The Game Calls Out Meek Mill at Miami Show
It's been a busy week for hip-hop beef. After Kid Cudi called out Kanye West and Drake (both of whom responded on their respective tours) on Twitter, Game took aim at Meek Mill during a show on Thursday night (Sept. 15).
The West Coast rapper -- who is on the promo trail for his forthcoming album 1992 -- offered this explicit message while on stage at Miami's Club Story as part of his Block Wars: 1992 tour.
"I just wanna beat that n---a a-- one good time. When you see me, n---a, square up," said Game. "It ain't gotta be about no guns. F--k Meek Mill. I'm Game." According to footage from the show, he also said, "Meek Mill not snitching on me? I never heard of that. F--k that n---a."
The reason for his comments are unclear as the two collaborated on the soulful 2015 song "The Soundtrack." Separately, both rappers have been embroiled in their own beef as Meek was caught up in a highly publicized feud with Drake while Game has called out Future, Desiigner and Waka Flocka Flame on recent tracks as well as Instagram.
Billboard has reached out to reps for The Game and Meek Mill for additional comment.
UPDATE: The Game released a new track called "92 Bars" that disses Meek Mill. Here, he raps, "Ever since that n---a snitched on me, we just don’t speak." He continues, "See, that shit you got with Drake was like a slow leak/Blood will be dripping like Niagara if I poke Meek/Nicki won’t get no sleep/I’m coming through at 4 a.m./Four deep/Leave his dead body on his soaked sheets.”
The Philadelphia rapper also seems to have responded to the beef on Instagram, sharing a picture of him with girlfriend, rapper Nicki Minaj as he throws up two middle fingers. "U wanna fight?," the caption reads. "Next morning a diss raps...... Then the pre-order links! THE JIG IS UP YALL GUYS REAL RAPPERS! Make sure y'all go support them industry cats!"
According to TMZ, sources close to both rappers allegedly say that the beef stems from a robbery in June involving Sean Kingston, where he was attacked at an L.A. nightclub before his reported $300,000 chain was snatched. Game is said to believe that Mill told authorities that he or his crew may have been involved in the burglary.
