50 Cent is responsible for some of hip-hop's most timeless jams, from "Candy Shop" to everyone's sample of choice in 2020, "Many Men." Yet one manager believes their Los Angeles artist's catalog can rival 50's.
The Game's handler of many years, Wack 100, made headlines recently upon suggesting that his boss take on his one-time adversary 50 Cent in a Verzuz hit-for-hit event.
Against all odds, 50 Cent appears to actually be interested in facing off with The Game, who was added to 50's G-Unit crew for a short period in the early 2000s at the recommendation of Dr. Dre to stir the hype around his debut album, 'The Documentary.'
Talking with Big Boy from his home office (son playing in the background and all) about what his Verzuz headliner could look like, 50 mused, "Maybe [The] Game," before outlining one game-changing condition. "Okay, look. He can't play no records with my voice on 'em," he said.
All trolling aside, 50 brings up a good point since his verses were crucial to the success of some of The Game's most notable songs like "Hate It Or Love It" and "How We Do." How could The Game use 50's own talents against him?!
In 50's mind, he'd prefer to "see [Game] benefit from the momentum than someone else. He’ll still be part of G-Unit and is going to be a part of the legacy overall. Even if you just want to concentrate on the break-up."
Initially, Wack 100 boasted on Instagram, "I got [The Game and 50] to Shake hands and function in the same clubs together twice." He later uploaded a photo of the two looking friendly together in a club.
Verzuz battles are all the rage right now. The second season of Swizz Beats and Timbaland's virtual celebration of rap history kicks off its second season on Thursday night with another pair of on-again, off-again foes: Gucci Mane and Jeezy.
