50 and The Game Unite ?

 |  June 26, 2008

The Los Angeles rap star and his former G-Unit boss have been waging a furious war of words over royalty payments for years.

But The Game insists the feud was never anything that was going to escalate to a level of the East Coast-West Coast battle that ended with Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. six feet under.

And now the retiring rapper insists he’s happy to end the feud.

He tells the Los Angeles Times newspaper, “I ain’t got no beef with 50. All that… was on wax. I never shot at him, he never shot at me. Both of us done said a lot. But we’re not Biggie and Pac.”

And, in a shock statement, The Game has actually thanked 50 Cent for helping to give him a start as a rapper.

He adds, “I appreciate homey for helping me on my way up.”

The Game and 50 Cent last attempted to end their war of words in May 2005 when they declared a truce at a press conference, during which they donated $253,500 to the Boys Choir of Harlem, New York.

But the truce lasted less than a month before The Game publicly criticized 50 Cent’s leadership qualities as the head of the G-Unit rap brand.
