift between he and 50 Cent reached its boiling point much earlier when the pair shot the video for his single “Hate It Or Love It.”

The video, which was orchestrated by the animation and directorial collective, The Saline Project, featured heavy use of computer-generated animation. But Game revealed that may not have been an entirely creative decision, because he and 50 couldn’t even be in the same room with each other at the time. Shortly after filming the clip, 50 took to the airwaves to publicly dismiss Game from G-Unit. The pair would eventually agree to a public truce, but not before exchanging disses and gunfire.

“Now I’m pissed,” Game recalled. “I get back to L.A., and you just broke the truce? Are you serious? I wanted to kill him for real. And I thought there was a strong possibility that I would die. I just felt like me and 50 were the modern day Tupac and [The Notorious B.I.G.], and we would have had the same outcome.”

While 50 and Game have traded the occasional diss and/or viral video since their 2005 split, there has been no more violence and both emcees remain alive. In November of 2010, Game issued an apology to 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Eminem and Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine. Watch Game’s full “Behind The Music” special below.

      exactly i'm tired of people thinking Pac and Biggie's death was over some coastal rap ish, it's deeper than that and anyone comparing petty rap beefs to their is disrespectful.

    game talking about 50 pac and big wow surprise...

  • haters

    Hate all you want, but Game is primary reason a lot of these Westcoast rappers are getting noticed(Jay Rock,Kendrick Lamar,Glasses Malone,YG etc) Game used to have Jay Rock ad K dot on all his old mixtapes and is one of the main reasons they got recognized. Game brought the West back, and theres no disputing that, hes the most sucesfull west coast rapper of the past several years and is up there with Dre,Snoop,Cube as the big names in the West Coast

    this why your peers dont fuck with you game gets features but wont be featured.take your time and think about that one


    as much as 50 talk shit even he wouldnt come out his mouth with some shit like this terrible day for hiphop game you wanted to be a well boss bws is dead and so is our career.


    ThIS CLOWN TALK TO MUCH GAME IS A GOSSIP WHORE NOBODY EVEN THOUGHT TO COMPARE SOME SHIT LIKE THAT I KNOW I DIDNT.And you wonder why cali dont fuck with you.PAC AND BIG WAS FRIENDS game you was just a groupie who got put on pac didnt have anybody write for him pac wasnt a dick rider like you.PAC would clown your butterfly fake blood shit pac was on his own shit just like 50 wasnt on that blood and crip bullshit they stand alone game is the derck fisher of rap he need stars around him to make him look worked with G-UNIT for 9 days on your album interscope had you for 2 years doing nothing its time to stop the aint on top of shit 95k and you a west coast artist on a major your state dont fuck with you anymore stop so disgusted with this clown sorry for the rant.

  • IDK

    Game and 50 Cent are still alive. They beefed with each other not because one of them accused the other for robbery and getting shot, and not because they were in opposite coasts. And one of them isn't fat and the other didn't study poetry. Therefore, no, their beef is not like 2Pac and Biggie's beef at all. :P

  • westcoast

    After that I got a lot of respect for game. That he compares to 2pac and biggie is old, but he already told in "why you hate the game: he aint big an I aint pac". But 50's music got fucked up, game is still on top, he really brought the westcoast back. Like Jay Rock said "Game just opend he door and we run throught". Thats it. For me Game is still th best out there. He never dissed Dre, thats all bullshit. Doctors advocate should say enough Fifty started dissing him so he fired back, of course he did. Games life had never been easy the worst time was even after he got rich, but he made it, he released 3 more albums, all of them dope.

  • MBTM

    it's funny cuz these haters seem to not realise the truth, 50 & G Unit sat back, laughed and made money off of Game. They did enough to defend themselves but never cared to go after him and try and end him. I mean they had to defend themselves, Games whole life for 2 + years was all about G UNIT.& 50 even said, like he didn't even know why Game got all fucked in his head & why destroy the dude when he could make mills off him. If G UNIT actually went inn,they could have demolished Game.

    cant compare to 2PAC FAKE ASS 50 GAYASS GAME

  • Shaolin style

    I don't like this nigga at all. He's a snake!! He bit the hand that fed him. If it wasn't for Dre Em and 50 nobody would know who he is. He played along first till his album dropped and then turned around and dissed all 3. Some niggas might call that playin smart but I call it snake and disrespectful. If he really was the "OG" he claims to be he would know a thing or two about respect and not being a slithering bitch. You can't say something and the. Turn around 5 mins later and contradict yourself by saying some diffrent shit. I don't care if he apologized to them and payed tribute to Dre on his sophomore album, the nigga showed his true colors. Besides he hasn't dropped anything hot since his first album, when he was Rollin with them. I hate snakes

    • Music Exec

      you're wrong about that. he was already hot on jt the bigga figga,s albums, so he was going to blow regardless.

    the game is just saying something that was already said, back in o5/06 people already drew the comparisons, i personally think you are just crazy to think 50 & game ain't doing it big in hip hop at the moment. the many mixtapes they dropped past two years each all really great music. the albums they dropped, since their debute maybe not as goodt their first.. but really not many artists in the history of music really top their first.

  • True Sinister

    the beef is similar. Game and 50 were cool then beefed. Jealousy a factor in both. Both had shootings. and last but not least is Jimmy Henchmen

    it's hilarious how everything pales in comparison to whatever Biggie or Tupac did. bet niggas would say "NAH TUPAC BRUSHED HIS TEETH BETTER THAN THIS NIGGA EVER WILL" and all the line of nostalgic niggas will follow on and nod. I don't wanna take anything away from Biggie or Pac, two respectable legends of their time but their beef wasn't ALL that(except the end result...) and Game comparing his beef with Fiddy isn't a big deal. especially the way he explained it

  • jg

    wtf he issued and apology to 50!? when was this? Last thing I remember about this beef was Game making fun of Lloyd Banks sales prior to his own album flopping

      @jg Yeah nigga Game even tweeted recently to 50 saying he wanted to get back to the g unit and call a truce, at which 50 did the right thing and didn't respond. Game is bipolar man

    another case of the media or writer of an article trying to make a story from nothing, if u actually watched the video its a documentary about games life, that beef was as critical to his career as it was for pac with the beef with big. East vs West. go back in 05 and that beef was huge, in 2012 nobody cares. if pac and big was alive no one would care for there beef as well.

    • jg

      actually there are a lot of professional workers who are doing much better financially than rappers. Don't forget that CDs no longer sell, and the artist only gets a minimal portion of each sale. That being said those who can make money off touring pocket a lot more than the average person

  • Anonymous

    Biggie got rattled after Pac destroyed him on Hit Em Up. Subliminal disses? lol Pac didn't mince words. I think if Biggie would have just responded all out, then this probably would have died out soon after. Pac admitted that all the beef was just a ploy to make money. Their bosses were the one's who turned it into something much bigger. Game and 50 were just two cry babies fighting over content control.

    Did i just read the comments below that Biggie and Pac didnt have no real beef? Huh? I guess niggas is rewriting history right...and to say biggie never responded is laughable! Guess niggas dont understand the concept of subliminal or outright shots..lets run down the list Biggie verse on Jay-z "Brooklyn Finest" and the song "Long Kiss Goodnight" off Life After know the song where lil cease admitted later was a diss against 2pac. Cmon hip hop we gots to do better in remember our history!

    Game decides to compare his beefs with 50 cent to legends that shook the music industry business and made it what it is today. I don't think that Game will ever be as good as 2pac or Biggie was.

      Exactly. Game is retarded if he thinks he's going be better or even close to being better than two of the greatest legendary icons that made the biggest impact in Hip hop/Rap history. The classic hip hop era will never be the same compared to the modern day hip hop/rap era. Now dont get me wrong there are still some artists are there that are on the rise towards something great that can influence hip hop like it did before.
